April Progress Report

Hi everyone! I wanted to give you a quick update about the upcoming features.

The next update will be very big. New maps, equipment, fish species and more. There will be so many new things that testing everything will take some time. There are already so many species in the game that we had to completely rewrite the support for the fish species in the game. This way we can continue adding new species also in the future.

Hang on tight since new content is coming! here is the first screenshot to show something about the upcoming update.

Battle Royale Is Now Live!



Battle Royale is a new exciting game mode that can be played both in single and multiplayer. In this new exciting mode the player must stay inside the eye of the constantly moving storm and try to catch as many fish as possible within the time limit. All of the competition types and maps are also playable in the battle royale mode. The mode can be activated from the map selection just below the fish fight checkbox.

The second new features is the updated minimap functionality. The minimap now follows the movement and turns with the player, which makes it much easier to navigate in the game.

Also included in this update are bug fixes, new sound effects, ability to see minimap in the fishing scene on VR.

Game Description


In this game players can roam freely in the beautiful open world maps and explore river, pond and lake locations in diverse environments. Dare to go deeper into the wild where no fisherman has gone before and find the biggest catches. All maps are playable both in single player and multiplayer modes.

Finding the best fishing spots by learning the depth maps and bottom topology of each location is fun, but requires patience and dedication. Nothing wins the expectation of finding the best location or catching the biggest fish from each lake.

The real excitement starts when it is time to throw fishing lines into the water and start fishing! The right equipment for right conditions are as essential as is mastering the location. The realistic fish behavior system, fish AI and fish swarms for almost 30 fish species makes this game a lifelike fishing experience. Fishing gear can be chosen from a wide selection of different jigs, rods, augers and baits. A perfect combination of equipment for different species depends on the season, but especially weather and daytime conditions. Controlling a rod and a jig in the water in a right way and at the right depth in Ice Lakes is a skill of its own. Rod and jig physics guarantees that fish react authentically to player's actions.

Fishing independently without time limits or competitors makes Ice Lakes a relaxing game to play and tune your fishing skills in the comfort of your home. On the other hand, lengthy tournaments and very customizable single competitions will test the player's skills and knowledge, but will reward them with new equipment and limitless fame.

Future development

After the release the development of Ice Lakes will continue and is improved based on the wishes of the community. Moreover, the game will get free content updates including more maps, game modes, fish species, equipment and more.
