The team behind the PlayStation 4 horror adventure game "Until Dawn" is working on a series of free-standing, kinematic branch game called The Dark Pictures Anthology, Supermassive Games, CEO Pete Samuels, said on Tuesday.
The first in the series, which comes to PlayStation4, Windows PC and Xbox One, is called Man of Medan and is launching next year.
"At Supermassive, we have a passion for delivering powerful film stories, and we are following on from titles like" Until Dawn "and" The Inpatient "by telling new horror stories that we expect the fans to play," writes Samuels. "Each game in the series will contain a whole new story, setting and character. The Anthology & # 39; format allows us to tap into a number of horror subgeners. We have identified 39 that we would like to represent in anthology, but it will take some time! "
In Man of Medan, the players want to explore the store of a group of four young Americans and their skipper when heading out to a South Pacific dive boat looking for a rumor of WWII- wrecks. The game, Samuel's writing, is meant to be "hugely replayable."
"In fact, there is more branch in Man of Medan than any of our previous games," he wrote. "There are more endings and more scenarios based on the decisions you make in the game. Be careful as all playable characters can live and everyone can die, depending on what choices you make."
