The Ship traditional first and third person gameplay with a Sims-style day-to-day needs system. You're on board a Ship to play a deadly cat-and-mouse game. Each player is given the name of one of the other contestants on-board and must hunt them down and kill them with any weapon they can find. You must do this while avoiding capture by security, or being killed by the person hunting you.
Depending on the game mode, the winner is either the last hunter alive or the one with the most money in his bank account.
