ANALYSIS: How Alan Wake survived

It was E3 2005 when Alan Wake was first unveiled.

The ambitious story-driven thriller was from Remedy, the studio behind Max Payne. A series it had just sold to Rockstar for $45m.

“After Max Payne, we could have sat on a beach sipping cocktails for quite some time,” Remedy’s head of franchise development Oskari Häkkinen tells MCV.

“But our hearts were in making games, not sipping cocktails. So we re-invested that money into our next game, which was Alan Wake.”

The story is too old to be commented.

alan wake has lost his way. he is now a generic survival horror. more story/adventure less boring shooting... we have enough of them

They should've just stayed on the beach sipping cocktails instead.
