1st Dev Diary Video Released for The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan
Today, Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe released the first development diary for their upcoming horror game, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan. In this first development diary, the developers comment about the creation of one of the most important assets of the game, the ghost ship.
In the video, the developers comment on how it was a challenge to make the ghost ship – being the main location of the game – look real, since it is unclear how an abandoned ship would look like after being adrift in a lot of years.
Check out the Dev diary video of The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, featuring a cinematic video with commentary form the developers:
In the first Dev-diary, the Supermassive Games team talk about everything from the authentic audio of the door latches, the way sound reverberates inside the ship to the concept and influences behind the creation of the ship. Every detail was designed in order to give players the most terrifying and atmospheric experience possible.
