Occupation News photographer

Eric Burns (b. 1883[1]) is an American photographer on his honeymoon on board the Titanic with his newlywed, Stephanie, who is upset at him not spending much time with her. He turned his cabin, C-78, into a small darkroom, in which he keeps a vast collection of photographs of other passengers.

According to Third Officer Morrow, on the night of 13 April, Eric Burns came up from A-Deck and tried to bribe his way onto the Bridge in order to take pictures.[2]

He is not seen after the ship hits the iceberg. Dialogue exists within the game's files, though seems to have been deleted at some point, leading to one presuming he dies with the ship. He is begging the player to give him the boatpass, on the boat deck, so that he and his wife can escape the ship.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Eric Burns was voice-acted by Eric S. Quist, who also appeared as supporting character Pig Farmer Quist in Dust: A Tale of the Wired West, another Cyberflix game from the same era.
  • While the Burnses are in cabin C-78 in the game, in the demo, they occupy cabin A-29.
