Vane is the first game from independent developer, Friend and Foe. Originally established in 2014, this small development team has high hopes for their upcoming title. Vane, which is an atmospheric adventure about unraveling the secrets of an unknown world, will lead players on a journey through shifting sands, ancient ruins, and more as they search for answers to the secrets of the past.
Not much is known about Vane at this point in time, however, based on the trailer we can make a few guesses as the what the game is about. From what we can see in the trailer below, Vane appears to be an adventure platformer following in the same vein as games like Inside, Abzu, and Limbo. In the trailer we see what appears to be a child as she traverses the ruins of the world, solving puzzles along the way.
While we might not know much about the game quite yet, we do have some interesting information to keep in mind about the developers. Friend and Foe, which as we mentioned earlier was only established in 2014, contains some very creative forces behind him. The team, which is made up of Ivar Dahlberg, Rasmus Deguchi, Rui Guerreiro, Thomas Lilja, and Victor Santaquiteria, all have backgrounds in the industry with ties to games like Bionic Commando, Battlefield 3, Killzone, and even The Last Guardian.
What will become of this adventure remains to be seen. Based off the small glimpse we’ve been given though, we’re more than willing to give it a try and see what this stunningly beautiful world has to offer. As of this moment Vane does not have a solid release date. However, the developers have slated the game for a PlayStation exclusive release some time in 2017.

I thought this was a Black Sails/Pirates game about Charles Vane.
