Don't Play Alone
From the developers of Until Dawn...

Enter the world of The Dark Pictures - A series of standalone cinematic horror games. Players will be challenged to explore and uncover each story with the knowledge that all their choices have consequences and all playable characters can live, any and all can die...

Man of Medan is the first game in The Dark Pictures anthology, bringing supernatural horror to the South Pacific. Five friends set sail on a holiday diving trip with a rumored WWII wreck to find. As the day unfolds and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister. Who will live? Who will die? It’s down to you. Can you save them all?

A Terrifying Experience
Supermassive Games delivers a new, horrific narrative journey where you will have to confront your deepest fears.​

Can You Save Them All?
All playable characters can live and all can die. The choices you make will decide their fate. Death could be just around the corner…​

What Will You Do To Survive?
Each choice you make has a consequence which can mean life or death for your character. Will you keep your head whilst struggling to survive? What decisions will you make?​



The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 30, publisher Bandai Namco and developer Supermassive Games announced.

Pre-orders will include day one access to the “Curator’s Cut” of the game. Here is an overview of the Curator’s Cut, via Bandai Namco:

The Curator’s Cut opens up a myriad of different options and an alternative path through the game, experienced from an entirely new perspective. The Curator’s Cut will reveal its secrets once the game has been completed once, from there, a new world of possibilities open up to players, including:
  • A new perspective from different characters are unlocked.
  • New options and choices are offered within each scene that requires player choice; new decisions means new outcomes to discover.
  • New scenes and secrets not featured in the original playthrough are also unlocked.

Really looking forward to it!
The idea of a series of interactive "b-movies" really appeals to me.

`The first three [games] are well underway and the fourth and fifth are fairly well advanced from a narrative perspective.” He added that the team is already planning at least three more to follow.

Samuels also outlined a rough release schedule, saying that two entries should launch within any twelve-month window, suggesting that The Dark Pictures Anthology is a long-term venture for the team.

I’m so excited for this. Until Dawn is one of my favorites.
I've never played it personally but I've watched some playthroughs and it looks like a fun game. Even though I already know the ending, I'd be there day1 if they'd release it on Steam somehow (I actually tried playing it through PS Now but the quality was too bad and I couldn't be arsed to connect a DS4 controller to play with).

Looking forward to play this! Sadly we don’t have much variety in games recently. It’s either open-world or a shooter

Loved Until Dawn, I'm really glad this is coming to PC as well.

Wait, it's coming to Steam, right? :confused-face:
