In our last episode, the Hollywood starlet Rita Farnsworth was set upon by two gangs bent on capturing her. She managed to evade them, slipping away during the fighting. Since then she has been hiding with a local family. Two days ago, she spied a sailor in the market. Approaching him, she learned he was the mate of the tramp steamer Errant Captain. He, in turn, was stunned to learn her identity, and quickly agreed to help her escape.
After an overnight journey to a secluded coastline, Rita and the mate wait to meet a landing party from the Errant Captain. Now, in the pre-dawn, as they head towards the boat, they realise they are far from alone...
Now go back and look a the pictures. How close are they standing!? Yes, let that sink in... The ship's bosun (grey shirt with tommy gun), singlehandedly took out six or seven opponents with a few well placed bursts. It was carnage.
Well, apart from the gnawingly ambiguous ending, that was one of the most fun games of Pulp Alley I've played (it helped that I was the sailors!) It certainly was the one with the biggest body count.
