Take it back! Everybody look at me, me, I swim in the door you start screaming! Come on everybody, what you here for? Move your body around like boat without oars. Everybody here your neck making a snapping sound, all you crazy people come on jump around, I wanna see you all in pieces, you either wanna be with me or be me. Come on now, Maneater, make you work hard, make you spend hard, make you swim for your life.
Ah, Nelly Furtardo, what a classic song
and as demonstrated above, very easily to amend a few words and make it about actual man eating sharks, and that is very handy if you have to write an introduction to a game called Maneater, which I do.
The newly announced ShaRkPG places you in the fins of a hard as nails shark who likes nothing more than noshing down on juicy humans. The shark can be upgraded to help you munch more people and you can also pick out some delightful new looks for your fishy friend.
Set in the unforgiving waters of the southern US Gulf Coast, Maneater finds players fighting to survive in rivers and streams as well as the open ocean, with danger lurking at every depth. Their only tools are their wits, their jaws, and an uncanny ability to evolve as they feed. Anything and everything is on the menu… kill or be killed. In this tale of revenge, players can take on the role of an ever-evolving shark and terrorize the coastal waterways, tearing swimmers and divers limb from limb, giving the humans a reason to fear what lies below. Immersed in a living, breathing world full of threats and rewards, players will have a vast world to explore sunken wrecks, lurk in swamps, or cruise the open ocean looking for their next unsuspecting meal. As your shark evolves customize your maneater to fit YOUR play style. Eat, Grow, Evolve.
Maneater launches on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on May 22nd 2020.
