Bell’s Beach is a silly exploration platformer where fishing is taken to its ILLOGICAL extreme. Run and jump around a vibrant coastal town, chatting with eccentric locals, and search for fishing spots that only a keen eye and a slightly mad mind will be able to discover.

In this town, fishing only begins at the ocean: slippery, scaly creatures may be hiding just about anywhere! By the time you've finished exploring main street, you'll be seeing fish in cups of coffee, street signs, and the back of your eyelids.  It can be played with a Controller or with Mouse and Keyboard, so take your pick!

I caught all my fish!

I love the camera work with the lighthouse when you go from the first fishing spot to the town.

It's interesting how the fish can be in the most unbelievable places.

The last fish in particular was so unexpected that I was very surprised when I threw my rod out there to try and catch it!

Thanks for a good game!

Thank you mimi!!! I'm always delighted to hear from you. Thank you for being such a dedicated player of weird little indie games!

I did really enjoy this game, the level is a wonderful imagining of an Australian seaside town, the characters are charming and I had fun exploring and trying to find every last fish. But I couldn't find the last one! And I must have looked for an hour before I gave up. I also struggled with the aiming system, but otherwise really enjoyed my time with this little game!

Oh my god that last fish. Great game!
