Description

JULY, 1935. A MURDER HAS BEEN COMMITTED aboard the SS Hook, eight hours out from New York. Only one problem: you did it. Can you get away with murder? GAMEPLAY Blackmail a spy. Fall in love.

There are clues, evidence, suspects, accusations, secrets and lies. You’ll need all your cunning, coercion and charisma to ensure that someone else takes the fall.

Superb Game; Horribly Optimized
Jeratain on 2021-06-17
This is - like all Inkle games - an extremely well-written game with a simple premise: get away with murder on a ship. For those unfamiliar with Inkle games, this is like a choose your own adventure with great depth. The dialogue feels natural; the graphics are clean and snappy; the sound is minimal and appropriate. Most importantly, the replayability and variety of choices is vast. The challenge is quite high, as you’re dealing with a large variety of dialogue options coupled with a time crunch to meet your goals. As you take an action, time passes. Each character is on a different part of the ship at a different time of day, so you need to be strategic about what you want to say / do / when you want to go to each section. Also with each replay, you learn something new and unlock new objectives. This adds to the challenge. I’d give it 5 stars if the game was better optimized on iOS. It plays great and is snappy, but unfortunately the battery drains very quickly and my device gets hot on my iPhone 12 Pro. Other than that, another slam dunk from Inkle that I’ll be sinking hours into.
Another Inkle Hit

Inkle does it again!

Another great game from Inkle, this time clearly inspired by “The Last Express”, an interactive fiction classic. Overboard! is smart, fast, and intricate in great ways. Each playthrough goes quickly and reveals more and more, drawing you right back in. Everyone should play, and interact fiction nerds should study it.
Incredible!

This game is great! The music, the voice acting, the dialogue, the old glamor vibes! They really captured the atmosphere well in this little game. I think the game design is really unique too, and is something that I’ve never seen any other game do. Keep it up, Inkle!
I’m enjoying it, but...
Pendemonium on 2021-06-17
... in about 10-15 minutes of playing my phone got very hot, my battery dropped about 20%, and I had to stop. But I was really enjoying it until then, and hope they get the heating problem sorted out in an update. I played on an iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Love it!

But in response to someone else’s comment, my phone also gets very hot while playing this game. No other app I use makes my phone heat up at all. Not sure what that’s about. Otherwise, it’s very well done and very replayable.
Love it!

Tons of fun to play and I genuinely have fun on each replay. I hope the devs consider making it compliant with voice-over so that nonsighted people can play it as well, as my partner had a ton of fun when I read aloud to her.
Kill All Sinners?
bananellie on 2021-06-17
I REALLY adore this game, but I’ve tried it about 10 times now and cannot kill everyone? Is there a walkthrough on how to do this? Idk! But, all-in-all this is an amazing game.
Inkle Is The Best!

This is a jolly fun game I say. The trick is to keep playing and try every option. You will be amazed at all the fun twists and turns that unfold!
Battery Drain

Looks like a great game but the battery drain is intense. Hoping that gets fixed and I’d love to play again once it’s taken care of.
