MALIBU, Calif. - Aug. 5, 2009 - Abandon Interactive Entertainment today introduced Freaky Fishing as a new addition to the massively multiplayer online game (MMOG), Freaky Creatures. Players can now bring their Creatures to lakes all over the Freaky Creatures universe to catch fish, parts, powers, lair objects and other unknown treasures. With the recently announced free to play option, players can now experience the Freaky Creatures universe and try out Freaky Fishing for free by signing up at the game's Web site, http://www.FreakyCreatures.com.
The previously unexplored lakes in Freaky Creatures are full of fish, treasure chests and other objects from all over the universe. Players begin in a lobby by clicking on a dock and selecting "Go Fishing." After choosing a bobber, players cast their line by clicking on one of three casting zones. Once players get a bite, they can click on the bobber to start reeling in their catch! If a fish is caught, a Creature Trainer can choose to save it, sell it or eat it for a boost during battle. As a player's Creature makes successful catches and improves in fishing skill, it can access better bobbers to get a wider range of fish and objects, including treasure chests that might include a part, power or lair object to add to the Creature's inventory.
Freaky Creatures starter packs are now available for purchase at comic, hobby and local toy retailers and FYE stores nationwide for $19.99. The game is also available at FAO Schwarz in New York City. For more information, to try out the game for free, or to purchase your very own Freaky Creatures starter pack, please visit http://www.FreakyCreatures.com.
