Two Ex-The Last Guardian Developers Forming New Indie Game Studio
They also announced new games that will release ‘when they are done.’ Welp.
Two developers who were formerly working on The Last Guardian with Team ICO have formed a brand new indie game studio, Friend & Foe; Rasmus Deguchi and Rui Guerreiro, who previously worked as character artists on The Last Guardian, are the co-founders.
Friend & Foe has also announced its first game- Vane, which is an open world adventure game about a child who finds himself stuck in an odd land with some strange abilities. Vane has currently been announced only for PC, although it appears that the developers will also announce other platforms in the future.
As for when Vane will release? In true Team ICO tradition, we don’t quite know. The official release date for the game is ‘when it is done,’ which sounds about right for a studio formed by two guys who worked on a game for three years that still hasn’t released.
Friend & Foe also announced a second game called Dangerous Men, an action arcade game that is apparently inspired by 1980 era buddy cop movies. But that’s pretty much all we know about it. No wait, we know that it too will be released ‘when it’s done.’
The games sound interesting, but let’s just hope they all manage to release before The Last Guardian does. Which… really shouldn’t be difficult.
