So when you think of adventure games, the last thing you’d imagine is an adventure game based entirely on the voyage that was the
H.M.S. R.M.S. Titanic. Well that’s what a team that have called themselves Four Funnels Entertainment have done. And they’re currently seeking $20,000 on IndieGoGo to get their game that’s based on CryEngine 3 completed and available for all to play.
Titanic: Honor and Glory is set to be an absolutely breathtaking game where the player can explore what the developers hope to be the most accurate representation of the
H.M.S. R.M.S. Titanic that set sail back in 1912 and a few days later became the most famous disaster in history.
The game is set to have two modes, Story mode where you the player play as Owen “Robert” Morgan who’s arrested by Scotland Yard for stealing something from the British Museum. The only problem is, Robert isn’t guilty. The game see’s Robert escaping to the Titanic to find out who the real thief is and to clear his own name, little does he know the disaster that’s about to ensue. The game plays like your typical mystery/adventure game you must interact with passengers and crew aboard the ship and follow certain objective, once completed the games ending remains the same as we all know it the Titanic hits an iceberg and goes down. Players in Story Mode will be able to experience the ship’s sinking in real time to feel exactly how the passengers of the Titanic felt over 100 years ago.
The second game mode is Explorer Mode this mode is more of a museum mode of the ship. There’s no time limit or objectives to follow the player will have all the time in the world to explore every nook and cranny of the
H.M.S. R.M.S. Titanic from end to end, and top to bottom.
The crew (see what I did there) aim to put the $20,000 to good use by upgrading their sluggish equipment, better software, reference material, and legal costs. They’re not just welcoming your cash with open arms though, like with most IndieGoGo and Kickstarter campaigns there are rewards to those of you who pledge, these vary from a simple “thank you” to fancy posters to tours of the Titanic’s location (to be decided).
