Alan Wake 2 Developer Is Interested In Working On A Dark Gothic Fantasy Game
Alan Wake 2 developer, Remedy Entertainment, is interested in working on a big budget, dark gothic fantasy game.
Speaking during an interview, Sam Lake, Remedy Entertainment creative director and Alan Wake 2 director, mentioned that he has other stories he has always wanted to tell, one of which is a “crazy”, big budget, dark gothic fantasy game concept that he has yet to use.
According to Lake, the concept would make for a great story. We certainly hope he gets the opportunity to make such a game. His unique and artistic take on storytelling and the convergence of interactive and non-interactive mediums is quite bold and fascinating. It would be interesting to see how it works within a dark gothic fantasy setting.
Remedy Entertainment’s latest release, Alan Wake 2, is a 2023 survival horror game that is a sequel to the original Alan Wake. The game centers on the character Alan Wake, a best-selling horror novelist, who has been trapped in an alternate dimension for 13 years. To escape, he writes a horror story featuring an FBI agent named Saga Anderson. Alan Wake 2 was released on October 27, 2023, for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S.
In contrast to the first Alan Wake game, which was an action-adventure game with horror elements, Alan Wake II is a survival horror game played from a third-person perspective. Players can take on the roles of Alan Wake or Saga Anderson in separate single-player stories, which can be played in any order, with Saga featured in the opening sequence and Alan in the ending sequence.
Wake and Anderson explore environments and combat adversaries using firearms and a flashlight. The flashlight can be focused on enemies in order to weaken them before using firearms, but doing so drains its battery. Players must manage their limited supply of batteries and ammunition strategically in order to survive. Both characters can also perform dodge maneuvers to avoid close-range attacks.
