Question - What is “Titanic: Honor and glory”?
Answer - It is an upcoming action/adventure/mystery video game we are working hard to develop. You'll get to sail aboard the Titanic, experience the world of 1912, interact with passengers and crew, see the ship from all angles, explore every deck and room of the ship, and finally, in the end of the game, you get to experience the sinking in real-time. Everything is presented with the greatest detail and accuracy we can muster.
Question - How much of the Titanic are you making?
Answer - All of it! Or at least, nearly 100%, excluding most vents/shafts, tanks and possibly coal bunkers. Otherwise, we will have the entire ship inside and out, from the masts to the keel, and from the Grand Staircases to the boiler rooms. Even the linen closets and bathrooms will be included.
Question - Will we get a demo?
Answer - Yes, there will be a demo of this game as we get to the point where we have a sufficient amount of material to have a respectable demo. As with all games, it will be a free download, though as promised, our donors who gave a sufficient amount to earn the demo perk will receive it ahead of time.
Question - When will the game be finished/released?
Answer - We do not yet have a release date for the game. The project, factoring in a past project as well, has been several years in the making. Matt and Kyle have been working for a long time on their models, often reworking and improving them, and they still have a ways to go until they’re finished. There’s much more that must also be done before we have an extensive working game. If all goes according to plan, though, it’s possible we could have it done by 2016-2017. If/When BSL's Titanic II is built, the game’s release may coincide with that ship’s completion. Again, if all goes according to plan. For now we have no exact completion or release date.
Question - What are the system requirements?
Answer - We do not yet have a solid set of requirements for the game. We’ll know more later on. Sufficed to say, you will likely need a fairly powerful PC to play the game. In the mean time, you can stay up to date and read about the technical details of the process, and gain insight on what we are using. It is likely that the required system specs will be announced there before anywhere else. You can find that page here.
Question - Will the game have missions and a story?
Answer - Yes! The game will feature a story that you can play through. The story is being written by Tom Lynskey, writer and director of the independent films “The Last Signals” and “Belfast Air”, among others. The plan is to have primary missions you’ll have to play through to advance the story, and plenty of side missions you can play around the ship.
Question - What is the story about?
Answer - We cannot say much at this time, but it will be a bit of a thriller and a mystery. The character you will be playing as has been accused by Scotland yard of stealing jewels from the British museum in London, the player must board the R.M.S. titanic to find the actual culprit and clear his name. Little does he realize a few days after setting sail from Southampton England, the ship becomes the center of one of the most famous disasters in history. Stay up to date on information about the storyline by checking out our story page.
Question - Will we get to see the ship sink?
Answer - Yes! You will be able to experience the sinking first hand. You will have to rescue others and save yourself as you make your way through the flooding corridors of the ship and encounter various problems.
Question - Will we get to explore the ship in a “free roam” mode?
Answer - Yes! While the story mode might restrict some areas of the ship, and the sinking even more, we intend on having a free roam/tour mode that will allow you to explore the entire ship at your leisure, possibly with educational tidbits about the ship.
Question - Will you have real-life characters?
Answer - Yes. With minimal exceptions, all characters of the game will be real-life Titanic figures. You will not play as a real life figures, you will be able to befriend them and talk with them. The ship itself will be populated with historical figures, including all the background characters.
