The most famous ship - and shipwreck - story of all time is making its way to Windows and MacOS platforms in 2021. In development since 2012, Titanic: Honor and Glory has suffered from management changes, which ultimately led to different visions and directions for the upcoming game. The title developed by Vintage Digital Revival, also faced a change from a crowdfunding model, as well as an engine substitution that pushed the game back even further.
Initially developed to be a story revolving around an american student named Owen Robert Morgan, who is mistaken for a criminal, the protagonist sets out to try and clean his name during the voyage. An action-detective game at heart, players would have two and a half hours after the famous iceberg hit, to solve the mystery before the unsinkable ship finally sank. Unfortunately these concepts were erased with all the changes, and little has been announced surrounding the pending release in the last quarter of 2021.
History as We Know It
Ever since new directions were announced the game has completely shifted its purpose and it seems like the investigative nature of the game was left behind. What we do know is that Vintage Digital Revival has taken the project to a direction that puts players in the shoes of an explorer. Its new intentions are to re-create the most accurate replica and depictions of the ship ever made, in that pursuit, intense research occurred in the last decade to set this game apart.
Titanic: Honor and Glory aims to be a game that traverses the gaming barrier, and acts not only as a history lesson, but also as a monument to honor all who lost their lives in this fateful event. By doing so the game is clearly aimed towards history buffs, and aficionados of Titanic’s epic tale. As far as we know, the game will provide a 100% explorable ship, that through the developer work will be the most complete version ever seen. As for gameplay, almost nothing has been revealed, all that is known is that the game will take players on a voyage that ends with the tragedy the world has come to know.
Titanic: Honor and Glory is shaping up to become something of its own, and might blur the lines of what games can be. From the thorough research made by the team, acquisition of blueprints, and partnerships created to accurately depict the historical figures, the game is betting on its realism to attract players.
Developed with virtual reality in mind, this title wants to tear down the barriers and mysteries of the ship, by providing unlimited access in some of the most realistic graphics the gaming industry has seen - at least on the structural side of things. There are hundreds of rooms, memorabilia, collectibles and characters that will help players immerse themselves on the experience being sold.
Honor & Glory
An awe-inspiring game visually, Titanic: Honor and Glory walks the line between virtual reality simulations, and gaming. While the game has a clear appeal towards history buffs, and Titanic aficionados, little is known if any gameplay features will be added, or if the game will stand as a monument honoring the events of the shipwreck. Clearly, there was no lack of research or attention to detail, as can be clearly seen by the images, research and teaser released by the team.
Games like Mystery of Time and Space, The Room There, and other exploration titles may bear some resemblance to Titanic: Honor and Glory, but the latter feels unique, and ready to blur the lines of what gaming has become. The sheer quality of the graphics and design might be enough to attract gamers, but all those who love the famous Titanic story, look like they’re in for a treat.
