If you choose to be emphatic with Alex you’ll increase Brad and Alex’s relationship.

Fliss will eventually come on board and you’ll have a few conversations between her and Alex. You can choose to challenge her suggestions, which will lower the relationship between Alex and Fliss, or you can react accordingly to raise your relationship with her at the expense of the dive.

Man of Medan - Captain Issues

If you agree with Julia about Fliss then you’ll raise your relationship status with her.

You can head down below deck and talk to Brad, who is still reeling from having drunk all that beer with Conrad. You can either be reassuring or stern, which will raise or lower your relationship with him.

You can also examine a crashed ship painting on the wall in the kitchen area – the painting will reveal a brief premonition.

You’ll need to take the items on the side of the boat and you can either be playful or romantic with Julia to raise your relationship with her. Be sure to take the bangstick.

Just outside the room there’s a shell casing you can examine, wherein Alex deduces that the gunners fired on the wrecked rescue ship that they found earlier.

Brad will suggest going down the hole to find and fix the power to the radio room.

You can either choose to run or wait for Olson to finish his tirade when he begins to chase Alex and Julia. If you wait and do the heartbeat mini-game Olson will eventually turn away.

Junior will waylay Alex and Julia and ask him about the mist. You can then convince him that the rebreather can be used to extract the mist.

Junior can then be convinced to shoot himself, allowing Julia and Alex to escape.

The game will then switch back to Brad, and he’ll hop down into the hole and you’ll need to navigate through the bunks toward the locker where there’s a note.

Brad will encounter a crazed Olson.

You can choose to either reason with him or attack him – if you don’t attack Olson he will hammer the bulkhead doors and flood the cargo hold.

During the ensuing fight tell Julia to activate the lever and complete the quick-time event, which will result in Olson being cut in half by the rusty doors.
