Hope Adrift features an odd mixture of fishing, shooting, horror and murder mystery as you attempt to shoot mechanical fish and use their parts to fix your ship, while also figuring out who killed one of your crew.
In Hope Adrift you are the captain of a ship that is hopelessly adrift after its engine exploded, killing a crewmate who was standing nearby. You’re pretty sure the engine was sabotaged on purpose by one of the crew, and to make matters worse, there’s a big storm rolling in over the horizon. Thankfully one of the crew has rigged up a device that can attract the mechanical fish swimming in the waters below, and you might be able to shoot them and use their parts to fix the engine.
To attract the mechanical fish you must drop a lure, wait until there are a few of them circling it and then explode it to make them come up to the surface. When they jump out of the water to attack your ship you then have to shoot them to collect their parts. You have to be careful though – if the fish reach the crewmate you’ve selected to be the gunner then they will permanently die and you’ll have to select another one of the crew to man the gun. While all this is going on you can also call different members of the crew up to talk to you and question them to figure out who the saboteur/murderer is.
It does get a bit grindy in the later stages, but it’s a fun game and its blend of deep sea fishing and murder mystery works surprisingly well. The only issue being that if the wrong crewmates die then you may never get to the bottom of who the murderer is. See if you can survive and solve this high sea murder mystery!
