Titanic sinks in REAL TIME - 2 HOURS 40 MINUTES

The anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic was on April 14, and if you have almost 3 hours to spare, this video game recreation of the sinking of the Titanic in real time, is worth a watch. Can you imagine all the work that went into this? We'll be bookmarking this for later...

This is our full-length animation of the Titanic sinking, beginning with the iceberg collision and ending with its disappearance. The point of collision is at 1:06. This is a complete animation; not a short animation that was slowed down to match real time. This is also highly accurate, though we have already documented improvements we plan to make for the final game. The animation includes text frequently appearing with what is happening on board the ship. This includes visuals of various interior rooms flooding, lifeboats launching, rockets firing, and the Californian on the horizon. The animation was created in Unreal Engine 4. The exterior model used is not our final model, but an older model created by one of our team members.
