is an absolute nightmare...
With the seemingly piss-poor
adaptation of Max
Payne currently showing in your local cinema, it comes
as a reminder of Remedy Entertainmentís next big offering:
the long-awaited Alan
Wake. After being in development for what seems like an
eternity, itís looking like weíll be seeing this pretty
little survival horror surface sometime in the first half of
the new year. Well, hopefully, anyway.
An exact date is yet to be set. When asked for more
information on this, the team at Remedy have been replying
with "when itís ready."
The basic storyline goes something
like this. Bloke writes best selling book. Bloke loses muse.
Bloke starts suffering from insomnia (see, his name is A.
Wake. As in awake. Genius). Bloke goes to clinic in a quiet
little town. Bloke starts having nightmares. Nightmares
become reality. Shit goes down.
Sounds pretty good to me.
Being nightmares, they aren't too keen
on light, so this will be one of the main weapons at
Alanís disposal. Expect lots of swish cinematic sequences,
free-roaming environments and token driving elements; but,
unfortunately, no multiplayer. The trailers released earlier
this year have looked pretty stunning, but after taking so
much time developing Alan
Wake, do Remedy run the risk of seeming outdated when
the game is finally released? Hopefully, we shall find out
pretty damn soon.
