VR publisher and developer Vertigo Games has announced a brand-new VR puzzle game Another Fisherman’s Tale. Another Fisherman’s Tale is a sequel to the critically acclaimed A Fisherman’s Tale and it is also a mind-bending VR puzzle-adventure game. Another Fisherman’s Tale will continue the story of Bob the Fisherman while crafting a magical and moving narrative about the meaning we create in life by building and rebuilding our authentic selves.
We also have the official reveal trailer for Another Fisherman’s Tale below which shows us the brand-new adventure in action. Check it out:
Another Fisherman’s Tale is developed from the ground up to maximize the capabilities of modern VR tech. The game also introduces a set of all-new core mechanics as this time around, the player’s own body is the primary puzzle to be solved, creating unconventional gameplay based on dismantling and rebuilding their in-game form. Another Fisherman’s Tale will be a 5-6 hour adventure where we will step into the shoes of Nina, the daughter of the original game’s protagonist.
Nina will discover models, notes, and photographs that document her father’s mysterious past, as well as her own childhood. Recollecting Bob’s stories of pirates, sunken ships, treasures, and mystical locations, she will begin to re-enact his adventures and dive head-first into an imaginative world of memory and fantasy. Featuring a total reinvention of its predecessor’s mechanics, Another Fisherman’s Tale brings a brand-new adventure where you are the puzzle.
Key features of Another Fisherman’s Tale include:
- 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.
A confirmed release date for the game has not been announced at this point however the Steam page for the game lists the title as ‘Coming Soon’. On PC, Another Fisherman’s Tale will be released for Meta Quest 2, SteamVR, Oculus, and Viveport, and apart from these VR headsets, the game will also be released on the newly released PS VR2.
