Wander is back on Gamersyde

Wander is back on Gamersyde

Still more boring than boredom itself, Wander received an update yesterday which fixed some of the numerous problems the game has been plagued with since release. The main character now runs by default and there is no invisible endurance bar to prevent you from running after a little while. You are now free to run away for as long as you want, though we doubt you'll manage to escape your inevitable doom. The first person view which made it possible to see the world from the perspective of a dwarf Lilliputian has also been deactivated for the moment, so you don't risk breaking your nose when climbing up the jungle stairs. Sadly, all the changes that have been made do not make the game more interesting to play, and even having Davton join me for this new batch of videos didn't prevent us from dosing off as we were flying towards the floating island. The 10 minutes it took to get there as griffins seemed like forever, as you can see in our second video below. On the bright side, the griffins look quite impressive, but maybe by the time the developers were done with them, they didn't have time to build a real game around them. We can only hope they will manage to make the overall experience more interesting with future updates.

I don't get it... why would you not just go for a walk instead playing this?

if this was set in some photorealistic surburban world, i'd agree. but the last i checked there were no weird creatures wandering around outside...unless you're on acid. lol

Why no developer other than Crytek ever produceced something of some value with CryEngine ?? It is such a wonderful engine, yet nobody can use it well. So many amazing games could have been done with it, unfortunately I still have to see something really worth to be played....Lichdom, Enemy Front, State of Decay, this....all fails, so sad.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This VR rhythm game looks pretty fun: [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (7 Hours ago)
