Hooked on FishVerse: Testing the Waters of Digital Fishing

I’ve never been the fishing type. However, in video games like Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon, fishing has always been a delightful side activity. So, when I heard about FishVerse, I jumped at the chance to check it out. FishVerse is an open-world fishing game that offers players a rich blend of activities as fishers or fish farmers, providing a multifaceted gaming experience.


Upon starting, players select their preferred game modes and equip themselves with NFT-based gear such as fishing rods and plots for fish farming. The gameplay includes various fishing styles like sea-fishing, float-fishing, spinning, and bottom-fishing, each demanding specific equipment and strategies. The game environment is vast and varied, featuring different fishing locales such as rivers, lakes, and deep seas, all populated with a diverse array of fish species. Adding layers of complexity, FishVerse incorporates weather conditions and day/night cycles that affect fish behavior and challenge the players’ skills and adaptability. This dynamic setting enhances the realism of the fishing experience.



Jumping into FishVerse is a breeze. Whether you're on Android, PC, or Mac, you’re just a quick download away from casting your line. It’s a bummer for iOS users since it’s not available there yet, but overall, getting set up and signed in is as simple as entering your email. The main menu is clean and straightforward, making it pretty easy to get your bearings and dive right in.

Gameplay and graphics

If you’re looking for a game that holds your hand, this might not be it. There's a distinct lack of tutorials, which left me scratching my head at first about basics like restocking bait after my initial stash of worms and cheese ran out. Turns out after exploring, there’s actually a store in-game for that. So once you get the hang of it, the game is quite intuitive. There’s a decent variety of fishing gear and locations as well that becomes available as you level up, keeping things interesting.

The visuals? Pretty solid. Fish glide through the water, grass details, and the landscapes are quite the treat. However, the game could really step up its immersion game with some finer details. I mean, splashing water when you dive in or better transitions from water to land could really elevate the experience. Right now, your character is still in the swimming position even when you get too close to shore.

Fun Factor

Despite its flaws, FishVerse is genuinely fun. Fishing strikes a nice balance between challenging and accessible, and honestly, it’s quite relaxing. The real highlight for me is the boating. There’s something super satisfying about cruising to new fishing spots. It’s smooth sailing all the way, and it adds a nice layer of exploration to the whole experience.

Overall, FishVerse isn’t perfect, but it’s got a lot going for it. It’s easy to get into, offers a variety of activities, and the fishing itself is a great blend of simplicity and depth. It does need a bit more polish, especially for newbies who might feel a bit lost at the start. But if you’re into fishing or just want a game where you can chill and enjoy some nature vibes, FishVerse is definitely worth a shot.
