In case you haven't heard, Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller from Remedy, the developer of successful titles including Max Payne and Max Payne 2. The game is due for the Xbox 360 and PC - and has been re-confirmed once again for September 2008.
The game puts the player in control of Alan Wake, a successful horror writer until he lost his muse and love (all very Silent Hill so far). He travels to Bright Falls in order to start afresh and come to terms with his loss. He writes a book about his nightmares (as you do as a successful author, as Stephen King will attest to) but unfortunately, these nightmare begin to come true.
