"A great game in the Source Engine which has a very interesting multiplayer mode with a pretty decent Singleplayer mode to match, worth to get in a sale."

State of the Game

Ahoy Shipmates!

Here at Blazing Griffin we’ve been watching the developments surrounding Valve’s refund policy announcement with interest (as have most indie devs). While there have been concerns raised about the policy, we believe the spirit in which it is intended is ultimately good for the games industry.

With this in mind, we’ve decided for The Ship: Murder Party that it is important that we re-iterate the state of the game and the wider franchise. We’ll keep this announcement up to date with new developments – the intention is that it contains the information you need to know before you decide whether to buy or not.

Technical Issues
As a studio we are always open to suggestions and welcome any constructive criticism from our players.

Unfortunately there are a few technical issues with the game and these can’t be fixed in its current incarnation. The reason they can’t be fixed is when we acquired the rights to the game in 2011 it didn’t include a technical licence to make changes using the Source Engine (which the game is written in).

We’re open to suggestions from players about our games and happy to implement good ideas or even make simple fixes – not being able to do it is an incredibly frustrating situation for us as well!

There are summaries of the issues and fixes for them on the forums, but the key ones you might want to know about are:
  • In-game server select doesn’t work. But this isn’t a problem because it’s still possible to connect to servers via the Steam client > View > Servers > The Ship. Here you can find and save servers as normal. You can still host LAN games and there are several other methods of adding servers manually posted on the forums.
  • Game doesn’t run. For a very few players, the game doesn’t work at all (although some players have found workarounds for this). Our hope is that Valve’s refund policy will now give you the option to try it out and see how things work on your machine.

Again, if we possibly could resolve any of these issues we would, but the cost of the licence to even begin doing so is more than it would cost to rebuild the game from scratch. Being a small studio, it's just not a viable option for us.

Players
You can see from Steam Charts how active the game is. There are usually a good number of active servers available and through busy periods such as the holidays and sales there are usually more people setting up new servers and posting the details on the forums.

Modding
There is a Ship SDK available and support via Valve’s developer site. You can make new maps for the game. No other modding options are supported.

There are a number of players working on new maps and have an interest in modding. This is something we’re keen to begin having a conversation about with players, and while we’re not making any promises about modding support, please drop by the discussion on the topic and let us know what you think.

If there's enough interest there, we can certainly look at helping out.

The Ship: HD
Yes, you read it right.

You might be wondering why you’ve not heard anything about this yet? The reason for that is that this is the announcement!



We’ve begun work on The Ship: HD (which as the name suggests will be a high definition version of The Ship: Murder Party multiplayer game) and it is expected to be released early 2016. Even better, we’ll now have complete control over the code base so the issues with the existing game won’t affect the HD version and we’ll even be able to make the odd improvement or two.

We are fortunate to have been joined by two former employees of Outerlight (the developer of original HL2 mod, The Ship and Bloody Good Time) – Jason joined our team last year as Technical Director and Neil joined our team just this week as Lead Programmer. It’s fantastic to have their input on the project and we’re really excited about where we’re heading with it.

The reason we’re talking about this just now is that in the spirit of transparency, it might be information you need to make a decision about whether or not to buy The Ship: Murder Party - some people may want to wait until the HD version comes out next year.

If you do – that’s fair enough. We hope you keep up to date with what we’re doing (check out our newsletter) and we’ll see you next year!

For everyone else, we hope you try out the original game – it’s a lot of fun! And what’s good for you, is definitely good for us! We’re a pretty small studio here and having just gone through a growth spurt to be able to take on The Ship: HD project, we are reliant on the revenue generated by The Ship: Murder Party to move forward with it.

All purchases contribute to funding the HD project and we are very appreciative of this support from players – we're sure many of you have waited a long time for more ship-related things to happen! So as a thank you for those supporting us with purchases of the existing game (now and historically), there will be a discount for existing players when we launch The Ship: HD.

Over the next few months we'll be releasing more information about The Ship: HD project - stay tuned! In the meantime, if you have anything to say about any of this, please drop by the forums - we're happy to chat about it.

And here's the teaser trailer for The Ship: HD:

レビュー

“its gameplay and design draw on everything from Poirot to Quake, with even a slightly unhealthy dose of The Sims thrown into the mix - but the game is much more than the sum of its well worn parts”
8 – Videogamer

“Unlike a lot of its hybrid predecessors, this multigenre multiplayer game really is something completely different. While the game draws on identifiable sources such as Quake, The Sims, and Clue, it mashes these elements together with a few new ideas to create an innovative experience that doesn't play like any of its inspirations.”
8.3 – Gamespot

“the game twists around the Clue formula to make it a little more interesting. Instead of having to uncover a killer, The Ship makes you the killer. The main gameplay mechanic revolves around finding your target, called your quarry, and breaking their face as stealthily as possible. To do so there are plenty of lethal odds-and-ends to wield, and even some environmental traps. It's certainly a quirky take on first-person gaming, but it's an entertaining one once you get the hang of it.”
7.4 – IGN

「本日はXXX船に来席くださいましてまことにありがとうございます。
 心逝くまで、どうぞ疑心暗鬼になって殺しあってください。」

船に乗った者はそれぞれ「狙う者」と「狙われる者」がいる。
最初から武器は持っておらず船の物資を使おう。
見張りの前で攻撃するなよ…捕まっても責任は取れないゾ。
しかしせっかく船に乗り込んで犯人を捜すだけじゃ人間味ないよなぁ?
トイレに行ったり風呂に入ったり食事したりおしゃれしようZE★

シングルシナリオと、シングル用(対PC)のモードのみでも結構楽しめます。
シングル対戦には、個人戦、チーム戦、バトルロイヤル等の各モードがあり
各モードに更に、死ぬまでとか、王様(VIP)殺しとかがあって、
要は単純なおにごっこから、つかまえ鬼、隠れ鬼みたいなモードで
結構なバリエーション楽しめます。まぁ、モードによっては自分が先に死ぬと超暇なんですけど(笑)

参加人数、チーム人数、ハンター側人数、制限時間から
犯罪バレ条件、その難易度、生理的欲求の難易度などが
設定出来、MAPも船の上という条件(但し1MAPはリゾートアイランド風)ながら
10MAP以上程度あります。

基本MAPを覚えた方が強いので、
プレイヤー自身の慣れによる成長が大きく勝敗を左右します。

豪華客船設定の上に、そこそこMAPが広く、船と言う設定上
狙撃で一方的という事もなく、強力な武器(一撃系)はすぐ逮捕モードになりますので
武器とみなされない様な、傘とかマネキンの腕とかで撲殺場面が多いです(笑)
傘でも3~4撃くらいで死にます(苦笑)

音楽もこじゃれたジャズ系BGMが多く
調度も豪華客船風なので、船旅を楽しんでいる感じは味わえます。
もっとも余裕をこいてるとすぐ死ぬので、次のステージ待ちや自由時間にしましょう(笑)
(モードにもよりますが、死んだ順番等により結構暇な時間が多めのゲームです)

なかなかシュールな出来なので
決して「すごく面白い!」訳ではありませんが
シュールな殺しを楽しみながら(笑)船旅を楽しんでみては如何でしょうか。

私は密かに、子供の頃の、鬼ごっこ系、ドロケイ系を思い出して
楽しかったし、きっとこれからもそこそこ起動するゲームになりそうです。

1. Played the tutorial and though "Meh, I should be good"

2. I play the Singleplayer Campaign

3. I find a Tommy Gun in the first cupboard I look in

4. I think "Sweet, a Tommy Gun >:D"

5. I find my Quarry sitting in a chair, sleeping

6. I decide to shoot the Quarry with the Tommy Gun I found

7. I wanted the best accuracy so I right click to attempt to aim down the sights of my Tommy Gun

8. I realise that you cannot aim down your sights

9. The gun flies out of my character's hands faster than the bullet would've travelled

10. My gun collides with my Quarry and somehow kills my Quarry

10/10 Would use unrealistic throwing abilities and physics to kill my Quarry again.

I was in TeamSpeak with a couple of my friends and one of them was my quarry.

My quarry went and hid inside one of the toilets. After a while he wanted to leave, but there was a random guy blocking his exit.

So I looked over the shoulder of the random guy and shot my friend in the face with the Blunderbuss.

I shot him straight back onto the toilet, and the random guy walked in and ♥♥♥♥♥♥ on his corpse.



10/10.
