Team 17 are to release a game featuring ‘sinister fishing’, two words that should never be placed beside each other. The trailer for Dredge does deliver on that promise, starting off with sunlit trips to the ocean to catch fish of all sizes before, well, things occur. Check it out.

In DREDGE, step into the boots of a down-on-their-luck fisherman and explore a collection of remote islands while scouring the surrounding depths for a variety of fish and valuable, deep-sea curios. Once your trawler is full, sell your spoils while completing quests and unravelling more about each area’s peculiar denizens. Reinforce your vessel, skills, and knowledge to dredge deeper and reach more secluded lands, but keep a close eye on the time. You might not like what finds you in the dark…
