Thanks for letting us know about Xing. Amazing trailer is an understatement GreyFuss. The graphics and soundtrack are incredible. This looks like a must have game Smile

The only "Problem" is that this game is keyboard controlled (afaik) , which is unacceptable for a point'n'click 1st person adventure.

Tsampikos

Did you see it somewhere that it was keyboard controlled only? I am with you about point and click. The only keyboard I can tolerate is is using the mouse for direction and the up arrow or w key for walking. Then you can just program one of the many buttons on the mouse for the keystroke and virtually make the game mouse controlled. On the games web site they state the game has Mouse/Keyboard controls so that is what I am hoping for.

I can't remeber exactly, but I knew that Keyboard is involved in Xing, which I don't like. Mayebe I would do what you suggest Greyfuss.

It does work great that way. If you haven't played Five Cores it works perfectly with that game. Depending on how many keystrokes a game has some mouse have several buttons you can program. For instance if you have to hit a key to open inventory. My mouse has an additional 4 buttons and the wheel that can be programed with whatever I like. Gives you a chance to enjoy some good games that are passed over because they aren't point & click.

Here is what the preview at AG has to say...

The free-roaming, full 3D environments are also a change from the usual first-person puzzlers, being controlled with the standard keyboard/mouse combination.
