A Girl Adrift (Video Game) - TV Tropes
The adventure begins...
The survival of a girl who drifts around in a world that was submerged in water!
— Game Tagline
An Idle Game from Team Tapas where players take on the role of a girl trying to survive a flooded earth with only a raft and a fishing rod. From a tiny outcropping of rock in the Pacific, the unnamed drifter sets sail to explore the oceans, befriend other survivors, and search for answers about what caused the end of the world.
Gameplay revolves around catching fish and collecting resources to upgrade fishing equipment. Players travel between their home base, fishing areas where rare creatures can be caught, and Harbors run by the few survivors of the rising waters. Harbors allow players to sell any treasure they find, purchase skins to upgrade their abilities, and receive quests that expand the world map and push the story along.

Ad Reward: After defeating a Legendary fish, you can watch an ad to double your loot.
