A Fisherman’s Tale is a mind-bending VR puzzle experience which tells the story of Bob who lives alone in a tiny cabin; oblivious to the world outside. As he hears a radio broadcast forecasting a storm, Bob has to get to the top of the lighthouse in order to turn on the light. Unfortunately for the protagonist, what he meets outside is not really what he had expected.
A Fisherman’s Tale is a narrative VR experience which unveils a story about breaking away illusions to find truth and is co-produced by ARTE; an European culture channel and digital network which focuses on creation and innovation.
Here’s what Gilles Freissinier, Head of Web Department at ARTE France had to say about this puzzle title:
“ A Fisherman’s Tale is an amazing story full of surprising and playful gameplay. It explores immersive writing in virtual reality and brings an unprecedented proposition to VR gaming. ARTE is a proud collaborator on A Fisherman’s Tale together with its talented creators at Innerspace and publisher Vertigo Games. ”
