UmiharaKawase – Launches on Steam and all other leading PC digital download retailers today, 2 November 2015.
It was the elasticity of Umihara’s rubber fishing line that set the game apart from every other game that came before it. The game allowed players to experience a revolutionary style of gameplay. Much copied since, the game still stands apart to this day.
Play as `Umihara Kawase` – a backpacking Japanese sushi chef armed with a fishing rod, a rubber fishing line and a fishing hook. Avoid fish-like enemies, conveyer belts, spikes, watery pits and much, much more. The deeper in to this dream-like game players venture, the more challenging the solutions and the greater the time pressure becomes. Along the way, look out for shortcuts and secret exits and unlock bonus levels.
- The first game in the franchise, originally being released on console in 1994.
- Created by programmer Kiyoshi Sakai (also programmer on ‘The Mosquito’) and character designer & illustrator, Toshinobu Kondo – creators of the original game.
