The Ship: Full Steam ahead will hit Kickstarter UK when the service goes live on October 31st. Developed by Scottish studio Blazing Griffin, it’s the sequel to Outerlight’s The Ship: Murder Party – which also served as the basis for Ubisoft’s digital release Bloody Good Time. Get more details below.
The Kickstarter UK project will go live from October 31st and will accept pledges then. Over at the Blazing Griffin blog, the studio commented on the project, “The crowdfunding for Full Steam Ahead is launching on the first day Kickstarter will be available in the United Kingdom. As a UK based company this makes the fundraising process far easier for us.”
“Full Steam Ahead’s Kickstarter will be available through the original (American) Kickstarter page, as well as the UK one. The donation amounts may be in pounds sterling, rather than dollars, but apart from that simple fact, anyone across the world can still donate – part of the beauty of the Kickstarter crowdfunding model.”
“We hope you’ll all join as on the voyage and help us discover new ways to bump each other off.”
The Ship sees players as passengers on board a luxurious cruise liner, and are tasked with killing each other off. The catch is they can act like NPCs to mingle with the ship’s guests, and use that to get closer to their target, giving them a chance to murder them. It’s rather smart.
