HOOK, LINE AND SINKER: ANOTHER FISHERMAN’S TALE REELS IN MAY 11th RELEASE DATE
Rotterdam (NL), April 17th, 2023 – Ahoy, sailor! Today Vertigo Games, the VR publishing and development arm of the PLAION Group as well as developer InnerspaceVR have revealed Another Fisherman’s Tale, the sequel to the critically-acclaimed A Fisherman’s Tale, will launch on May 11th for the PS VR2, Meta Quest 2, and all PC VR platforms. To celebrate the announcement, Vertigo and InnerspaceVR have shared a brand-new gameplay showcase video with developer commentary from Creative Director and Co-Founder Balthazar Auxietre and Game Director Alexis Moroz, showcasing the first portion of the game’s second chapter, including a daring escape and demonstrations of the game’s core body-augmenting mechanics. Check out the new showcase video below!
Another Fisherman’s Tale was developed from the ground-up to maximize the capabilities of modern VR tech, completely revamping the gameplay of its predecessor: this time, the player’s own body is the key to solving the puzzles, creating unconventional mechanics based on dismantling and rebuilding their in-game form. Players take on the role of Nina—the daughter of the original game’s protagonist—as she discovers models, notes and photographs that document her father’s mysterious past, as well as her own childhood. Recollecting Bob the Fisherman’s grandiose stories of pirates, sunken ships, treasures and mystical locations, Nina begins re-enacting his adventures and dives head-first into an imaginative world of memory and fantasy. Will she be able to separate fact from fiction and uncover the hidden truth behind the Fisherman’s tale?
Featuring a total reinvention of its predecessor’s mechanics, Another Fisherman’s Tale imagines a world where YOU are the key to unlocking each puzzle:
● DETACH limbs and hands from your body and physically control them remotely. Throw Bob’s hand across a ravine and then make it crawl to retrieve an object, or send your head elsewhere for a different view of things.
● REPLACE any of your limbs with a variety of objects to unlock new skills. Pirate hook hands allow you to climb up walls, a crab’s claw can cut through a rope in a pinch, and a fish’s tail will improve your swimming ability.
● CONTROL your environment with your puppeteering hands, picking up distant objects, items and tools and interacting 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 the Munich Virtual Worlds 2019, “Best XR Experience for the Gaming Industry” at Virtuality 2019, “Best Interactive VR Project” at the Lumiere Awards 2019, as well as “Best Story & Storytelling” at Game Connection America 2019. Taking place across an assortment of magical worlds, Another Fisherman’s Tale promises a new captivating journey that asks what it means to build and rebuild ourselves through time and space.
