i really like this game and it was super scary , so scary that my pc dident wanted to play it lool

It hun
an immortal killer hunts you in this game, no one knows how to escape it and no one ever has.

8/10, was confused on how to escape the sharks, once locked on killed you no matter what and there was no way to out maneuver them.

I included this game as the 3rd of three scary games in my video! A fun concept but I couldn't make any progress. I don't know if I was doing something wrong but it was nearly impossible to escape the sharks - they saw through the hiding spots once or twice. Not bad overall, but could use some work - maybe more hiding spots and / or a way to escape more effectively.

Anyways, here's the video. Sharkphobia starts at 38:00 : 

You're game helped me get to where I am today. Thank You!

Really challenging game! I did struggle with trying to hide from the sharks, it seems that they can get through and take a bite out of me anyway. I had fun with it. 


I had some trouble running this getting fps drops unfortunately but even through that it was a pretty unique experience, and just the thought of being trapped looking for any way out was really creepy. Sharks are cool to me tho LOL so I wasn't afraid of them but I really liked it.  Here's my playthrough this game starts at 23:08

These sharks are vicious!

So I decided to play the game after a while playing this game I realized that I'm Super Scared of Sharks and Shark Attacks and have Thalassophobia @Azaxor thanks for the diagnosis LMAO!!!. Overall it was a fun experience I was screaming but I was getting random FPS Drops in some parts of the Cave but it wasn't too troublesome. I enjoyed the creation Thank you for making it.

Well made. This really was hard for me to play. I really have a fear of anything, that has teeth and swims. But I managed to beat it,  after being chased and screaming like a little girl.

GOT SCARED A BUNCH XD here's my vid hope you enjoy : )

Game begins at 5:01 , I absolutely have no idea how I finished the game, what I was doing but the amount of sharks that chased me was so funny. 

This was pretty good. Wasn't able to beat it but still had fun trying to escape the sharks. Made a video on it.

There are definitely a lot of sharks in this game. The concept of this game is a really good one, but I think there should be more hiding places. But, you know know, when under da sea.


My YT is Overcouch and I hope you liked the video and please subscribe to my channel

Funny/scary game check out gameplay here! SHARKPHOBIA - YouTube

That's a lot of sharks. It went from me trying to strategically sneak through to just running and hoping for the best. Nice job

this made me scream more than any other game, maybe its the fear of deep water, but god damn this fucking game gets it

sharks are scary 

Cool game here's a speedrun

Scared the pants off me but still a great with great graphics. Totally worth playing.

The graphics in this game were unique but the sharks were extremely buggy. They continue to chase me and won’t leave me alone. Also had no idea where to hide and I kept dying to random things. Probably jellyfish but idk. Was just very disappointed cause I had no idea what I was doing. 

as someone with thalassophobia, this game was absolutely terrifying. oh my.

That was fun!  I do wish there was a health meter.  and the character seems to be less floating in the 3D space as much as they're bound to walking across the floor.

this is literally what is called thalasophobia


Your game starts at 00:00. Those sharks are relentless! Awesome game. The visuals and creatures were amazing. You really get a sense of dread down there. Great work!

*crunch munch crunch munch*

good graphics but sharks abit loopy

The sharks were goofy but the visuals were great, especially the water and vr effects.

Just checking if there's anything else to the game other than just completing it because I noticed its quite easy to just go straight to the end but the map size is quite big.

Also I don't think its my PC but I noticed when playing on 1440p resolution with more than two sharks loaded in the game would go full on potato mode, when I switched to 1080p it was completely fine.

Liked the environments a lot, best moment was seeing the shark come toward you from a tunnel in the distance and just running straight to a crevice. It was clear though that I wasn't swimming, that lowkey broke the immersion.

I LOVE anything that takes place in the ocean! These types of games are few and far between and I love it! Also, claustrophobic caves and sharks are a bad combo.. in a good way! Great job!

Very fun game! I feel like it was super hard so unfortunately I wasn't able to beat it, but still got some pretty good moments recorded!

That was pretty fun. It's definitely hard at first but it gets easier once you figure a few things out. Thanks, dude! I always love playing your games. 

Subnautica players will love this!
