Maddie is looking forward to spending the summer before she begins college working with her best friend, Bridgette, as crew on the luxury cruise ship M.S. Andromache.

So what if its maiden voyage is to retrace the route of its ill-fated sister ship, the S.S. Cassandra, which disappeared inside the perilous Bermuda Triangle almost 100 years before? The media will hype anything for a story and the liner company is only too happy for the extra publicity.

But when things aboard ship start to go awry, Maddie soon realises she’ll have more to deal with than demanding passengers and annoying co-workers. Could she be the key to changing events set in motion almost a century ago, or will the mystery of the Devil’s Triangle claim her too?

Hi, can you repost a walkthrough please ?

Sorry about your wait. I am not sure where the first one has gone, so I wrote another.

Please find it here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BXMhPxk7K52AR7ovnk1bMox7GnhsiXi7KOKNe4Sd1N8/...

Many thanks

thanks to you for the walkthrough

Hello, Tigeratiwich

The last CG for the Friendship ending is the same one as this one here  https://blackcrosstaylor.itch.io/dat/devlog/22341/devil-and-the-deep-blue-sea-up...  The Bridgette romance CG ending looks different.

If you would like a specific ending and are having trouble getting it for whatever reason, I can post you a brief walkthrough, if you would like?

wow I didn' know and yes I would love to plz give me walkthrougj

No problem. Here is a google doc showing the point value of decisions.

Just got to the part with the discussion with Connor (no idea whose route I'm on...) and the night before when we're going to try and speak with the captain about the mysterious happenings, when I got this error:

Trying to ignore the error brings me back to the start menu and quitting and restarting doesn't seem to do anything either, any ideas?


I deleted the demo from my computer so this should be the full version as far as I can tell.

Hello, NiKaWo

I'm very sorry you found a bug. 

I know what the problem should be from the information you provided, but going through the code and playtesting it this morning have failed to replicate it or find any problems in the script. 

At my first attempt at a solution, I've rebuilt the game and re-uploaded it. Please can you download it again and see if you still get the error? 

(It may be required that you play from the beginning, if the game is having trouble finding a variable I have defined, so apologies for that.)

If you do still get the error, please can you email me at support@blackcross-taylor.com so I can send you  a copy of the game with all the developer options turned back on and we can gather more information to fix the issue. 

Will do, thanks so much for your help!

No problem, please let me know how it goes - I don't want to leave you with a game that doesn't work.

I will!  Thanks again :)

Looks like it's all working now, thanks so much!!

Ah, I am glad to hear that. I hope you enjoy the rest of the game.

Got about 5 minutes through the demo before I made up my mind to buy it.  The writing is excellent, and the character art (particularly Bridgette and MC) is adorable.  

Am looking forward to playing it after work tomorrow or this weekend, and for any future games of yours.

Hello, NiKaWo

Thank you for the purchase and your kind words (I'll pass your compliments on the the artist too) - I really hope you enjoy the full version of the game.   ^_^

(Edited 1 time)

Congratulations on such a great experience. Going through the game a second time at the moment and I am still looking forward to it.

Hello, ollie4

Ah, that's so sweet of you  - I'm really glad to hear you're enjoying it. 

Which route did you play first?

Connor's route.

Ah, I'm happy you liked him. I hope you have fun with the rest ^_^

Well. I really like it for now.

All the characters seems to "well done" . Girls are cute ^ ^ .

I can't wait to see full version :)

Hello, MrMar, many thanks for the feedback - I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the demo.

I am hoping to have to full version released soon, so you won't have long to wait. ^_^

Looking forward to the whole experience.

Thanks, ollie4. I hope you enjoy the full game once it is released ^_^

It's going to be GxG and GxB? 

Yep! You play as a girl and you can romance a choice of Bridgette, Karl or Connor.

Ok thanks for the reply, now I'll just wait for all your games to be released haha!
