Fishy Waters

Author Comments

Catch fish, sell 'em and upgrade your boat to explore new seas and discover increasingly exotic creatures of the sea.

You set out on your journey when the heroine's father is swallowed whole by a monstrous kraken. Determined to rescue her dad, she sets out with nothing but a scrappy old boat and a sturdy old rod.

Control the game with the arrow keys (or WASD) to move, and to reel back escaping fish. You can throw out your line with the spacebar. The rest of the game is controlled with the mouse.

1.1 A small update, fixing the following issues:
- There is now a hint to sail around to find fish, if they’re not biting in the open waters.
- The Kraken has been training and has gotten a lot tougher!
- There is now a clear ‘End’ in the final cutscene.


A sequel wouldn´t be bad. It a very fun game.

This reminds me of all the fishing minigames I've enjoyed throughout the years, particularly the one in Okami, owing to the heavy line-work and stylized characters. Sure, the game is extremely easy, but that doesn't at all need to be a point against it. It It creates an interesting little world, a positively delightful atmosphere, has a buoyant, happy soundtrack, and perhaps most importantly, for me at least, managed to create a sense of total connection and sympathy with its proletarian protagonists through nothing more than a few well-drawn comic panels.

If Fishy Waters is mediocre but pleasing as a casual game, it excels as the heartwarming story of a Fisher-Girl trying to live up to what her father taught her and get him back. Very much enjoyed.
