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.

Hello dear players,

The Griffin is in a business-like mood today - the sun is shining, the birds are tweeting, and a small (but no doubt vital) power transformer is being built outside the office to the sound of jack hammers and bucket lifts. Why, with the window open it almost feels like we’re building it, too. :)

Overcome with such auditory delights, awash in stack-overflows, excess coffee, and the turn-of-the century, post-expressionistic poetry that is indie game development, our thoughts have once again turned to discount wares and unashamed self-promotion. How might we find more players, more funds and more hugs?

(Ahem) But wait, is this a crassly edited pastiche of Pulp Fiction I can hear in the background? Why, yes…yes it is…

JULES: Mm-mm-mm. You know what they call indie games bundled with The Ship in France?
JULES: Tell ‘em, Vincent.
VINCENT: Indie Royale.

Yes, dear reader. THE SHIP is to appear ON INDIE ROYALE, and not just in France.

Woo-hoo! And we even decided to hold the cheese.

The funds we hope to raise are vital to our company growth and continued endeavours, so if you have yet to cross polo mallets in 1920s ocean going luxury, or even if you have, and want a whole load of other, awesome, indie games for a few, shiny shillings, then this is the bundle for you!

So go, fly, sneak or otherwise locomote towards the link below and get yourselves a wodge of warm, indie goodness with that fresh, new-baked smell of home-cooked bundling. Mm-mm-mm.

And if you don’t believe this anthropomorphic carnivore - claw on heart, no wing-pinions crossed - when it hints that (1+LOTS)/LOW PRICE = GOOD, then here’s what Indie Royale have to say:

“Indie Royale is an indie game bundle website that offers up multiple top-quality indie titles every two weeks for you to purchase at seriously silly prices. All you need to do is pay the price stated - or pay more - and the games currently featured will be yours to keep forever.”

So that’s:

Indie Royale

Multiple top-quality indie titles

The Ship

Seriously silly prices.

Sans cheese

Go. Fly. Locomote.


The Griffin.
