Team Ico expats go indie to found Friend & Foe with fellow artists
Team Ico expats go indie to found Friend & Foe with fellow artists
June 23, 2014 | By Alex Wawro




A pair of Team Ico expats are among the five founding members of Friend & Foe, a Tokyo-based indie studio that today took the wraps off two projects it has in parallel development: Vane and Dangerous Men.

According to the team's website, Vane (pictured above) is expected to be "an open-world adventure game based on mystery and exploration" for PC and potentially other platforms, while Dangerous Men is envisioned as an "action arcade game based on 80's buddy cop movies, featuring a city-wide explosionfest."

Neither project has a firm release date or a publisher, though the studio claims to be committed to self-funding and self-publishing wherever possible.

It's worth noting that the five founders of Friend & Foe all have artistic backgrounds: Vane project lead Rui Guerrero previously worked as an artist on The Last Guardian with fellow Team Ico expat Rasmus Deguchi.

Thomas Lilja and Dangerous Men lead Victor Santaquiteria both worked as artists on GRIN's Bionic Commando, while Ivar Dahlberg has been working in AAA art asset management and teaching 3D art design with an emphasis on games for years.
