CATCH & RELEASE
Available on Steam, Oculus & PlayStation
A light-hearted, relaxing VR fishing game that walks the line between engaging VR simulation and meditative free-form experience.
With playful, captivating gameplay and a striking art style, Catch & Release gives players the opportunity to interact with a beautiful world, catch fish, find treasure and row their own little boat through a serene and detailed lake environment. You’ll dive in for ten minutes and step off the boat without realizing two hours have passed.
Featuring interesting items to use and manipulate, exciting fishing gameplay and the option to just sit and enjoy beautiful lakes and landscapes combine for an experience unlike anything else.
Catch & Release has been built from the ground up for VR and tracked controllers.
Just you. On a lake.
The game scope was defined to explore the possibilities in VR. In particular, we wanted to see how a fundamentally different approach to the player matters. The idea for Catch & Release is based on the idea that we do not drive the player to any achievements but invite him for a short break. Virtual Reality provides us with a great opportunity to provide our players with experiences that would be limited in conventional ways.
Somewhere in the deep forests of North America, between the small village of Misty Falls, small creeks and waterfalls and far off the long windy roads lies the beautiful lake Whispering Waters.
Use the unique rowing mechanics to find the best fishing spots and explore the beautiful environment.
Throw the line out and attract a fish – Your interactive fishing rod offers you full control, with different bait and lures and haptic feedback.
Catch the biggest fish, fight to reel them in, but don’t let them snap the line and escape! You’ll need strategy and finesse to tire them out if you want to make the greatest catch!
Original soundtrack with over 30 tracks playing on the in-game boat radio.
Find trash or treasure. The lake hides more than just fish!
If you want to take a break from chasing the catch of the century, just sit and relax. Listen to the radio, skip stones, have a drink. Outside of missions, there is no timer to stress you out. Remember … it’s just you, on a lake.
