The fishing mini-game

Fishing is a mechanic within Verdant Skies. By using this mechanic, the player can obtain fish, which are useful for making food. In order to begin fishing, the player interacts with any body of water with shadows of swimming fish visible.

This will open the fishing mini-game, in which shadows of fish move across the screen in a body of water and the player targets and throws Fishing Spears at them. A series of red arrows follows the mouse, showing the spear's trajectory. Hold the left mouse button until the red target appears over a fish, and release to throw the spear. If it hits a fish, it will drop the fish item and deposit in the relevant storage facility (i.e., the player's refrigerator). All nearby fish will scatter and the mini-game will close.

Fishing is a vital part of progression in the game, and the distinct species of fish caught is cataloged in the Progress Journal.

Fish can be sold for money. Fish from different environments are worth different amounts, with fish from the mountains and caves worth the most. Some biomes have special fish that only appear occasionally. They are much larger than all the other fish and sell for $120.
