Yes it's Monday, yes it's another four whole days until the weekend, but here is a two-hour, 41-minute-long real-time recreation of the sinking of the Titanic.

Created as part of an upcoming video game that allows players to experience exactly what it was like to be on the doomed voyage, the animation sees the tragedy unfold as it happened for the first time since the ship sank in 1912. It lays bare how long the crew took to react to horror that was about to unfold, and captures the last-ditch efforts to save as many people as possible.

Sadly there's no dying Leonardo DiCaprio in sight, but on the bright side the animation is half an hour shorter than James Cameron's 1997 hit movie.

Watch the recreation above, and after that be sure to check out something that definitely won't sink: a Mercedes-Benz-designed yacht.
