Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

by sreal - Compo Entry

Hey all,
Building this was fun.
The programmer art could have turned out a lot better with a bit of planning. That res with make your eyes hurt because I didn't size a file properly
Sorry there is only the Windows build, ran into some last minute build bugs.

Aaand away we go..

The Fishing Cabin

It's a cold day on the ice and you're just enjoying some fishing in your remote ice shack.


How to play

2. RELEASE to reel in when you think you have a fish.

I like the music. :) It was tricky to figure out how to catch that first fish but after that you can catch them every time. I guess the picture on the left should have been a hint.

A great little game. Just a little tip - when working on a full-screen game, always add a key to exit the game, otherwise, as it is right now, you have to Alt-F4 or use the Task Manager.The lack of sounds, outside of the amazing music is also a minus. You could add reeling sounds or water splashes to indicate that a fish is being caught. Otherwise it's a fantastic simple fishing game. It makes you feel like you could do that for hours.

As a fun game this game is very simple .. catch a fish and be happy about it :P I love the graphics and the way the fish comes out filling almost the entire screen (I really laughed the first time!)
You can notice the loop on audio after a couple of seconds but its the kind of soundtrack that puts you in the right mood to catch some fish! Good Job!

This is super charming and I love it. If I could replace my desktop wallpaper with this, I would.

This one's quite nice, or at least it has potential.
I get the feeling you just ran out of time with this one.
The art style is nice, the music relaxing.
That being said, I don't feel like I could spend more than a few minutes on this one, simply due to lack of progression, or points, or anything really. Unless I'm just missing out on the controls of the game, I feel like there should be more there. If I am just missing some obvious controls, then that's an area you need to work on. Overall, nice game I suppose. If it were a more fleshed out game I'd definitely enjoy its meditative atmosphere.

It's simple, but I actually really enjoyed this one. You've got a great atmosphere and used the theme well. Definitely seems like you wanted to do far more with it than you did, but at leas you got it all wrapped up and it'a great presentation! Love the control / gameplay hintson the walls.

I've always liked fishing mini games and this is no different, the fishes turned out pretty cute being so big and fat. Wish there was just a little more like bait options or better rods... Music sets the mood right.

Not sure how to catch a fish. I hold to cast, then release when the line "jiggles", but I never see anything happen. A bunch of the game seems cut off on my monitor (1440x900) (e.g. the instructions on the right are cut off, and maybe other things)
