First Class Trouble Review
Posted: 2 weeks ago, last updated 3 days ago.
Of the six players working together to shut down the rogue A.I. on a failing luxury space cruise-liner, two are on the side of the A.I. Which ever side you are on you explore the ship, performing tasks and interacting with other players.
The goal for the humans is to shut down the Central Artificial Intelligence Network. The goal for the traitor players is to stop the humans doing this without being discovered. As this unfolds, players collect information about each other to deduce who to trust and who to avoid. Collaborations, pacts and double-crossing abound as you work with your fellow residents to eliminate the suspected Personoids.
As you explore the ship there are new ways to eliminate both friend and foe in each level. Environmental hazards such as fires, bad wiring and poorly hanging chandeliers can all be used to get rid of your fellow passengers when you find it convenient.
It's a game about talking as much as violence. The social deduction is enhanced with interactions through in-game proximity based voice chat where only those nearby can hear what's being said. There's also in-game text chat or just responding with emotes.
