New version of FISHAO: FISHAO Forever

Some very exciting news to bring to you all!

For almost 2 years now, GamoVation has been working on a follow up to the FISHAO game called FISHAO Forever. It will still be free to play, but will no longer be a browser game. Instead you will be able to get it on the Steam platform for PC and Mac. A beta version will be available sometime in November-December. All currently registered Fishao accounts will be sent an invitation for Beta testing in May (there will be a limit of about 300 Beta testers, so not everyone can be approved). Oh, and of course, all approved Beta testers will be given a classic Beta Statue for free! Just like old times.

New graphics engine
Naturally, being in this new format, you can expect great improvements in graphics as well as in basically all other areas, since the restrictions that comes with a browser game will be gone. The style of the graphics will remind you of FISHAO, but since it will now be based on the modern Unity 3D graphics engine, the visual style will be vastly improved.

Some of the new features:

Fish migration
All fish species will now have their own AI (artificial intelligence). For example, they will migrate between certain areas of the lakes during different time of the day.

Fighting fish
The game will be viewed from a 3rd person perspective. When you get a bite it will switch to first person view where you will have several new parameters to take into account. Fish might spool your line, depending on how strong your equipment is, it will jump and try to shake free from your hook etc.

Weather/Temperature
Fish behaviour and choice of preferred bait and lure color will change depending on weather and temperature.

Different types of fishing
Spin fishing, Fly fishing, Angling, Dynamite fishing.

Gameplay tweaks
FISHAO rods won’t exist anymore. Instead there will be a permanent rod for fish up to 150 CM.

If you fall into the water for any reason (like fighting a huge fish), there will be a minigame where you have to swim ashore again. I you fail you will drown and respawn in your personal home.

Bobbers will be lost if your line/equipment breaks (Most bobbers will be cheaper and there will be more different ones to buy).

Bait (for angling) won’t be lost until you catch/loose a fish or until line/equipment breaks. Lures and flies won’t be lost until your line/equipment breaks.

There is still some work left before the game will enter Beta stage, but it’s not too far away, so keep your eyes on your mail inbox for the Beta invitation in May!

    if gamovation would spend JUST HALF the effort it took to compose this prank on actually improving the game itself, the number of players would stop dropping……..
