About this game

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?

***** 5 stars from The Guardian, Adventure Gamers, Softpedia

GAMEPLAY

Blackmail a spy. Fall in love. Murder a rival. Cheat at cards. Drug a witness. Lie, befriend, betray, console, sneak, seduce, steal, borrow, pray, eavesdrop, kill...

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.

DYNAMIC NARRATIVE CLOCKWORK

* Next-gen visual novel: go where you want, when you want, and say what you want
* Simulated story-world: other characters move and act independently, remember everything they see and hear - and everything you do
* Every minute counts: you have eight hours to escape justice. Time is always ticking!
* Who can you trust? Some characters are friendly, and some are out to get you. Who will you befriend? Who will you betray?

Built using the award-winning ink narrative engine, Overboard!'s narrative twists itself around every choice you make.

Play once for a thrill, or multiple times to uncover all the secrets and achieve an ideal ending.

HIGHLY REPLAYABLE

One play-through lasts about 30 - 45 minutes, but achieving the perfect crime run will take a lot longer...

A great game for a phone, intended to be replayed many times to piece together as a player more than your character would know in a single run. It runs REALLY hot on my OnePlus 7 Pro for some reason though - there's no game options or android options I can find to make my phone try less hard. It zonks my battery, makes my phone hard to hold, and makes me a little concerned; sometimes I lock it and let it rest a bit.

I've had a blast with this game and hooked a few of my friends on it as well. This is a great way to kill time... and possibly other passengers. Gameplay for each round depends on your choices: ranging from 5 minutes to half an jour. Each run timing is key, as our snarky protag tries to get away with murder and get rich, a real two birds one stone situation. Replay potential is rather high, as your choices and the order with which you take them can have quite drastic changes to the outcome.

Just like other inkle games, it's a fun puzzle to pick apart and replay, and the writing is great. A reverse murder-mystery is a brilliant concept. But I was disappointed with the short length of the game - I seem to have seen exhausted pretty much every option and completed all the tasks within a few hours, compared to 80 Days which held lots of surprises even after weeks of play.
