The Ship from Outerlight

Outerlight's anticipated unique murder mystery 'The Ship' is available for download from 11th – via the Steam network!

PC CD-ROM Download from 11/07/2006 Single and Multiplayer Welcome aboard The Ship, a new unique murder-mystery game for the PC. But as one of many "lucky" recipients of a free ticket, you arrive on board to find there's a catch to your luxury cruise Set on a series of luxury, art deco cruise ships built by 'Mr X', this devilish game challenges you to kill or be killed. The rules of the hunt are simple: Each of you is given the name of one of the other contestants on board, and you must Hunt them down and kill them with any weapon you can find. But as well as having someone to Hunt, you have another player hunting you, so keep looking over your shoulder if you want to stay alive! Featuring great graphics, unusual characters and a unique theme, The Ship offers a new twist to online gaming. The many multiplayer modes include Hunt, Elimination, Duel and Deathmatch, for 8 - 16 players (and up to 32 players on the larger maps.) Weapons on board are many and varied. If you can pick up an object, you can probably also use it as a weapon! Bludgeoning; hammers to mannequin arms and tennis rackets. Stabbing; knives, katanas, letter openers and other stabbing weapons. Firearms; Harder to find but some of the crew and passengers do have firearms on board, if you can find the armoury you'll find a host of weapons at your disposal. Poison; The doctor's office is often a good place to look. Traps & Triggers; Some locations on board are quite lethal; try the freezer or the sauna. Or why not drop a lifeboat or a chandelier on their head? If you find yourself being followed, lose your hunter in the corridors and rooms of the Ship, use the security guards and cameras to protect you, or lure them into a quiet corner and kill them before they kill you...attack is the best form of defence after all! The ship is available to pre-order now and download from 11th July via the Steam network, to reserve your copy simply visit:- www.theshiponline.com For more information, or pre-view code top play the game, contact Stuart at Way to Blue; 020 7749 8444 stuart@waytoblue.com
