STOCKHOLM, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, virtual reality (VR) games studio Resolution Games launched its highly anticipated VR fishing game, Bait!, on the Oculus VR Store for Samsung Gear VR. The first VR fishing game available, Bait! provides a highly visual and relaxing gameplay environment for players of all kinds. Whether new to fishing, VR and even games or a seasoned anglers and game enthusiasts, Bait! is an unmatched experience for anyone.
"Like all of our games, the aim of Bait! is to provide perfect content for those new to VR while also providing the sort of compelling and quality gameplay that keeps the most avid gamer, VR enthusiasts and in this case, anglers, hooked for hours," said Tommy Palm, CEO and co-founder of Resolution Games. "The Resolution Games team are not only seasoned games industry veterans, but also passionate fishing enthusiasts. And, fishing is something everyone can connect with, which is why Bait! made so much sense to be our first major game project."
More than a simple fishing simulator, Bait! provides a diverse, story-driven experience with visually rich environments and plenty of fish to collect throughout. Gameplay spans four different lakes, each with a distinct style and varying fish species that lure you in. Expert anglers can bag them all and aim for the dream of reeling in a prize-winning catch of every type.
In what Resolution Games considers of vital importance to VR gaming, no controllers are needed to enjoy Bait! This project was designed with the Samsung Gear VR touchpad in mind, making gameplay more accessible, and far easier to lose yourself in.
"It's amazing. Bait! had an almost instantaneous relaxation effect. Once you get started and cast your first line, everything else in life disappears and you're truly in the moment – I bet my pulse even went down," said Maarten Noyons, founder of IMGA (International Mobile Gaming Awards). "I got the game within minutes, and could have spent hours chasing down all the different species and experiencing the different lakes."
Players are transported to Bait! Island to help their boss catch a rare fish as they try to save the faltering aquarium where they work. You'll catch a lot of different fish and make friends with the locals – but can you keep your loyalties to both your new friends and your boss?
Bait! is free and available now for Samsung Gear VR users in the Oculus VR Store. In the coming months, Resolution Games will be announcing localized versions of Bait! for audiences across Europe, Latin America and Asia including China, Korea and Japan.
