Culture VR - A Fisherman’s Tale

A Fisherman’s Tale


A Fisherman’s Tale is a story-driven puzzle game for VR, inspired by nautical legends and lore, escape rooms, and mind-bending games.

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 you realize what’s waiting outside is not at all what you expected

Innerspace VR joins forces with ARTE to stage this bitter-sweet tale with stunning art direction, a two-way story supported by the irony of its authors. A Fisherman’s Tale is published by Vertigo Arcades.



This film is part of the VR Selection of the Institut français, which offers members of France’s overseas cultural network (the cultural services of French embassies, Instituts français and Alliances Françaises) a selection of French virtual reality contents for non-commercial use, within their venues or those of their partners.
