Friend & Foe Shares New Screens For Mysterious Adventure Vane

Vane

With The Game Awards around the corner, Friend & Foe has shared some new screens for its upcoming adventure title Vane.

The screens were shared directly to the developer’s Twitter page, complete with relatively cryptic messages:

Former developers for The Last Guardian banded together to develop the title back in 2014, with the game sharing relatively little updates since release, outside of a few well-timed trailers and screenshot drops.

Vane looks to channel the free-form, ethereal nature of titles such as INSIDE, and with the developer’s Fumito Ueda sponsored pedigree, the game is bound to be an indie success. Story-wise, the project tasks players with unraveling the secrets of an unknown land, while hopefully finding their place in it.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
