This is a development team collaboration I didn’t expect to ever write about. Vertigo Games, creators of the excellent zombie shooter, Arizona Sunshine, and Innerspace, creators of the beautifully captivating La Peri, are joining forces for a mind-bending VR puzzle game called A Fisherman’s Tale.
In A Fisherman’s Tale you play as Bob, a tiny puppet fisherman that lives alone in an equally tiny cabin, unaware of the outside world. Suddenly, a big storm comes rolling in and you’ve got to figure out a way to get to the top of the lighthouse and turn on the light.
The game is being developed by Innerspace directly, co-produced by ARTE France with the support of CNC, Ville de Paris New Media Fund and BPI France. Vertigo, meanwhile, is chipping in with support in the areas of marketing and distribution as a pseudo-publisher.
We don’t know much abotu the game yet other than it’s being positioned as a “mind-bending” puzzle game full of quirky sidekicks, interactive environments, and Inception-level trickery with lighthouses inside of lighthouses inside of lighthouses. Bioshock would be proud.
A Fisherman’s Tale is slated for all major VR platforms, including PSVR, Rift, Vive, and Windows VR, when it releases later this year. We’ll be going hands-on with the game at Gamescom 2018 later this month, so check back soon for more details.
