Maneater is an open-world action RPG developed by an independent studio Blindside Interactive; it's a team consisting of people who have previously created the warmly received Depth. The game was published by Tripwire Interactive.
The main character of Maneater is the eponymous man-eating shark, orphaned and left for dead in the waters of the Gulf Coast. Our primary task is to ensure that the protagonist manages not only to survive, but also to stand at the top of the local food chain. Only then will our protege be ready to take revenge on the people responsible for his mother's death.
While playing Maneater we observe the action from TPP. Despite the original premise, the gameplay does not differ from the genre formula. As we play<, we explore the waters of the Gulf Coast, plundering sunken wrecks and nearby swamps, and searching the ocean floor for edible organisms.
Due to the fact that in this production we play the role of a shark, the character progression system in the game is based on food. In the course of the game we devour not only swimmers relaxing in the waters of the Gulf Coast and divers exploring underwater secrets, but also other marine organisms; among them there are other predators fiercely defending themselves against landing in the stomach of the shark.
Fortunately, our shark evolves over time; the enlargement of a selected part of his body results in the enhancement of certain features, and consequently - in the increase of the hero's combat potential. Thanks to this, his menu is constantly expanded, over time including organisms we could never devouring earlier.
Maneater uses the Unreal Engine 4 technology; the locations we visit are full of details, as are the models of organisms we encounter. The game is characterized by a high level of brutality.
