The bad news? One of our most anticipated VR experiences of the year is no longer arriving in 2018. The good news? It’s still not very far away.
Innerspace’s A Fisherman’s Tale, which is being published by Arizona Sunshine developer Vertigo Games, is set to launch sometime in January 2019, the pair announced today. The game had previously been scheduled for a late 2018 release but we’re not too surprised to see it slip given the announcement comes at the end of November. It’ll be released on PSVR, Rift, Vive and Windows VR headsets for $14.99.
A Fisherman’s Tale blew us away when we saw it at Gamescom earlier this year. “Overall the team is developing four main chapters with a prologue and epilogue to boot, all of which it reckons will take at least two hours to see through,” we said. “I feel like sharp-minded gamers will be able to run through it even faster than that, but the quality of the experience and its puzzles will more than make up for it. They say brevity is the soul of wit and, in the case of A Fisherman’s Tale, I’m pretty confident that’s going to be the case.”
The story-driven experience has some amazing tricks up its sleeve that you can see in the trailer above. Personally, we’re not watching as we don’t want to give any of the solutions away.
