Fishing Planet game studio is a group of talented and dedicated people, who created a successful F2P game from scratch that is now available on 5 platforms — Steam, PlayStation, Xbox and Mobile — both iOS and Android. As for now our community has over 20 million players from all over the world and keeps growing. We constantly improve our game and provide our team with resources and environment needed to foster stable, rewarding and life-long careers while developing the best hardware-can-provide experience and atmosphere of fishing for our players.
