A Fisherman's Tale

ROTTERDAM, NL – November 14, 2019: Vertigo Games and InnerspaceVR are excited to announce The VR Awards’ VR Game of the Year 2019 A Fisherman’s Tale will arrive on Oculus Quest on November 27, 2019 where it will welcome a new audience to its mind-bending world. Pre-orders are now available on the Oculus Store.

Vertigo Games and InnerspaceVR revealed a sneak peek at the Quest version of the game with 4 comparison screenshots.

A Fisherman’s Tale is a unique, singleplayer co-op game. Players work with infinite, ever smaller and bigger replications of themselves to solve puzzles and find their way out of a world where physics are utterly broken.

The critically acclaimed title has been nominated for and took home several awards and most recently was crowned VR Game Of The Year at The VR Awards earlier this week. The development team cannot wait to share their surreal experience with a new audience on Oculus Quest.

“We have been amazed by the power of the Quest and we are happy to share that we did not have to make any compromises bringing A Fisherman’s Tale to the platform,” says InnerspaceVR Creative Director Balthazar Auxietre. “From the start, we knew the accessibility of the Quest would be a great fit for the game as it allows any player – VR veterans to newcomers – to jump in anywhere and at any time, turn their surroundings upside down and inside out, and solve its all-encompassing puzzles with untethered ease.”

About A Fisherman’s Tale

Bend and twist reality in The VR Awards’ VR Game Of The Year 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… afishermanstale-game.com
