Gone Fishing

Godville, Nov 12 2015

It looks like a new kind of hobby is spreading through Godville. Nobody knows how it all started, but more and more heroes, from beginners to the most seasoned adventurers, are being spotted sitting next to rivers, ponds and other water bodies, with an artifact attached to a line on a stick… They call it “fishing”.

Surprisingly, the loot is not just fish: it could be a golden brick or something else easily activatable. Taverns are already full of stories about a bigger catch fished out on a “bolder” bait. In the best ZPG tradition, divine influence is not required or it can even be harmful – nobody wants to scare away all the fish with noise or thunderclaps.

In the mean time, a few overly enthusiastic shipwrights got their hands on some ancient scriptures and realized why they needed arks in the first place. All this time they were meant to preserve life in this world – which in their heroic minds translates into finding a thousand pairs of twos of every kind and packing them into their arks, just in case.

However, there is a problem – heroes have gone back and forth through Godville countless times and all they saw were some genderless and occasionally male creatures. Where do they find fenimals? Well, checking the waters is worth a shot. While high-waters are not yet available due to the ongoing construction in Godville’s port, a recent fishing craze should come in very handy.

This new heroic undertaking won’t get unnoticed: Godville’s accountants are already crunching some numbers and the builders were noticed erecting something new in the pantheons area.

Some miscellaneous news:

  • a recent major update of Godville Android app has added support of Material Design, improved notifications and very handy Mini-Remote. Make sure to check it out if you haven’t yet.
  • if iOS is your choice (and the app was crashing recently), get the latest update from the AppStore as it might help you.
  • if you’re an active Ideaboxer keep in mind that your ideas can be accepted at any time of the month (unlike from just the beginning of the month like it used to be).

Is the collecting of two of every kind going to be like savings and just keep going or is there a goal of how many the hero needs to collect? Also will there be any achievement attached?

Dante Leonidas The goal is 1000 of each. Also savings does have a goal. It’s 30,000,000 coins.

Anyone know if there are any God voices that will send your hero into fishing mode? I’m guessing no…

The Gripping Hand I don’t think there are any such godvoices. I told my hero to fish about twenty times with no reaction, so I assume it’s random.

10:59 Declared an unplanned fishing day. Now I need to find somebody who’d bite on the saved game.

This was certainly a nice surprise to see! Can’t wait to read up on what strange junk my hero will fish from the waters of Godville!

I don’t want to go on a Noah quest, though.

Did anyone notice how the hero heals during fishing? Love it devs!

My hero was fishing and caught a goldfish…. but I could not see where it shows other than the diary. Can you view what you caught?

Looks like many questions are answered, and more questions raised. This is part of the genius of Godville. Just when folks think they have everything figured out, and the game is getting boring, the Devs pull another rabbit out of their hats. Good job all, and thank you!
