It's difficult to imagine Vlambeer adding much to the Pocket Gamer Gold Award-winning Ridiculous Fishing.

After all, how do you add to a game that already lets you unlock chainsaw lures and the legendary 'Infinity Reel'?

Yet Vlambeer plans to add plenty to Ridiculous Fishing as it turns out, with an update due "by the end of the year" that will "double the content" available.

That's all according to DigitalSpy, who also notes - reassuringly - that the update will be absolutely free-of-charge, showing that Vlambeer was true to its word when it promised to avoid IAPs in Ridiculous Fishing.

Casting call

Unfortunately, we don't know when to expect this whale of an update just yet.

Ridiculous Fishing’s first content update is planned for July, but Vlambeer's head of business and development Rami Ismail noted that the "huge" content update is scheduled for later in the year.

Thi new update won't just contain new lures, guns, and power-ups, however. Ismail says the update is designed to "add a completely new narrative arc, and explore that world a bit further."

Let's hope Vlambeer doesn't leave us on the line for long.
