Release Date: Summer 2019
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Man of Medan involves a ghost ship adrift in the South Pacific that’s inhabited by supernatural horror.

A group of young Americans decides to investigate the WWII shipwreck. But what starts out as a “fun” excursion turns dark and deadly as a storm hits. You all become trapped on the ghost ship and discover its sinister history.

The “Medan” of the game’s title refers to the SS Orang Medan, a Dutch cargo ship that allegedly broadcast a distress call but when help arrived, everyone onboard was found dead, their eyes open and staring in terror. Did this really happen? I dunno — and apparently, no one else does, either.

This has me thinking about the Edmund Fitzgerald. All of its hands were lost as well, and no one knows exactly what happened.

Okay, back to Man of Medan. Onboard the ghost ship, the adventurers are subjected to intense stress and horror. They must find a way to escape the ship and its sinister history before it’s too late.

Man of Medan is to be released in Summer 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
