Pretty puzzler Kine is announced

Kine is one of those titles that annoys me the moment I hear about it, because I deserve to be playing it right now but some team of artists is working really hard on it so they won't just give it to me. Give it to me, you crazy kids. I have been a good boy all year and I am delighted by what you…
