About The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man Of Medan

About this game

Developed by Supermassive Games and published by Bandai Namco.

Experience a horror story that branches out through your own choices in The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man Of Medan. Will everyone in your story make it to the end? There’s only one way to find out. 

There'll Be Horror

In Man of Medan, you'll experience the story of five characters — Brad, Alex, Julia, Fliss, and Conrad — who set sail together on a holiday diving trip in hopes of having some fun. Unfortunately for them, everything will soon take a much more sinister turn.

Don't Die

Everyone's fate is in your hands. There's no plot armor or safety in this game; everyone can die if you're not careful. You make all the decisions, and that comes with a lot of responsibility.

Don't Go Alone

If you don't feel up to controlling a whole cast of characters all along, you're welcome to invite friends to join! Whether online or passing the control around, they'll be able to make the decisions for different characters. Can you all survive a journey aboard a ghost ship?

Is this a perfect game? No. Controls are janky, but oh boy is it fun! I'm still discovering all of the different chapters and scenes because they change depending on who you have and the choices you make. It's really amazing the sheer amount of variation and content here. Also, maybe it's because I'm super spooked about boats (particularly large cruise liners), but this is full of a lot of good scares. Some jump scares, but the sound design and setting is perfect for a growing sense of dread.

Great game. Especially if you play the two player coop mode. The perspective each player gets in coop mode is vastly different from the person they are playing with. That's all I can say without spoilers, but this game is very well done. There can be some frustrating bugs that freeze the game, but the game itself is great.

I love these kinda games, I wish Squid Game game and even battle royals would be done this way, firstly as single player cinematic story based games... Secondly nice local/online multiplayer interactive movie modes... Same team that made Until Dawn which I'd love to see to come to PC... It is similar to that, only this is way shorter but this way we get yearly releases, always other settings... Almost perfect ultrawide support it has, only the prerendered video trailer that plays when you first launch the game and when it teases the next one at the end are off meaning they're actually ultrawide but in the 16:9 space so they are blackbarred all around which is sad they missed to fix, but otherwise perfect fullscreen uw support. Very atmospheric, loved it. Not strong story, I've haven't yet played the newer ones but afaik they are better. Which brings us to conclusion that is buy if it's at good price being older, or bundled, or discounted, absolutely worth it. I can only hope they are super ultrawide supported too, idk.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan is the first installment of the DPA, which is a series of horror cinematic story games from the makers of Until Dawn. In Man of Medan 4 friends and a boat captain goes for a sea trip and diving, but later they get into much more serious journey, which is not without danger. I played the game in Movie Night (Couch COOP with Remote Play) and Shared Story mode (Online Multiplayer with friend), so my experience will based on that. The game looks really good. The environment and the effects are beautiful in this game, props are well detailed in general. Characters also looking amazing, however for me, some of the emotions looked weird in general, like some character face seems lifeless in a few times. Also there are parts where characters goes through each other a little bit, props are bugging into diaries or other texts, and some objects has weird physics. I wouldn't say the graphics is wonderful, it has some problems, but it's all right. Controls are a pretty good factor in the game. You can play the game either with keyboard + mouse or with controller. Another good thing is, if you have both of them at the same time and if you want to use any of them at any part of the story, the control layout will change and show you the current needed button for that control type. Easy to play the game, you don't need to use lot of buttons. However moving around with the characters was a pain for me, just like it was in Heavy Rain for example, characters moving so heavily, like a tank. Also, mouse controls somewhat buggy, when you reading a multiple page long text or trying to "swipe" with it. It's not that bad, if you got controller. Sound and music is really on point. Sounds are unique and not annoying in general. Voice acting is okay, but there are some lines which didn't had the emotion which I expected. Also, sometimes the dub disappear in certain scenes, I don't know why. Music is surprisingly one of the best thing in the game. They put lot of effort to it and there are some banging tracks, too. About the gameplay, it's like a point and click adventure horror game with quick time events. The story itself is not bad, but not amazing either, you will need more than one play through to understand what is going on. The choices you make indeed change the outcome of the story. One of my favorite parts where the Curator basically "rate" your story and sometimes wants you too help you out with hints. This scenes obviously...
