In Intergalactic Fishing you play as an angler tasked with solving the mystery of what is causing the fish to die in your local lake. You must travel to many different lakes all over the universe, exploring, catching fish, gathering data, completing quests, upgrading your gear, and talking with other anglers and scientists in order to figure out what is going on.
Explore countless lakes all over the universe
Explore the dozens of populated lakes in the ULT Network or venture into the unknown and explore uncharted lakes. With procedurally generated lakes and fish species, there is always something unique and interesting to discover.
Fish behavior simulation
Each fish in the lake is individually simulated. Fish behave differently based on their species, size, habits, lure preferences, time of day, their surroundings, etc. Learn about how a species behaves to catch more fish!
Use your BOAT to travel the universe
The Buoyant Object for Above-Water Travel (or BOAT) is a high-tech watercraft equipped with a Universal Lake Teleporter capable of near-instant teleportation to lakes all over the universe. Your BOAT is also equipped with underwater jets for precise maneuverability in the water, a lure fabricator that can create custom-designed lures on demand, and several module slots that allow you to customize your BOAT to your liking.
Design your own lures
Target certain fish species by designing a lure that they will be more likely to bite. Try to create a lure with the perfect stats and behavior with your available lure parts and mods.
Participate in Tournaments
Join fishing tournaments and compete for prizes against the best anglers in the universe. The live leaderboard shows you how you are doing during the tournament.
Take on Fish Contracts
Accept Fish Contracts to catch a certain species of fish from a certain lake then go out to the lake, get your fish, and turn it in for a reward.
Meet other anglers and complete quests
In your travels, you may come across other anglers who can give you some information about the lake or the fish in the lake, or perhaps you will meet someone who needs help and has a quest for you.
Upgrade your gear
Sell valuable fish, complete quests, win tournaments, gather and sell data about lakes and fish species, and complete fish contracts in order to upgrade your gear. Get a better BOAT, a stronger rod, or modules for your BOAT that add new functionality.
Flexible main story quest
The main quest acts as a guide to introduce the player to the different activities in the game, but you can strike off on your own and do whatever you feel like at any time and return to the main quest later.
Detailed career stat tracking
Keep a tally of just about everything you do from number of fish caught to total credits earned to number of lakes visited.
Daily Tournaments and Unknown Lake Leaderboard
See how you stack up against other players by competing in the Daily Tournament with Steam Leaderboard support. You can also choose to have your catches submitted to a leaderboard of the largest fish caught in Unknown Lakes.
