TIGHT LINES FISHING

2011 - 2013 Flashgame
 

THE FIRST STEPS

how my adventure in video games started

the funny thing about tight lines fishing is that I was responsible fort the entire graphical implementation in the game. So I did from the Logo design, animations, main characters, fishes, UI, icons and buildings everything on my own. It was a real blast to work on this game after my career in adverstising and really refreshing to have so much liberty. Sure we ran into some deeper troubles and I think in the end we had to redesign some dialogues more than four times until they were half decent usable but it was an incredible experience which shaped my future entirely.
