Cinco de mayo promotion for all Ship (and The Ship Remasted) owners!

¡Hola Amigos y Enemigos!

¡Feliz cinco de mayo!

We’re big fans of a party! It’s time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
To get the fiesta started, we are giving all owners of The Ship and The Ship Remasted 15% off our latest game, Murderous Pursuits. Muchas Gracias for your support all these years.

Murderous Pursuits is our NEW game – here are a few ways its different from its predecessor:

Uno: A stealthier game! Random killing will get you absolutely nowhere. Use your cunning skills, watch, learn, and use your abilities to the best of…well, your ability.

Dos: Multiple hunters and a continuous kill loop A quarry tracker will help you evade your hunters and locate your quarries.

Tres: 3rd Person (vs.1st person in The Ship) Changing the gameplay significantly by allowing you to scan the room looking for your quarry without moving and being caught by your hunter.

Cuatro: No need for “Needs”! Love it or hate it, Murderous Pursuits doesn’t have the need for “Needs”. It’s less SIM-like and you won’t need to run for a bathroom break mid-kill.

Cinco: No need for Doors, have a pie instead. Why? Because why not. Blend in with NPCs and have a pie while you wait for the kill.

No time for a hangover: Get your Cinco de Mayo gift of 15% off before it expires in 10 days. Find it in your Steam inventories.
…And Feliz cinco de mayo!

“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

Finding a Server

Ahoy Shipmates!

Unfortunately the in-game server browser is no longer working. However, players can connect to servers via the Steam Client > View > Servers (if you don't see The Ship you may have to restart the client). Feel free to drop by the forums to chat about this and you can find a more detail explanation of the issues in our announcement: http://steamcommunity.com/games/theship/announcements/detail/194000194554609687

Please read our State of the Game announcement: http://steamcommunity.com/gid/103582791430084264/announcements/detail/194000194554609687

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.
