Welcome to Murderous Pursuits, a multiplayer stealth-em-up of aristocratic proportions. In this delightful game, your host, Mr X, cordially invites you and up to seven other players to stab the living daylights out of each other.
Set on board a Victorian-era ship, that can fly – it’s ‘the time travel’, don’t you know – you get to play in one of several ship-board locations and must identify and kill another player amongst the passengers, without drawing too much attention to yourself or having the guards witnessing the diabolical deed. What gratification! But if this seems too refined for your gentile tastes, you must do so while evading your own murderous hunters. The swines!
To survive, you’ll have to act like an unassuming passenger and avoid revealing yourself, locate high-scoring weapons, and stalk and kill your targets in a manner that befits your station as an arch villain.
In short, this is a game of kill or be killed. To win, you’ll have to stealth-it-up as an expert assassin and outplay your odious adversaries. Those who come a close second will simply be stabbed in the codlings, rolled up in a carpet bag, and dumped in the River Thames.
Them’s the rules.
