Reel In

Imagine the possibility of going on a trip to a beautiful and serene lake in the mountains, with crystal clear water and calm nature giving you real peace of mind. This possibility is just a few presses of a button away, with our VR Fishing experience - Reel In. Welcome to a wonderful place where fishing, nature and serenity are the only things on your mind.

This project was developed as part of the course Advanced Graphics and Interaction at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

Goals Goals and Motivations

Our Goals and Motivations

We wanted to create a beautiful and fun experience for the user, and at the same time embed an educational aspect to it. We hope that the impact of this VR game is that through inspiring nature, it can encourage to spend more time outdoors and actually go fishing IRL. The team behind Reel In all had a desire of creating something within the VR technology scene and wanted to work with the engine Unity and the HTC Vive headset.
