Our top pick of the week?
We love a game with beautiful atmosphere and Vane looks to be overflowing with it! Looking like a love child of Journey, Ashen and The Last Guardian we are excited to learn more about the mysterious world Friend & Foe Games have brought us. Starting the year with another great indie title is a phenomenal way to begin 2019 and we hope there are plenty of other indie hits.
