Make a game about fishing with me! It doesn't have to be big, special, artsy, meaningful, or a 'life's work'. Just make a fishing game! Treat it like you would a 'real project'. Nothing gives a confidence boost like having a finished item in your hands, no matter the state it's in. Just like fishing, sometimes you catch things, sometimes you don't. The important thing is you had fun and finished the thing in the meantime!
"Hey, can I go fishing?"
"You? HA HA HA SURE."
"I'm being serious, I watched some BluTube videos so I'm good."
"AH HA HA SURE. You can go fishing."
"Can I borrow your fishing stuff? It's old and you never use it."
"Hm? Oh, sure, go ahead, knock yourself out!"
The goal: Make a fishing game. Bonus points if the game has conversations, lots of narrative, and as nonviolent and positive as it can be. The game should also be slightly on the weird side. Weird like Mother 3, Phantasmaburbia, Burly Men At Sea. The game can ALSO be about electronic "fishing".
If you make a game that has fishing in it, it is a valid entry as well. With the qualifier being the player must be given the option to fish.
You must also have a 'good enough' finished version that you can present to people. Expanding on it is fine. However the finished version should be playable on it's own.
Please only submit "games and "not games" in a usable or playable state. Do not submit other forms of media or non- "games" and "not games". DO NOT submit experiences that are currently undergoing a type of crowdfunding.
