Fishing games are nothing new to the world of gaming, but a fair bunch of them are incredibly arcade-like in implementation. Fishing Planet isn’t looking to be another one of those.
Instead, Fishing Planet is a realistic simulator approach to the art of fishing. Players can select their lures, practice angling, catch “the big one,” or simply enjoy a digital fishing tournament with other players in multiplayer.
Supposedly the fish themselves have complex AI patterns to make them behave realisticly depending on time of day, season, and more. If that’s the kind of thing that excites you then upvote Fishing Planet on Steam Greenlight already.
