mikey's ice fishing

by Thirsty - Jam Entry

‚ÄčKiller Ice Fishing game made for Ludum Dare 37 with a lot of design and art done by my 6 year old son Mikey. The game was made to be fun for a kid to give them practice using the mouse.

Controls are mouse only

Hey good job Mikey on the drawings, this is a great idea to get kids into game dev. I'm hoping my little girl can help me out one day in the future (she needs to learn walking before development though!)

I love that you let your son participate with you. My kids ask me all the time to make a game with them and I always say yeah soon- I should actually do it. I bet he loved seeing his art in the game. That is awesome!

The game itself is fine- i didnt know what to do at first. I was throwing worms at fish -did I want them to eat me / hit me? Did I want to catch them? Or just kill em all with free food? :P

Great job doing a jam and kudos for using your sons art. He did great!

I love it! Throw in some kooky sound effects and I'd be hooked (pun intended)!

It has some lure... in it, great art considering.
Good for 6 year old to learn to use the mouse, but could use more variation and replay value for older kids.

Cute game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
