Ex-Team Ico dev's fantasy adventure Vane is shaping up nicely

New footage revealed in behind-the-scenes video.

Fantasy adventure Vane, a project made by a handful of Tokyo-based expats including a couple of ex-Team Ico artists at fledgling studio Friend & Foe, has revealed some all new gameplay footage.

The following behind-the-scenes video advertising Unity contains a fair bit of new footage of this "minimalist, exploration mystery game".

Based on what we've seen of Vane, it focuses on a boy wandering the desert who can transform into a bird. Much like the similarly stylish desert-based Journey before it, Vane appears to be a rather open-ended mystery as players try to piece together what's happening in the world. But boy oh boy is it pretty!
