With the ocean sounding somewhat significant in PE, how would you feel about a fishing mechanic being implemented? Nothing super in-depth like different rods, lures, or lines, but rather just a simple iteration like that in Torchlight or something.

 

Fishing could be a source of income for the player or a means of obtaining crafting materials. I could even imagine that some of the more advanced factions/regions (or even some crazy old hermit) would be interested in hiring the player to catch fish for research purposes. Remember, there's apparently huge sea creatures that can take down armies. I'm sure someone in the game world is interested in learning about them.

I voted yes, it could be something that adds a level of additional adventure. As you mentioned the sea contains its own mysteries which need to be understood

Maybe if Obsidian is so flush with cash from the kickstarter that they don't know what else to add to the game they could do it, but this is just so much fluff in my opinion -- not a bad idea per se, but really, really far down the priority list for features.

Please no mini games.

 

Did you read the Ops suggestions? He isn't necessarily talking about mini-games but the broader topic of fishing and quests that would be related to it

They specifically mentioned Torchlight. I haven't played a game with fishing that hasn't been based around a mini game.

No vote here from me as I don't know what crafting / gatering will be implemented .

Fishing alone without the ability to get something more usefull out of it then some items to sell is not worth the time to impliment it in my opinion.

As a fan of the Dragon Breath series I gotta say that fishing is a yay for me. Besides I need something to do while drunk.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

If hunger and thirst mechanics were implemented in the game, fishing, like hunting, could be a way to acquire food. That I would like. No minigames, just a simple system. You use the skill and if you pass a test/are lucky, you catch a fish. Since, I don't thing you will have to eat and drink in Project Eternity, fishing would be pointless.

I think Zelda Wind Waker did a really great job with the fishing. Albeit, that game pretty much took place entirely in a body of water, but the fishing was totally optional and never really punished you for ignoring it. I really liked how you could find items as well, since I'm sure there's bound to be some great loot in PE buried in the depths.

 

I also totally agree with nikolokolus in the respect that this should in no way be a priority or mandatory feature. Just something fun if time and money permits.

Oh my Capital! I didn't know that Project Eternity is a collction of Facebook games with one ultimate choice: which one to play. I choose Project Eternity: Farming with orcs.

No, dear gods no. Kill it with fire. Talk with people, solve puzzles and mysteries, kill things and take their stuff, yes. But fishing? No. Just no.

 

I'm not normally that vehement, and it that's what floats your boat good for you, but no. If I wanted that sort of thing as a game mechanic I'd play WoW.

I can come up with a mini game comprised of 17 subskills under the "fishing" section, 45 different fishes, 13 different tools ! Just ask !

 

Im interested, can you post the structure of your fishing mini-game?

No fishing, please. I'll just zap them with electrical bolts when I want one. In a worst case scenario, I'll go to the market and buy some.

As a rule I'm against minigames, but I found that mechanic mildly amusing in Arx Fatalis. I don't think it's worth much development time. If there is already food in the game and they could code the fishing function in a few hours then maybe, but it's probably not worth the effort for a low budget game like this. I'd much rather see them spend the time on allowing more than one rolled character.


JoshSawyer: Listening to feedback from the fans has helped us realize that people can be pretty polarized on what they want, even among a group of people ostensibly united by a love of the same games. For us, that means prioritizing options is important. If people don’t like a certain aspect of how skill checks are presented or how combat works, we should give them the ability to turn that off, resources permitting.

Lets get some of the most pointless features from other games that keep you tied up from progressing throughout the game. Adventuring and completing a quest? No, I'm too busy at a lake fishing and hoping I'm going to pull out an item that I can craft. :getlost:

I don't think I'd waste my time with a fishing-lottery even if something like that was in the game. I wouldn't mind fishing without any minigames and could guarantee success with just cunning and lightning reflexes. Expanding on that, a sidequest where the player commandeers a fishing boat or gets to manage an entire fishing company would be pretty awesome. Moral choices to club baby seals or not. Going crazy in search of mythical prey. "There she blows! Man the harpoons!"
