Vertigo Games and Innerspace VR have won at the VR Awards in the ‘VR Game of The Year’ category with their VR title A Fisherman’s Tale, only weeks ahead of the game’s launch on Oculus Quest later this year. In addition to winning the prestigious award, Vertigo Games’ Arizona Sunshine – LB VR Edition was nominated in the ‘Out-of-Home VR Entertainment of the Year’ category.
The award was announced at the third International VR Awards in London last night. The annual event is dedicated to outstanding achievements in the virtual reality industry with over 300 representatives of the VR industry present to celebrate the world’s most influential creators in immersive technology.
Set in a world of infinite recursion, A Fisherman’s Tale is a journey of introspection and extrospection that requires the player to reach both inside and outside themselves if they want to uncover the truth of an unusually tall tale. 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.
A Fisherman’s Tale is available now on PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Later this year, a new audience of VR players can bend and twist reality when the game launches for Oculus Quest.
