Tokyo-based independent studio Friend & Foe is on to something. Formed by folks who worked on The Last Guardian, Battlefield 3, Bionic Commando, and Killzone, the developer has two projects in the works -- one of them, Vane, looks immediately compelling.
It's an "open-world adventure game based on mystery and exploration" in a land "inhabited by a strange civilization." You play as a child with "an odd ability."
With that knowledge, look over these gifs. Interested, huh?
Friend & Foe has set up a devlog, noting that a prototype of Vane has been built. "We will be keeping you updated on how the game progresses, delving into features and technical stuff, and are looking forward to hearing all the feedback we can get along the way."
