At the end of the week, the developers at Remedy Entertainment provided another behind-the-scenes video for “Alan Wake 2”. This time it’s all about the so-called Dark Place and the fate of the protagonist Alan Wake.
After we took part in this year’s Gamescom detailed gameplay videos about “Alan Wake 2”, Remedy Entertainment provided another making-of video at the end of the week.
In this, the creative minds of the Finnish development studio address the fate of Alan Wake, one of the two playable characters in the sequel.
Another topic that Remedy Entertainment talks about is the so-called Dark Place. In the Dark Place we are dealing with the nightmare come to life in which Alan has been trapped for 13 years now.
Finally, the developers pay a visit to the Pacific Northwest and chat a little about the work on “Alan Wake 2”.
The focus is on a dense atmosphere
While the first “Alan Wake” from 2010 was a psychological thriller, the sequel is a classic survival horror adventure with which the developers at Remedy Entertainment want to put their own stamp on the genre. According to game director Kyle Rowley, the focus is on a dense atmosphere and an exciting story, while jump scares play a minor role.
“In terms of style, we look at modern and classic arthouse horror films such as newer works like Hereditary or Midsommar or similar films. “It’s about the idea of stylizing the film and placing more emphasis on atmosphere and fear than on gore or jump scares,” led the game director on the goals pursued by Remedy Entertainment.
“We took inspiration from Twin Peaks and David Lynch’s works with the original Alan Wake – that’s still there, but we’re expanding our sources of inspiration for this game.”
