Take your chance to feedback on our Full Steam Ahead game project, as it sails onto Steam Greenlight.

As we showed on Kickstarter, we’re delighted to consider, react and adapt to reasonable, constructive, comments and want your feedback.
Unlike that forum anyone on Steam has the opportunity to have their say.

So don’t miss out on the chance to get involved in the development process and tell us what you’d like to see in a sequel to The Ship.

Fun fact: RPS is actually operated in its fun>dane day-to-day fashion entirely from the crowded deck of an upscale 1920s cruise liner. While jovially spinning our thoughts into the most eloquent of wordshapes, Jim, John, Alec, Adam, and I are constantly engaged in a methodical hunt for one other. We like to think that the ever-present threat of death keeps our writing sharp. But finally, I think I’m closing in on my target. Adam, quite simply, has demonstrated that he knows too much>. Look at what he said about the just-announced The Ship sequel – titled Full Steam Ahead - nearly a year ago: “Kick-start The Ship… ‘Full Steam Ahead.’” And sure, I may have rearranged some words to break his maniacally brilliant code, but the point’s still clear as day: Adam must be eliminated. But first, let’s talk about videogames!

The Ship 2

Remember The Ship? You know, the innovative cruise ship-based multiplayer murder game that entertained us back in 2006? It went on to spawn a Hollywood-themed follow-up, Bloody Good Time, and arguably inspired the multiplayer bits of the recent Assassin's Creeds. We thought it had been hit by an iceberg, along (sadly) with developers Outerlight, but it turns out The Ship 2 is unexpectedly plotting a course for Kickstarter.

The game's crowdfunding page will go live on Kickstarter's new UK site on October 31st, which coincidentally is when the site itself is set to launch. Spooky. Despite that, The Ship: Full Steam Ahead will feature on both the US and UK services simultaneously, so you'll be able to pledge in dollars or pounds sterling - but not in Red Dwarf's fancy dollarpounds.

We won't know much about the game until that page sneaks onto the internet, but we do know that the original developers won't be involved - publisher Blazing Griffin bought the rights to The Ship from Outerlight back in 2011. In other news, if you like vague bits of concept art then, hoo boy, are you in luck. The following image offers a very tiny glimpse of what we presume are the new playable characters. They all look a bit... roboty.

Place these paddles firmly on your chest and look below to get your end-of-day gaming news fix applied directly to your circulatory system. Dawn of the Reapers is bringing Mass Effect's most notable starfaring conflict to Sins of a Solar Empire, and The Ship's developers are looking to float a Kickstarter-funded sequel.

Sins of a Solar Empire and Mass Effect. Sometimes, just mashing two awesome things together doesn't produce the best results. We don't think this is one of those times. The Dawn of the Reapers mod will allow you to play as the Council races or their enigmatic enemies in one of the best space-based RTS-4X games of all time.
Full Steam Ahead is a sequel to The Ship, a game where you walk around on a boat and try to stab people in secret. Essentially what our last few PC Gamer office retreats looked like. Scottish developers Blazing Griffin have announced a Kickstarter for the follow-up embarking on October 25.
Project Lumoria is a mod that adds an expansive new campaign using assets from that one Halo game that actually came out on PC and people actually cared about. You know, the one that didn't have any numbers at the end. Set in the early years of the Human-Covenant War, the missions have been in development since 2008.
Microsoft is dropping SpaceBux Microsoft Points in Windows 8, embracing the radical idea of just using existing currencies instead of making new ones up.
Mafia is being remade in the GTA IV engine, speaking of porting cool things into other cool things. Chances are, we'll all be quantum dust by tomorrow.

I desperately want to play with that tassel.

I’m incredibly proud to announce that Indie Royale has finally graduated. I haven’t the foggiest idea of what it’s actually graduated from>, but it has one of those fun dangly tassel hats now, so that means it’s probably smarter than me. Before it goes off and writes the next great American novel while aboard a rocket of its own construction made from inferior American novels, however, it’s putting more indie games on sale. Six more of them, in fact – including the debut of retro-themed zombie-blasting RPG Dead Pixels. “But wait,” you might say, tossing around high-level math like some kind of graduate-school-bound indie bundle, “that’s only one> game; where are the other five?” Be educated after the break.
