As the Ferryman, it's your duty to deliver goods and supplies to the denizens of the sea. It isn't an easy job, but it needs doing. The Keepers depend on you, so you'd better get to it. Just remember - the further you stray from the shore, the rougher yet the seas become.


Move with the [arrow keys]. Grab, throw, interact, and repair with [Z]. Keep your engine fueled. Patch up holes in your ship's hull. Listen closely. Accept that you won't be alone.


Originally made over a period of three days for Ludum Dare 50 with the theme "delay the inevitable." We spent a couple more days afterwards finishing it up.


Note: If you experience any strange lag on Chrome, try enabling hardware acceleration.

WOAH THIS IS SO GOOD THE GRAPHISM ARE CHEF KISS

nice.

LE CONCEPT EST SYMPAS LEGEREMENT REPETITIF MAIS LE GRAPHISME EST AGREABLE ET on s'amuse alors c'est cool

idk why but my ship keeps sinking at level 8, I love the art style and how simple yet complex the games mechanics are, however, it does get inda repetitive

edit: nvm, it was just cuthulu

I liked the game overall, i had to refresh the tab over and over again because the game kept going black for me I have a pretty good laptop so idk

the gameplay is alright it becomes pretty repetitive also the instructions are a bit confusing so i had to restart a few runs to fully understand it

[edit] found a visual bug, the textures would go in and out invisible and the ladder ascending and descending animation was completely gone

its an alright game
