Last year, the team at Supermassive Games and publisher Bandai Namco embarked on an ambitious journey with an anthology series, dubbed The Dark Pictures Anthology, of multiple smaller titles, with each spanning a different setting and genre of horror. They would follow the same format and gameplay structure of the developer’s very successful Until Dawn, of a narrative-driven choose-your-own-adventure game. Well, it seems at least the first entry in the series, Man of Medan, managed to make a mark.

As reported by GamesIndustry, Bandai Namco have confirmed that Man of Medan has managed to sell over 1 million copies. No breakdowns were given for platforms or digital vs physical, but it seems a respectable number and a nice start for the series. Bandai Namco’s Hervé Hoerdt spoke well of the game, saying that they think it will become more successful with time as more volumes of the anthology come, such as the upcoming Little Hope, the second game in the franchise.

“It’s tricky to make people understand it’s an anthology when you have only one volume,” he said. “This is why we’re looking so much forward to the release of the second one and then be able to start discussing potential new volumes, because you need to ground this ‘anthology’ wording. Anthology doesn’t mean anything when you have only one box on your shelf, or one digital game in your library. Each volume will grow the audience.

“There’s a lot of ambition for us in this series. There are some regions where we think we can please some more fans, namely in the US and in Asia. I think there’s room for growth. The quality of the execution and the experience, [as well as] the genre, make us think that there is more potential.”

Man of Medan is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It also became available on Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One this month. The next game, Little Hope, will release on October 30th for all the same platforms.
