Build Your Fishing Empire

An interactive companion feature to Season 2 of Cold Water Cowboys on Discovery, Atlantic Empire is an immersive multiplayer HTML5 gaming experience that captures the essence of a high-stakes Newfoundland fishing adventure with a combination of both strategy and skill-based gameplay, including in-depth information about show characters and locations. Using map-based gameplay, players customize their harbours and their fishing operations, reaping as much crab, herring, and mackerel as they can in order to build their fishing dynasty.

The Process

From initial concept of the game to final launch, we spent a considerable amount of time to thoroughly think through the complexities of the long term experience. Many iterations of both art direction and animation tests were done to achieve everything from the final movement of the water to the real life detail of each boat.
