Ningyo

I became aware of Katsushika Hokusai around 1984 in art school. There was a poster of The Great Wave off Kanagawa in our jewelry department that I fancied. Later I became obsessed with his ink drawings of Japanese mythical beasts and strange kaiju creatures. I thought it would be really cool to make a seascape fishing game based on the Hokusai paintings. I used several of Hokusai’s aquatic kaiju creatures to populate the game. I based all the gameplay off of having to stay with your friend, Ningyo the mermaid. You ride her to different islands catching fish and feeding fish to her kaiju friends for points. This is how Ningyo, the game, was born. Available now for iOS, Android, and Windows.
