Titanic sinking in real time made by group developing game of the disaster


Real time sinking of the Titanic ship.

It takes around two hours and 40 minutes from the time the ocean liner Titanic hit an iceberg to the moment it sank below the waves.

Now the drama of the famous 1912 disaster can be experienced by everyone after a group developing a game based on the sinking produced a real time animation of the event.

The website for the Titanic Honor and Glory project said the game centred on a character called Owen Robert Morgan, a 23-year-old American who is an Oxford University graduate living in Britain.

Through the five days of the voyage he talks to passengers, gathers clues and unravels a mystery at the same time he has to avoid detection.

"When Titanic collides with an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic, the player must race the rising waters to complete the mystery, prove his innocence, and, most importantly.... survive," the website said.

The aim was to recreate the world of 1912, educate players and memorialise the victims and survivors of the sinking.

The makers defended the project against suggestions it could be in bad taste.

"Our core team is made up almost exclusively of people who have grown up appreciating the disaster, respecting those who were lost, and simply want to see all of that brought back to life, even if only digitally," the website said.

"Our consultants are on hand to make sure we get this done right, and we are even bringing descendants of survivors and victims to make sure those on board are accurately represented and properly memorialised."
