(Video) A Fisherman's Tale - "The Storm" 360 Story - PS VR

2019-01-11


In A Fisherman's Tale, an upside-down PS VR adventure, you play as Bob -
a tiny fisherman puppet - and 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 with the help of some uncanny sidekicks, you
realize what's waiting outside is not at all what you expected...

BOB: Once upon a
time not so long ago,
0:15
there was a fisherman's
puppet carefully made by hand.
0:20
The puppet lived a simple life
inside the model lighthouse
0:23
with everything in its place.
0:26
His routine never changed.
0:28
He would brush his wooden teeth,
0:30
warm the place up,
0:31
dust off his lucky seashell,
0:33
and finally open the window
to check the weather.
0:39
[MUSIC PLAYING]
0:45
Exhausted by his routine, the
puppet would rest his aching,
0:49
wooden bones in his
very own rocking chair,
0:54
go to sleep,
0:56
and dream in a place where the
smell of paint and glue
1:01
was always fresh,
1:02
where the world was simple
and fit together just right.
1:06
The puppet would follow his
routine and dream of models...
1:11
[MUSIC PLAYING]
1:19
...until one night the storm
came back
1:23
and with it all the fears I was
trying to avoid with the model.
1:30
MAN OVER RADIO:
Fishing season has begun,
1:33
and stocks are looking
thin again this year.
1:35
We all know there's a big catch
waiting out there somewhere,
1:39
but hold your hauling lines.
1:40
Reports are saying a
huge storm is blowing in.
1:44
It might be nothing, but better
safe than salvage I always say.
1:48
Coming up next, another hour
of thrilling nautical news
1:52
after these messages.
2:02
BOB: My father
always wanted more.
2:04
Further always further.
2:07
And here's what happened.
2:11
MAN OVER RADIO: Come in trawler.
Come in trawler.
2:13
If you can hear us,
return to port immediately.
2:16
I repeat, return to
port immediately.
2:26
[SCREAM]
2:29
BOB: I just
couldn't get any lower.
2:31
Well, that's what I thought.
2:35
FATHER: Don't forget, boy.
2:36
Come back with a hull full of
fish or don't come back at all.
2:44
BOB: After the shipwreck,
2:46
I found a new home
in the old lighthouse,
2:49
a place to recover.
2:52
I wanted to forget
all the failures,
2:54
everything.
2:56
A new routine started, but
it was hard to forget I had
2:59
completely failed to
find my role in life.
3:03
And I had a lot of time
to kill in the lighthouse
3:06
waiting for
the hours to pass.
3:09
That's when I remembered the
joy of building models as a kid,
3:14
a small world you could control
without any danger or harm.
3:19
I didn't have any
idea of what to build.
3:21
I wasn't a very creative person.
3:24
So I started to make
my old boat first.
3:27
It was thrilling to see the
exact replica of a real object.
3:31
Then I decided to make
the old lighthouse itself.
3:35
It was all there
exactly the same.
3:39
There was even a
tiny version of me.
3:41
Yes.
3:43
In the model I could
finally find a place for myself,
3:47
there.
3:51
More.
3:52
Further, always further.
3:54
I was so enthralled.
3:56
When I placed my puppet
inside, I had a strange feeling.
3:59
It was like it was moving.
4:02
It was controlling me instead.
4:04
Yes.
4:06
In fact, I could get even lower
4:08
because I finally woke up one
day trapped in the model.
4:13
And this
fisherman's puppet was me.
