Over six years have passed since the success of the first Max Payne games but the people at Remedy Entertainment haven't just been resting on their laurels. Their latest game is styled; Not in the grit, smoke and whiskey of film noir, but in the autumnal hues of the Pacific Northwest. You play as Alan Wake, a writer on vacation in a small American town of Bright Falls with his wife, Alice. They are all ready to start relaxing in the quiet little town until that night, when Alice goes missing. While searching for her, Alan encounters pages of a book he can't remember writing, each page telling a terrifying tale of murder, mystery and intrigue… a story that is coming true.
