Sophie Houlden held a Fishing Game Jame last week, resulting in many new fishing games for us to love, though sometimes the term "fishing" is used loosely. Sophie's game FisherClimer is still in progress, and hasn't actually integrated any fishing actions yet, but it does have an awesome polygons-meet-Gameboy art style and fun 3D Platforming.
Fishing mechanics are so rife with potential, just as much if not more so than the standard melee or gun combat you see in most action games. It's great to see so many motivated and intrepid developers take the call to put fishing in the spotlight. Who knows, the world's next Ridiculous Fishing may be just around the corner.
