Fishing seems like a great time for introspection, the game captured that mood well, I think. The visual style was nice, too!

Thanks very much for your feedback, everyone!

@ncase: Completely hear you on the controls. It *was* left-click to cast and right-click to reel, but right-click in the web player makes the contextual menu pop up (even if I disable it in the player settings when I build in Unity). I played with using the scroll wheel as alternative but ran out of time before I could get it to feel right, so went with the keyboard as a scrappy solution. 

Really liked the calm, meditative mood of this piece. I think the core idea is brilliant -- "fishing" for random fragments of memories that the player has to piece together into a story. The controls, however, were very confusing at first -- using mouse to cast the line, but keyboard to reel and reset? That said, nice start for an almost Zen-like game!

Nice mood and concept. This is an idea which could be taken further to good effect - I loved the way the 'story' was doled out in little snippets while the fishing itself was a nicely relaxing activity. It worked and I'd love to see it expanded.

Cool game. Kind of paints a picture of someone reminiscing about his life.

Interesting game. Nice job. I included it in part 1 of my Nar8 Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/-Vf43eyLuSE
