Re: New Alan Wake at the Video Game Awards 2011 !

So I'm guessing this will be about Alan Wake's escape from the Dark Place? The Writer at the ended hinted at the Return, and Return was flashed in the teaser trailer. Since Alan Wake is clearly still in the Dark Place, my guess is that to escape he will have to go through himself. I think the game will take place with Alan going through the works of fiction he has created, but dark and twisted much like his memories of Bright Falls were. I think this will include episodes of Night Springs, but hell, maybe we'll get an episode set in one of Alex Casey's books for all we know. Anyway, that's all guesswork, I am fairly certain this game will be about Alan's struggle to get out of the Dark Place though.

It's so confusing. I thought he'd almost got out of the dark place by the end of 'The Writer'. Of course we haven't seen him surface on the lake, so you might be right in your assumption.

Thing is, I was expecting 'Return' to be AW2. Since this new game isn't AW2, I'm seriously wondering if this story will be a chronological continuation of what we've already seen in AW and the DLC.

"Following a typical nightmare pattern, I was late, desperately trying to reach my destination – a lighthouse – for some urgent reason I couldn’t remember."

To clarify that a little bit, he didn't get out of there, but he did manage to regain control of himself (as opposed to sinking so deep in there that he would've been completely lost) -- it was a definite improvement in his circumstances, but he was still stuck in there. =)

At Remedy we've always been fairly good at keeping our secrets - we don't have a tendency to leak info before it's ment to be public. :)

You guys at Remedy are awesome. When I started playing the Max Payne games, I was amazed. And because of MP2, I have discovered a great band. I'm glad that I have found Alan Wake. Ever since I have played it, it's all I can think about. I love it more than any other game I have ever played. I can wait forever for AW2. And as for the XBLA game, you can bet I will get it in a flash.

Re: New Alan Wake at the Video Game Awards 2011 !

I was just watching a trailer on my Alan Wake LCE DVD and I saw where Alan was standing on a snow covered mountain. The environment was vast and very amazing. It would be great to see this in the XBLA game or the second Alan Wake game. I'm guessing that this was cut because of technical reasons or changes in the final story/plot?

jriley0035 yeah, you could actually walk on top of that mountain earlier when we were still exploring the open world design. The same mountain is still in the game - it's actually right next to the dam. The cut was for design reasons.

Re: New Alan Wake at the Video Game Awards 2011 !

I just saw that news on a french video game site :

http://www.gameblog.fr/news_26287_ke...ts-alan-wake-2

I Google trad it :

If you do not already know, the next weekend a plethora of new titles will be revealed for the first time on video at Spike TV Video Game Awards, VGA. Among them, Alan Wake: Nightsprings, the title of Remedy to be released on Xbox Live Arcade. But if you believe Geoff Keighley who spoke on Major Nelson's blog, the presenter of the evening for VGA, it is a very ambitious title despite its format "downloadable"

Quote:
“I’ve seen the game, seen the trailer we’re showing and even though it’s going to be a downloadable game, it’s not a small game,” said Keighley.
“It effectively is, I think, Alan Wake 2 when you really look at it and what they’re doing with that game. It’s really ambitious, beautiful technology and I think people are really going to be excited about it.”
See you next Saturday to find out more!


Very exciting right ?

Well, I really don't want to talk about this before the VGAs. We've got all sorts of things lined up and I don't want to steal anybody's thunder. I'm very glad that he's excited about it, he's obviously saying very nice things and we're proud of the game!

However, I think that since he invokes the "Alan Wake 2" name, I should reiterate what we've said all along: this new game is not Alan Wake 2, and if we intended it to be that, we'd have named it that. (I know he means it as a compliment, and I appreciate that, I just don't want there to be any confusion about it.)

As you guessed, I can't really talk about it. Sorry, it's just that we have a plan for when we talk about things, and if I spoke out of turn, I'd ruin a lot of work. (The upside of all this is that we've got a lot of pretty serious coverage coming up, though, so you'll hear quite a bit about the game soon!)

Yeah, we're definitely not going to answer something like that.

There's only a couple of days left until the official announcement, it's best to wait till that day as everything we're going to say at this moment will be in that announcement.
