Be a manga protagonist!
A powerful visual storytelling tool taking inspiration from manga and with the intent to bring film language to VR narratives.
These stylized pop-ups help make you feel like the protagonist who's going to save the day and the town!
Of course there's fishing.
Some of the activities you can look forward to:
. . . & there's still more!
Yes, the Hatoful Boyfriend creator.
The very same wonderful writing that brought you to care about pigeons now brings you to a small fishing town with a landshark problem.
Meet the eclectic characters brought to life by Moa's writing – maybe even see a cameo of everyone's favorite pigeon . . . ?
Maybe you'll recognize someone?
The various townsfolk you will meet are fully voiced by talented VAs. Among them are such talents as:
1 / Lost? CHECK YOUR WATCH
Map not helping you find your objective?
Check the reddish tab on your watch – it will point you in the right direction. Be sure to also check for pillars of light!
2 / move dialogue boxes
If a dialogue box gets in the way or you can't see it properly, point at it and hold the grip button to move it up and down.
3 / customize your hands
In the menu's PLAYER Tab you can change the skin tone of the in-game hands to match yours and also switch which hand wears the watch.
4 / customize your movement
The menu's MOVEMENT Tab allows you to not only change your walking speed but also movement & rotation type, rotation speed, and movement direction.
Wanna sprint? Push down the Left Hand Thumbstick!
5 / Pet the FROG
Did you think we would lie about petting the frog?
Maru loves getting pets!
