Gear VR fishing game Bait! catches 150,000 downloads in first five days of release

Stockholm-based VR developer Resolution Games has revealed download data from the first five days of release of its fishing game, Bait!.

The game, released on the Gear VR, has been downloaded almost 150,000 times, with users across 160 different countries around the world.

Plenty of fish in the sea

“It is amazing to see how widespread and global the interest is and with so many fish already caught it’s apparent the game is luring in players for longer play sessions,” said Tommy Palm, CEO and co-founder of Resolution Games.

“We couldn't be happier with the excitement from users around Bait! We’re hearing from players of all kinds about their experiences with the game – whether new to VR and fishing or old hats to both.”

This is reportedly the first time download data has been shared about an Oculus-powered game, offering a small glimpse into the actual install base of the Gear VR.
