Fishing: North Atlantic, which has received “Mostly Positive” ratings on Steam, is currently on sale for $27.99, until January 25.
Choose from 27 handcrafted boats and brave precise and punishing weather conditions in the harsh seas of Nova Scotia, which have claimed many a seaworthy vessel, to reel in the big catch that will keep your commercial fishing empire afloat.
Featuring authentic atmospheric effects and a range of fishing techniques to catch elusive deep sea prey, such as harpoons and deep line buoys to capture large fish like tuna and swordfish, or traps to snag crabs and lobsters, Fishing: North Atlantic is all of the thrill of high sea commercial fishing without the freezing water, snow, ice and wind of the elements in real life.
Advanced fish-AI puts your GPS and sonar to the test as you follow the movements of your prey, which can be quite finicky depending on water temperatures, currents, storms and thermoclines.
