Decent game but the objectives were really confusing. Half the time I simply didn't know if I was at the correct place or if I was just very unlucky, and honestly until now I still don't understand the fishing mechanics. Are the cursed components random? Or do you have to be at a very specific spot (yes, I did go to the right locations and was like within the area and fishing in the bubbles)

Thanks for playing! Very valid, on reflection I wished that I had made navigation/goals far more understandable than some words on paper. Fishing results are almost 100% random (if you fail enough times you are guaranteed the proper component), as long as you are within the right areas.

the moon is so distrubing

Thanks for playing !

I honestly didn't expect this game to actually jumpscare me so hard 😭. Great atmosphere and the build up really got me.

My gameplay starts at 00:19

Thanks for playing!

I had a lot of fun with this! I really loved the style and concept, and it was the right amount of challenging without being frustrating. Very unsettling, I'm a big fan :) 

Thank you so much :)

Hey good game!!  I really enjoyed the experience, the atmosphere is very different, it aside from some bugs that I ended up finding (which is normal) I really liked

keep it up

Gameplay PT-BR

Thanks for playing!

This had an unsettling atmosphere and scared me a few times. I feel the gameplay was a little random and it took a long time to find the parts so I feel like it was a little unbalanced. I liked the antagonist even though he could go through islands like a ghost and I loved that there was a short introduction at the beginning because it added some more depth to the game. Overall it was a fun experience and a nice idea.

Well said. Thanks for playing!

Enjoyed this game but got confused with where i was meant to be going and it took so long for the components to show up. 

Thanks for checking it out! There really was too much chance in the game you're right!

Great game! I enjoyed the spooks and scares. The gameplay was different and intuitive, and I loved the mystery aspect!

Thanks! :)

I didn't know there was going to be quite a bit of lore to this game, and I love it! Such a fantastic game! The mechanics were very smooth and the scares were great! 

Thanks so much for checking it out :)

Of course, it was an awesome game! 

I really like this game. It was fun and had such a spooky atmosphere. I love creepy fishing games.  I did fall out of my boat a lot and no matter what I pushed I just couldn't get back into it. I still enjoyed the game though. Great job ! The game is second in the video at  13:15

this man chasing me to the end of time WHAT THE FREAK and also WHAT DO I DO LMAO 🤣 

GOOD GAME 

Thanks for playing!
Wow looks like you uncovered quite a nasty bug :o

Try fishing up a special component at each location given by the notes, and finding a chest once the item is found :)

Scariest fishing trip of my life. Really spooky game. 

Thanks for playing !

GOOD WORK DEV ON THIS GAME

Thanks :)

I've never been jump scared so hard in my life, so good job! I enjoyed the eerie atmosphere and uncertainty.

Thank you!

can the game be maximised?

i find it hard to enjoy horror games that can only be played windowed

(+1)

Unfortunately it cannot sorry!

The concept of a horror game in what's supposed to be a relaxing time is clever and this was really well executed. I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but I couldn't play full screen. Had to play in a small window. But besides that, I had an excellent time playing. Well done, dev!

 

Thanks for playing! The resolution was definitely something I never got around to fixing :)

I really enjoyed this game, nice creepy atmosphere. Keep up the good work!

Thank you :)

This was pretty good, and I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't for my lack of reading. There's a lot of creepy weirdness to be found.

Thanks for playing!

And this is the complete gameplay with some public opinions at the end of the video: 


Please feel free to add comments or share your thoughts also.

Really, that's a freaking great game! I've really enjoyed it and all the atmosphere involved was really awesome.

The puzzles and the chasing aspect of the game really got into me.

Great job! Keep it going!

Thank you so much for checking it out and thanks for the feedback at the end. Noted!

That was indeed the only ending to the game :)

Great, mate! Thanks for replying! Keep the hard work! Your response means a lot to me.

Cheers, Gameshorts

Great game. The fisherman is creepy.

Thanks for playing !

This legit scares me. The graphics make it even more terrifying. Great job!

Thanks for checking it out :)

This was the second game I played in this video! Let me say, I love the style of this game and when it seems like all things can't go wrong, IT DOES! This was such a fun experience! GREAT JOB! Here's my playthrough!

Thanks so much for playing !

Truly inspiring and thought provoking.

Thanks :)

it was very interesting and i recorded it but gave up on the last component ... after like an hour and a half and still couldnt find it :(

fishy-fish !

what a conspiracy to behold ! :o

Thanks for playing ! For a hint, the last component is located the only place the player hasn't been directed

Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel.

I was aiming for a bad ending in the game, as seen in the video to see how it was like to get caught by the haunted fisherman XD. I really liked the storyline of the game and how things escalated in the game from just finishing mediocre items and fishes to meeting a horrifyin fisherman. (The cutscene where you keep going past the fisherman until BOOM *No spoilers*) 

Going around fishing for items to escape from the bloodwaters is quite interesting and it is definitely a good horror game for the player to spend their time fishing while avoiding the dangerous fisherman.

Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.
