Hi everyone,

A number of users reported an issue running the Single Player as a standalone game (without multiplayer). Valve have looked into the issue and we've both concluded there's nothing we can do to resolve it within the constraints of our licence.

So, we've decided to remove the Single Player from the Steam store permanently and everyone who has purchased the Single Player will be able to claim a free copy of the Complete Package, which includes Single and Multiplayer.

We've emailed Valve just now to make all this happen, so there's a chance you won't see this (the community hub will be removed as well), so it will be cross-posted on the main Ship forums. With any luck this change will be in place this week.

Again, apologies for the inconvenience for the situation.

A quick update on the goings-on with Blazing Griffin!

We're Growing
Our team has expanded over the past few months, with several new team members joining us.

Fans of The Ship will be excited to know that one of our new recruits is Jason Kocemba, who was Technical Director with Outerlight and worked on The Ship (including the original Half Life mod) and Bloody Good Time! :)

More info...

Distant Star: Revenant Fleet


We've also just launched alpha access to our new space RTS and we're now on Steam Greenlight. You can check out the trailer and game info over on our Greenlight page: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=341433138

Hi all,

A few players have reported the error message "requires mods to run" when trying to play The Ship: Single Player without having purchased the multiplayer game.

Just to clarify, The Ship: Single Player is a standalone game and does not require mods to run!

We were unable to replicate this bug internally, so it was difficult to hunt down the issue, but our Technical Director chatted with Valve over the weekend and it turns out the error was at their end and they've now fixed it.

Can I ask anyone who had issues with the game, to uninstall and reinstall via the Steam client and let me know if there are further problems please?

Best regards

Come on, you know this is the perfect weekend to troll your friends, you may as well do it with a well timed bomb on the toilet!

The Ship (Complete Package) comes with both multiplayer and single player games, and each purchase gives you two additional gift copies for friends, and they each get another gift copy! That's five copies in total - a great deal!

For years now, we've sat back and watched friendships being torn apart by The Ship. We've seen your former best friend blow you up on the toilet more times than we can count. We've watched you retaliate with a mannequin’s arm. Frankly, we took great pleasure in watching the situation escalate – the purse bombs, the piranhas, the sleeping potions, the cleavers, the scalpels, the sauna and…the umbrellas…oh God, the umbrellas…the things you did with those umbrellas…

Then, one day, there was nothing. The friendships that once brought you aboard The Ship, lay broken. No doubt you soldier on in your daily life, the salty taste of your own tears a stark reminder of what once was. But it’s not the same, and we know each time you see your former friends playing other Steam games without you, the notifications hurt as much as every badly timed death on The Ship.

Unfortunately, we've gone and done something you’re not going to like. We've added trading cards to the multiplayer game. We know each one of the (admittedly, quite beautiful) cards, backgrounds, badges and emoticons will be like tiny pixelated axes chopping away at the brave facade you've been putting on. Quite literally in one case…there’s an actual tiny pixelated axe!

We’re truly sorry and offer our full support through these difficult times.

Note: Steam Trading Cards are earned by playing The Ship Multiplayer only.
