Spirits of Xanadu is a new indie game which has just been released on Steam and we must say we don't really know what to think about it. Developed by two men (Allen Trivette and Lee Williams), this first person adventure/shooter game is a sort of tribute to System Shock, without the RPG aspect. The non textured 3D is reminiscent of a past long gone but that we don't mind really. The same can't be said of the controls when playing with a gamepad, which we strongly advise not to. Some will say it makes sense as it is after all a PC title, and it's true, but since the game is fully compatible with controllers, it's a bit of a shame aiming feels so stiff and awkward. Combat is not particularly interesting anyway, thankfully exploration, though repetitive, is quite atmospheric. Wandering through the corridors of the deserted spaceship Xanadu, you'll find audio logs and strange pages, something we think is the main interest of the game. Check out our videos and make up your own mind about it.
@asdfg: By comfortable, I meant for my eyes not in the sense that horror games should be comfortable and less scary. I loved how scary/jumpy it was. It would have been just as scary in 3rd personview. (58 minutes ago)
Could you even rent time on a machine like that though? I bet like 75% of the people who "rode" the attraction would puke :D (4 Hours ago)
I'm pretty sure that rig costs a lot more than that :P (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: Very scary. What if you accidentally drop your $1000 headset? (4 Hours ago)
