MANEATER
MANEATER

Tyler Wilde

If it were easy to make games about being a shark, I’d be able to name more than just Jaws Unleashed—a 2006 game Tripwire played as it figured out how to build its shark-based RPG. With the caveat that there isn’t much competition, Maneater may be the best shark action yet.

Fish don’t talk, which makes storytelling difficult. To solve that, Maneater is framed as a reality show akin to Deadliest Catch, with actor Chris Parnell narrating your movements in the water, explaining your shark nature as you swim around devouring hapless beach-goers.
