Memories of a Fisherman looks much less scary than the name suggests

Indie horror is so hot right now, and with good reason; smaller companies are doing what triple-A has been unable to for years, namely, scare the living crap out of us. The latest little gem to be produced by this growing scene is Memories of a Fisherman, which as it turns out is less about exaggerated tales of derring do with our piscine foes and more about wandering a subtly-terrifying open-world landscape.

The story has the player returning from a jolly fishing adventure to find their home island disturbingly silent and empty. Only one inhabitant is to be found, and he’s dead, clutching a letter he penned moments before doom descended (why do they always do this? I intend to spend my final moments eating cakes and/or kissing). Your task will be to find your lost family although let’s be honest fellas: I don’t expect this to actually occur.

Whatever is on the island, it’s not friendly; it’s described as smart, evil, and willing to play with your mind; you’ll need to pay attention to small details to solve its puzzles. Anyway, check it out on Greenlight and Indiegogo, and enjoy the footage below.

Am I the only one that feel very underwhelmed after watching this video? I think they mentioned you can go anyway at least 3 times.

I must say the name doesn’t really inspire that much fear. “Where’d I leave the hooks? I hope I have enough bait. Must remember my wet weather gear.” If it’s much less scarier than that then it’s possibly as scary as walking to the corner shop for milk.
