We are so close to getting the shARkPG that is Maneater in our hands and now we have one more final look at the game before May 22nd. The final developer diary for those looking to see what Blindside Interactive has been toying with over the last few years. Also a new video to get a better idea on what will be coming out with this Tripwire Interactive title. Maneater is all about us getting to play the deadly shark in a video game and it looks like it will be a bit more than that. Outside of the usual RPG elements of upgrading and evolving as we set out on a mission to do what sharks do best. With a little extra flair as this is a video game still and swimming and eating fish would get boring after a while.
In the latest video here for Maneater, though, we get a better understanding of how the story is going to unfold. We all knew it was going to be in the form of a documentary with the fun voice overs. Now it sounds like this is going to be the final version of that show, which to me sounds like how they are going to handle game over screens. The wrong edit of events or something. All while capturing the real events with sophisticated drones that will highlight the audio choices for Maneater to give us a better feel for it all. We will need it as we hunt down all of those motion-captured humans out there. Something that is also fun to see in this new video as they get directions that they are being eaten by a shark that is on land. Have a look and get ready for the final launch in a few weeks.
