Alan Wake

A Remedy Entertainment managed to use a quote from author Stephen King for $1, using it to open Alan Wake – one of his greatest classics and which will receive a sequel soon. Sam Lake, the game’s screenwriter, states that he wanted the beginning of the game to have a sentence from the writer – considering the atmosphere that follows and also the protagonist’s role in the middle of it.

According to Lake, Stephen King was extremely generous and ceded the rights for this trifle, making it possible for them to impact players right away at very little cost. The game opens with a quote from him to Entertainment Weekly in 2008, which reads “Nightmares exist outside of logic and there is little fun in explanations; they are antithetical to the poetry of fear. In a horror story, the victim is left wondering why – but there can be no explanation and there shouldn’t be. The unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest and is what we will remember in the end.”

A new chapter for Alan Wake

After his brief return in a Control DLC, the author will return for a new story on October 17, 2023. In AW2, we will see the character acting in the dark world while having help from the “real world” side, with the police Anderson saga. It was not revealed how she ends up getting involved in the whole story, leaving time to reveal what can happen to the two heroes during the adventure.
