Game description

As the game begins you find yourself standing on board the Titanic, on her maiden voyage. Of course, that particular voyage was never completed! Your goal is to survive and somehow get back to your home in the United States.

Most of your time will be spent solving numerous problems and dangers that arise, like starvation and drowning. If you've played any of Infocom's famous text games you will notice that Beyond the Titanic is quite similar to Zork and Planetfall.

This game was written when most computers ran games directly from floppy disks, and weren't installed to a hard drive. Hence most of the instructions refer to floppy disks and whatnot. You can just unpack this zip file and copy all the files to a fresh directory on your hard drive, and it will play fine. However, you need a floppy disk to save your games to. You can also play the game directly from a floppy disk.

This game was deleted from Apogee's product line quite some time ago, and it was re-released in March 1998 as freeware. However, the ability to recompile the program to remove the shareware references was no longer available, hence the program still says it can be registered. It can not.
