It’s not your typical viral video, but a real-time simulation of the Titanic sinking has six million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on April 14.
The video runs a remarkable two hours and 41 minutes. And it’s actually a teaser for an immersive video game currently in production called Titanic: Honor and Glory.
The president of the Titanic Society of Atlantic Canada said the video is causing cautious excitement among Titanic buffs.
Tom Lynskey, director of Vintage Digital Revival, the American company that produced the video and is working on the upcoming game, said every inch of the ship was painstakingly recreated, with no detail too trivial.
“The game is primarily meant to be educational, and the people involved in its production are Titanic aficionados first and gamers second. This is the best way to introduce this to the next generation,” Lysnkey said.
“Many relatives of Titanic survivors have come forward to share their stories to be included in the game’s narrative,” he added.
“The game is still in its early stages, with no timeline set for its completion,” he said.
