The main focus of Alan Wake is its story and this really shows. You play Alan Wake, a bestselling author who is suffering from a severe case of writers block. To give him some time off, he and his wife travel to the town of Bright Falls, a tiny town in the Pacific Northwest where he intends to relax and hopefully get his groove back.
Unfortunately, this isn’t to be, shortly after arrival, he wakes up a week later in a car accident with no memory of how he got there or where his wife has disappeared to. Soon he is avoiding the police while also trying to fight off shadowy figures clad in darkness.
