All HAIL THE MEGA TROUT!!!


It was quite the fun game I only wish it was longer:)

Pulling the old switcharoo at the end there was also a nice touch. The fisherman became the.... fishee?

(Yes I know it isn't a trout but in the heat of the moment my potato brain decided it was lol)

Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for checking out our game!

Jumpscared the HELL out of me. Damn, wish it was longer tho.

Great ending reaction, thanks for playing!

The fish really put me in a pack. That's crazy.

Thank you for the gameplay!

Finally made a video on this game.  Honestly was a great time!  I'd love to see more!

Loved the video, gave us a good laugh, thank you for playing!

CAUGHT ME BY DAMN SURPRISE LMAO THANKS <3 FIRST GAME IS LURE

Great stuff, glad we could surprise you!

really cool game, loved the aesthetic look and yeah it was scary.

...dont mind the title of video.

Thanks for playing, don't mind the title at all.

Why didn't I see it before? Why did I let myself get tricked? Am I really just a fish in this so called "real world"? These are the questions I asked myself as I stared into the mirror after playing lure. The developers claim they made this "small" game for this past Halloween's Scream Jam 2021, but this is very questionable. I think the developers created this game in order to scare people and make them question the unknown and what lurks in the highest mountains that may be looking down at us from above. I've always had this skewed view of fishing but now that term has been altered and fishing will now be seen as some occult-fetish.

Bottom line - I loved this game lol. Keep it up, Blue Moon Games!!

Really awesome to hear how the game connected with you. Thank you for checking it out!

very interesting

Thanks for playing, sorry there were no mermaids!

AMAZING!! I never thought about being fish the other way around. What a PLOT TWIST!! I really thought that the old man was an evil duck demon 馃き

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!馃グ

Short and Good! 

Full Play No Commentary 

Nice! Everything was pretty tame for the most part. Then the twist hit and I had about 2 whole minutes of silence where I was taken back by the element of un-expectation. Great job! Here's my no commentary gameplay vid.

Oh my, it was fun and I really enjoyed it, especially the ending :)

This game was absolutely ridiculous and spoopy... And I absolutely loved it! Best. ending. ever. It's the first game in the video~

Glad you enjoyed our spoopy game, awesome video!

I didn't play it with volume due to me not knowing how my new mic works! I made a video about this game in a 2 horror games video & it's the first game! The ending was pretty funny, I really enjoyed it! I read your comment about not revealing anything about the old man.. Ominous but if there's more, I can't wait!

(+1)

Glad to hear you enjoyed it, great air fishing as well!

lmao I get it now!

This game was excellent, 100% worth playing. Very short, but very purposeful, and the ending totally threw me off. Loved it through and through!

It was awesome to finally see your gameplay! But we can't reveal any more information about the old man at this point.

Ay! I am glad you got to see it! And well darn, hopefully that means a continuation is afoot ;) stoked to see what you all do next, just @ me ok? hahaha

Really good game and the jumpscare's in good taste for sure since it went with the flow of the game. Nice job. Keep it up.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. https://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

Glad to hear you enjoyed the ending, thanks for playing!

Cool style, loved it, jumpscare got me cause I majorly did not expect it lol
interact being space confused me a bit, VHS tape thing hurt my eyes but that's fine cause a ton of games have the VHS filter goin on,
overall, favorite out of the 3 games I played in my video :D

Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed it.
