The Ship 2 cruising to Kickstarter on Halloween

Remember The Ship? You know, the innovative cruise ship-based multiplayer murder game that entertained us back in 2006? It went on to spawn a Hollywood-themed follow-up, Bloody Good Time, and arguably inspired the multiplayer bits of the recent Assassin's Creeds. We thought it had been hit by an iceberg, along (sadly) with developers Outerlight but it turns out The Ship 2 is unexpectedly plotting a course for Kickstarter.

Bloody Good Time announced

Bloody Good Time is a multiplayer shooter from Outerlight Studios (they made The Ship) that'll be trundling onto Steam later on in the year. You're an actor competing for a part in a horror film. You compete by murdering other actors for the part. While that's nothing like how real actors audition, it's a lot like games journalism.
