“Sometimes you just need a relaxing pixel art fishing game, and this is a great one”

River Legends: A Fly Fishing Adventure is a single-player, pixel art fishing simulation with RPG and adventure elements. Learn to fly fish while traversing the virtual Pine Canyon.

“...simple yet pleasing angling mechanics...”
Rock Paper Shotgun


■ Explore the far reaches of a wild canyon in glorious pixel art

■ Pursue multiple species of challenging fish with realistic AI, each with their own fly and weather preferences

■ Master dynamic weather conditions and realistic water currents

■ Choose the best tackle based on water conditions​ - wet, dry, and streamer flies

■ Cast your fly fishing line with real-time controls

■ Master the art of landing tough fighting trophy fish, both trout and other freshwater species

■ Keep track of the fish you catch in your trophy album

■ Adventure into an array of fishing environments including forgotten canyons, dark forests, alpine lakes, sylvan ponds, and more

With River Legends, you can play at your own pace and choose your own goals. Try to catch all of the fish species available or just target trophy fish. Stick with your favorite fishing spots or keep exploring new regions as you unlock them. Earn new items to cast farther and to expand your fishing territory. Relax and cast your line in the best locations or hike to see the wonders of Pine Canyon at your leisure.

Few recommendations if you’re listening

Playing the game a bit, a couple recommendations from a fly-fisherman. First, shouldn’t be able to see the fish at all times. Part of the excitement, often, is not knowing exactly what’s in the water, perhaps you need your polarized glasses to get a better look. Maybe add to the allure (no pun intended) by reducing visibility. Another thing, gotta be able to style your character. Is it some guy out there or is it me with some waders, my new Simms sun hoodie, and some orange shades? Lastly, a lot of the fun is the cast. Maybe it should be that the line follows exactly what you draw, so if you get the timing right, you get the cast you want, otherwise you get hooked. A start to a brilliant game. Just a few thoughts.

Great start

This game is so fun 🤩
However a little too easy, I got every fish including the legend in 2 days.
Casting is awesome and it is fun to see the fly float downstream.
One suggestion maybe have actually bug hatches and flys to make the game a little more fun/hard
This game is awesome

This is surprisingly fun!

I preordered expecting a simple game to waste my time. However, the game play is really well thought, not too complex and not too easy. I have unlocked 7 out of 8 locations from pine canyon and will continue to play. Overall, a really fun game with nice pixel arts and smooth fishing mechanisms.

Leilio, thank you - that means a lot!
