What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Shark Attack Deathmatch 2 is a thrilling experience, as soon as we felt that the build was stable we wanted to get it into players hands. We want players to play and enjoy this game and help expand on the vision we have for it.

Shark Attack Deathmatch 2 is in a very playable and enjoyable state. We believe it's the perfect time to get it out to players to get us as much feedback as early on, while we continue to work to create one of the best underwater FPS Games on steam.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to have the game completed in 4-6 months from early access release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We’ll be updating the game frequently based on our Community’s feedback. The full version of the game will contain more levels, game modes, and code improvements to ensure a great gameplay experience.

Coming soon:
- Additional maps/environments
- Additional weapons and gear
- Additional Sharks and Creatures”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early access build is in Beta. Our focus for the early access release was a version that exceeded the Shark Attack Deahtmatch 1 experience. The base mechanics are in place and are complete and working.

The early Access Build is stable and captures all of the tension, brutality and excitement people will love about this game.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is potential for the price to increase, but we will determine this as the game draws closer to completion.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our development team will be very active in the Steam forums, engaging with players daily taking in their feedback and addressing issues on a regular update cadence. Many of the new ideas that fans present to the team will be implemented based on time and benefit to the overall experience.”

Bought it and played for 2 hours, thought it was alright but would need a lot of patches and bug fixes to be enjoyable for longer play sessions.
We're now +3 months later and not a single update has been released.

Shark Attack Deathmatch 2 is an easy-to-pick-up-on first person shooter.
You are placed in an eerie environment, from the selection of 5 or 6 maps. When you die, you lose points, when you get kills, you gain points. If you are playing deathmatch, those points allow you to rank up. If you are playing survival (which can also be co-op), you can use it to try to beat your high score.
Different sharks are worth different points because some take more hits and/or bite harder. On online deathmatch, the focus is killing each other for points, along with sharks coming to kill you. However, you can toggle sharks on or off in deathmatch. Deathmatch lobbies allow 2-8 players.
The gameplay and graphics are beautiful, but it will has one fatal flaw. Almost no one plays it.
There are never any available online games. You have to host them yourself, and if you are lucky, another player joins. This really deteriorates from the idea that this is supposed to be a competitive FPS against other players.

In all, I enjoy this game. Deathmatch and survival are fun, the AI is great, really nothing to complain about other than the size of the fan base.
This used to cost $10. For the price of $5, it is absolutely worth it.

Having been a diver for 44 years, and owning both this and "Depth", this is my favorite shark game. Not that "Depth" is bad, it's a good game. But this...this is a truly nerve-wracking nightmare of marauding sharks.

It proceeds at much more realistic speeds than "Depth", and also looks better. The feeling of actually diving is much more realistic as well. The game is rock stable and highly immersive even in Early Access; from the rhythmic sound of your regulator as you breathe to the gorgeous underwater scenery, to the outstanding modeling and animation of the sharks.

There are plenty of maps, and a number of different game options including a single player mode. Multiplayer is up and running.

One of the best bargains on Steam. Highly recommended. Grab it now because once people start discovering this title, the price will likely go up. This is going to be very popular, and it desrves to be.

Lighthouse Games has truly produced an underwater masterpiece.

Not bad, but nobody is playing this. Also this game is nothing compared to Depth, a real premium underwater shooter.
Just look at the play times of the reviewers, almost nobody played this more than 2 hours. This game lacks depth <---ultra funny joke kek xdddd

A story of my first harrowing minutes:

I had just gotten out of training. The boat left, and I was down there in the blue. There was an old Russian sub, and it gave me the willies.

As I swam, I saw shapes in the darkness. Big ones. I start to panic.

Rocks. They were rocks.

One thing they don't teach you in training: it's quiet down there. You see, they train us all at once, so we get used to the noise.

But it's quiet. So quiet, you can hear your heartbeat. And your thoughts echo in your head. But you can't speak; you've got scuba gear on, and furthermore, if you speak, you know that THEY will hear you.

Then I saw moving shapes. No, scratch that; I HEARD them way before I saw them. When everything is still, the tinest movement is audible.

They were indistinct, far away. I didn't dare move; I just watched.

Manta Rays. Two kind old Mantas, out for a swim. I relaxed.

And then I felt something pass me.

It was monstrous. Its skin was black and scarred with harpoon-marks and shark-tooth scars. Its shadow blocked out the distant, indistinct, iridescent sun.

A shark.

I raised my harpoon gun confidently, despite my terror; this thing was HUGE, but that meant it was a big target.

I dodged it, effortlessly; it was big, lethargic, and not-too-aggressive. I killed it.

Something darted between my legs. I could feel my heartbeat begin to race; like an infernal pump in my ears. Thump thump, thump thump, thump thump.

It bit me. I blinked and reeled from the pain, spinning to see what had attacked me.

It was a Mako.

And it wasn't alone.

I began to swim up. That's when I learned it.

I'm afraid of heights. I'm afraid of submarines. I'm afraid of big, indistinct shapes in the distance of that savage, silent deep.

And I'm afraid of sharks.

I neared the surface and saw the magnitude of my predicament; Six Makos and a Tiger shark had followed me, circling gleefully. They could taste my blood.

I screamed. I begged the sky for help.

But the sky has no reach in the Deep. That's Death's dominion.

Whoever desinged the sharks a.i deserves a medal. The sharks actually behave like a predator in real life. They just lurk in the shadows waiting for the right moment to strike. Stopping the sharks from getting too close is only half the challenge, you also have to watch out for everyone else on the map because it's deathmatch which means every man for himself. And if that wasn't hard enough you have to watch your oxygen supply because when it gets low you have to go and find the oxygen supply and there's only one in the map.

The graphics are not the best and some of the sharks look a bit off but overall this is a good cheap game that just hasn't been realised yet I hope it gets popular eventually!
