Alan Wake is looking interesting. Its story seems to be interesting too. So interesting, it could be like Max Payne and turned into a movie.

So what say you, Sam Lake?

“From the very beginning, we planned to do more with Alan Wake than just this one game,” the game’s writer said to Eurogamer in an interview.

“Whether that means taking him into new mediums or into a new game remains to be seen. With the TV series as a model for the structure of the game, we kind of had plans to take things forward from there.

“Of course, a lot depends on how people react to the game and whether they want to see more of Alan Wake. That being said, we feel that the game needs to reach a conclusion. The player needs to achieve the goals he’s been challenged with and Alan needs to reach the end of his journey,” Lake further added.

“At the same time we need to open doors to a larger story beyond this one.”

We seen Alan Wake yesterday in London, although we can say much kids. Lovely NDA is in play.

The game got release dates last week at X10: May 18 in the US and May 21 for the UK.

No PC version, though. That’s been canned.
