Fun with JAWS

January 19, 2006

I was flipping through a magazine, and apparently a video game developer has gained the rights to JAWS, because there’s a JAWS Unleashed game coming out soon, where you swim around as a shark and pluck people from boats, and then shred them up various ways to eat them. It’s up to you how you like your bloody human: creamy or chunky. Think JIFFY.

Some of the features:

  • Dismemberment engine provides multiple points of disconnection allowing for characters and objects to be torn apart piece by piece
  • Follow story-based missions or choose to freely roam the island and its surroundings causing havoc
  • Face fearsome arena bosses including killer whales, powerful boats and more
  • See your victims before they know you’re coming and target lock on enemies from afar with Shark Vision
  • Created by Appaloosa Interactive, developer of the award-winning Ecco the Dolphin series

I like how the level bosses are Killer Whales, and Ecco the Dolphin was their inspiration. Brillliant.

I wonder if the game’s target audience is composed of marine biologists…? What a weird idea for a game that is, though. Next thing you know, they’re gonna let you play as Normon Bates from Psycho. See how many attractive women you can lure into a hotel room to slaughter, kids! Leave no traces for the pesky detectives or risk being exposed as a freak with mother issues. (Actually sounds kinda fun…)

    I want one. And a Psycho one too. Ossum.

    I’m not really a sicko.
