STOCKHOLM, June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Resolution Games today released a new update for the Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus edition of Bait! – virtual reality's most popular fishing game – that allows players to add the recently released Gear VR controller to their tackle box.
"We will always be proud to have been one of the earliest developers on the Gear VR platform," said Tommy Palm, CEO and co-founder of Resolution Games. "However, those early days had one major limitation: there wasn't a controller that players could hold and bring into the virtual world. Bait! was designed to excel within these limitations, but as we're sure our players with Gear VR controllers will agree, fishing feels so much more natural with a rod in your hand."
In addition to the introduction of controller support for Gear VR, the company has also revealed that Bait! has been downloaded by more than 2 million players across the globe.
"The 2 million players milestone is an important reminder about the potential of mobile VR," adds Palm. "Its affordability and convenience has the greatest potential to make virtual reality accessible to the general consumer. And, we're very excited to see numbers like these so early on in the industry."
Bait! provides a diverse, story-driven experience where 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. The game features five different lakes, each with varying fish species to collect throughout. Expert anglers can bag them all and aim for the dream of reeling in a prize-winning catch of every type. Bait! is available for download on Gear VR and Google Daydream. To learn more, visit https://www.facebook.com/baitgame.
