The Dark Pictures Anthology from Supermassive Games kicks off next year, and the first title, Man of Medan, is looking shipshape. Bandai Namco has released the first in a series of developer diaries for the spiritual successor to Until Dawn, and it sounds like the environment is getting plenty of attention.

Artists and designers chime in to talk about creating a creepy setting for the cast of characters to navigate, but also ensuring a surprising level of authenticity. The degradation of the ship has been exaggerated, but is based on real research, and the sound reverb in each room has been recreated to make sure the locations are suitably eerie.
