A rendering of the First Class Cafe Parisien on B-Deck. All that’s missing are the china, cigar holders, and ivy. (Though without those things, this resembles an early photo of Titanic’s Cafe.)
Where would you prefer taking a meal, the Dining Saloon, the A La Carte Restaurant, or the Cafe Parisien?
A little fun for our followers: Can you guess where this is from?

And on a side note: While we have not posted as much lately, we’re still hard at work behind the scenes, so thanks for bearing with us!
We are now shipping the ‘Titanic: Honor and Glory’ stationary set, one of our Indiegogo perks for those who donated a total of $200 or more. If you donated $200 or more, you should receive your set within a few weeks (depending on your location).
The set includes:
- ONE mouse pad (featuring the Grand Staircase and game logo)
- ONE note pad (WSL stationary style featuring the game logo)
- TWO sticky note pads (featuring the game logo)
- TWO pens (featuring Titanic’s hull and game logo)
Thank you again for your contributions!
NOTE: This full set is only available to the Indiegogo donors of $200 or more (and likely donors to our next fundraising campaign), but individual items - similar to those seen here - might possibly be sold to those who would like to buy them in the future.
The 'Titanic: Honor and Glory' team welcomes Anthony Casalena as our musical composer for the project. Here’s a brief bio:
It only took a moment for Anthony Casalena to become enthralled by the intricacies of orchestral music, and how accurately it could convey a particular emotion. He promptly began cultivating his new passion through classical piano training and by 17 had immersed himself into a wide range of genres. At 22, he furthered his education at the SAE Institute of New York and upon graduation has produced an extensive portfolio of pieces for advertising, game, and film.
Like many young people, Anthony was also intrigued by the story of the Titanic, even writing a speech on the topic while in primary school. 20 years later he is pleased to be given the opportunity to score the music for the modern video game.
Being involved with a team whose vocation is to give fans and enthusiasts a life-like experience is an honor. He will put forth his greatest efforts in trying to capture the gargantuan ship’s decor with music and enliven all of the game’s advocates.

This view is similar to that of a 1933 photo of Olympic’s C-Deck Grand Staircase, which you can see by clicking here.

So who wants to join us here for some tea? (Please excuse the graininess, we thought it was still too good not to share.)
Some of you may recall a group on Facebook called “The Olympic Class Liners: Olympic - Titanic - Britannic”. Sadly, that group has closed its doors at the behest of its creator after four years. However, former TOCL admins (including myself) have started a new group; “The White Star Liners: Olympic - Titanic - Britannic”, a group with the same purpose as the old, dedicated to talk and research about Titanic and her sister ships.
So, if you’re interested in the RMS Titanic and her sister ships, and especially if you were a member of the old group, please feel free to join our new group (which is closed to non-members). We’re a friendly bunch, with a variety of members from the casual fan of the Titanic to hardcore Titanoraks and renowned Titanic historians and authors. (However, if you’re looking for Kate and Leo, you won’t find them here.)
See you there!
While not part of our project, one of our team members is an admin on this new group and it’s a great way to socialize over the Titanic!
This is just a update about the perks from our Indiegogo campaign. Due to a mistake we do not have some of your addresses (for shipping physical perks like a free copy of the game or stationary sets). Those who donated $50 or more to us, please check your email. If you did not receive an email from us, that means we already have your information, and there is no need for you to give us your information. If you do have an email, please respond to itwith your full name and full address (to our project’s email at firstname.lastname@example.org) so we will be able to ship your perks in a few months or whenever they’re ready. Thank you very much for your donations!

How about a little more light?
A rendering of Titanic’s D-Deck Reception Room during the day, with the candelabra being no less magnificent when turned off. Click here to see the candelabra in a different light.
How about a little light?
A rendering of the magnificent candelabra on the D-Deck landing of Titanic’s Grand Staircase, casting an eerie glow across the First Class Reception Room.
Not only do Titanic’s colors shine, but her graceful lines and sheer are pleasing to the eye. Both are apparent in these new renderings.
(The shade of White Star Buff is not final, and the model is still a WIP with much to be done yet.)
The colors of Titanic truly shine.
A new exterior rendering featuring a test placement of the funnels and gamma-correct nodes attached to the shaders. The shade of ‘White Star Buff’ seen here is not final, but is more accurate than in earlier renderings.
A new rendering of Titanic’s First Class Smoke Room.
Our team is particularly fond of the Mother of Pearl in the woodwork, and we have some new and improved stained glass designs thanks to Nicolas Murgia. The muses of painting (on the left) and sculpture flank the depiction of a sailing ship leaving port. Other stained glass windows on the inner walls depict other muses such as poetry and astronomy.
A new render of Titanic’s Second Class Smoke Room.
Located on B-Deck, it was decorated in a variation of the Louis XVI style and provided a place for the men of Second Class to socialize and play games of chance while having a cigar or a drink. This is one of several of our models recently updated for detail and accuracy.
A render of the newly-completed whistle and part of the funnel its attached to for our Titanic exterior model.
As the ‘White Star Buff’ color (the “yellow” on the funnel) has been a major subject of debate in the Titanic community, the shade you see here may not be final, and is distorted by lighting conditions.
