Jaws video game!

I don't play video games, but if I did, I'd immediately buy the upcoming Jaws Unleashed game, in which you play the shark. Cool screencaps here and here.

The game apparently will be out in August.

UPDATE: As poster Andy (see comments) has posited, this might well be an April Fool's Gag. If so, it was a raging success. Just Google "Jaws Unleashed." I'd be sad if it were, but maybe the evident interest in the story would inspire someone to do a real game, assuming this is a jape.

I'm guessing thats an April Fool's joke. There was a Jaws game for the old NES thats regarded as one of the worst games ever.

I thought of that, but there's an awful lot of info on the web about it. Google 'Jaws Unleashed.'

Actually it does look like it may be real. If it is, I think it would be a lot of fun.

Jaws is back, and now he's hijacking boats and selling drugs in "Grand Theft Orca: Amity Island"

If it was an April Fool's Day joke, they announced it a day early. The article is timestamped March 31st at 3PM.

Jaws UNLEASHED??!?

Man, I'd hate to have to do THAT particular job at the aquarium....

Easier, though, than leashing him in the first place.

It's a real game. It was mentioned several months before this April.

It's like Free Willy, except the kid gets eaten.

Is it wrong of me to be really amused by the term "dismemberment engine?"

"Created by Appaloosa Interactive, developer of the award-winning Ecco the Dolphin series."

For some reason, this struck me as hilarious.
