Super Action Fishing Adventure!

Postby Knighty » Tue May 28, 2013 2:22 am

Hello. Here's the game I'm working on. :)
It's a 2d side-scrolling action game where you battle and catch fish.

After casting you'll take control of the "lure", which is just a girl with a giant hook as a weapon, to attack fish and lower their stamina. When it's depleted you can then hook them and reel them in towards your boat. Some fish will attack back or regenerate stamina, so catching them won't be so easy. Catching fish gets you money, and it also gets added to your gallery.
The goal of the game is to catch all of the "Legendary Fish", but you'll need to catch normal fish and use the money to buy upgrades.

There will be a shop where you can buy upgrades and other things.
Most of the upgrades are optional, but you'll need to buy longer fishing lines to access the deeper parts of some areas.

Fishing Rod Upgrade- Allows you to reel in faster.
Fishing Line Upgrade- Increases the length of your line, allowing you to explore more distant and deeper areas.
Hook Upgrade- Increases damage done when attacking.
Lure Upgrade- Increases lure's maximum health.
Flippers- Increases swimming speed.
Lantern- Allows you to see in dark areas.
Fishing Permits- Allows access to new areas.

These are the planned areas at the moment. I may add more if I have time.

May Bay- A beach with nothing really special about it (for now).
Loch Ness- A lake with a labyrinth of underwater tunnels beneath it.
Rainbow Castle- A sunken castle, filled with multi-coloured coral. It's look pretty, but something terrifying lives inside...

Here a screenshot of it so far. All graphics are placeholders.
This shows how the fishing line will work.

I guess I should post my progress so far.

Click here to play the current version.

Currently I have done:
- Boat movement and casting.
- Fishing line mechanic (Took awhile to get this right.)
- Lure movement and attacking.
- You can damage fish and reel them in to catch them.
- Visible health bar when attacking fish.

I also made this. This is one of the portraits that will show during dialog between the two characters.

This is pretty cool. It's fun being a fish-napper.

Click here to play the game

The game is playable now and mostly done. The goal is to catch Nessie at the bottom of Loch Ness.
This is probably all I'm going to get done before the "deadline".

~How to Play~
When in the boat, press X to cast or C to open the menu. When controlling the lure, X attacks and C reels in.
Attack fish to lower their health, then press X to hook them. Combine reeling and swimming to pull the fish to the boat before the fish recovers, then use the money to buy stuff from the shop.
The 250m fishing line and the permit are the only required items, but the other upgrades will make things easier.

I think this fishing game is awesome. I haven't played it yet but now I'm making up my mind to play it soon after finishing my work. God, this picture of underwater catching fish literally making me uncontrollable. :P
