Five long years after it was announced at E3, Remedy finally releases Alan Wake tomorrow in the UK and Europe for Xbox 360, with a US launch on Tuesday.
Anyone not buying it are obviously nuts for not doing so: game looks set to properly pump up the volume, according to reviews that came out for the thriller last week.
On Monday, we asked you for your questions for the Finnish developer, and you came in with an impressive set of them.
The best answer will get an Alan Wake Super Elite 360 bundle, with runner-up prizes consisting of Collector’s Editions of the game. We’ll let you know of the winners soon.

As opposed to North Korea. Pretty sure there aren’t any Xbox 360′s in North Korea. If there are, they’re probably used as nuclear missile components, or something. Or as tables.

There can be few unreleased games as enigmatic as Alan Wake. The Remedy thriller, announced in 2005 for both 360 and PC, has gone in a matter of weeks from being almost entirely under wraps to a 360 exclusive, a May release, an episodic adventure in an untraditional gaming sense, a project inspired by Twin Peaks and as having “seasons” with planned DLC. It’s all go for Alan and the gang.
Following a blocked writer on a mission to save his wife in the Pacific Northwest, the game is finally gearing up for what looks to be a sizeable launch for Microsoft. We were lucky enough to grab some time in London this week with Oskari Häkkinen, head of franchise at Remedy. Hit the link.

“Starting in January we have like a triple A exclusive title pretty much every month for the first half of the year. You’ve got Mass Effect 2, you’ve got Splinter Cell, you’ve got Alan Wake, you’ve got Crackdown 2,” said the exec.
“You’ve got things like Fable 3 and Halo: Reach and coming later that year. Those are just the exclusives.”

Someone’s posted up an 18-minute video of an Alan Wake demo on GT, filmed last week in Russia. Watch it after the break.
There’s tons of gameplay in there, and a good amount on the story.
Spoilers: Alan, a bestselling writer, goes off into the middle of nowhere to get his mojo back. His better half gets kidnapped and he ends up talking to a man in a puffer jacket in a log cabin. From then on, all manner of wacky shit happens. Spoilers over.
The Remedy 360 exclusive has no date. But if people are seeing this much of it, it really can’t be that far away.
Can it? Thanks, Blerk.

Remedy boss Markus Mäki has told VG247 that there’s no timeframe in place for the release of news on Alan Wake’s PC version.
“I don’t unfortunately have a schedule for updates at this point,” the developer said via email.
His comment comes after he yesterday posted on the Alan Wake message boards to say that he “will be making comments in regards to the PC at a later in time.”
Mäki said in the same post that all of Remedy’s efforts are currently focused on the game’s 360 version.

Remedy poster “Markus” – presumably Markus Mäki – has said on the Alan Wake message boards that news related to the game’s PC version is on the way.
“I’m a PC gamer at heart (have a Core i7, Radeon 4890, 5.1 audio setup at home) so I do appreciate your concerns,” he said.
“Unfortunately all I can say at this point is that we’re focusing all our efforts on the 360 version and will be making comments in regards to the PC at a later in time.”
You didn’t know there was a PC version? Alan Wake was originally announced for PC and “next generation consoles” in 2005. In May 2006, that switched to, “Format TBD for Microsoft Windows Vista and DVD for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system.”
We’re just checking to make sure that’s Markus Mäki now. Doesn’t sound very promising for the PC crowd though, does it?

Remedy’s announced a partnership with motion-capture group Imagination Studios to help on the infinite development of Alan Wake.

E3, please. More on Develop.

A first snippet was released on Friday night.
Alan’s an author. So he writes. This is what he writes. Poor old Alan.
Rusty’s screams were still ringing in my ears. The tree stump the grove got its name from looked like a severed leg of a monsterous bird. I prayed that the gun would make a difference. Every time I moved the flashlight, I was afraid of the horrors it might reveal. Suddenly a ragged arrow gloved in the light. I followed it.
- Alan Wake
Here’s the second one.
I taped a note on the door (I had forgotten so many things already).
and made its way inside, through a nostril or an ear. I barricaded the door of the cabin. I kept the lights on at all times. I was convinced that I would wake up changed, darkness having seeped in through the cracks in the floor, crawled up to my bed. I became increasingly afraid to go to sleep.
Got that? Goodo. Show it, please. Thanks, IGN.
