FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

You are a night fisherman.

You are smuggling goods into England.

You spot a boat approaching.

The man on the boat has a shotgun slung across his back.

What do you do?

The Night Fisherman is the first of twelve short narrative experiences to be released by developers Far Few Giants. This short but impactful story is set upon the stunning shores of the British coastline. The tranquil backdrop contrasts starkly with this tale of eerie confrontation between man and inhumanity.

 

Game features

  • Intense maritime story set in the English channel.
  • Surreal, beautiful seascape.
  • Choose your fate: will you get out of this alive?
  • Cinematic experience where you direct the camera.
  • Surging orchestral soundtrack by Richard Campbell.
  • An homage to one of cinemas greatest scenes
  • Roughly 5-10 minutes in length.

The Night Fisherman Steam page!

The Night Fisherman originally release on popular independent game platform itch.io at the end of May. Since its release, the game has been downloaded over 11,000 times and even featured as part of the Bundle for Racial Justice, which raised over $8M in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

 

What press have said about The Night Fisherman

 

Kotaku

“Deal(s) with racism and violence in a way that feels both poignant and relevant to this moment.”

Adventure Games Podcast

“Says more in ten minutes than most games can say in ten hours.”

Designer Plays

“The Night Fisherman tells a poignant tale, beautifully presented, that explores the human condition; two different ways of seeing our world and its inhabitants, one of empathy and one of cruelty.”

A sequel to The Night Fisherman is currently being developed by Far Few Giants and is set to release in July. You can follow the progress of the future short games on the Far Few Giants itch.io storefront or by following them on Twitter
