Can Alex Survive in The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan?

Man of Medan Alex

Can Alex survive The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan? Or is he destined to die before he can tie the knot with Julia?

Man of Medan, the first entry in Supermassive’s Dark Pictures Anthology, puts all your characters in mortal peril. Taking place at sea, the game’s group of five, all in your control at some point, stumble across an abandoned WWII ship. The moment you step on board, you know things aren’t going to go well.

Some of Man of Medan‘s characters may live, some may die. Exactly how their fates play out depends on the choices you make. Alex can survive the game, as can all the characters, but his fate can hinge on the smallest thing.


Alex, Julia’s boyfriend and therefore one half of Man of Medan‘s scuba-diving team, can make it to the end of the game in one piece. There’s no single decision that will ensure he lives – failing quick time events will have a negative impact but again, not all failures will result in his demise.

Watch out, in particular, during the second half of the game, where he’s pursued by the pirates. Mess up too many quick time events and Julia will be dressing for a funeral, not a wedding.
