Jaws 2 has the most deceptive tagline of all time. “Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water”, it chortles, threatening you with an angry shark. The lie here, of course, is that it’s never been safe to go in the water. If it’s not a shark that gets you, it’ll be a jellyfish, and if it’s not a jellyfish, it’ll be a kraken or the ghost of a diver. It’s an awful place, the water, but Abandon Ship [official site] makes it look like a fantastic destination for adventure.
It’s a bit like FTL with waterships instead of spaceships, and the latest trailer shows us the combat. And some terrible, unpleasant tentacles.
