Ridiculous Fishing[edit]

Symbol question.svg Article creation and length check out. Logo has an appropriate non-free rationale. Glad to see that the Gameplay section isn't too long. I think the hook is in good shape. Quick question-- much of the narrative painted and other details in the article about the production team's frustration seems to stem from a single, though substantial interview via Polygon-- has the author attempted to see if any of these details can be corroborated by another source (even a primary one?)

The basic story checks out with other sources. The "clone" ordeal was a high-profile situation in the gaming industry, so there's plenty of coverage (though I find that Polygon always does it best). I added another major source and I plan to continue building out the article in the future. czar · · 04:22, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Thanks. I've also gone and checked for evidence of plagiarism or close paraphrasing, but the prose looks good as well. Nice work! I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 05:05, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
