About The 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?

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...
