Default F!shing

Hello, it's been quite a while! 3 years apparently, though it feels like longer. Those years have been a bit of a mess, but more to the point, I'm making games now!

My first commercial game is F!shing. It's a dumb arcade game about zooming around in your little fishing boat and flinging fish through the air, while trying to avoid catching litter. It sometimes looks like this:



This week I added Race the Shark mode, where you try to catch fish before a hungry shark eats them. It sometimes looks like this:



You can watch a little gif/video of it here.

You can play it on Android, Windows, Mac and Linux. (It requires Java for those last 3) It's still very much in development, but I think I've fixed all the biggest problems, so it's just a case of adding in more game modes and things. Let me know if you have any ideas!

The website for it is http://samatkins.co.uk/fishing/, where you can enjoy a terrible trailer I did where I try to sound like a cowboy for some reason. You can buy it from there, BUT I'm also giving away free copies!

To win a free copy of F!shing, draw a picture of a fish and post it below! I'll send you the download link in a PM.

Thanks! Sure, you can paint one, draw one on a napkin, get a tattoo (don't get a tattoo), anything.

I've just set-up a half-price sale (completely copying the Steam sale) until the end of the month, so it's under $2 now.

Thanks! I'm quite happy with how it looks. I'm pretty good at the moment; I had a rough time a couple of years ago but I'm doing a lot better now. Feeling positive about game development. F!shing is mostly a test to see what releasing a game is like (but I still think it's a fun game), but I've got some bigger games in mind that I'm excited about.

Looks good, I think I saw it first on Jamul's Twitter page. You should definitely make a move for Steam greenlight.

I'd draw you a fish but I'm being excessively lazy right now, so here's an old drawing of mine. Warning: dead fish.

Cool drawing! I've PMed you the download link.

I might try Greenlight at some point. I'm going to put it on more sites once it's more finished - for now, it's easier to have it just on Itch.io where I can easily update it. I'll be able to give everyone a Desura or Steam code when that's all sorted out.

I thought about trying to draw a fat crow fish but couldn't decide how to reconcile the bird and fish features, so have this abomination instead:

Nice! That's certainly the best nose I've ever seen on a fish.

I hope computer designed fish are allowed, I made this one in GIMP. My brother REACTOR did the wonderful effect of a water wave moving in the background:





I call it, Cybernetic Fish! Flipping through old computer manuals by HP inspired me to do this type of artwork.

Here, have some canned fish!

It's called "Crowded" and it might have the most fish in one picture on this thread.

Nice! Definitely the most fish in one picture (unless you count my screenshots )

I'm sending the download links to both of you now.

Finally got around to playing this, and it was actually really fun. It was both really polished and kept my attention due to its fast paced nature. Would recommend.
Also, I think you should make a mode where the shark gets point for eating fish, and you have to "compete" with it. Either that or some kind of multiplayer would be cool.

Anyways thanks for the download

So, I fully released F!shing on Saturday! It's now on Desura and Google Play, plus there's also a new trailer! All of this is on the F!shing website.

I'll probably add new things at some point, but I need to work on something else for a while.

I'd really like to add 2-4 player local multiplayer, but we'll see. I considered letting you compete with the shark, but it's just way too hard to get a score to beat it!
