To reiterate, Ship of Fools is playable solo. You don’t need a companion to enjoy everything Ship of Fools has to offer. If you decide to brave the Aquapolypse alone, you’ll have an automated Sentry Cannon. You’ll need to reload it and manually move it if necessary, but it will shoot enemies on its own with precision and reliability.
