Hidden Expedition: Titanic is an adventure-puzzle casual game developed by Big Fish Studios, and distributed by Big Fish Games. It is the first installment in the Hidden Expedition series (Hidden Expedition: Titanic, Hidden Expedition: Everest).

Story[edit | edit source]

In Hidden Expedition: Titanic, the player takes on the role of a treasure hunter working for the Hidden Expedition Adventure League (HEAL) to investigate the wreckage of the ocean liner RMS Titanic. Although the Titanic was deemed 'unsinkable' by the press, it sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg on April 14, 1912 during its maiden voyage from Queenstown, Ireland to New York City, USA.

When the game begins, the player received a letter from the director of the Titanic Museum Foundation. The museum recently discovered an extremely rare, highly valuable, long-lost artifact - the Queen's jeweled crown - was on the Titanic when it sank.

Your mission is to search the Titanic and recover this crown along with any other rare artifacts you find. You are asked to return the artifacts you recover to the Titanic Museum, but are allowed to keep any gems you find.

The game is divided into 14 unique dive expeditions in 17 different sections of the ship. You will be given a list of artifacts to find in each room before your oxygen runs out.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Like all Hidden Expedition titles, Hidden Expedition: Titanic relies heavily on the hidden object puzzle. However, at the end of each successful dive you are presented with a mini-game you must solve in order to gain access to the next room on the ship.

Theme and production values[edit | edit source]

Hidden Expedition: Titanic features pre-rendered puzzles with many moving parts, as well as high quality orchestral audio and outstanding character voicing. The music was composed by Jean-Marc Lederman.

Reception[edit | edit source]

According to independent tracking site game-sales-charts.com, following its release on July 19, 2006, Hidden Expedition: Everest climbed into the top 10 on nearly every major casual game distribution site. Moreover, it held the #1 sales spot on 11 of these sites.[1]

Leading casual games industry outlets such as Gamezebo.com have featured extremely positive reviews of Hidden Expedition: Titanic.
