    CaptainsVoyage demands the relaunch of the game "Titanic - Adventure out of time."

    Titanic - Adventure out of time.



    This is a great game I bought almost 12 years ago in Miami and I hold very dear to my heart. Unfortunately, the game doesn't play well at all with modern Vista as it is rather old and has not been re-made/re-launched for Vista. Nor does it play at MAC OSX either.

    The company which made it, Cyberflix, is sadly also out of business according to the Internet ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberflix ).

    The game was actually very genius and I remember I could spend a whole day, if not several days playing it. Another feature was also the detailed interiors which you could walk around in, at your own leisure, outside of the game. With the game I could go everywhere on board and really got the feeling on how to walk around on the Titanic actually was like. I loved every minute of it: much because it was incredibly detailed and historically correct.

    I wish this game was made again: actually; CaptainsVoyage demands the game being relaunched, and re-issued updated to work with both Vista and MAC (MAC doesn't even want to install the program anymore).

    Here is some more pages concerning the game:

    Anyone else hooked on this very nice game?

    When I fire up my old XP Home Computer which I have kept, much for the reason of being able to still play it, I will do some screen shots for you to le you know why I'm so thrilled and enthusiastic about this game.

    Yowwww, I wanted this game with a passion. I couldn't find a copy anywhere. Instead I had to settle for Europress Titanic, more of an interactive information CD than a game.
    I do like the sound of the Titanic game!

      The Titanic game of Cyberflix was genius! I was and probably still are, among one of the biggest fans of that game.

      The really cool added feature is that you can walk through the detailed interiors of the ship as you please, through doors, look though windows, go to through the firemans passage, stop by the lounges and the bridge - all outside of the game.

      The game was also extremely nice done: The game begins in April 1942 with the player (named Frank Carlson) being caught in an air raid during the London Blitz of World War II and being sent back in time to 1912 with an opportunity to change history. In 1912, he is a British secret agent on the RMS Titanic, who is told to retrieve a priceless copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. The open-ended gameplay allows the player to either follow the storyline by solving puzzles or simply explore the rooms of the ship.

      The main plot of the adventure game revolves around recovering the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, which is revealed to have been stolen earlier in the year and is now suspected of being in the possession of Zeitel, a German Oberst (Colonel) who is traveling on the Titanic under the guise of inspecting embassies in the United States and Central America. Along with the Colonel is his young protegé named Willie Von Haderlitz. Through a web of intrigue, it is revealed that the Colonel has made a deal with an art dealer named Sasha Barbicon to exchange the Rubaiyat for a rare painting (made by the then-unknown Adolf Hitler). The Colonel and Barbicon act through an intermediary go-between, a Serbian stowaway named Vlad Demonic.

      In addition to the Rubaiyat and the painting, the agent soon learns that Willie is in fact a spy for the Russians and has in his possession a notebook with names of top Bolsheviks. The notebook is to be handed over to the Okrana so that the Communist rebels will be executed, eliminating a threat to the Czar.

      A final item that appears in the game, the acquisition of which is critical, is a rare diamond necklace that Sasha has stolen to pay Vlad for his services and also to finance a Serbian terrorist group called the Black Hand. Vlad’s involvement with the Black Hand sets the stage for the events on the Titanic directly impacting whether or not the Black Hand will assassinate the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, thus sparking the start of World War I.

      During his mission, the agent also becomes involved in several sub-plots unrelated to the central mission or, for that matter, the winning conditions of the game. One important sub-plot begins by meeting the ship’s “gossip hound”, in the form of a wealthy middle-aged spinster named Daisy Cashmore. Cashmore gives the player a note to meet Andrew Conkling, the owner of Conkling Steel. Conkling tells the player to recover a business document of his that had been stolen by Shailagh Hacker, a maid in his London house.

      Other plots include meeting and helping a wealthy couple (the Lambeths) whose marriage has gone bad, as well as meeting other passengers such as Leyland Sachum Trask, a psychic from Boston; Reverend Edgar Troutt, a religious preacher from Sunapee, New Hampshire who is returning from an African mission in Nyasaland; and Max Seidelman, an American freelance businessman from Philadelphia, who provide backstory and insight of varying value. Assisting the player from time to time is fellow agent Penny Pringle.

      The number of objects the player recovers before escaping the ship affects the final cut scene and how history plays out. If the player obtains all the objects, history is altered with World War I, the Russian Revolution, and World War II never occurring; the character retires after a successful career to a world of peace. If the player fails to collect them or dies while escaping, history occurs as normal and the player dies in the London Blitz. Other endings (based on variations of objects collected) include Germany beginning WWII with a full nuclear arsenal (the character is killed in a nuclear attack), Germany conquering Russia and England due to the Communists having been stopped (the character is killed by a Nazi Stormtrooper), and the Soviet Union claiming much of Europe (the character is shot by a Russian Shock Trooper).

      I'll get some screen shots up for you some day soon.

        Now surely you didn't forget to check out eBay did you SaintsFCFan?
        I just looked and there are over a dozen copies to be had!

          Ah... I guess I could do that, but lack of trust with ebay makes it a no no for me. I'm not too trusting in online pay sites. Although I did once buy a CD album from CD Baby, and the center spindle was damaged.

            That's fair comment, but i must admit that in the 5 years or so i have been using eBay i have never had a problem. Mind you, i am always careful who i buy off, i always check their feedback first. Paypal on the other hand can be a nightmare. I do not really trust them at all, twice in three years my account with them as been broken into. I have always got my money back, but they have never given me any explanations as to how the breach occurred.

              Spent time playing the entire game to the end today.... and I made it to the lifeboat with the Rubaiyat and the golden necklaces before Titanic sunk!

              Must say, the last 30-40 minutes was extremely exiting and I was rushing to get into that last lifeboat before time ran out!

              This is a very good game, and if you find it on e-bay: get it, play it and enjoy it!

              This is a very fascinating game and for ship lovers, it's a must!

              I had to get help at one point in the game, couldn't crack the safe in one of the staterooms: http://www.sunstorm.com/ceo/hints/ti...anic%20Sinking

                As I have said so many times before, this game is well worth it's weight in Gold for any person remotely interested in Titanic. It won't play well on Vista, but it does play very well on XP or older (a MAC version hybrid is also available).

                I promised some screen shots earlier, and I eventually made some... they are of a really bad quality... I just did it the simple way of taking a picture of the computer screen... in real, the scenes are way more accurate and detailed.

                As mentioned, you have two options here; play the game, or walk around the ship on your own! Both equally fascinating.

                Now, maybe some members already can recognize some of the areas I walked through today?

                        You really got to learn your way around the ship: some of the locations are really hard to find:
