The tragic story of the world's largest and most luxurious liner told in a brand new way.
Story of the Titanic presents and dissects one of the most tragic events of the 20th Century in a way never seen before. With an incredible new format, Story of the Titanic provides a fully interactive insight into the 'unsinkable ship' - from its construction and fit-out, to the fateful maiden voyage, bringing the beautiful and unique illustrations of award-winning Steve Noon to life.
This version, designed for the iPad, allows you to stroll along the decks of the Titanic in stunning 3D, watch video footage of the ship being built and launched, and you can even listen to the haunting footage of distress calls taken from its final night.
Nine lavish photo albums feature incredible photographs of the ship, from its construction to the finished interior, and give a real sense of life onboard. A zoom-out map keeps track of where the Titanic is on its voyage and a sequence shows you how the ship actually came to sink.
Twenty-two detailed "Can you spot?" galleries take the original cutaway pictures into a whole new dimension, encouraging the user to embark on the voyage with passengers, learning about their experience, and engaging directly with the illustration. You'll hear the tales of the people on board including the captain, members of the crew, and passengers from first, second, and third class, but this time to get to experience them too.
Go one step further with this lavish version of Story of the Titanic, following the "unsinkable" liner from the start of its maiden voyage to its disastrous death.
