A downloadable game for Windows

What?

Play as a lurking lake monster and snatch tourists and photographers from their waterside relaxation. Just don’t get your picture in the local papers!

Why?

It sounded like a good idea at the time. Also I’m a poor modeller, so having an invisible protagonist worked well. Oh yeah, and the game was made for Monster Mash 2014 but was too late to submit.

How?

Use WASD to move, Space to attack when you’re near somebody, Ctrl to make some bubbles and scare them, and Shift to swim more slowly. If you have a controller plugged in, you should be able to move with the left stick, attack with A, bubble with B, and swim slowly by leaning lightly on the stick. At any time you can hit Escape to do just that.
