The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan is an interactive drama survival horror video game developed by Supermassive Games and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It is the first of eight planned installments in The Dark Pictures Anthology series, and was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 30 August 2019.
The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is a survival horror video game viewed from a third-person perspective in which single players or multiplayers assume control of five different characters that become trapped on board of a ghost ship. Players are required to make decisions based on their character's "head" or their "heart", or can choose for them to do nothing, whilst selecting between different options when interacting with other characters. The selection of options are stylised as a compass, which is both representative of the characters' "moral compass" and reflective of the games nautical themes.
