Not the news I expected to hit my inbox this week. Fishing Planet an online fishing game aimed at realism is heading to Linux.

I found an interesting video on it, and it looks okay:

About the game
Fishing Planet is a unique and highly realistic online first-person multiplayer fishing simulator developed by avid fishing enthusiasts for anglers to bring you the full thrill of actual angling! Choose your lures, make your trophy catches, discover new possibilities and sharpen your real angling skills anywhere, anytime with your friends!

Not sure how many of you it will interest, could be amusing, could be as boring as fishing in real life!

I couldn't even imagine that there was such a game

I enjoy fishing in real life: Such a game is fish-friendly and saves you a lot of travel costs, not to mention that you wont drown and can have real toilet breaks.

But I still doubt that game is perfect for me, at least till they release the "Filleting and pan frying fish" DLC.

I enjoy a good fishing game, and it's fantastic to see this one coming to Linux. (Now if only we could get some decent basketball and football games!)

Football manager is on Linux... Don't know if you meant ones where you actually play as the players though.

This seems like a great way to chill out, although the multiplayer stuff (if forced) is disappointing. I'd be happy just collecting trophy fish and whatever by myself. Had a ton of harmless fun playing Fishing Resort with my nephew on his Wii.

Looks pretty! The devs were probably enjoying fishing in WoW too, huh?

I'm down to give this a try. Sometimes, I just want to play a game that's chill, a man can only swing swords and shoot aliens for so long before he wants to take a break and do something more relaxed.

Last time I had a fishing game that I enjoyed on the PC was Trophy Bass 2 by Sierra.

I love that these niche games exist, even though I don't personally play any of them. They are exotic little flowers in the gaming flora.

Crack open a cold one and 'big game' hunt!
