ULTIMATE FISHING is an MMO-game fishing simulator with realistic graphics on Unity.
In 2016 GamoVation offered to create a fishing simulator from scratch on a partnership basis. Launch of the game initially was planned in browsers on WebGL and smartphones. First WebGL version created for 9 months, later the game was released only for mobile platforms.
Target audience of the game: 40+ men.
The essence of the game: to fish in an accessible location, accumulate star points to discover new game worlds.
ULTIMATE FISHING has 12 game locations from the real world each of which is different: • type of water - salt / fresh; • fishing equipment; • type of fish; • background.
Players cannot use the same fishing equipment in different locations. Players need a strong rod, line and hook, and special bait to catch rare fish.
In the game was planned to add new fishing areas and new fish weekly to keep players interested.
Development from idea to release took 700 days.
During this time we are: • Added achievements. • Implemented the wheel of fortune. • Added a welcome bonus to the game. • Prepared the game for the holiday sales. • Implemented the "add to friends" function. • We translated the game into 16 languages. • Removed 80% of the wheel of fortune functionality. • Implemented control using the keyboard and mouse. • Made an admin panel for tracking marketing indicators. • Made the game cross-platform for WebGL, Android and iOS. • Added bonuses for posting to Facebook and inviting friends. • Introduced a clan system that includes clan achievements and chat. • Made sound effects for the game: sounds of water, fish biting and splashing. • Made an admin panel to change game parameters without restarting the server. • Optimized loading speed and performance: 14 seconds of cold start on iPhone 5, 30 FPS.
And we added 12 locations to the game with: • realistic fish; • shader water; • achievements; • fishing equipment; • 5 types of daily competitions; • competition tables sorted by country.
We also implemented an in-game chat with: • ban-list; • private messages; • division into languages and locations.
And of course we added: • guest mode; • login via Facebook; • registration by email.
• Lure. For catching large fish of every kind. • Amplifier. Increases the power of fishing gear. • Accelerator. Activated for quick catching of fish.
The goal in each location is to collect as many stars as possible to open up a new game world. Stars are awarded for every fish caught. The larger the fish give the more stars.
Imitation of glittering water and fish accompanied by sound effects in realistic animation creates the feeling of fishing in nature.
