Here’s the launch trailer for Maneater, the open-world RPG where you play as a very angry shark. Like Trevor from GTA V, but probably better-adjusted.

Did you ever wonder what Jaws would be like if the shark were the protagonist? [What do you mean? The shark wasn’t the protagonist? – Marine biology Ed.]

If you have been wondering that, then Maneater – the open-world open-water RPG that made a splash at E3 a couple of years ago – can’t have escaped your attention. The premise is simple. And stupid. But that makes it stupidly simple, which makes it brilliant?

Look, we don’t make the rules. But the point is, you weirdos are all excited for Maneater, so we’re happy to oblige with further information. In this instance, it’s the game’s launch trailer.

Fair warning: it’s a bit gruesome. Funny, but gruesome.

Maneater launches later this week, on May 22, on PS4, Xbox One, and on PC via the Epic Games Store.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
