Supermassive Games’ first horror title, Until Dawn, featured a tracker that showed players each character’s emotion throughout the game. While they didn’t really do too much with it, a similar feature can be found in their newest game, Man of Medan. Here is everything you need to know about what traits are and how to change them in Man of Medan.
Just like in Until Dawn, Man of Medan allows players to control multiple people throughout the narrative. In total, there are five playable characters: Julia, Brad, Alex, Fliss, and Conrad.
Each of these characters will have unique personalities. These personalities lend into the game’s mechanic, known as traits.
What Traits Are & How to Change Them in Man of Medan
These traits represent ways the characters may act, ranging from altruistic to insecure to selfish and so on.
Essentially, traits are words that represent each character’s personality.
These traits are set to each person at the start of the game but can change throughout.
The only way for them to change in-game is to select dialogue choices and act in a way that would be contradictory to the original characteristic.
Is one of the characters selfish? Save someone or give up an item and their trait will adjust accordingly.
Depending on what trait you’re trying to change, some characters may require more work than others.
- Traits describe each character’s personality
- These include being altruistic, insecure, selfish, guarded, eager etc.
- They can be changed through dialogue and actions
- Some characters may take more to change than others
That is everything you need to know about what traits are and how to change them in Man of Medan.
