FISH is a beautiful, bizarre and bamboozling experience that takes you on a metaphysical theological adventure that explores life, the universe and everything.
Drawing inspiration from the works of Russian painter, writer and philosopher, Nicholas Roerich, FISH is an incredibly strange, but fascinating and oddly mesmerising game that explores many facets of life, death and everything in between. In the game you follow the story of a man who has won an award, but to collect it he’ll have to embark on a journey that takes him to strange places.
Each location you visit contains different benevolent beings that depart their knowledge to you. They talk about a wide range of topics, with the conversations often revolving around the fundamental nature of reality, life, death, afterlife and many other subjects that can take a little time to wrap your head around. Some of their theories conflict though and your character has a sharp enough mind to question them and not just take everything on face value.
Due to the dense subject matter (and possibly due to the translation) it can be a little hard to follow what’s going on in FISH, but even if you just absorb some of it, it’s still a fascinating experience. The visuals and character models are near-photorealistic at times, the soundtrack is excellent and you’ll be thinking about some of the conversations you had on your journey for a long time after completion. Highly recommended.
