The classic mod the ship is reborn to the source engine. The Ship is primarily a multi player, online murder game with a unique set of game rules.

The Ship is owned by the mysterious Mr X and as one of many "lucky" recipients of a free ticket you arrive on board The Ship to find there's a catch to your luxury cruise.

You are coerced into a brutal Hunt to indulge Mr. X's fantasies, under threat of death for not only yourself, but also your family. Your only chance to save yourself and your family is to play the Hunt and win.

The ship has a bag full of very unique game play quirks many difficult to grasp without reading The Ships help log is here!

22 comments by INtense! on May 30th, 2012

The Indie Royale game bundle site returns with the Graduation Bundle, offering five fantastic independent games available at a bargain, fluctuating price - including cult Russian first-person classic The Void, an exclusive PC debut for 8-bit zombie shooter Dead Pixels, and multiple copies of multiplayer murder mystery The Ship. Plus you get early Steam Beta access to hot F2P action-RTS AirMech with an Indie Royale-exclusive in-game item code!

Headlining the bundle is Ice Pick Lodge's cult classic action-adventureThe Void, available for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. In this beautifully art-directed first-person game from the Russian creators of Pathologic, you must guide your lost soul through the Void, a space trapped between life and death. Use color as your health and ammo as you discover the dark secrets hidden by the beautiful Sisters and monstrous Brothers. PC Gamer UK called The Void, "An astounding world, and a flagship for the imagination and capability of independent game developers." Clash with golems, bloodthirsty predators and other spawn of the Void as you fight for your lost soul.

Next up is CSR Studios' retro zombie side-scrolling shooter Dead Pixels, available for the first time ever on Windows for Desura and DRM-free. In this conversion of the hit 8-bit style Xbox Live Indie Games title, a toxic waste spill has found its way into the water supply and the dead have risen from their graves. Take on waves of zombies as you make your way to salvation before it's too late. The city is never the same twice, so there's always something hiding around the corner! Featuring 22 types of zombies to blast, upgradable weapons and items, and all the free additions from the XBLIG version, such as the "Last Stand" and "The Solution" game modes, it's time to get your boomstick ready.

Also featured is Outerlight's first-person, multiplayer-centric nautical action game The Ship (now owned by Blazing Griffin), available for Windows on Steam only, and with each copy coming with two extra Steam keys to send to your friends! (Those copies each have one extra gift activation too!) Set in a 1920s cruise ship, players must murder their assigned target while at the same time avoiding the player hunting them. Be careful not to be spotted murdering your victim, or it's off to jail. Use all the weapons at your disposal, including crowbars, swords, flare guns, and many more. Featuring a unique bonus single-player story and an addictive online mode, Source Engine title The Ship is unlike any other first-person experience.

The bundle also includes The Odd Man Out's illuminating puzzle platformer 1000 Amps, available for Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free. As Plug, you are charged with restoring the expansive Amp-Tree-System. You light up whatever you touch, and Rock Paper Shotgun says of the game, "It’s witty in its minimalist design, its use of sound cues is exemplary, the jumping is pixel perfect, and the ability to put a smile on my face with every single completed room is a joyous thing." Solve puzzles and teleport to new areas to bring light to the whole world!

Rounding out the bundle is Monster Jail Games' eccentric Metroidvania-ish 8-bit platformer LaserCat, available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Explore the castle of the evil Wizzord, as you search for the keys littered throughout the world. Featuring wacky trivia questions and a little cat ghost left behind every time you die, LaserCat has an uncommonly good sense of humor, with cues taken from games old (Jet Set Willy) and new (VVVVVV).


Included in the bundle is a special exclusive bonus, a Steam Beta key to hot F2P action-RTS AirMech with Indie Royale-only in-game item code - the Graduation Cap (+5% persistent XP)! NOTE: The Graduation Cap is redeemable in-game by clicking on "Store" and then "Codes." The much-hyped AirMech is in closed beta on Steam right now, making these codes very hard to come by, so infinite thanks to Carbon Games for partnering with us to offer these keys to all our valued customers. (And we'll be unlocking one more game for all buyers during the bundle itself - watch our social media feeds for info!)

Update - Bonus Game Unlocked! As if one bonus game wasn't enough, here's another one: Stolen Couch Games' entertaining puzzler Ichi, which is available for PC and Mac on Desura and DRM-Free. What started out as a challenge for Jay van Hutten to develop a puzzle game evolved into a seemingly simple one-button game that has 50 brain-twisting puzzles that require everything from teleporting to breaking blocks. Plus it has a level editor that can be used to create levels and share them across the globe.

Finally, those who pay $7 USD or their currency equivalent during the Graduation Bundle get Cheap Dinosaurs' self-titled album in .FLAC and HQ .MP3 - the long-awaited first official release from the chiptune prog rockers, and normally a $6 value on its own.


More information on the Graduation Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. And a final reminder - the more buyers, the more the price will increase, unless kind buyers drop the price for everyone else, so hop on and buy soon to avoid disappointment!

Cool game, a little sims like FPS experience though not enough demanding on the needs levels. I enjoyed the single player campaign while it lasted.
