I have a Patreon. Please consider signing up for it. It really helps me out moving forward.




Man of Medan is the first in a planned series of games under the title of "The Dark Pictures Anthology." Much like Until Dawn, a previous game developed by Supermassive a few years ago, Man of Medan is an interactive horror story, where the decisions you make and the actions you take will determine how the story plays out.

I'm going into this game blind, so I do not have many details I can offer you about the plot, but as I understand it at this time, the story is about a group of divers that find themselves exploring the wreckage of a ship from the 1940's. They attempt to uncover the mysterious history of the ship, and also try not to get killed by... whatever might actually be happening here. I don't know, and that's part of the fun! Come watch me totally not get scared by this game.

For more information on the legend this game is loosely based on, please watch Part 0. And while you're at it, please also consider watching my playthrough of Until Dawn if you haven't already. Or hey, watch it again. Tis the season for spooky, after all.

A COUPLE NOTES

-This is a BLIND PLAYTHROUGH which means I have not been spoiled on this game. Please be considerate about keeping it this way by not sharing any game spoilers in this thread, tagged or untagged.

-I was fairly thorough with my playthrough of Until Dawn, trying to offer a very complete experience for the viewer by showing things I missed, glimpses of alternate paths, and sharing my thoughts/theories on where the game was headed. I can't promise I will be doing this for this game, as I have already made a few discoveries about the gameplay itself that might make things difficult, but I will try to do my best!

-Despite the lack of updates, I am still doing playthroughs of Tony Hawk's Underground 2 and a co-op playthrough of the We Were Here Trilogy with my friend, P0larmic.

Nonsense. I have not yet begun to defile myself.



This game kind of felt like "What if Until Dawn but it didn't have a budget for real actors." Still had its charm

I don't think you really need big notable actors for a game like this. It always felt like part of the charm of horror movies was having a lot of unknowns in them, which may or may not have been the result of smaller budgets as well.

Ahhh ballet

I've been looking forward to this ever since the tease at the end of Until Dawn. Funny that you mentioned Little Hope in the video, that actually released today.

Much, much more.

I've been looking forward to this one! I only caught your Until Dawn playthrough right at the tail end, so I didn't really pop into that thread.

Question - on the relationships screen, it looks like you can press X to get more details per character, is that the case? Or am I reading the UI wrong?

I'll actually have to check that out. I assumed that was not the case so I didn't even try, but I'll confirm it in the near future for sure.

Funny you mentioned playing based on displayed characteristics, because that is exactly what the AI does. To put it in more context, the AI make choices that the other players would've made if you don't play alone.

You're correct. It shows which action and how it affects the relationship but not by how much. Relationship points is one of the factor that determines the AI's decisions, so this is actually useful

I didn't fight through two wars to rule
I fought for the future of the world

And the right to have hot tea whenever I wanted

Well, what excellent timing. Hope you have fun with it.
