The Fish Is Walking!

The factory in the rural village of Fisherman Hills has been shut down due to mysterious reasons. Speculations from the local townsfolk suggest it might have something to do with some kind of disease... however nobody is quite sure.

What's really going on in the factory? Let's find out, and perhaps see if something can be done to stop it.

I am pleased to say that this was the first ever PC game I 'beat'! It will be etched into my heart and mind forever! #TWF

lol! I love that. Proud to have provided you this unique experience ;)

i bought the game but it wont open up on my mac because it's updated :( it used to open up before updating my macbook

that sucks :( 

if you send me your e-mail I will send you a free key for my upcoming game Penguin Heist (price: $15, release date: july 1st) that's releasing on Steam. It will run on your Macbook! If I forget to send you the key you just remind me!

This is my favorite game! :DD


This game right here was one of the best trolling horror games I've ever played here on the channel my dear children! Does anyone have any pet fishes at home? 🐟🤣😱🎮🎥

this was a very intresting and hilarious game to play 

I liked the idea of this game being a parody of the walking dead! Took me a few tries to figure out what I needed to do! Nice job overall! 


Was unexpected...

tienes que meterte a la pagina de inicio y descargar el launcher de esa pagina y despues de eso inicias sesion y podras disfrutar ese juego

I checked out The Walking Fish for my video. It's tough! The fish is a true unstoppable menace and I wasn't able to defeat him, but I had a great time trying to. My playthough of it starts at 15:40! 

loved the game but lost and WHY DO FISH HAVE LEGS


I featured this in my video (starts at 4:25)

I played this game in my video and it was surprisingly really well made! I loved the darkness of the environment you're set in because while that flashlight wasn't entirely effective, it gave just the right amount of light to see forward but to not know what's always in front of you! Other than a quick, almost jagged-like ending, it was a pretty good experience! Keep up the great work!

Enjoyed this so much I purchased the 2nd on steam. Great short game.

Pour les Francophones !

I'm so excited to check out Part 2 The Final Frontier, but wanted to give this one a go first. I found a few bugs for you thatotherfish. Neither happened every time, but after the fish catches me and I continue, sometimes the keypad leading to the fish would be unresponsive, as well as the detonator for the bomb. Again, it didn't happen every time though. Super satisfying ending and an overall fun game to play! Definitely worth a download and play if you're in need of 20 minutes of entertainment! 

The game was a lot shorter than I thought it would be, but it was very fun nevertheless. I am genuinely disappointed in myself for how scared the walking fish actually ended up scaring me, but I cannot wait to play the sequel sometime soon. 

I really enjoyed this game though I must admit I'm a bit bummed that he wouldn't let me talk to him about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I'll get over it though lol. This game is definitely worth playing. I did a playthrough that I will link below if you are interested.

10/10, best fish game EVER period. A game can have good graphics, good game mechanics, good story, but honestly, as long as you have a good fish in the game, it'll be the best game ever. Love it

never thought id be afraid of a fish. this game is simple yet entertaining and fun to play!

So, it's about a fish that can walk?

I'm fish vtuber !

I played your game!

It's so nice X)


Bought it today because I saw the sequel on sale on steam. just played this and it was pretty simple and entertaining! I cant believe i was scared of a fish lmao, well done!


here's my play through, great game plus i broke it and clipped through the walls which was fun



Great game! It always amazes me what talents can do in such little time. For a sequel, imagine the game ending NOT how we think, and the player is followed home lol. Damn good job!👍🏻

Sequel is in the works! This time we’re in space, and it’s 100 years in the future. Prepare for The Walking Fish 2: Final Frontier!

Also loved the gameplay. Good strats for avoiding the disgusting fish


This game was great! I don't know how, but that fish actually genuinely scared me at certain times! I had a lot of fun playing this. Here's my playthrough:

Thanks for buying the game! Loved the video by the way. You've got the spirit of a fish


Great looking game and fun to play. Really nice graphics, audio and movement (although I missed jumping). Story was to the point and convincing - the fish managed to scare me every time.

The only minus was the truly awful Fishsoft customer service.

Can't wait for The Walking Fish 2 and more games from these developers.

Graphics look all good, selection on background track is haunted one (good one), i like how you kept interference with other object minimum and secretive also you never knew when fish will pop-up..... great work. :)

I’m happy you had a good time!


At first, this game seemed a little fishy.. But I enjoyed it!

Really glad you enjoyed it! I’m surprised you did so well on the first go around. You get an alternate ending for blowing up the factory from the outside


Nice changing codes and moving the objectives around. Also the feesh spooked me a couple of times. :D

Thanks for the feedback! :)
