The Dark Pictures Anthology - Supermassive Games (Until Dawn) - 2019

Recommended Posts

Just announced at GamesCom. After a string of misfires it looks like Supermassive Games are returning to the successful Until Dawn formula for an anthology of stand-alone horror games where your decisions affect the narrative outcome and everyone can live/die etc

 

Namco Bandai are publishing, so Xbox and PC owners to get to join in this time. The first story in the anthology is called Man of Medan and is due for release next year.

 

Quote

 


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.

 

 

I really enjoyed Until Dawn so I'm cautiously in. I think a lot of people were requesting that they basically do a series of stand-alone games where each focuses on a specific horror sub-genre so it looks like they were paying attention.

Until Dawn was grand. Recently played through it again with a friend: I was in control of the controller (she's not good with the analogue sticks *insert joke here*) and she was in charge of decisions. Had an absolute blast, especially just observing her reactions and decision making ("I hate her, can we get her to die?").

 

So yeah, give me more like Until Dawn and I'm there day one.

If they really knew their horror it would be in a portmanteau format with an overarching game set in er... a haunted shoe shop, where a creepy shop clerk has a terrifying story about every pair of spooky shoes. 

 

It's a work in progress, alright!

On the Inside Xbox stream they said they were hoping to get two stories out per year, each in a different horror sub-genre. So each story is likely to be considerably shorter than Until Dawn was, but more variety on a more frequent basis. And presumably cheaper?

A bit like that last episode of Black Mirror, except not based around shoes.
