Full Steam Ahead becomes the Number 1 Greenlight Concept
Some Assembly Required - Full Steam Ahead, Kickstarter and Beyond
Description
Released in 2006 to public and critical acclaim, The Ship: Murder Party is a first-person-shooter / stealth-action game, played out on a variety of 1920’s ships. To win, you have to kill your assigned quarry without on-board security and other passengers witnessing your nefarious crime. At the same time you must evade your own pursuer, while managing ‘needs’ for things like companionship, eating, sleeping and cleanliness. Get caught napping and you’re not going to survive very long…

Blazing Griffin is now putting together a sequel to The Ship, called The Ship: Full Steam Ahead.

This new game will continue in the same vein as its revolutionary predecessor, creating a richly detailed, uniquely engaging FPS, in which stealth and subterfuge are as important as gung-ho action. We’ll be transplanting the original Ship gameplay into a dramatic, steampunk environment packed full of Victoriana, while modular updates and Open Development -- where you can influence what we’re building as we’re building it – will ensure Full Steam Ahead evolves in the most exciting way.

  • Lure your quarry into a quiet corner and kill them before they kill you, or bludgeon them messily and run for it.
  • Commandeer the best weapon for dispatching your quarry, from umbrellas and golf clubs, to scalpels and firearms. Improvise in the heat of the moment. Locate items critical to your survival.
  • Evade on-board security, including guards and monitoring equipment, as well as the hue-and-cry of other passengers. Avoid being spotted mid-murder and being banged up in the brig.
  • Make meaningful gameplay decisions as you elude your pursuer and hunt down your quarry in the bowels of the ship. Take advantage of your quarry’s needs, but neglect your own at your peril. Make use of special locations that offer medical repair or the advances of early Victorian psychiatry…
  • Learn your world, from the devious locations, routes and security, to hidden passages, environmental traps, and extra special ways of murdering your quarry. Improvise, adapt, overcome.
  • Richly customise your character. Dress to accentuate your individual mood or style; or change your clothes on a regular basis, throwing your pursuer off your trail while remaining anonymous to your quarry.
  • Interact with a living ecosystem of industrious crew and unsuspecting passengers, where the inhabitants have their own routines and needs which can impact your gameplay experience, for good or for ill.
  • Experience sumptuous graphics and haunting music, on-board a vividly realised, luxury liner. Explore a richly detailed and immersive world of luxurious, Victorian steampunk.


We’re now on Kickstarter. Spread the word!

Kick starter sucks everyone knows that now a days. This is why they invented Greenlight for games like this to get on steam and the community to enjoy.
