While they are on their journey their relaxing, adventurous holiday takes a turn for the worse when a massive storm rolls in and terrorizes their boat.

Designers of the game used multiple experiments to make the effects in Man of Medan as realistic as possible. Including the sounds and movements of the boat, the storm, and the ocean. Designers even went so far as to make sure the lighting effects were spot on as the ship’s in-game crew members use their flashlights underneath the ocean’s surface.
