awesome game! super fun and nice graphics. i enjoy the little details like the predators eating other fish, and the shark biting through the net. i would suggest giving the net a fair bit more drag as it swings around very easily, and perhaps have it splay out more (until fish are caught anyway). it would also be cool to see the fish have a  stronger schooling behaviour, and trying to regroup after being separated. 

but those are just small suggestions, overall i had a lot of fun figuring out how to play it! the upgrades are fun as well and add a good sense of progression to the game. i am curious though, is there anything of significance at the bottom? i saw it got very red which was interesting, but i reached around 4300m and didn't see anything :0 

good game, but please move reset

It's a very fascinating little game. It's interesting, entertaining, and honestly I see a lot of room to expand it into a full sized game if one were to want to build upon it as a foundation.

This game is absolutely amazing!! It's so fun to roam around and see all the different sea life there is! I really would have loved if there was some crazy secret at the bottom of the sea though! That would be awesome. But nonetheless this is an amazing game!

Some things I'd want to see is maybe an upgrade for a bigger net. I found I couldn't grab fish as easily as I had hoped for. But that's about it!


Thanks! I had planned for there to be bigger and scarier monsters the deeper you go, but ran out of time in the jam. I'd like to finish making it at some point in the future. A bigger net upgrade is also a great idea!

ur game timber is so cool

although i do have some troble killing them all

Cool engine! Grid, wawes

Awesome game


Great game! Beware that if you play it in the browser and are using WASD controls, if you happen to press Ctrl (for harpoon) and then W, it'll close the browser tab!
