The Ship: Full Steam Ahead is a continuation of the well-received first person online shooter The Ship. The production was created by a new developer – Blazing Griffin studio with several smaller titles. In search of funds to complete the game, the authors used the Kickstarter platform.
In The Ship: Full Steam Ahead we move on to the colonial period in British history to become rival heroes. Victorian realities are seasoned with a pinch of steampunk style. They provide a background for unusual battles – the struggling characters move among the regular “inhabitants” of maps, led by the artificial intelligence. The winner is the person who unnoticeably eliminates the other participants.
Original rules will make The Ship not just a “shooter”, but rather tactical “steps”. The point is that killing an opponent requires recognizing him and feeling the moment when he can be attacked. It is also important to choose the right “crime tool”. Another factor influencing play are the needs described by the characters – they have to eat, rest, or take care of hygiene. Too reckless players may, for example, fall asleep at the wrong moment or, if detected, be imprisoned.
For Full Steam Ahead, the developer has developed a number of new maps, characters, items, weapons and interactive objects that make it easy to hide from opponents’ attacks. The essence of the gameplay remains the same as in The Ship \- targeting, approaching and eliminating the opponent requires cunning, attention and reflex. The game uses a new graphical engine.
