Deep Sea Fishing

by magnpeas - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my second Ludum Dare but my first time using Processing for it. Here is my very, very unfinished fishing game! Click and hold to catch some "fish" (circles).

Nice work for your first "real" programming project! Now that you have all the basics working, you'd be amazed at how much more it feels like a game when you add stuff like a title screen, maybe a timer that runs out before you catch all the fish. Adding different types of fish and levels would make this really fun too!

You can improve this game so much when you get better on programming, so, keep going ;)

Pythong, that means you have an old version of have installed. Try updating your java, which you should do anyway!

Simple graphics, but a very good start! I included this game in part 7 of my Ludum Dare Compilation video series if you'd like to check it out :)

There is room for so much more to do. Everybody starts with something little and then expands to bigger things. There is no much to say about the gameplay im afraid.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
