Having announced unusual puzzle experience A Fisherman’s Tale just before Gamescom this year, developer InnerspaceVR and publisher Vertigo Games (Arizona Sunshine) have just announced that it’ll see a worldwide, multiplatform release in January 2019.
One of the more interesting videogame’s VRFocus came across at Gamescom 2018, A Fisherman’s Tale is a multi-dimensional mind-bender by all accounts, with InnerspaceVR really playing with scale and space.
You play as Bob, a tiny fisherman puppet who lives alone in a tiny cabin, oblivious to the world outside. When your radio broadcasts a storm alert, you have to get to the top of the lighthouse and turn on the light. But leaving the cabin is not that easy, let alone getting to the top. So with the help of some unusual sidekicks, you venture outside, however, it’s time to expect the unexpected.
The title is a single-player co-op experience of sorts, where the laws of physics are completely broken and you team up with multiple dimensions of yourself to solve puzzles. And within these dimensions you can also play with scale, finding lighthouses within lighthouses, having to use this paradigm to make objects smaller or larger as required.
Check out VRFocus’ preview of A Fisherman’s Tale which stated: “Even with this brief demo A Fisherman’s Tale offers an enticing concept and novel change to the usual puzzle mechanic found in VR. Featuring a charming visual design all the mechanics have been created to be accessible for players of all ages. This really is a videogame VRFocus wants to see more of, and definitely comes high on our list of titles played at Gamescom 2018.”
A Fisherman’s Tale will be available for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets in January 2019. For additional updates, keep reading VRFocus.
