Remedy reveals Alan Wake plot snip

A Remedy community manager has posted up a passage on the Alan Wake forums written by the protagonist novelist himself.

It wasn’t really. You know what we mean.

And here it is. Alan’s alive!

The amount of pages keeps growing each night. There are also new edits on the old pages. They keep getting more aggressive. The story is rewriting itself. The protagonist is now my namesake, and his wife is called Alice. The most worrying aspect: the genre seems to be shifting. It’s turning into a horror story. I can no loner be certain whether the hero can succeed or even survive. Apart for the jumbled fragments of bad dreams and an oppressive feeling, I can remember nothing of the process when I wake up. But this morning, a breakthrough! When I came to my senses, I could smell her perfume on my shirt. I am close. I know it. I must push on.

– Alan Wake

Any news is good news, right? Might want to do a spellcheck though, Alan. GDC, please.
