What great news to being Greenlit! Thanks to all supporters for seeing the potential of the game. Thanks for seeing past the uglier placeholder art of the early launch. We are open to requests that discuss the business value of the new feature.

4.2.1 is in beta being tested. New 3d Catch/Keep/Release animation cycle. Previous just a dialog with image of fish. New Fish Market. Players requested selling fish to get cash for tackle store. Get to market before it closes. Kinda of like putting money in Free parking in Monopoly. Livewell status on HUD. Tracks data for all types of fish. Not just the Trophy fish.

Release v3.0.3 with milestone of tournament play with computer players. Demo allows full access now so you can see if any issues on your rig. Spent effort on features and playablilty rather than the art work.

I like the concept. If you do get 3D graphics and more of a Civilization 5 looking playing board then you should be in business. Work on the graphics and interfaces for now. Great concept for a fishing sim/strategy game. Best of luck to you and your product. Ill vote it in as long as you keep workin'!

Release v2.1.8 will have new 3d assets and selection of five Lakes.
It is not availble for public yet.

It's like someone asked a kid to make a board game for a school project. Then they proceeded to not really try.

Well, I've seen it at VGN, and it shows good potential, though he does have to work on graphics, they seem to be placeholders.
