About Ship of Fools

About this game

Ship of Fools is a seafaring roguelite co-op game where you play the Fools, the only creatures fool enough to brave the sea. The Great Lighthouse that once protected the Archipelago is broken and a storm of malice and corruption is coming.

Together, you and your ship mate will jump aboard The Stormstrider and make your voyage across the sea. Man the cannons, ready your sails and protect your ship from sea monsters over multiple runs. It’s up to you to defend your home from the almighty Aquapocalypse.

In a clamshell, Ship of Fools is a game about blasting away your seaborne foes with mighty cannons as you defend your ship. Inspired by modern classic roguelites and built for co-op, you’ll want to bring your first mate on deck and enjoy oarsome combat as you unlock new trinkets and artifacts to help you save the world from catastrophe.

Designed for co-op play, frantic combat encounters with the horrifying creatures of the storm will test your teamwork. Work together to defend and repair the ship, combine item effects in powerful combos and make sure you have your shipmate’s back if you don’t want to become fish food.

Uncover lost treasures and remote shops on the islands of the Archipelago, but plan your moves carefully! As you chart your way through the sector, the Everlasting Storm shifts and changes, blocking your paths with its fury. You’ll need to adjust your course in reaction to storm movements and decide when you can brave a trip to discover what lurks inside the storm.

Man your ship as a solo sailor and fight your way through dangerous waters and keep the glory for yourself, Ship of Fools offers solo play as well as multiplayer. As they sing in old sailor songs: it’s sometimes better to have no crew than a dysfunctional one!

With many Fools to play with, unique items to find and unlock, combat encounters to fight in and many islands to visit, each run will bring something new to your voyage. Bolster your strength each time, ready to defeat the monsters of the deep sea.

  • Frantic nautical combat with another shipmate in co-op or as a solo sailor

Ship of Fools is a crazy fun game with one major flaw: it is clearly designed as a co-op game for two people. If you play solo you are given an AI partner that kinda of works out at first but eventually the levels are more demanding and the AI dude cannot keep up anymore. You will struggle and eventually fail. If you do have a friend to play with, you are very, VERY dependent on a good connection. Your run will be lost if your connection fails or one of you has to leave early. You cannot continue alone or pick it up again later. Other than this issue, the game is great! the enemies are creative and different, there is almost constant chaos and i love the visual style of the game.

Excellent 2 players game, even with kids. Quick action, not too much dialog and enough unlock that always made us want do an other run. Would have been perfect if more than 2 players was allowed.

It's a very funny game, with cute and dumb characters. Art style is really nice and the roguelite feel to it is very well adopted.
