On May 29, 1914, the RMS Empress of Ireland and the Storstad collided at around 2:00 am, on the St. Lawrence River near Rimouski, Quebec due to heavy fog. She was sailing from Quebec City to Liverpool. The Empress of Ireland quickly began taking on water, listing towards the starboard side; within a few minutes, it became impossible to launch any more lifeboats. 14 minutes after the collision, the Empress sunk, taking with her 1,012 of 1,477 aboard.

We have two major announcements!

Our first announcement: After a week or so of work, we’ve built up an official website. Here, you can explore a large amount of new content, including more in-game images, and a massive amount of behind the scenes information, including progress charts, story details, and EVEN CHARACTER IMAGES. Our website also includes a page of information about the ship with a lot of great tidbits about Titanic and her sisters.

Here’s our new official website link. Spread it around!

More will come in time; we hope to eventually add a forum, and keep our blogs and content updating constantly. We will continue to keep Facebook and Tumblr up to date, but the website will always be the first place to find new things, and you’ll even find a lot of exclusive content there from here on.

Our second announcement: Now that Epic Games’ Unreal 4 game engine has been released publicly, we are happy to announce that we are now working with Unreal 4, and our recent in game images were all from the formerly exclusive Unreal 4. Some of the games you might be familiar with, like the Mass Effect, Bioshock, and Gears of War series use Unreal Engine.

Modeling the Olympic Class: Titanic, Olympic, and Britannic Recreated

The Titanic Bibliophile Page

A group for collectors of Titanic books or those interested in such books, to discuss and share collections and books.
