A lot of games today are pretty action-oriented and that can get a little overwhelming for some. So, what if there was a game that was just built for the sake of being relaxing? That’s the exactly the case with the new VR title Catch and Release. As the name suggests, this game is all about fishing. In fact, the game’s motto is simply: “Just you. On a lake.” It doesn’t get much more simple than that.
In Catch and Release, your goal is to simply take your rowboat out on a lake and do some fishing. You can choose to throw whatever you catch back into the water or keep them. There are also some secrets hidden beneath the waves, players are encouraged to explore every nook and cranny of the lake.

There’s currently no release date, but it will be coming to PSVR in addition to Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Here’s a rundown of the features:

Somewhere in the deep forests of North America, between the small village of Misty Falls, small creeks and waterfalls and the long windy roads.
Use the unique rowing mechanics to find the best fishing spots and explore the beautiful environment.
Throw the line out and attract a fish – your interactive fishing rod offers you full control, with different bait and lures and haptic feedback.
Catch the biggest fish, fight to reel them in, but do not let them snap the line and escape! If you want to make the greatest catch!
Original soundtrack with over 30 tracks playing on the
in-game boat radio.

If you want to take a break from the world, just sit and relax. Listen to the radio, skip stones, have a drink. Outside of missions, there is no time to stress you out. Remember …
It’s just you, on a lake.
