Titanic: The Game is a survival-thriller game by Clover Entertainment. It is one of the few video games to be based on real-life events. The game was created because of the 100th anniversery of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. It is going to be released on June 5, 2012, for Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, and PS3.
You take on the role of Jack Stephenson, a man wanting to take his wife, Nancy, on a vacation onboard the Titanic, the largest luxury liner in the world. But they have no idea of the terrifying adventure they will go through on this voyage. At around midnight, the ship collides with an iceberg, causing it to sink. Now, as the ship starts submerging to its doom with people on board, Jack and Nancy must now survive one of the worst maritime disasters in history.
The game is a survival thriller game. You must escape the Titanic within 2 hours (which is how long it really took for the Titanic to sink), or die. You can interact with other people trying to escape as well. You can befriend them and try to help them escape as well, or ignore them. It's your choice. You also have the ability to use objects on the ship to your advantage, such as using a crowbar to pry open a locked door. Escape from walls of water coming into the ship, selfish people who only care about their own safety and nobody elses, and falling debris from the falling apart of the ship (which really split in two during the disaster. Try to make your way to the life boats. Roam the ship with the time you have to find things which could be used to help you and your wife escape. There are 2 ways to escape: You need to get to one of the life boats in time, or try to singal the rescue boats to come get you.
But the game doesn't start at ONLY the ship sinking. Then you'd beat the game too quickly. Instead, before you get to the disaster part, you also can explore the ship and fight people that decide to pick a fight with you. There are some objectives while on the ship you need to complete as well, like helping a lady find her dog, who got lost on the ship, or fighting someone flirting with your wife, Nancy. You can also collect bonus content found on the ship, such as concept art, documentaries on the real life event, fun facts, and a featurette on James Cameron's movie adaption of the disaster, which earned $1 billion on its initial run, but earned $400 million more on its re-release, bringing it to a total of $2 billion.
