Rotterdam (NL), December 14th 2018: With an all-new 360° Story Video, Vertigo Games, Innerspace and ARTE today announce the mind-bending VR adventure game A Fisherman’s Tale will launch on PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality on 22 January 2019.
In A Fisherman’s Tale, you live a cozy, isolated life until one day you realize you’re just a little wooden puppet trapped inside the model of a lighthouse! Worse, the model is replicated inside and out on an infinite recursive loop. Luckily, you quickly find out you can collaborate with none other than yourself to solve the multi-dimensional riddles that pave the way to discovering your true reality.
Co-produced by ARTE, the European culture channel and digital network with a focus on creation and innovation, A Fisherman’s Tale is a narrative VR production that at its heart tells a story about breaking away illusions to find truth. And who knows, you may even discover something about yourself along the way…

About A Fisherman’s Tale
Bend and twist reality in A Fisherman’s Tale, the mind-bending VR puzzle adventure game in which being turned upside down and inside out is not merely a play on words.
Playing as Bob, a tiny fisherman puppet, you live alone in your 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 as you try to leave your cabin with the help of some uncanny sidekicks, you realize what’s waiting outside is not at all what you expected… http://afishermanstale-game.com
