The Tale Of The Tiny Fisherman


“The Tale of the Tiny Fisherman” is a VR story driven puzzle game, inspired by escape rooms, nautical lore and mind-bending games such as Portal or Braid.
You play as a little wooden puppet looking like a fisherman, stuck inside the model of a lighthouse.
This model is replicated inside and outside of the room – like russian dolls – and when you look at it, you can see a small version of yourself, replicating your every moves and looking at an even tinier version of the model. The same goes if you look outside of your room, where a giant version of you will look toward bigger and bigger replications of the world.
You have to use these different scales to solve puzzles, cooperating with the bigger and smaller versions of yourself, and changing the size of objects by placing them inside or outside the model.
Your ultimate goal is to reach the top of the lighthouse to light it, as a storm is rising, and a boat is lost at sea. On your journey, you will meet colorful characters that will help or require things from you.
Who are you? Where are you? Why is everyone so afraid of the upcoming storm? And will you be able to reach the top of the lighthouse and escape this strange world?
