World’s leading tackle developer and manufacturer to help create the greatest fishing simulation ever 

Dovetail Games has today announced that it will be working in partnership with carp fishing specialists Korda on the development of its upcoming fishing simulation Dovetail Games Fishing.  Korda is a company at the cutting edge of fishing innovation and technology, having conducted pioneering research that has led to great innovations in fishing tackle. In addition, the company’s stance on carp care and the protection of waterways is helping to preserve the sport for future generations.

The agreement will encompass a number of elements.  Dovetail Games will be granted licensing rights to represent a variety of Korda products within the game, as well as featuring the Korda name and logo where relevant. Korda will also provide consulting services during the production of the game, giving input on the content and playability, as well as providing access to specific locations, voiceover talent and other partners to enhance the authenticity of the in-game experience.  Finally, Korda will provide promotional support during the launch phase of the game.

“We are delighted to be working with Dovetail Games to help them create the most detailed, authentic and realistic fishing simulator ever made,” said Danny Fairbrass, the founder of Korda Developments. “There’s a great team at Dovetail Games, using amazing technology to bring to life the experience of carp fishing properly in a video game for the first time. We’re really excited to be able to feature our kit in Dovetail Games Fishing and look forward to seeing both carp fishing fans and gamers using our equipment in the virtual fishing world.”

“As well as providing an opportunity for fishing fans to practice fishing when it’s not possible outdoors, one of our aims is to encourage more people to get into real fishing through playing our game,” said Paul Jackson, CEO of Dovetail Games.  “So working with a partner like Korda, who mirror our aims with their own carp academy programme which is helping to bring more young people into fishing and create the fishing stars of the future, feels like a perfect match.”

In Dovetail Games Fishing, players will tackle every step in the fishing experience, starting with the selection of equipment and rigs based on the angling environment. Players will then survey their preferred location then take to the waters edge to prepare their gear. Using an intuitive new casting and reeling mechanism termed ‘Total Cast Control’, players can then test their skills by finding, baiting, catching and landing the fish.

Initially specialising in fishing for carp, Dovetail Games Fishing will quickly expand to include a multitude of popular fishing types, including bass and fly-fishing, across a variety of locations around the world.

Dovetail Games Fishing is currently slated for a late 2014 release, and is initially being developed for PC with more formats to follow.
