The Ship, a massively mysterious thriller (MMT) from Outerlight Ltd, is scheduled to arrive in July via Steam, Valve's electronic distribution platform.
Outerlight is a UK-based studio that began as a Half-Life MOD team. Momentum from their MOD work spurred the evolution of a fully funded professional studio.
The Ship, Outerlight's first commercial product, was created with Source, the same game engine technology Valve developed for Half-Life 2.
Set onboard a 1920's luxury liner, Mr X, the Ship's owner has "invited" you to a mysterious game of hunt and hunted, as players must secretly track and extinguish specified passengers while avoiding similar fate.
"With the inclusion of a player needs system, plus elements of exploration and stealth gameplay, The Ship is very different than other first person titles," said Chris Peck, Outerlight's Managing Director. "We're delighted to debut via Steam, and have plans for expanding upon The Ship's unique multiplayer gaming with updates and new content after launch."
The Ship will also head to retail outlets in September. For more information, please visit http://www.steampowered.com
