#FishingJam - Update 6 - Starting to come together

All the basics are there now pretty please with where I am at now for the final push over the next few days! Managed to get the fish tracking the lure and have added the tension meter for the fishing line.

Hopefully I should be able to added ability to hook the fish tomorrow and then gotta pad out all the game goals :)

EDIT - Vine Video of the fish tracking (Not really smooth motion from the fish but looks ok :))

Hope your games are all coming along as well as you hope :)

I have now ran out of time so it is what it is but took a tad longer than I hoped (Blame the British summer for that! Those of you in this country no that you must go and play outside when presented with any kind of sun haha!)

A lot of it looks really crude but the basics are pretty much there.

Please check it out! ... layer.html

You have 3 Mins to catch as many fish as you can!
The bigger the fish the more points it is worth
Every fish caught will add 30 seconds to your time!
Watch the tension meter when catching the fish. Too high or Too low and the fish will get away!

Arrow Keys to navigate the lake
When stopped left and righ shift the rod
Press Space bar to cast the line

Hold Space to reel in
Use the arrow keys to change the camera angle

Outstanding things if i was to really finish it off
Some kind of levels rather than the Arcade one shot type game
Improve the look of the line
Use some better fish
Fishing Sounds

Flying fish!! Can't work out why this happens!
Plenty of overlaps on the objects
You can row the boat into the terrain :( oop
Probably lots more

Found some horrible bugs with the Fish scripts which made it really hard to actually find any too catch ha

I've tweaked the A.I. and how the fish are generated so hopefully it is more playable now.

I have not deployed over the original so what was "Achieved" :roll: within the jam timescale is still there. :)

Whahaha, you've really captured the 'flavor' that makes so many fishing games a ton of fun! I played this for a solid half hour! I've gotta say, the thing I love the most though is the way the fish move. They're fantastic!
