Tripwire Interactive's Maneater is a breath of fresh oxygenated water through the gills, as far as gaming is concerned, where we take on the role of a young Bull Shark and nurse her through a life less loved by humans and other beasties of the sea, graduating her from a young 'un through to an elder statesfish. And all while eating up as much trash as possible -- in this case "trash" is interchangeable between literal trash and figurative humans as trash.

It's not without its faults, but the game goes to a lot of lengths to keep players engaged, enlightened and entertained. Here's a snippet:
It’s an odd reference to make, but Maneater reminds me a lot of games from the late 90s and early noughties. In fact, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater came to mind early, if only for the checklist-styled objectives riddled throughout the game-world, alongside the irreverent humour and the permeation of pop-culture Easter eggs. And this helps the game remain one step ahead of itself -- it doesn’t take itself seriously, but the setup alone is a thinker for us bipeds, giving food for thought on just what the world beneath any watery surface looks like to the actual custodians of those spaces. Naturally liberty has been taken on the social commentary side of the game, so it’s (hopefully) more over-the-top than the real world, but in our current climate with those in charge… I dunno. And I also digress.
