The Ship: Murder Party - [BG] Claudia
¡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!

We would like to thank all of The Ship supporters over the years by inviting you to our Closed Beta of Murderous Pursuits , Blazing Griffin's newest game. Check out the trailer here !

Those of you who loved The Ship, will love Murderous Pursuits. It's a kill-or-be-killed Victorian stealth-em-up for 1-8 players in which you must hunt and kill your quarry before your hunters do the same to you, all while avoiding witnesses.

Sound familiar? We like to think of it as a spiritual successor to The Ship with added abilities and much more stealthy gameplay!

Key Features include:

  • Hunt in four sumptuous locations aboard the HMCS Britannic - a state-of-the-art, colonial time ship. Blend in with the festivities in the richly decorated Music Hall or wait in the dark corners of the Engine House to pounce on your prey
  • Choose from eight playable characters. Pick your preferred archetype and skin, then blend in with the crowd to avoid detection
  • Master the use of five abilities – only two of which can be chosen each match, so choose wisely
  • Play solo or online multiplayer with up to 8 players, featuring support for custom game options and wickedly intelligent bots

  • 29th of March 12pm EST - 1st of April 12pm EST
  • 6th of April 12pm EST - 9th of April 12pm EST

    For a chance to play in both closed betas, sign up here

    During the betas feel free to jump in to Discord to chat with us or give us feedback on our Steam Community Page

    And if you've liked the game, please remember to wishlist us on Steam!

Ahoy Shipmates!

With the latest patch we’ve moved Dedicated Servers to the open seas and out of the testing drydock! This will allow for the setup of Dedicated Servers that don't require the The Ship: Remasted to be running. If you are hosting a Dedicated Server you will need to ensure your ports are open so that people can see the server and connect.

Opening your ports

If you wish to run a dedicated server please open the following ports;
  • TCP/UDP 7776-7778
  • TCP/UDP 443
The server.cfg file uses 7777 as the default, if you change this then make sure you open one more and one less than this, e.g. If your default is 6555, open ports 6554-6556.

Anyone is now free to host a Dedicated Server. This can be done two ways:

Downloading and running the server anonymously

You do not need to own The Ship: Remasted or have the steam client running to run a server anonymously. This is perfect if you want to run a Remasted Dedicated Server on some dedicated hardware.

Download the server files from here and unzip them to a folder where you would like to install the game.

Then double click the “Run_DedicatedServer.bat” file and it will automatically download all the files needed to run a Remasted Dedicated Server. Note: every time this batch file is run it will check for updates, so whenever a new patch is out re-run the batch file to keep the server up-to-date.

If you wish to change the server rules to a configuration of your own making, be sure to look at the README.txt file found in the ‘Remasted Dedicated’ folder. This explains how to make your own ‘server.cfg’ and change the batch files to use your configuration instead of the default one.


Downloading and running through steam

The other way to launch a Dedicated Server is to download and run it using Steam. Doing it this way will require you to own The Ship: Remasted and be logged into your Steam account.

Download the server tool from within Steam (Library > Tools > Right Click ‘The Ship: Remasted Dedicated Server > Install).

Game settings can be edited in the various files located in the TSRDS_1 folder (...steamapps\common\The Ship Remasted Dedicated Server\TSRDS_1). If this file is not present, running the Dedicated Server once will automatically create this folder. Opening the server.cfg with a program such as notepad++ will allow you to tweak game settings, such as Server Name, password, Map and Score Limit. The mapcycle text file, in the same folder, can be edited with the list of ships you want the server to cycle through and in what order.

Note: If you are only trying to join a server you may not need to open any ports depending on your setup. Any Dedicated Servers that are running will appear in the Join Server menu in-game under ‘Dedicated’ or ‘All’ tabs if you have the same version number of the game as the server. All servers appear in the Steam Server browser and they indicate which version of the game they are running. If you try to join a server with the wrong version number you will be taken to the main menu of the game.

Other additions

Aside from the Dedicated Servers, the team have been hard at work tweaking existing features and squashing those pesky little (and sometimes big) bugs. We have added new audio updates, such as footsteps (thus removing those silent ninja assassins). New facial animations have also been added, meaning characters will also no longer stare blankly into the depths of your soul!

If you are playing with bots, killing them while they are in a container will no longer cause the container to become unusable.

Loyalty Discount

If you own The Ship: Murder Party you will get 25% off The Ship: Remasted. This offer has been extended until the 30th of June.

Also make sure to follow us on twitter to keep updated! (@BlazingGriffin, @TheShipGame)

Happy Hunting!
