Ahoy Hunters!

Sailing into port is a new update for The Ship: Remasted, with a cargo hold full of anticipated features. We have traps! There is breakable glass! Did someone say a chat function? And wait, is that the S S Connemara?

A whole host of deadly new features are present in this build:

+ SS Connemara: The Connemara refurbishment has been completed and has sailed into port. Check out that sleek 1920s style, are those new paintings in the gallery? …wait is that a Picasso? You’ll notice the ship has been renovated to fulfil your every need, whether it’s playing pool in the games room, leisurely imbibing in the Aquila Bar or embedding an axe into your quarry’s head in the luxurious environs of the Cassiopeia Restaurant. Check to make sure every rivet is where it is supposed to be, the ship’s dangerous enough without having to worry about a lifeboat falling on your head…

+ Traps: Speaking of lifeboats falling on your head, all the ships have got even more dangerous with both old and new environmental traps! Eliminate your quarry in even more style with freezer, steam and lifeboat traps. See if you can eliminate your quarry with all the new ones!

+ Breakable Glass: Is your quarry just out of reach in the Orion Lounge? Is that pesky glass window stopping you from taking them out? Well not anymore! All the windows have been installed with breakable glass, now there really is nowhere to hide.

+ New weapons: We’ve added the Syringe and Flare Guns back into the ship, giving you even more ways to kill your quarry. There is still some polishing to be done on these weapons and the vfx but we wanted to get them in your hands as soon as possible!

+ Chat: We’ve added a simple text chat function into The Ship, now if you’re feeling brave you can taunt your hunter or let your quarry know you’re coming for them! Use T to bring up the chat.

If you spot any out of place rivets, bulletproof glass or non-functioning traps be sure to let us know on the Steam forums!

Bon Voyage!
