The VR developer and publisher came out on top in the ‘VR Game of the Year’ and were nominated in the ‘Best Out-of-Home VR Entertainment’ category.

London (UK), 12th November – Vertigo Games and Innerspace have won at the VR Awards with their VR title A Fisherman’s Tale in the ‘VR Game of The Year’ category. The Dutch VR publisher won the prestigious title for the VR puzzle adventure A Fisherman’s Tale and were nominated for ‘Out-of-home VR Entertainment of the Year’ category for Arizona Sunshine – LB VR Edition.

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.

In A Fisherman’s 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. Published by Vertigo Games, A Fisherman’s Tale is developed by INNERSPACE VR in co-production with ARTE France with the support of CNC, Ville de Paris New Media Fund and BPI France.

The mind-bending VR puzzle adventure is already available on PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets since its initial launch and is set to launch on Oculus Quest soon.
