Fishing is an amazing pastime. You get to relax by a babbling brook or lackadaisical lake, take in nature, and if you’re lucky, you get to have fresh fish for dinner. But fishing has its downsides. You need a ton of patience, a nearby body of water, and a license. If you have none of those, perhaps a fishing game is more your speed.
“Bait!” is exactly what it is advertised as: VR fishing. You can visit one of several angling locations, hang out with friends, and hook virtual fish as much as you please. However, not everyone finds a calm zen in fishing, but the developers of “Bait!” took that into consideration. If you aren’t an angler, you can still enjoy the game by exploring a beautiful island resort full of social activities such as boat racing (the RC kind), skipping stones, and playing solitaire. Relaxation is the name of the game in “Bait!”
Since one feature of “Bait!” lets you don your Meta avatar in the game, the title is understandably meant for Meta’s line of VR headsets, including the Oculus Quest, Quest 2, and Meta Quest Pro. While “Bait!” is a free game, it includes in-app purchases, so you should probably know that before giving the game a spin.
