Hey Anglers,

Here is some important news for our Windows and Linux users!

In a few weeks, Fishing Planet will stop supporting 32-bit builds on Windows. Rest assured, your game data and progress will remain intact, allowing you to seamlessly transition to a 64-bit system without any loss. Simply ensure to update the game to the latest version to continue playing without interruption.

For our Linux players – you'll need to install Proton on your Linux system to continue playing Fishing Planet after this update.  The same as Windows users, you don’t have to worry about your progress and in-game data, - it all will be preserved and accessible after installing Proton.

Here is a step-by-step guide on what exactly you will need to do to continue to play Fishing Planet on Linux:

Steep 1:  Install or Open  Steam

Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T Keys and add the multiverse repository by running the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository multiverse

sudo apt update

If you do not have installed Steam, you can Install it with the command:

sudo apt install steam

Next, launch Steam and log into your account.

Step 2: Enable Steam Play

Please follow these steps to enable Steam Play for all titles and choose the latest version of Proton on Steam:

  1.  Log into Steam using your login credentials. 

  2. Click on “Steam” in the top-left corner, and select “Settings”.

  3. Go to the “Compatibility” settings, then locate the “Steam Play” section. Toggle on the “Enable Steam Play for all other titles,” choose the latest Proton version from the dropdown menu, click “OK,” and restart Steam.

 Step 3:  Install Fishing Planet

With Steam Play enabled, you can install and play Fishing Planet directly from your Steam library. Simply click “Install” on the Fishing Planet icon and Steam will use Proton to run the game on Linux.

That’s it! You won’t need to do anything else, but should you have any questions, feel free to contact our support. Tight lines and happy fishing!
