Another Fisherman’s Tale Gameplay Review

Building upon the success of its predecessor, Another Fisherman’s Tale introduces players to a fresh set of mind-bending puzzles and recursive gameplay mechanics. As Bob, you will once again find yourself navigating nested realities, manipulating objects to overcome obstacles and solve intricate puzzles. The game pushes VR boundaries and challenges players to think creatively as they navigate through various mysterious locations and surreal environments.

There is a very detail tutorial that walks you through all the steps that you need to learn in how to play and navigate the game. The controls are fun and immersive. You switch out various parts of your puppet fisherman body to interact with the environment. For example, you will acquire a claw at a certain point. You can swap your hand out for the claw and then you can shoot your hand and cut ropes in the distance. As you open and close your claw on your VR controller the claw will open and close in the game. It makes for good VR immersion.
