A downloadable game for Windows

If sardines have taught us anything, it’s that some living things were made to be eaten.



In How Fish is Made you are a sardine in a machine, but is life that simple? This place imposes on you and your fellow fish a prophetic choice. Will you help them, or lead them astray? Will they do the same to you?

Live through the power fantasy of being a sardine. Make oily friends, become upset and choose your destiny. 

The sardines look just like the real thing, so you can really believe they have emotions. Guaranteed! 



⇝ A wet & squalid narrative-driven horror game about choice.

⇝ A multitude of interesting & worldly characters to interact with. Warning! They may take your careless words to heart.

A musical epic spawning philosophy, consumer education and self-love.

This is a funny game, ha

Let's go to the end

thank for this game !

that was pretty neato burrito

This was a complete surprise to me, I went in knowing nothing, and I loved every second.It made me think deep, oily, fishy thoughts and it'll stay with me for a long time, in a strange but good way.

Seriously, it was a surprisingly effective, thought provoking thing considering you play as a weird fish that flops through a nightmarish, cronenberg-esque cum factory.

Highly, highly recommended.

the parasite show felt like how people in the vampire nightclub feel when they see baby colin robinson do his little jig in wwdits. also i really enjoyed what this says about choice and the human/fish experience. i really relate to the barbed wire monologue at the end, and for once it is nice to know other people are going through it. the environments are some of the most captivating ive ever seen, they seem to be almost alive, and they feel like they are the places that my thoughts lingered in as a child. if that makes any sense. the lighting was crazy too!!! i fucking loved this game thank you. ill be thinking about it for a while i think.

undisguised undulation towards questions unanswerable, the specimen twists a narrow path to its goals.  one mentionalbe thought escapes into a void of shattered presupposed hearing, what is your choice?  given a binary optional delusion to your end, does one matter more than the other?  both questions and answers will arrive at the same medium - your sustenance for another earthly creature.  the journey filled a small pocket void in your mind briefly as the experience inflates your imaginations.

Yeeeeeah, never eating fish again so THANKS!!

Really good game though, looking forward to what other stuff you'll make me hate eating in the future 👍

(I actually played this a long time ago but still thought I'd leave a review) 

This was a very interesting game. Very unique but still had some uneasy moments to it. I never thought I'd feel bad for some fish in a game :( haha and that dancing bit got me dancing my heart out! but anyways keep up the good work!

This was quite the interesting game. I like the idea of choice in this game and the narrative it had to offer! I really enjoyed the song and dance in it. Easily my favorite part. 

I had an idea to write and sing the lyrics (as well as add in my own) and wanted to ask permission first before going through with it. Would that be okay with you?

(+1)

Thank you for checking it out! Yeah that's definitely fine by us, no worries. Please also credit the original artist of the song, Tri-Tachyon. The song is called "Little Lily Swing".

Yes
Yes thank to you dev team, i think im not gonna eat fish in a while, but thank you dev team for making this game

wow cool gaim! Up is best direction ez. Good luck on SGA! ;)

(+1)

My only regret is not having any bananas in ours. Good luck to you too! Your work is really impressive!

Hahaha thanks dude xD Maybe see you in Stockholm at the awards thingy! :D

UP or DOWN??? This game was a trip, I'm still very interested in what the other endings are like. It definitely left me questioning my final decision, but really glad I checked this out :)
(+1)

Up is the only way. I Have never doubted this fact. It is clear to anyone with sense that the only way is up.

lovely, disgustingly tactile

bonus points for non-cringe musical number

I was able to beat the game but I still don't know how fish is made.

Clases de biología marina solo aquí.

Very gripping, very interesting! This game grabs you and keeps you HOOKED until it's over!

This might be everything I'd never expect to be inside a game, and I'm equally shocked as I am intruiged and excited. It certainly brought me back to the PS1 era, where (almost) everything could happen..

Very good. I liked this a lot.

(+1)

I have a problem, when I boot up the game the graphics don't come up? the words, text, and sounds are all there except for the actual game. It's like a black screen. Is there smth I can do to fix this? this game seems really cool and I do want to play it

happens with me too devs please tell us how to fix

what...

WHAT AN AWESOME SURREAL GAME! THAK YOU!

EAL EXPERIENCE! AWSOME GAME!
(+1)

Wow. This was an experience. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Really freaking weird. Thank you so much for making this!

Honestly an amazing experience.. and oh boy.. that number in the middle with the parasite had me laughing like crazy. Super weird, got me on edge at times.. and yet, very enjoyable!

Thanks for making this awesome game! Lemme know if you do anything else!

This might be the WEIRDEST Game I have played!
WEIRDEST GAME! How Fish Is Made (All Endings)

Hey! I played your game on my stream and had a blast! I was a bit confused as I thought it was going to be a horror game but it ended being comedic and deep. Loved the concept! The part with the parasite singing and dancing made me feel as if I was watching some kind of fishy propaganda, was fun!


I hope you make more games similar to this. The Fish that gave you stats on who chose which ending was pretty cool.

This is a sort of memey playthrough, lil bit of fun if you want the quick version 

i love this game. personally, i related it to my experience with mental illness and suicide. well done and thank you.

(+2)

I don't know if this is disappointing to hear or not but I will probably remember this game most for the part where you weren't even playing it, aka the ending dialogue.  I think "ugly" emotions are far more beautiful and resounding then the objectively correct response. Really loved it altogether.

I like how as you go through this place you meet all the diffrent fish that have theur own thought on which way they think is right which makes you sorta think about it a bit more yourself and i like the message that you give at the end.

And as you also go throughsome things just feel off with some of the weird rooms but that is good and keeps things intresting especially with the song that was great so all in all i really enjoyed this game and i look foward to seing more.

(+1)

when I start the game sound can be heard but there is no image. how can I fix it?

same

This game is so weird but I love it! Surprisingly, it had an underlying message I was not expecting out of this. Would recommend! Also, the musical part arguably the best part of the game! 



(+1)

One of the more interesting games I've played in a while, good job! The music is fantastic as well.

Comment below clip;

Well, so much for being a vegetarian...

This game is gut wrenching,  but it's good to see life from a different perspective, not the least, an indifference one.

Well done, guys, and kudos to all involved. You've done a wonderful job!


:[]: = hugs to all.

I finally get backed on reviewing games and uploading them on my channel. And this is the first game the I tried and I'm like "ooh this will be good, feels like light and fun game" and that's where I'm wrong. Right when I landed on the floor and I knew I will be having one hell of a ride.

My whole playthrough has been fun. Anxiety driving ride.

I liked the interactions. Especially the musical part it's fun let's just say it's fun..


All in all great game.

Would like to play more of your games in the future


Here's my gameplay of it:

Played this game on my Channel's Series called 3 Scary Games! It't the last game I played in the video starting at 23:41!

This game was easily one of the most bizarre, creepy, funny, thought provoking games I've ever played! Even though I might not have fully understood the complete meaning of this game, the actual Gameplay and Atmosphere of this game is fantastic! I was the most unsettled until the very end! Overall a really neat experience :)
(1 edit)

Dialogues are great, creepy atmosphere, fun to explore, the stuck fish got me depressed and video is funny and satisfied to watch. Great game!

This was quite the journey! It seems bizarre (definitely weirdly morbid), but it can really get you thinking about the existential (if you let it). Loved it 🐟

This game is way to funny and fun, I got creeped out( thanks for that warning about holes in the game) other than that great job I loved it 🤣
