Escape From the Fishing Community Island
One fish, two fish, red fish... Demon fish? Yes, in the survival game, Escape From the Fishing Community Island, bloodthirsty barracudas and murderous marlins have decided to rebel against the fishing village where you happen to be taking your holiday. All the villagers have run off in their boats, leaving you to fend for yourself and try to find an escape. You'll move with [WASD] or [arrow] keys, shoot and search houses with the mouse; your goal is to look for a boat, which is your only ticket off the island, while staying away from the hellfish.
At the start, you get to choose two out of three weapons (harpoon, hooks or net), the size of the island and the difficulty mode. You are then dropped in the middle of the place with a map and the fish of all shapes and sizes swarming around. Before locating the boat, you have to find some fuel, the boat keys and your wife, which means that rifling through houses is necessary. The villagers have left all sorts of goodies behind, from health-restoring pigs' legs to small children who can help repair your net. Any kind of help is certainly welcome, since it's impossible to finish the game without frequent clashes with vicious fish, some of which are three times your size, so it's best to choose your battles carefully. Easily the best aspect of the game is the atmosphere, a minimalistic nightmare of dead trees and eerie pale fish intent on murder. There's something profoundly disturbing about fish behaving so freely on dry land, even more so when you're surrounded by them on a small island. This game knows claustrophobia and uses it well, mixing it with a bleak environment and creating a chilling effect which will make you look at fish a little differently.
