    Vane
    3 and a half hours of frustration
    Vane at a glance looks like a team ico like game, and I’m in love with these types of games… so I was so excited to play this one.. And unfortunately it’s just a broken feeling frustrating experience... Here you play as a bird boy… you transform back and forth… you take bird form to gather other birds around the different maps to help you progress

    Vane at a glance looks like a team ico like game, and I’m in love with these types of games… so I was so excited to play this one.. And unfortunately it’s just a broken feeling frustrating experience...
    Here you play as a bird boy…
    you transform back and forth… you take bird form to gather other birds around the different maps to help you progress through the next section of the game, and you take the form of a boy to run through the different little sections.. Unfortunately none of these sections or levels are fun to explore or play through…
    Both forms are frustrating to play as... the bird form feels awkward and stiff… I felt hardly any control as I’m trying to perch on items to call for my bird friends to help, and as the boy I feel you just move so slow that its just infuriating to run through sections..
    and the frustration here just deepened for me towards the end where the game just started breaking on me…
    I fell through a map and entered an endless death loop.. backed out into the menu and lost an insane amount of progress, but I pushed through… the game wasn’t awful and I wanted to see all it had to offer… so I finally find the solution to the spot I was stuck in, bringing these sections back to life with this orb im pushing around with my other little bird boy friends…
    an then one of them somehow gets stuck up on a ledge, making it impossible for me tpo progress the game, and once again I had to back out.. in hopes that okay I mad a nice chunk of progress, surely the game wont set me all the way back to the beginning of this chapter… and it did.. I wanted to cry..
    the checkpoints are awful for how broken this game feels…
    vane sadly looks far better than it actually is..
    There is a positive of a bunch of silver and gold trophies, but aside from that.. This is a highly skippable title that offers nothing but frustration, from its mechanics to its bugs….
    I give Vane
    a 4.5/10

    I just loved it. Is a exploration for another misterious world . I loved to fly as a bird. The visuals are awesome. The soundtrack is good. If you complete all the tasks, and there are so so many, the gameplay surpass 15 hours. Its my kind of game , perfect after a long and hard workday.

    Completamente tedioso, não parece um jogo bem estruturado apesar de Indie, e se mostra muito fraco até mesmo para carregar tal nome...

    This game is grossly misunderstood. Really interesting and unique game with incredible visuals and music. This is bar none the best use of the Unity Engine out there. The visual storytelling and atmosphere are top notch as well.

Really interesting and unique game with incredible visuals and music. This is bar none the best use of the Unity Engine out there. The visual storytelling and atmosphere are top notch as well. It IS held back a bit by bugs and horrible checkpoints (don't exist if you exit and start game again, starts you from the beginning of 1 of 5 chapters you most recently arrived at losing upwards of 30 minutes of progress at times). That said, this game should be played front to back in one sitting. Good Game!

    The striking visual language of Friend & Foe’s stunning world is a painful glimpse of how wonderful an experience Vane could have been. Instead, it’s clumsy, careless, and wholly incoherent. [Issue#159, p.90]

    A missed opportunity. Vane had a lot of potential, but in the end it wasn't used in terms of creating a compelling game.

    The thought behind Vane is fantastic and artistic, which is shown by the creative style and mysterious gameplay. It's a pity that gameplay is very frustrating, mainly due to bad controls and worlds that do not render well.
