WOO FRONTPAGE! THANK YOU!


Our submission to Pixel Day 2021! Walk around, talk to people, and catch some fish! Make sure to talk to John in the tackle shop to get your fishing pole first though!


Controls:

WASD or Arrow keys to move!

Z or J to interact!

X or K to cast fishing pole!

Esc to open the almanac!

When you enter the fishing game use WASD or the Arrow keys to fight the fish and fill the meter all the way to land the fish. Careful though, if you hit the wrong key the fish could get away!

Pixel Day 2020 is what got me to try out pixel art for the first time and so this year I had to go big or go home. Huge props to Sam who learned Unity with no prior game making experience whatsoever. Couldn't have made my fishing adventure come to life without him. Also, thank you Will for putting up with me being extra picky with the soundtrack.

Karlestonchew responds:

Thank you!

looks fun! but i dont know how to select! please this always happens no one puts directions of how to play and now i cant even start the game

Karlestonchew responds:

Hit J or Z to select. We did include directions on how to play, they're bolded in the description. Feel free to PM me if you're still having issues

As other's have said, the story and options could be expanded. One frustrating gameplay issue is that when arrows rapidly appear, it can resister the previous keydown event and mark it (usually as wrong). Maybe increase the min. time, or make the next arrow unable to show up until the keyup event occurs.

The Graphics are all pixels, because its Pixel art. Controls work well enough with mo issue. If you like collecting fish, than this is the game for you. You should be able to sell the fish. That way you could buy upgrades or new equipment. There is so much potential to make this game more interesting, and much better.

After all that, nothing? You did some things right. The soundtrack is nice. The fish in the cave should have been a boss, or something more than nothing. It needed upgrades, rewards for side quests. What am I, everybody's fish servant? The map is smooth. You did alright on the fish fight. Hints on fish locations would help. This feels very very incomplete.
