Meet the luckiest video game protagonist in history as we look back on Titanic: Adventure Out of Time

From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobett wrote Crapshoot, a dice-rolling column to bring random games back to light. This week, a lost adventure on a lost adventure where the ship happened and the world was never the same again.

Frank Carlson is the luckiest man in the history of video game protagonists. A spy in 1912, assigned to the Titanic, he survives the sinking only to be fired from the Office of Strategic Services and find himself alone during World War II, in a room he cannot even afford. On his desk, just a tarot card – Death – representing, as always, the cliche. In his desk drawer, a ticket… for the Hindenburg.
