Socialspiel casts off with Tight Lines Fishing

Vienna, Austria - October 31, 2011 --? Socialspiel today announced the launch of Tight Lines Fishing, a social game that allows players to embark on a fun and competitive fishing adventure, build and decorate their fishing cottage and share their catch with friends around the world. The debut of Tight Lines Fishing comes on the heels of the release of Socialspiel’s award winning Facebook puzzle adventure, Push. Tight Lines Fishing is available on Facebook today at https://www.facebook.com/tightlinesfishing

Tight Lines Fishing is a social fishing adventure taking place on Facebook, where players compete amongst each other online to catch the biggest fish. But it doesn't stop there, they can also train their skills, customize and equip gear to catch bigger fish and explore the unique and colorful world around them. While exploring, the player will meet new friends and funny characters who have tricky quests to fulfill and lots of fisherman’s stories to tell.

At the start of the game, the player inherits a piece of land from his/her uncle, a prestigious fisherman and fearless adventurer. Marv, a cranky old guy and the oldest, dearest friend of the family agrees to become the player's mentor and teaches him/her not only all there is to know about fishing, but also prepares the player for exciting future adventures.

“With Tight Lines Fishing we’ve created new ways to connect with friends around the world and bring out the angler in all of us. In doing so, we continue our history of creating unique social games with high quality production values and appealing experiences for players and their friends to enjoy. Until today more than 1.5 Million fish have been caught”, says Socialspiel Cofounder&CEO Helmut Hutterer.
