A Fisherman’s Tale is one of the most surprisingly excellent VR games of the year and it’s finally coming to Oculus Quest today by developer Innerspace and publisher Vertigo Games.
From early looks A Fisherman’s Tale always looked like it would be a charming and worthwhile experience, but it certainly surpassed our expectations when it first released way back in January. Earlier today during the Holiday VR Showcase we had the pleasure of revealing the launch trailer for the Oculus Quest port of the game, which you can check out down below or over on the UploadVR YouTube channel:
In A Fisherman’s Tale you play as a puppet confined to a little lighthouse home, but in the middle of the cabin is a small model of your dwelling. If you look inside you’ll see a smaller version of yourself matching your every move. It’s full of ingenious puzzles and some of the most creative mind-bending moments of VR we’ve seen yet.
When Jamie reviewed it, he had almost nothing but glowing praise: “A Fisherman’s Tale might be the first [VR game] to achieve a perfect storm of gameplay, immersion and narrative in a single experience. Though brief, it fuses experience and interactivity to really show what this medium is capable of. This is exactly what old seadogs aren’t meant to be capable of; something genuinely new.”
Cutting the cord and going wireless with 360 inside-out tracking would be a great way to play so this is a great fit for Quest. And if you’re interested then you’re in luck — A Fisherman’s Tale is out on Oculus Quest already as of today!
