Yes, it is cool. It gives tech noir 80s vibes with its aesthetics and synth music. It is like a mix of Vigilante 8 games, Cyberpunk, Mad Max and The Running Man.
I recommend to watch its early access and full release trailers first to be sold on it.




Nice I am including it in the update!!

Me too until find them on Steam again. I am surprised about the low sales of Vane
I'm not that surprised actually. It lacked a lot of marketing and hype. It had some interest due to his previous Sony exclusives but he didn't hype himself and his game enough for this game to be a big hit.

Don't like the art too much but the actual gameplay looks really promising in a Jet Set Radio style none of the other wannabes seem to get. Check the youtube channel for much nicer raw gameplay footage than the trailer which I don't find that great.
