A narrative story experience following The Night Fisherman is available for free on itch.io from indie developer Far Few Giants. This short and powerful story takes place on the shores of the British coastline.
Players are the night fisherman who is out trying to catch some fish. A boat approaches as one is baiting their rod. Upon arrival, a man is seen on the deck who is calm, civilized, and packing a shotgun slung across his back. The question remains, what is going to happen next?
The two-person team plans to offer a total of twelve short narrative experiences over the next year. Each narrative is planned as a new episode each month and will be their own self-contained stories. All of these episodes will be free and available on the Far Few Giants itch.io storefront.
Players can also follow the progress of the future short narrative games on the Far Few Giants Twitter account and itch.io storefront.
The Night Fisherman is available to play for free on the Far Few Giants itch.io page for Windows PC and macOS. The next entry into the 12 episode narrative adventure is planned for the end of June.
