Dredge


I started playing this on Monday and Tuesday since it snowed and I couldn't leave the house. Anyone else playing this? I'm really enjoying it, but the game doesn't really hold your hand and help tell you what you to do. I died a couple times and I'm not really sure why I died. I guess I may have gone too far off the map. It can get really scary when you're out fishing at night.

Re: Dredge

Did we really not already have a thread for this? Loved the game. And yeah, you can't venture too far out at night or you'll die. I thought I was stuck at a new island, constantly dying when I tried to get back to the starting town. Turns out there was another port near by I could use to pass time and stay safe.

I still need to get around to playing the DLC. They added a new ice(?) area and there's also a crossover with Dave the Diver.

I searched for a thread and couldn't find one so I made one. I somehow got swallowed up by a huge fish in the Cliffs area at night. You have to go to the back area to get a night fish for a quest and I got lost trying to get back. I think I went too far off the map and was swallowed whole by a gigantic fish. I either died or my cargo would get infested trying to get a fish for a girl that likes rotten fish. It took me at least six attempts to get it. Sometimes I would get it, but I would take a hit and lose that fish in my cargo... It was so frustrating. I actually started playing this so I could play the Dave the Diver crossover.

Re: Dredge

Yeah the whole game play loop is staying close to your original area until you unlock enough upgrades for you to explore farther and farther out. Once you got a decent amount of upgrades you can pretty much explore whenever and as far as you want.

Yeah, I looked as well. Now I need to remember where I was discussing this game. I thought it was here.

If you see that a fish has gone bad in your boat, dump it right away (unless you need it rotten specifically) since it will spread to other fish you have.

I got an alert that something had slithered onboard and started infecting the fish. They weren't rotting, they were infected.

In news I wasn't expecting to hear, Dredge is getting a film adaptation. Count me in.
