Synopsis

Meena lives with her father in a lighthouse perched atop an endless sea. Ever since her mother died in a shipwreck when she was little, she has been forbidden to go into the water. One day, when her father goes missing during one of his dives, she ventures deep into the sea to rescue him. However, the monsters that lurk beneath the surface cannot all be seen. Meena must face her past and fraught relationship with her father if she wants to survive.

Director’s Statement

Tide’s Fall is the second chapter of the story Arden’s Wake, a VR story about a young woman who embarks on a dangerous journey in a post- apocalyptic world. Her story is of self-discovery and growth, inspired by the universal realisation in our lives when we recognise that our parents are human too.
