The gods are shining down on Remedy this week. After a big unveiling of their newest game during Microsoft’s Xbox One conference, Quantum Break, the legendary bullet-friendly developer is now presenting their entire Alan Wake anthology for whatever amount you want to pay for it. Sam Lake, the company’s creative director, also gives us a heads up on where the franchise is going. Spoilers: nowhere any time soon.
I was deeply in like with Alan Wake when it landed three years ago as an under-promoted and super quirky Twin Peaks-inspired action-adventure. The story kept me going and going, despite the tragically under-cooked gameplay. I’m serious: the story alone is completely worth it and the presentation is nearly flawless. It’s just… playing the game. Of course, at a price you can call your own, I see no issue with giving the game another try on my PC. Not only do you get the base game, but you get its quasi-sequel American Nightmare as well on top of a bunch of bonus material and soundtracks. Word.
