The Night Fisherman
You're a night fisherman, and you spot a boat approaching. You bait your rod and steel yourself, ready for interrogation. Once he arrives, the man on the opposite deck is calm, civilised, and has a shotgun slung across his back.
How's this gonna go down?A SHORT GAME BY DE FAULT & CHARD
The English Protection Group keep a watchful eye on the Smuggler's Run, a renowned crossing for vessels bound from Calais containing illegal immigrants.
When faced with an armed man, his voracious appetite for conversation, and nobody else for miles, can you safely get rid of him?
This is a single, film-like scene. You direct the fisherman's actions, as well as directing the camera shots between the cinematic angles available.
The first of twelve small, experimental narrative games to be released monthly.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.
- Roughly 5-10 minutes in length.
