In honor of the Discovery Channel’s 20th Anniversary of Shark Week, area/code has designed Sharkrunners. Running into one of the creatures corresponds to a real one’s whereabouts and movements since the game is based on real world telemetry data from actual great whites. Gamers choose a team and control their ships, and are contacted by e-mail or SMS when one is spotted. GPS units attached to the sharks allows observation only. No tossing chum and/or destroying the fish is permitted. Sharkrunners was designed for purely educational and entertainment purposes only. We think this is a pleasant diversion, but wish they had embedded the theme from Jaws whenever one is spotted.
