Septentrion - Out of the Blue is a 3-D action game where you attempt to escape from a sinking ship...A game based on a Poseidon Adventure disaster.

The game is the Playstation remake of the SNES game of the same name (also known as S.O.S).

This time the player must escape an ultra modern cruiseship called the Kingweenzer. The gameplay is about navigate Crewman Brown and radioman Carter around to find items and save people.

Although the plauyer can only control one character in the beginning, he can eventually open up different characters and see the story from different viewpoints. In the original SOS, it was never questioned why ship sank - it was just a gigantic wave. Here, there's a conspiracy to uncover.

  Manufacturer's description:

Ambition and schemes aboard a luxury liner with an inescapable fate! On December 24, 1999, the luxury liner King Windsor, all decked out for the Christmas holiday, slipped out of Boston Harbor. However, a sudden collision causes the ship to begin sinking. This is a realistic portrayal of a naval accident and the rescue of its victims.
