Vertigo Games, the VR publishing and development arm of PLAION Group, and developer InnerspaceVR announce Another Fisherman’s Tale. The sequel to the critically acclaimed A Fisherman’s Tale is a thrilling VR puzzle adventure that continues the story of Bob the Fisherman. It tells a magical and moving story about the meaning of life that one creates through building and restoring one’s authentic self. Designed to maximize the possibilities of modern VR technology, “Another Fisherman’s Tale” introduces an entirely new set of core mechanics: this time, the player’s own body is the primary puzzle to solve, creating unconventional gameplay, which is based on dismantling and rebuilding your own form in the game.
In this 5-6 hour next-gen VR adventure, players assume the role of Nina, the daughter of the original game’s protagonist, as she discovers models, notes and photos documenting her father’s mysterious past and her own childhood. Remembering Bob’s grandiose stories of pirates, sunken ships, treasure and mystical places, Nina begins to re-enact his adventures, diving headfirst into an imaginative world of memories and imagination. Will she be able to separate fact from fiction and uncover the hidden truth behind the fisherman’s story?
“Another Fisherman’s Tale” completely reinvents the gameplay of its predecessor and envisions a world where you are the puzzle:
DETACH limbs and hands from your body and physically control them from afar. Throw Bob’s hand across a ravine, then make them crawl to retrieve an item or launch your head for a different perspective.
REPLACE each of your limbs with a variety of objects to unlock new abilities. A pirate’s hooked hands can help you climb walls, a crab’s claw can cut through a rope, and a fish’s tail improves your swimming skills.
CONTROL your environment with your puppeteer hands, pick up removed objects, items and tools and interact with each level’s unique layout.
“Another Fisherman’s Tale” is the sequel to “A Fisherman’s Tale”, winner of “Best VR Game of the Year” at AIXR 2019, “Best Interactive Content” and “Best Immersive Work” at Munich Virtual Worlds 2019, ” Best XR Experience for the Gaming Industry at Virtuality 2019, Best Interactive VR Project at Lumiere Awards 2019, and Best Story & Storytelling at Game Connection America 2019. Another Fisherman’s Tale is set in a series of magical worlds and promises a new, compelling journey that questions what it means to build and recreate through time and space.
Another Fisherman’s Tale is in the works for PlayStation VR 2, Meta Quest 2 and PC VR.
