The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan Full Walkthrough — Flooded

Detailed walkthrough of all Man of Medan episodes: achievements, collectibles, and scenarios

When the water rushes out of the gate which was opened by Olson who went mad due to the hallucinogenic gas, it will not only knock down the hero (the same character as in the previous episode) but also bring one of the characters who survived in the chapter ‘’Junior’’ to the cargo compartment number 3.

An unequal fight will follow between the protagonist and the leader of fishermen (the opponent has a hammer). The hero’s life and the fate of the distributor cover depend on this fight – Olson will die in any scenario. As this is the decisive QTE battle, we’ll analyze it step by step.

Frankly, you can relax at the beginning of the battle – you are not obliged to grab Olson by the ankles (first button press). However, the sliding distributor cover (second button press) should be stopped or it will be destroyed even if you successfully complete the segment.

When the character stands with his back to the boxes with Manchurian Gold (third button press), Olson will swing his hammer. Regardless of the speed of your reaction, the enemy will break the container with chemicals – either after the third button press (if you fail) or after the fourth one (if you succeed).

Next, Olson will try to hit the hero at the face or grab the heroine by the throat (fifth button press). With proper skills, the protagonist will have a chance to counterattack. In the opposite case, he/she will suffer damage. There’s not much difference as the ship will sway again and the opponents will find themselves in equal position.

After this, the friendly character who survived the chapter ‘’Junior’’ will get ready to pull the lever responsible for the vertical refrigerator door in the middle of the room. Regardless of your command, your ally will activate the mechanism just when the hero is in danger of being smashed.

To stay alive, you’ll have to throw off Olson (sixth button press – quickly poke the key) and then dodge the hands of the mad fisherman (seventh button press). If you fail at any of these two inputs, the protagonist will die.

Thus, there’s a scenario in which neither the hero, nor the distributor cover are able to make it to the end of the chapter. This will not happen if you successfully pass the QTE segment. At this point, the gameplay part of Man of Medan is concluded: you’ll now have to watch the consequences of the decisions you made during the game.
