Watch the Titanic Sink in Real Time

A chilling real-time animation of the sinking of Titanic has been released and is not for everyone
As if the thought of it was not enough; a video of the historic RMS Titanic sinking has been made to shed light on the horrific events that unfolded on that fateful day.

The most notable aspect of the video is the amount of time it took for the gigantic liner to sink underwater, which was a lot longer than one may think.

The animation video is the effort of Four Funnels Entertainment, which is a games company; the entire video is pretty long, two hours and 40 minutes long to be more precise, depicted the sinking of the Titanic in a real-time.
. . .
The overall feel of the video is as if the viewer is riding on a massive drone that is observing the sinking of the liner. In the first few minutes Captain Smith can be heard shouting and giving emergency instructions to avoid the collision, but despite the measures the liner side-crashes into the iceberg and carries on seemingly intact. However, soon after this, the Titanic starts to sink.

I confess I didn't watch the whole thing in sequence, and kind of skipped around and did it in about 30 minutes. Other than voices, there are no people depicted. It really brings home the slow, inexorable filling of the ship with water after the glancing blow with the iceberg, and the screwy use of lifeboats.

Some music to help you pass the time while watching the video.
