Gone Fishin’: Bitizens Fishing Game

Get ready to catch some fish and win prizes!

Greetings, Guildmates!

In our last update, we mentioned that we had a fishing game in the works. The feature is releasing soon, and we’re excited to share more details about it, and how the leaderboard will work.

VR Journals v1.0

While our Bitizens are still settling into their new home of Bitropolis, some of them miss engaging in their favorite pastimes. To help them adapt to life in Bitropolis more easily, the city’s mayor—Sway—will be giving everyone a new device that brings a small digital taste of the old worlda VR Journals device. In order to redeem this new device, you’ll need to enter your Bitizen’s home and trade in your antiquated television box.

The Fishing Game

In this first edition of the game, you’ll be able to catch fish that vary in weight and score. Compete against other Bitizens in a weekly contest for badges, limited edition items, and PLAT!

Once you’ve unpacked your new device, boot it up and select the fishing game from the menu. Your Bitizen will be “virtually” fishing digital goodies and competing against other Bitizens of Bitropolis. To cast your reel, tap anywhere in the lake and 1 bait will be used. After a few seconds, you’ll see your results and how you placed against others.

Prizes

Records of your fish caught will be recorded in the Leaderboard, and you can also view the current week’s prizes in the Reward table. Each week, the fishing game will offer different rewards. The leaderboard is split into two categories, weight (KG) and score. Placing in the top 10 on the leaderboard will net you PLAT. Top 3 places will receive a badge in their Bitizen’s home and 1st place will receive a piece from a Limited Edition set. The first week’s prize will be one piece of the Shark Investor’s Set.
