"...this year's best new CD-Rom adventure game"
In Spring 1998 TDV and its partner Simon & Schuster Interactive launched Starship Titanic, a critically acclaimed PC CD-ROM game. This is supported by a highly successful web site, which provides further entertainment, promotion, advice, support, community services and a retail channel for brand merchandise.
Two books have also been published: the novel of the story (written by Terry Jones) in print and audio form, and a game strategy guide. Negotiations are underway for the development of a Starship Titanic feature film, and worldwide merchandising agreements are being put in place. Development work has now begun on a sequel.
The game is distributed in the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, Holland, Scandinavia, Germany, Israel and will be released later this year in Japan and France. A Mac version has been developed and will be released in Q1 1999.
We are currently developing an all-German version in-house called "Raumschiff Titanic".
