In A Fisherman’s Tale, which launched last year, players work with infinite, ever smaller and bigger replications of themselves, using real-life movements to pick up, throw, combine and use all kinds of objects to solve puzzles and find their way out of a world where physics are utterly broken.
Published by Vertigo Games, A Fisherman’s Tale is developed by Innerspace VR in co-production with ARTE France with the support of CNC, Ville de Paris New Media Fund and BPI France.
