According to an extremely lazy, brief Google search, sharks only kill a person every two years in the US.
Ed the Shark aims to bolster those numbers using machine guns, huge ball & chains, and other weaponry in Shark Simulator, a game about the shark’s reign of terror on the beaches and beyond.
Players can control Ed’s flopping, lethal approach through the streets of an otherwise peaceful paradise island. You might think this would be contained to the water, but Ed does all right by land, especially when you equip him with a rocket pack or some of the other tools that will let him roam the land and sky. Or you could just throw a hat on him and watch him flop across the streets. It’s wide open.
You’re also free to equip him with various weapons, like a giant ball & chain, and send him whirling around, clobbering beachgoers and other folks just trying to enjoy their vacation. Various types of firearms and melee weapons are all available to be swung around by a shark with no arms, but your ridiculous adventures may get cut short by the police, given they don’t seem to appreciate your bloody antics.
If your day was seeming just a bit too serious, Shark Simulator should fix that pretty quick.
Shark Simulator is available for $ 7.99 on Steam Early Access. For more information on the game and developer Aerilon Studios, you can head to the game’s site, the developer’s site, or follow them on YouTube and Twitter.
