Hunters of The Northwest Passage

by PsySal - Competition Entry

You are charged by Henry V with finding the Northwest Passage.

Good. Freaking. Luck.

I have no idea if this is beatable, and I haven't tested the storm system.

Arrows navigate the menu, C selects, X backs out (if you can).

In the end I executed the captain and skiper.

crackerblocks says ...

I shackled my whole crew and they still managed to murder each other :(

refrag says ...

Great fun. :)

Wiering says ...

Nice user interface

TenjouUtena says ...

Nice little concept! I like it, the menu system is unique in this compo, and allows you to present a nice little story.

Ashera says ...

I liked this even though it seemed like an impossible task. My biggest annoyance in the interface was that pressing X with a crew member selected backed you out to the main menu, not the crew list. Also, I can't seem to find where it shows your gold.
I wish you could choose what supplies to buy at the beginning.

Doches says ...

Absolutely delicious. A tad repetitive, though the variety and (glorious!) humor in the crews' complaints did a lot to keep me engaged. "There are no blankets," he complained. "Imagine that!"

dertom says ...

Hehe,...nice! Actually I needed sometime to have a look for the game but than it was nice! A bit sad how hard I could be when "executing" someone :(! NO MERCY :D

Cosr says ...

One by one my entire crew killed themselves...
A nifty game and a good use of the theme. It could get a tad dull at times though.

SonnyBone says ...

This was pretty rad. Any game that lets you kill and whip your employees gets bonus points.

Hempuli says ...

It was a tad too complex for my simple mind. You managed to create a lot of features in just 48 hours!

Draknek says ...

I deserted my own ship! Wasn't expecting that...

Asking "how fares thee" never seems to work.

The mechanics are a bit non-obvious, but that's part of the fun. Like, why does making someone the skip make them sad and angry?

cptalbertwesker says ...

An amazing achievement for the competition, a few bugs here and there but a great use of the theme, even if all my crew ended up killing themselves!

Gilvado says ...

Neat idea, but I found it pretty difficult to really get my head around what I needed to do to play well.
