The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan Full Walkthrough — Pressure
This episode becomes available only in case Brad and Fliss were not delusional at the end of the ‘’Ritual’’: Brad had a gas mask while Fliss managed to breathe fresh air. In this case, the characters decide to act together and go searching for their friends.
Once you have control over Fliss (you’ll play for her in any case), move forward until you reach the room with an ascent to the next tier. Before you do something else, go towards the cell to find a hidden secret – a note lying next to the corpse.
Climb upside with Brad’ help and examine an old shovel in the corner – you’ll need this information later. Go to the next room and look at the broken staircase leading up and the locked grate on the floor.
Return to the previous room and examine the open grate through which you can jump to the lower tier. The dialogue decides who goes down - say nothing to let Brad descend. If you wish to do everything yourself, choose ‘’Confident’’.
Both scenarios are similar, but we’ll still analyze each one separately:
Fliss goes down
If Fliss volunteers for this mission, her life will be under threat in this episode. Use QTE force to open the door in the adjacent room – water will pour out of the opening and start flooding the room.
Here, the information about the old shovel will come in handy – Brad will run to get the instrument and wait for your orders. You should order him twice to hit the hinges (option ‘’Insistent’’) or Fliss will die, choking in the rising water.
Brad goes down
Wait until your companion opens the treacherous door and get ready to argue with Brad (he will ask to hit the lock) for his own good – expect a slight deterioration in your relationship. Hit the old hinges twice to save your friend’s life. Otherwise, Alex’ brother will drown.
Thanks to the rising water, Fliss and Brad (or one of them if you let the hero die) will reach the broken stairs and get out onto the upper deck where they will continue searching for their friends.
