Celebrating the odd phenomenon that is "shark week," Tripwire Interactive offers
a first Maneater Video
with a discussion of their upcoming RPG where you play as a
shark, or as they joke, their SharkPG. The game is expected to start stalking
its prey later this year, and they've now opened up preorders on the
, where it will be an exclusive for the first year. Those who choose to
preorder between now and Monday, August 5th will receive a $5.00 discount. Feel
free to play the Jaws theme
(or Hall & Oates' Maneater
) as you read on for details on the game:
Experience the ultimate power fantasy as the apex predator of the seas -
a giant Shark! Terrorize the coastal waterways. Tear swimmers and divers limb
from limb, give the humans a reason to fear you!
Maneater is a Single-Player Action RPG, set in the Gulf Coast’s unforgiving
waters. Fight to survive in the open ocean, swamps and rivers with danger
lurking at every depth. Your only tools are your wits, your jaws, and an uncanny
ability to evolve as you feed.
Eat. Explore. Evolve!
