Hey, you! Yes, you! Do you want to be a landlubber your whole life? Or maybe you dream of making a fortune, sailing dangerous seas and learning the secrets of king crab catchers? Are you not afraid of risk, storms and crab claws? If you are brave enough, come with me to Dutch Harbor!
For a few days every year, experienced crab catchers and greenhorns brave the elements side by side, putting their health and life on the line. The goal is to earn a fortune and become known as the best crab catcher. Now you can become one of them!
In Deadliest Catch: The Game you will compete with dangerous sea rallies to catch more crabs than you ever thought possible. The task is not simple – it is a battle against time, fishing quotas, crab migrations, and most importantly: the sea. Such is your underwater fate.
Your ship is no different from those that sail from Dutch Harbor every fall to seek a fortune in the marine abyss. You will conn your vessel in all conditions: breeze or gale, no storm can scare you, however terrifying it may look. The troubled sea, the soaked ship deck, the vessel floating on the waves - and you to overcome it all!
At your disposal we leave not only this fishing vessel, but also all the onboard equipment - the crane, the winch, the launcher, and the coiling system. We will teach you to use them, step by step. Remember, no-one was born with the rudder - or a crab - in their hand. However, you will manage the vessel by yourself - as captain and fisherman at the same time. All devices are handled by you in the first-person mode to have the best view of everything happening on your boat. You will also get original crab pots - thanks to them you will be able to pick out all the crabs from the vastness of Bering Sea.
Remember that you must follow Alaskan law. Not all crabs can be caught and sold! A realistic 3D model will help you judge whether you have caught a handsome and expensive male, a protected female, or a baby. Analyze the water and seabed to better predict where crabs may be found.
Nature will not be your only opponent. Match your skills against the computer and other players! Invite your friends to compete for the title of the best crab catcher. Load your pots on board, sit at the controls of your ship and see which one of you is the fastest and most effective in catching your crab fortune from the bottom of the sea!
Ahoy Alaskan Captains!
After long preparations, upgrades, reprogramming and bug-fixing, we can finally answer the returning question about the Kickstarter Campaign launch :) We are starting on September 16th 2019 - you can find the campaign preview here: Bit.ly. Don’t forget to hit the notification button, so you won’t miss all the great early-bird (or in our case - early crab) deals! Don’t hesitate to share the good news with your friends and other DC fans!
As we promised, the main goal of the campaign will be implementing the crew management mechanics in its basic form. When you’ll hire crewmen, you’ll be able to assign them to a chosen task on deck - for example setting the pots or sorting the caught crabs. As they’ll keep performing the given tasks, they’ll get better at their job, doing it faster and more efficient. Additionally, when crewmen will be free for the moment, they’ll perform secondary actions, like preparing the bait or repairing the equipment.
We have some additional features planned from the start, so they make place in the stretch-goal list. Among them you can find improvement of the crew management mechanics (f.e. the crewmen will get tired as they work on deck) or equipment upgrades. We’ve also included one of the big features that you were oftenly asking about - the multiplayer mode! :)
As for the campaign rewards, we’ve prepared multiple options for you. From getting copy of the game at a better price, through access to beta-tests and digital posters, to exclusive rewards like placing hidden objects in the game or naming a captain after you - we’ve got you covered. In any case, look out for the limited early-bird (or in our case, the Early-Crab and the Pioneer) rewards, cause you’ll be able to get a sweet deal out of them.
If you haven’t done it yet, it’s high time to join our Discord community - Discord.gg. On the server you can find all the fresh info, talk to the devs and share experiences with our ever growing, crab-fishing family. :)
Talking about Discord- we have to say HUGE THANKS to the devoted pre-alpha testers that helped us with finding and fixing bugs as well as all the community members, that showed their support, suggestions and ideas - we won’t be able to create Deadliest Catch:The Game without you!
We hope you are as excited as we are and can’t wait to share our work with you all! :)
