This is the psychological action thriller title that we've been waiting a very long time for. In an attempt to get his creative juices flowing once more, Alan's wife takes him to the secluded town of Bright Falls, where she promptly disappears and he find himself trapped inside a nightmare that is almost identical to his latest novel, which he can't remember writing.

Seeing as I'm a fan of games that have well rounded stories and an even bigger fan of thriller/horror titles, to say that I want this game would be a massive understatement. Remedy, the legends behind Max Payne, have promised to bring us a completely original engrossing plot thats brought to life through complex character interactions, challenging problem solving, and unique combat against some pretty scary enemies.
The story has been inspired by TV shows such as The X-Files, Twin Peaks, 24, and Lost, and as a result the narrative will take on an episodic format.
The game has a night and day cycle to it, where players will be able to interact with NPCs during the day and will have to keep their wits about them at night. From the screenshots that have been released so far, it looks like a lot of care and attention has gone into changing the atmosphere depending on the time of day.
Now onto the part I'm looking forward to the most, the ability to use light as a weapon against your enemies. I don't know whats going to be lurking in the shadows that'll shy away from your trusty flashlight, but I'm hoping it'll be something that'll rival the bizarre and creepy nature of the creatures found in the Silent Hill series.
Alan Wake offers you that wonderful mix of edge of your seat drama and hide behind the sofa scares that hopefully will be talked about for the foreseeable future and will be well worth £32.04.
