Caverns and Coral Beta is Live!

Go to the betas tab to try the latest content! By default, you'll get six NEW save slots for the beta. Disable the beta to return to your existing game.

Alternatively, you can enter the password "importsavefiles" in the betas tab to unlock another beta branch and continue your existing game, but do so at your own risk. Once you have imported your save, you will NOT be able to revert to the pre-beta branch.

So, what's included?

New Areas to Explore
Go further than ever before with two new boats! Or go deeper. Below the ocean floor are the caverns, a vast network of caves supporting a variety of habitats. Utilize the new "sinker" rod upgrade and the "deep sonar" tool to scour the depths!

Dozens of New Fish
Discover the Skrimp, Bombat, or Chompy among dozens of new fish. There are two new huge fish lurking in the sea, including the collosal Cave Shark. There are even rumors of giant Nightfish hiding in the caverns.

Better Quests
No more boring quests! The quest system has been updated to prioritize rarer fish once you've gotten a handle on things. Quests to catch multiple fish of the same type are now rarer. Feedback on this during the beta would be greatly appreciated.

A Few Changes to Hats
- "Grind" hat effect now actually works.
- "Kardinal" fail-cast bug fixed.
- "Tinkerer", "Ballcap", "Pernicus", and "Lens Cap" effect rephrased.
- "Boater" and "Fez" move speed reduction reduced. (Faster.)
- "Quester's Beret" reward bonus increased to 100% from 25%.
- "Seer" no longer disables quest rewards.
- "Nightfall" now produced shorter storms more frequently.

Other Stuff
- Max level raised to 100.
- Max cash increased to $1 billion.
- "Huge Hook" buffed: hooked fish can be eaten whole.
- Single "Repel" upgrades are now MUCH more effective.
- "Gauge" upgrade buffed.
- "Improved crank" upgrade nerfed.
- Most rod upgrades are visualized.
- Maw won't fly away any more. Probably.
- Many fish behaviors tweaked slightly.
- Fixed a bug causing fish to become bones sometimes.
- Fixed a bug causing some save files to become corrupted.
- May have conquered the elusive invisible fish bug.
- UI improvements.

Upcoming: Caverns and Coral



Cat has a new toy: the sinker.

Below the dark depths live curious creatures who call the caverns home. They've spent centuries slumbering in darkness, and some would assume stay, but Cat has other plans.

Discover 30+ new fish, two new boats, and more in this upcoming patch.

More information coming soon.

“A game in which a cat goes fishing. But a hugely charming one, and surprisingly involved.”
