The Titanic finished sinking 103 years ago Wednesday. (Technically, it started sinking on the 14th, when it struck the iceberg.) Because there isn’t a remastered 3-D re-release of the film coming out this year, we found you the next best thing: An eight-bit video game.

CineFix has an entire series called 8-Bit Cinema that specializes in NES-quality retellings of everything from The Walking Dead to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. They are, in a word, majestic – the Titanic-themed installment features wonderfully vintage video-game touches like a “Romance meter” and an aged Rose tossing the Heart of the Ocean into the sea at the end.

According to Box Office Mojo, James Cameron’s decidedly non-eight-bit retelling of the Titanic‘s sinking has grossed $2,186,772,302 worldwide.
