Players embark into a mysterious land as a bird that can transform into a boy.
Friend and Foe AB’s Vane, an adventure game that evokes the likes of The Last Guardian with its mood, is now available for the PS4. You can watch the launch trailer below to see just how brooding and evocative the aesthetic can be. Spoiler: It’s very brooding and evocative.
Vane sees a bird transformed into a child after coming into contact with golden dust. The land you find yourself in itself is mysterious and in ruins – it’s up to the bird/boy to explore it. As you shift between both perspectives, the land will respond in kind and morph into something new. What’s going on, and how does the bird return to normal?
Well, you’ll have to wander on the edge of getting lost to find out. Vane has no shortage of mysterious figures and puzzles to solve. We’ll see if its environment and pacing can deliver on the unique visual style’s promise. Vane is currently available on the PlayStation Store for $24.99.
