There has been a murder on the high seas, and it is up to the passengers to exercise. Just don’t try to solve the case – you’re the new widow with blood on her hands trying to keep no one from finding out.
Announced and released this afternoon, Overboard! is a nautical murder mystery of Heaven & # 39; s Vault and Inkle, the developer of 80 Days. As a murderer of your beloved husband, you will have to go through your steps, remove any trace of your involvement, and set up someone to blame the place.
All of this happens in what Inkle calls a "next-generation visual novel." You’ve limited the time to explore this open ship, interacting with passengers and crew traveling independently, keeping up to date where you’ve been and what they’ve seen.
"Go where you want, when you want. But the other characters are watching and they won't forget what they see."
In eight hours of play (30-45 minutes in real time), you will forge alliances, trick passengers, and perhaps commit a second assassination attack to escape the first.
You’ll be racing again and again, discovering the perfect way to escape murder. The idea that Inkle’s narrative ribs frame a race-based investigation is certainly very intriguing, and fortunately you can try it right now. Overboard! has come out today Steam i GOG for $ 13.71 / £ 9.68.
