The second developer diary for upcoming The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, focuses on how the studio developed the oceans in the game. Supermassive Games’ next title is, of course, set onboard a haunted ghost ship, so naturally, water plays a huge part in the experience.
In this latest diary, the developers explain how they created the turbulent oceans, how they recorded various sound effects by renting a small fishing boat similar to the one found in the game. They captured sounds from many angles, and the day they went out to sea provided them with a wealth of content to draw inspiration from.
Man of Medan is scheduled for release this summer and is part of a larger anthology series called The Dark Pictures. As a huge fan of Supermassive Games and their previous titles, I’m keeping a close eye on this one.
