The Night Fisherman and The Outcast Lovers

Two short and well realised interactive narratives. The promise is that soon there we’ll see much more of their work.

Far Few Giants have been working on larger projects for a few years now, putting together short VR narrative projects. Recently the two developers have broken off on their own to make The Night Fisherman and The Outcast Lovers, both available to play for free right now.

The Night Fisherman and The Outcast Lovers tell an intense, interactive story of an immigrant in the English Channel and the people that have a chance to harbour and help them. Both have arresting visuals that are saturated with a stark colour scheme and each take only 10 minutes to play. The first of the two is a little clumsy with some missing assets, but the writing and the story more than let you overlook some rough edges. 

Both games are currently available on itch.io where you can pay what you want and also find their extensive back-catalogue of shorter collabs for game jams past. The Night Fisherman is also on Steam with The Outcast Lovers joining it on the 29th July. Far Few Giants are set up on Patreon offering a new narrative game every month and if they continue with this quality production then they’re more than worth supporting.

Far Few Giants are working towards Ring of Fire, adetective noir puzzler set in the solarpunk utopia of New London’. You can play the prologue for this right now on itch.io and Steam with the full game set to drop some time in 2021.
