    Hey all,

    Just wanted to put a shout out for the forthcoming sequel to The Ship, namely, "Bloody Good Time" on Xbox Live.

    As one of the team that worked on it but subsequently lost their job after much dubious shenanigans from the publisher (don't take just my word for it), even though we all lost our jobs and your buying the game would ultimately support the evil conglomerate publisher nasties, it would also give us an immense deal of satisfaction to see you guys getting to play and hopefully enjoy it.

    Obviously if it gets totally panned by the reviewers then feel free to ignore this request, but I for one am confident it'll at the very least provide some amusing and refreshing gameplay. All I ask is that you put it on your watch list and when it's out, hopefully the game will talk for itself.

    Then when you've finished playing it, fire-bomb Ubisoft.

    Disclaimer: Don't really do that - just imagine doing it.

    I've always fancied trying out 'The Ship' after the hilarious coverage it received on Consolevania (Videogaiden, I can't remember which). To be honest I had no idea it was being brought to XBLA, awesome news, really really sorry to hear about the demise of the studio though, that really sucks :(

    No, it was this.

    The multiplayer was excellent fun.

    Damn, I knew I should have used the internet instead of my (obviously wrong) memory.

    Oh scratch that.

    How did this sneak by me? I knew that they were developing a ship sequel but I didn't know when it was coming out. Went looking for details a few months ago and nothing... Now its coming out in a week!? on PC and XBLA!

    Tax rebate is getting spent on this and a few other games then :) + Steam has much much better commission rates than boxed retail so here's hoping it re-kindles the studio.

    Great to see interest in this. Hope you guys'll enjoy it. Even if Outerlight doesn't get revived from it, at least I hope it'll give Chris the motivation to move on and start a new project. I for one am a little bored of run-of-the-mill shooters or racing games, so any guy who's prepared to take a chance on something a little different, stands very highly in my estimation.

    Just had a little bash on 'The Ship' It's aged quite well actually. It's still very fun and engaging, shame the number of people playing it has dropped to almost zero. Will be good to see a revival of this game play. Let me pre-purchase damn it!

    It was supposed to be this week but that Major Nelson twitted that it wasn't confirmed for this week but gave no other date - so, yeah.
    Wanted to pick it up for the 800MSP October rebate deal, but looks like it'll be too late now.

    It's up now, if Major Nelson's last Tweet is to be believed.

    Hmm, seems very interesting and different! I like! Will need to get my head around it. SO far I've picked up a dizzy sheep and got chased by security guards. Bah!

    Haha yeah recommend playing a bit on single player to get the hang of it. And read the instructions! Sadly I fear many online gamers won't bother and it'll become a deathmatch fest, which'll totally ruin it.
  • Deleted user 28 October 2010 16:57:38
    I like MP games that aren't just about killing or racing - a bit of stealthy/sneaky never goes amiss, especially with disguises and traps....

    I just bought this, and then realised that my Gold account had expired.
    Am I completely fucked?
