Note: This might not count as a Titanic -related thread, but It seemed important to inform or mention of.

Recently I have noticed a playable demo has been released for a upcoming indie game called Under. The demo is set in 1917 on a ocean liner sinking in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and your character (a ex-WW1 Soilder suffering from Survivor's guilt and / or PTSD) has to escape the ship's flooding corridors while avoiding a ghostly figure following him.

While not literally set on the Titanic, It is definitely inspired by her and the game's interior design does bear a resemblance to Scotland Road or the 3rd Class dinning Saloon and cabins (also the demo's ending has a corridor resembling one on the Queen Mary).

It might be seen as copying Honor & Glory or being insensitive but might have to wait to be seen.

And we thought the Black Ops zombie game on the Titanic was bad enough, and now there are people working on THIS?!? What's next, a Titanic-themed battle royale game?

At least in this, it's rather vague whether it is the Titanic* or not (I only made the connection due to the cabins and the obvious mention of it sinking in the Atlantic), it's only being used as a symbolic setting for possibly guilt or purgatory(?) and the only characters being yourself and a WW1 ghost zombie.

Compared to the Black Ops game which is clearly set on the Titanic, has several recognisable / iconic areas and has you gunning down obvious passenger and crew zombies.



* A poster in the game states "Southern Pacific Steamships - 10,000 tons - New York Orleans" which if quickly googled shows it to be a real shipping line?

I was just looking into this and I've found in another Wikipedia article that this line, while mainly a railroad, did indeed have a fleet of three steamships in the Atlantic, one of which, the S.S. Antilles, sank in 1917, the year in which the game takes place.

As of October 26th, the game (now renamed as "UNDER: Depths Of Fear") has been released and made available to play along with several trailers.

From the trailers, various cabins / areas can be seen that appear to be based on an variety of designs from White Star, Cunard and CGT (?) ships along with more direct inspiration from possibly the Queen Mary and the Keewatin to name a few.

Also, atmosphere-wise, seems to have taken a lot of inspiration from Titanic Adventure Out of Time (in a good way!) and appears to have very good water graphics.

Overall, despite it's horror-theme, It will be interesting to see what others might make of it's unique setting.

Wesley Crow, I'm sorry for not responding to your comment sooner, I did see it at the time. It's certainly very coincidental and I did wonder at the time whether the maker(s) perhaps knew or were inspired by the sinking of the Antilles in some way, unless it is just a big coincidence...
