Indie developer Blazing Griffin has announced to disappointed players that The Ship: Remasted, which was to be released today, has been delayed to February 22nd.
The Ship: Remasted is a remake of The Ship: Murder Party, which was released back in 2006. Players find themselves on a 1920's cruise ship.where each player is given the name of another player whom they must off, before being killed themselves by their unknown stalker. However, the murders must be made where no one can see with improvised weapons or they'll be tossed in the brig.
The issue with The Ship: Remasted is that the servers are on the fritz. "This service is isn't entirely functional right now as there are bandwidth limitations (with Unity Cloud Services) meaning that games are capped at 4 players (otherwise they would just time out quickly).," explained developer Blazing Griffin. "We're discussing this with Unity just now and hope to have this cap increased soon. However, it will mean that our test group can play online matches without the need for 3rd party services and we're also hoping to get some good feedback on this."
Gamers who backed thereceived keys to engage in closed beta tests on the game, along with The Ship fans who signed up in November and December to test the game.
