Hunt your friends in Murderous Pursuits, today’s Steam giveaway

It's hard to get a niche multiplayer game going, especially one that requires players to behave themselves. That's probably why Murderous Pursuits, latest backstab 'em up from Blazing Griffin (makers of The Ship) is free on Steam right now. Not just a free weekend (which it had done previously), but a 'grab now, keep it forever' deal. As with The Ship, it's a game of…

Murderous Pursuits adds more ways to pursue murderers for a free weekend

I want to tell everyone to buy Murderous Pursuits whenever I write about it, but I can't. It's a quietly brilliant hunt 'n' be hunted multiplayer game in the vein of Assassin's Creed multiplayer, from the same people who made The Ship: Remasted. The problem is that by 'quietly' I mean 'most of the time there aren't enough people playing to fill a server'. Huzzah…

Murderous Pursuits has slunk out of the shadows

That's a misleading headline. It'd have been more accurate to say Murderous Pursuits has fooled you into thinking it's not a threat, discarded its AI disguise and stabbed you in the belly with a sabre. It'd be more accurate still to say its a multiplayer assassination game about hunting and being hunted from The Ship: Remasted devs, and that it just came out. I've already…

Chase Murderous Pursuits in its open beta this weekend

"This is what I’ve always wanted Assassin’s Creed multiplayer to be", said I in a preview of Murderous Pursuits. It's a game about hunting and being hunted by Ship: Remasted devs Blazing Griffin, and if you boot up the free open beta this weekend that'll be doubly true: the devs say they'll be lurking around, waiting to hit you in the back of the head…

Feature: Ship shape

Murderous Pursuits is the best version of Assassin’s Creed multiplayer

Murderous Pursuits is The Ship: Remasted crew’s latest stab at a multiplayer assassination game, due out next month. Like in previous Ship games, you’re given a target to hunt while another player hunts you. Unlike previous Ship games, you're on a flying boat packed with alternate reality Victorian time-travellers. The real difference, though, lies in how the devs have fully embraced the joys of NPCamoflauge:…

Murderous Pursuits is the next multiplayer assassination game from The Ship: Remasted devs

Oooh, now this is intriguing - The Ship: Remasted devs Blazing Griffin are taking another stab at their 'murder party' formula. Today they announced Murderous Pursuits, a game about hunting (and being hunted by) other players. You have to sneak up on your quarry by pretending to be one of the AI characters milling around, just like in the old Assassin's Creed multiplayer modes but…

Clinton And Trump Join The Ship’s Murder Party

The Ship: Remasted [official site] has added political figures including Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and I don't know if I have enough tension-defusing "little bit of politics" Ben Elton riffing in me to survive much longer in the current political climate. Clinton and Trump can now lark around on a luxury cruise ship, trying to smash in each other's heads in with tennis rackets…

The Ship: Remasted Delayed To Add Online Multiplayer

Oh, it's breaking my heart. I can see you right now, by your screen with your steamer trunk packed and your little sailor hat atop your little head, waiting patiently for The Ship: Remasted [official site] to launch into Early Access. It should've been here at 2pm, shouldn't it? Reader dear, I'm sorry but you'll have to wait another week. Developers Blazing Griffin have decided…

The Ship: Remasted Sailing To Early Access In February

For those who've not heard of The Ship and have romantic visions of sailing the seven seas, I'll quickly state that it's a game about murder. To expand a little, it's a multiplayer FPS about passengers aboard a cruise ship trying to have a pleasant holiday and stealthily off their target - perhaps catching them unaware while they have a waz. I asked you for…

Murder Cruise: The Ship HD Remake Announced

A cursed ship sails the cyberseas. Many who see it fall desperately in love, longing to walk its decks and stealthily murder its other passengers so they can have the ship all to themselves. They follow rituals to summon the ship and they try to create replicas, but their love is doomed. This ship is The Ship, and it is returning once more as The…

FTLike: Fleet-Based Space Strategy/Roguelite Distant Star

FTL's great and all, but just one ship? That's not really the Battlestar Galactica fantasy, is it? You want a whole bunch of spacecraft in there, wincing whenever you lose one, thinking about what percentage of your race's population is now left alive, then saying something meaningful but uncomfortably militaristic in a voice that sounds like a road being resurfaced. Distant Star: Unnecessary Subtitle (oh…

The Ship Sequel Sets Sail On Kickstarter

Fun fact: RPS is actually operated in its fundane day-to-day fashion entirely from the crowded deck of an upscale 1920s cruise liner. While jovially spinning our thoughts into the most eloquent of wordshapes, Jim, John, Alec, Adam, and I are constantly engaged in a methodical hunt for one other. We like to think that the ever-present threat of death keeps our writing sharp. But finally,…

Buy One Ship, Get Two Free

Bargain King Lewie Procter alerts me to new that the new owners of Half-Life mod-gone-pro The Ship are offering a Christmas present to existing owners of the comedy assassination game. And yes, they do openly admit it's also "a transparent attempt at some shameless marketing", which makes it an even easier pill to swallow. Basically, if you've bought (or decide to buy) The Ship at…
