Introducing The Dark Pictures Anthology, From The Creators of Until Dawn

All playable characters can live... and all can die. A new series of standalone cinematic horror games with the first installment, Man of Medan, launching next year

Hi there, I’m Pete Samuels, CEO and Executive Producer at Supermassive Games. I am really excited to be talking to you today about The Dark Pictures Anthology – a series of stand-alone, cinematic branching horror games. The first in the series is called Man of Medan and is launching in 2019.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan

At Supermassive, we have a passion to deliver powerful cinematic stories and we’re following on from titles like Until Dawn and The Inpatient by telling new horror stories that we expect the fans will want to play. Each game in the series will feature a brand new story, setting, and characters. The Anthology format gives us the opportunity to tap into a variety of horror sub-genres. We’ve identified 39 that we’d love to represent in the Anthology, but that would take some time!

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan

The story of Man of Medan starts off on a dive boat in the South Pacific. With a rumoured WWII wreck to find, and plenty of on-deck partying to be had, our group of 4 young Americans and their skipper Fliss get ready for what should be the trip of a lifetime…but it doesn’t go quite to plan. As the day unfolds, and a storm rolls in, they find themselves trapped on board a ghost ship. Subjected to unimaginable stress and terror, they must try to find a way to escape the ship and its sinister history.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan

Man of Medan, like all the games in the Dark Pictures Anthology, is hugely replayable. In fact there is more branching in Man of Medan than any of our previous games. There are multiple endings and multiple scenarios based on the decisions you make in the game. Be careful though as all the playable characters can live, and any and all of them can die, depending on the choices you make.

Through the protagonists eyes you will uncover the secrets of the mystery surrounding the ill-fated boat. Figuring this out can save their lives – but whether or not they all escape is up to you.

Creating this project has been massively exciting for us and we can’t wait for people to start playing Man of Medan and the subsequent games in The Dark Pictures Anthology.

    Until Dawn was one of my favorite games on the PS4 so far (though there are many). I can’t wait for this.

  • Wow. So you guys have a roadmap for the PS5 too. I guess these will be spiritual successors to Until Dawn. On another note, I’d love Supermassive to tackle a non-horrifying plot.

    • How have you come to the conclusion that Supermassive has a roadmap for the PS5? It’s possible the three games are in development at the same time and won’t release too far apart from one another or the next generation of consoles could still be far off. By the way, if you didn’t realize it the anthology is for PC and Xbox One as well.

    • Agreed! This sounds like another amazing game!

  • This is fantastic. I knew you you guys are brewing up something new for PlayStation. You guys do such good work that I know I will be ready for you series.

    Yooooooooooooo! Awesome.

    Loved Until Dawn so will most definitely give this a shot. The facial animation seems a step down from Until Dawn. Hopefully they can fix that before release.

    • There is nothing to fix,these games will be multiplatform which means no help from Sony which means no facial animations on the lvl of Until Dawn.What you see is probably what you’ll get.

    • Loved Until Dawn! Can’t wait

  • Until dawn was one of my favorite game this generation. This one looks good too ill play it

    I’d prefer a gamemovie (just like gamebooks). A movie where you make the decisions. It would be awesome!!
    Even better if we can vote with our phone, so when we are multiple people, it goes to the most popular choice. :P

    • Have you played Hidden Agenda? It’s also by Supermassive, and you vote for decisions using your phone.

  • Can I just subscribe now and get them all as they come out? :)

  • Namco is publishing it?…so these games won’t be exclusive to PS4,well I’m already a lil disappointed but looks good…reminded me of an old horror movie where they were the whole movie on a decrepit ship as well.

  • Supermassive Games please REDO Bravo Team.
