Coming soon from Supermassive Games is Man of Medan, the first installment of the studio’s new “Dark Pictures” anthology series of games. The latest trailer, which can be viewed above, is a bit of a formal introduction to the concept, rolling out the red carpet for the Curator, a mysterious man who seems to be serving as “host” of this anthology.
The Curator has stories of all kinds and Man of Medan is just the first you will get to play through. Some footage from the game and a brief introduction to its plot are also present in this short trailer, but the biggest reveals will have to wait until the game’s much-awaited August 30th release date is upon us.
In Man of Medan, a group set sail on a holiday diving trip in search of a rumored World War II wreckage in the South Pacific. However, as the day unfolds and a life-threatening storm rolls in, their trip soon turns into a battle for survival.
This title is the first entry in a series of standalone cinematic horror games in the Dark Pictures anthology. Players are dropped into a choose-your-own-adventure experience and given the opportunity to unravel the story as they see fit, but the choices that are made may come with both good and bad outcomes, depending on how the narrative ultimately plays out.
