Swedish Resolution Games has released an update for the Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus edition of their popular fishing game Bait! that allows players to add the recently released Gear VR controller to their tackle box.
“We will always be proud to have been one of the earliest developers on the Gear VR platform,” says Resolution Games CEO and co-founder Tommy Palm. “However, those early days had one major limitation: there wasn’t a controller that players could hold and bring into the virtual world. Bait! was designed to excel within these limitations, but as we’re sure our players with Gear VR controllers will agree, fishing feels so much more natural with a rod in your hand.”

The company has also revealed that Bait! has been downloaded by more than 2 million players across the globe. “(This) milestone is an important reminder about the potential of mobile VR,” adds Palm. “Its affordability and convenience has the greatest potential to make virtual reality accessible to the general consumer. And, we’re very excited to see numbers like these so early on in the industry.”
