Inspiration and ideas for the development of Codville, our fishing village management game.

Posted by on

Codville is a managing game of a fishing village. It was inspired by the cod fishing during the 1900's in Portugal where the men would sail on boats to "New Land", an area in the Labrador sea between Greenland and Canada. Once there, they would leave on small boats called "Dóris". This type of fishing was done at -15Cº making it extremely dangerous and life threatening.

Thinking about the journey that this fisherman would make, we wanted the audience to feel responsible for the consequences of their actions. In our game the player manages a fishing village making all decisions from chose which buildings to build to if its safe to send fisherman out to the sea.
