About This Game

For PC gamers who enjoy multiplayer games with a bit of intelligence, intrigue and ingenuity, The Ship is a murder mystery alternative to traditional FPS multiplayer games. Each player is given a Quarry to kill - and must evade their own Hunter in the process, all set on board a series of 1920s art deco cruise ships.

The Ship is owned by the mysterious Mr X and as one of many 'lucky' recipients of a free ticket you arrive on board The Ship to find there's a catch to your luxury cruise. You are coerced into a brutal Hunt to indulge Mr. X's fantasies, under threat of death for not only yourself, but also your family. Your only chance to save yourself and your family is to play the Hunt and win.

Combining stealthy multiplayer action and a needs system, The Ship is a truly unique gaming experience.

This package includes a tutorial, The Ship Single Player, which introduces you to some gameplay mechanics and storyline, and The Ship Multiplayer where you can hunt and be hunted by other players.

A Good Pathway for Multi-Player
This single-player experience of the ship is good for players wanting to see what the game is about before going into multiplayer. The start lays out a good tutorial of the game to come and a few levels to get you started. However, as you progress through the levels, it gets a little easier but i guess that means that you are ready for multi-player!

This games is really fun to play even though it can make you rage sometimes but the best thing to after you finish the game is to go back to the mission were you have to break the radar instead of doing that just kill the guys that come out there is not limit they spawn infinite but overall this game is really good

5.2/10 - Great if it wasn't so Tomagotchi

Good story, not super original though. Basically, you are taken aboard a ship where you and others must kill each other for survival. Last person standing gets a ticket off the boat.

The real downside for me is the "Tomagotchi" element. You have to feed, sleep, poop, entertain etc.. all while hunting down your marks.

I would love to play this with just the story and the murders. Lower marks for too much work.

Worth $3. More if you like to feed and poop things.
