The Devs of Dark Pictures Anthology Show Us How to Design a Ghost Ship

By Chewie, 13 days ago
The Dark Pictures - Man Of Medan is the first in a horror anthology series from Supermassive Games of Until Dawn success. Since being revealed at Gamescom we've seen an atmospheric trailer and conducted an exclusive interview with the devs. Now we get the first in a series of developer diaries, this time focusing on design elements to create a suitably creepy ghost ship. First, we hear from the Production Designer about the rust and decay seen in the abandoned vessel. Then, the Audio Director tells us how the team got access to a real ship to record suitable sound effects and accurate reverb. Finally, the Art Director explains how lighting was cleverly designed by using holes in the roof and walls to create leaked ambient light and shadows.


The Dark Pictures - Man Of Medan is due in 2019.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the The Dark Pictures - Man Of Medan achievements.
