Oh, thanks for listing these! I’m on my phone so digging up the spreadsheet is a little challenging.
All Hands Abandon Ship: entirely set on a spaceship, 10.
Citizen Makane: don’t recall any boatiness, 1.
Creative Cooking: there’s a river, maybe there are some boats for scenery? Will check my transcript tonight. EDIT: oops, didn’t have a transcript, but I went out and checked out the watery locations (river and pond) but there are no watercraft to be found. 1.
Hawkstone: didn’t get very far with this, but the non interactive opening has you dropped off from a boat, which I think ekes out a 4? Hopefully others who played further can say if there’s more boatiness later.
Lake Starlight: set on a lake but no boat travel as such, but I think they’re mentioned as scenery, and an NPC tells a story involving piracy. Either a 2 or 3? EDIT: no boats in the scenery, but there is a boat house in addition to the story, so I think this is a 3. Though I actually am now agreeing with Andrew’s thought in post 1 that maybe 2 and 3 should have been flipped, since a noninteractive boat feels more boat-y than the mere implication of a boat. Rather late in the day to make that change though so maybe a grow for next year’s Boatiness Quotient.
Magor Investigates…: no boats so far as I remember. 1
One Knight Stand: ditto. 1
Out of Scope: I wasn’t able to finish this due to a bug. The main characters are part of a naval family, so feels like at least a 3 to me.
The Witch: also didn’t finish this; there’s definitely a river but don’t remember any boats specifically. EDIT: Read over my transcript and also the walkthrough one posted on the Comp site, and I’m not seeing anything. 1.
Having done these double-checks, I’ll put these numbers into the sheet.
