Dark Pictures: Man of Medan | About the

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is an interactive film from Until Dawn authors from Supermassive Games. The game takes place on an abandoned ship since the Second World War. In the latest issue of their diaries, the developers told how they managed to make the vessel believable and frightening.

According to the authors, they painstakingly chose camera angles, lighting and other details to create the right atmosphere. After studying materials about the aging of ships, Supermassive tried to convincingly portray rusty vehicles. In addition, the team visited a real old ship and recorded there the sounds of doors, mechanisms, strikes, and so on.

Separately, the developers talked about lighting. So that you could make out what is happening in dark rooms, developers have made holes in the walls and ceilings through which light penetrates into the compartments. Not without cinema magic: in some places additional light is used, like on a film set, it creates the necessary mood and emphasizes the images of the characters.

Man of Medan will appear on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2019. This is just the first game from the Dark Pictures anthology, containing a series of stand-alone stories.

At the exhibition "IgroMir 2018" Yevgeny Baranov tried the game personally. His impressions are set out in our preview.
