Real Time Worlds have updated their dev blog at IGN.
"It's a scary, frightening thing to let your children out into the world – even if they are armed with super-strength and a rocket launcher. So just after the release of the "Crackdown" demo this Tuesday, we here at Realtime Worlds were hovering around our computers, waiting to see what the world thought of our massive, superhuman, gun-wielding baby.
Apparently, the verdict is in and you guys are LOVING it! We've loved it for years now, of course, but it's both exciting and thrilling to read all the positive feedback from gamers actually playing the game! So a big, rocket-propelled "thank you" to all who downloaded the demo and put some time into the streets of Pacific City. We can't wait for you all to get your hands on the final game on Feb. 20!"
At the time of writing, the game, which once had more than 55,000 players on Steam alone, now has just 389.
Remedy has Alan Wake merch on sale, including a pretty blue thermos. Unfortunately, things haven’t gone according to plan, and many players who want a thermos find themselves without one, though it does appear that Remedy is attempting to fix things. Nevertheless, it has resulted in a lot of upset, illustrating just how much the thermos means to Alan Wake fans.
