Alan Wake Uncovers Art And Writes Exposition

Friday, February 19th, 2010

"It was a beautiful place. I told myself I could rest here."

(VG247) It has been years since Alan Wake was first announced and now the official cover art has been revealed with the beginning of the game being leaked to the Internet. Though the cover art looks like a stereotypical scary movie poster, the artists give the right impression; making the consumer wonder what is in the dark. The writer for Alan Wake, Sam Lake, likes to believe there is actually a big screen release possibility for future stories involving the world of Alan.

Developed by Remedy Studios and published by Microsoft, the game is due out in late May; the 18th for the Americas and the 21st for Europe. We probably won’t see a demo until the beginning of May, but I’ll be looking forward to it.

From GameBlog.FR, the video leak reveals a few early spoilers for those who want to keep all the secrets under wraps but should be a good video to watch for those that are on the fence about the game. During the six minute video, Alan shows up to the creepy small town, Bright Falls, that is just waiting to reveal its inner demon. Ironic name for a town like this, eh? Watch the 5:42 leaked video below:

Alan Wake

(IGN) Alan Wake has been a game that has been coming out for about 4 years now. At E3 2009, the first gameplay trailer was released for the game however the brightness of that world has become a grim and dark place. In a foot race, Alan’s story passes through a dark police chase that includes some mysterious car accidents that seem to have been caused by nature.

With Alan being his own narrator to this story, it feels truly for the first time that a book and video game could merge into one new and innovative gameplay experience. In different trailers before, Alan has manipulated lights to use them as weapons against this unknown force but it seems in this trailer that the tides have turned as police and government are using the lights against him. Wake’s imagination seems to pass between his mind and reality.
