Grand Mer releases new fishing MMO video

If you cannot afford a slick speed boat and the latest in fishing technology to help you pull a massive, scaled beast out of the local salty waters, worry no more. Grand Mer, a new fishing MMORPG, will let you live your dreams from the convenient location of your desktop. While it might sound like a far-fetched idea for an MMORPG, consider the lore. It turns out that the game is set in a semi-post-apocalyptic world of flooded lands, one that requires citizens to pursue fish as if there were only a few left in the sea.

Of course, we're not sure how the hip-hop-inspired clothing options and teeny-bikinis figure into the backstory, but for some reason we just... cannot... stop... watching. (Perhaps it is the scary possibility of netting a dolphin?) Whatever you think of the concept, check out the trailer after the cut and enjoy some images from the upcoming title.

Don't be surprised if you hit replay as many times as we did.

Here is a better look at the cast of characters...

... And some more killer boat shots:

Don't forget your customizable seashell fishing rod!
