Wake Sale: Alan Wake Now Humbled And Bundled

By Craig Pearson on May 23rd, 2013.


Do you have between one and infinity dollars? Are you waiting for Alan Wake to be ‘bundled’ up with the expansion and extra materials, where the costs are distributed between the developers and charity? Those are some very specific conditions you have there. Gaming welcomes you, but if that’s your criteria for every game then you might want to relax it a bit. Just buy games in sales and give money to charity, okay? This week’s Humble Bundle sale presents Alan Wake, Remedy’s love letter to Stephen King novels and lovely naps. But it’s more of a nap that a baby has, where it wakes up screaming and smelling of poo, because the bundle also marks the end of Remedy’s work on an Alan Wake sequel.

Wot I Think: Alan Wake’s American Nightmare

By Adam Smith on May 29th, 2012.

All I do, is sit down at the typewriter, and start hittin' the keys. Getting them in the right order, that's the trick. That's the trick.

It took Alan Wake ages to find his way to PC but his second adventure arrived almost immediately after its XBLA release. At this rate, the planned full-blown sequel will arrive in 2007, long before it surfaces on the Microbox 7.20. But if American Nightmare isn’t a sequel, what is it? An arcade, action-orientated spinoff? An experimental short story? A fever dream? Expect spoilers for the first game as I tell you wot I think.

By Nathan Grayson on May 9th, 2012.

He has a new shirt! Sequel: justified.

Everyone, hold onto your hats. I have some shocking and unbelievable news for you, and they may use your brief window of vulnerability as a chance to escape. So, remember when Alan Wake’s American Nightmare not-so-silently planted its flag of star-spangled terror in Steam’s registry? Turns out, that wasn’t just some incredibly unlikely fluke that had to pass across the desks of many intelligent people! It is, in fact, coming to PC – on May 22 no less. This has probably never happened.

Good Snooze: Alan Wake’s American Nightmare On PC

By Craig Pearson on April 24th, 2012.

Just pretend they're puppies, Richard
Following a lengthy beta test on the Xbox 360, Alan Wake did rather well on PC. So well that the game’s so far console-only expansion, American Nightmare, will be snort-waking and grasping for its PC teddy bear soon. I learned this in a dream, where I was running through a forest with a flashlight, looking for my PC. When I found it, in a little hollow, it was surrounded by squirrels who appeared to be worshiping it. On the screen was a video of a squirrel on a feeder, spinning around and around and around, the surrounding squirrels were all rapt. Then I was naked for some reason. When I woke, my PC was open at website DSOGaming, where they’ve discovered that the expansion had recently been added to the Tome of Games Most Foule Steam’s Registry, and it will be bringing about the Time of Blood, Screams, and LEGO coming out soon.
