Control is a telekinetic shooter from Remedy

Max Payneologists will be happy to know that Remedy have revealed their new shooter, Control, which they describe as a "supernatural third-person action adventure". It looks a little bit Psi-ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, a little bit Inside and a little bit... I don't know? Come and take a look at this throbbing gun and explain to me what's happening.

Alan Wake killed by Roy Orbison

Remedy Entertainment's third-person spooker Alan Wake [official site] will receive a 90% discount on Steam this weekend, right before it gets pulled from stores - possibly forever. The Max Payne creators says Alan Wake has to go because its music licenses are expiring. Pop songs play at the end of each chapter, see, which means that Alan Wake was killed by a conspiracy including Roy…

Wakey Wakey: Old Alan Wake 2 Prototype Revealed

Remedy followed up their spooky-ooky shooter Alan Wake with the shorter, shootier semi-sequel Alan Wake's American Nightmare in 2012. Might a proper sequel, we wondered, follow next? Well, no. However, Remedy had started prototyping an Alan Wake 2 soon after finishing the first game, and whipped up a fancy gameplay video to pitch to publishers.

The Best Things In Death (Rally) Are Free This Weekend

I have to say, I appreciate games that let us know what they're all about upfront. These days, the industry revels in adding subtitles to subtitles, but there's something to be said for simplicity, grace, and handsome elegance. That in mind, DEATH RALLY. It's a rally in which everyone dies. Constantly. Beautiful. It is, of course, a remake of Remedy's top-down classic with a new…

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…

E3 09: Alan Wake, Lots Of Footage

Can a man called Alan really be an iconic action hero? Divining rods point to yes after watching this actual-proper-footage demo of Alan Wake on stage at last night's Microsoft presentation. The light-as-weapon really does look like an interesting system, and the general visuals seem to be an enormously high quality. Hard to really know if it's going to have the frights we'd expect from…

Alan Wake: Stirs In Sleep

The mighty Shacknews points out that Remedy have murmured on their official forums, assuring fans that psychological-thriller Alan Wake is still in development. We feel we owe you all a small heads up, and our apologies for lack of updates. This is just part of our psychological thriller, is it all real or imagined... Seriously, yes, we're still here and working hard on getting Alan…
