Contains content that may not be suitable for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG.

You know the story and have probably seen the film; now you can experience what the disaster was really like for those who were there.

Authors Note: This story is about 90% historically accurate, every event and spoken word occurred in identical or similar form, though to prevent this becoming a comedy I had to change some of the speech (things like "I say old man, that is frightfully sporting" has become "That is very decent of you"). On the bright side you should not find Jack and Rose running around in this story :)

It's hard to find a well made edutainment storygame on this site, and I can assure you that this is pretty well made. I can see the thought and willpower that went into this.

When I first saw the title, I was expecting the predictable, being a survivor on the Titanic, having small misadventures throughout the ship with facts left and right, but no. In the beginning you could pick which ship you were on. This surprised me, because I didn't expect too much.

Instead, what I got was an enjoyable, historically accurate piece of work with a bunch of paths to try out. Keep up the great work, and make the edutainment category great again!

Enjoyable and compelling, contemplative. An unusually serious offering. Approaching this from a logical tactical perspective is unnecessary. There is no adrenaline rush to be had for success, as it is not that kind of book. Ambitious to use the gamebook medium to handle such a tragedy. The terse writing style normal to gamebooks doesn't work here, more description is needed. Worth a read, but not worth playing more than once in my opinion.

Not very involved. Definitely researched.

This was amazing! I don't understand why it's only a 5. Thanks for writing.
