Ah, Supermassive Games – after all those spin-offs, we’d forgotten your unique brand of campy horror. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan looks every inch the Until Dawn successor in this gameplay demo from Gamescom 2018, trading on daft dialogue exchanges and borderline unfair jump scares. We love it already.
The gameplay seems similar to its cult PlayStation 4 exclusive, with an emphasis on exploration and decision making. The really exciting thing is that this is the first in a series, with the Guildford developer promising more spooky stories in due time. Just one question, though: what is going on with Fliss’ clothes? The poor girl’s barely wearing anything at all!
