"Remedy's done a great job of mixing elements of written work, television, and video games to create an experience full of scares, laughs, and thrills that's just as fun to play as it is to watch." - IGN.com
"...it’s still a genuinely skin-twitching survival game with an original and tense twist to the combat." - PCgamer.com
The critically acclaimed and BAFTA nominated, TIME magazine Game of the Year Alan Wake, finally comes to PC! From Remedy, the creators of Max Payne arrives a heart pounding Psychological Action Thriller, further refined and enhanced for the PC. The game comes with two special episodes, The Signal and The Writer.
When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.
Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.
With the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller, Alan Wake’s intense atmosphere, deep and multilayered story, and exceptionally tense combat sequences provide players with an entertaining and original gaming experience.

This game have surprised me. The story is very awesome, and the gameplay is innovative. If you don't like horror videogames, don't worry: it's not horror, there are 2-3 scenes. It's separated in episodes, and it's a great idea, because if you play a new episode after 2 weeks, it will reminds you what's happened. And the PC port of this game is perfect.

Alan Wake really surprised me. I am not a big fan of horror games. I picked this up as a friend recommended it and I haven't looked back since. This game is more of a thriller than a horror. I scare easily, I jump when things go bump and this game had me chasing shadows again, but all while being fun.
It's not your typical, if we scare them our job is done thriller, this game has depth. Wake is a game really well written, the dialogue is funny and witty. Alan himself is a writer going through a rough patch, and he's not afraid to moan about it. His cynicism and empathy is actually charming and I really warmed to him as a character early, along with his unconventional sidekick/agent.
It's a game driven by it's mechanics and story telling. Nothing is ever really scary except the unknown and this game literally leaves you in the dark. However, this is the only game I have played in a long while that made me want to explore and find out more. This game is a shining light in terms of solid pacing and content behind the main story.
Horror game that's good for anyoneFazbott | March 25, 2014 | See all Fazbott's reviews »
Don't be put off by the fact that this game is a horror-thriller because it's not really that scary, but it's still a great game. Excellent game play and visuals makes for a riveting experienced accompanied by a decent story line. Would recommend for anyone that enjoys the darker types of games, but doesn't want to be soiling their pants for 10 hours.
Great game, spooky enough for us wimps!radenthefridge | March 24, 2014 | See all radenthefridge's reviews »
For the hardcore horror fans, this may seem like a tickle compared to far more gruesome games, but I enjoyed it. I'd say this is a much more creeping fear, similar to H.P. Lovecraft's style of scariness. This will really hit home if you have a significant other as well.
Also really liked the episodic content, and helped keep the story fresh when often games can have you forgetting what happened, who that guy is, etc.
