Remedy has released a new developer video for Alan Wake: American Nightmare, and in it the team discusses how Wake’s story this time around is more of a pulp-action-adventure. Drawing inspiration from sci-fi and B-movie classics, as well as urban legends, American Nightmare will have a very different mood and stylization, similar to the TV show in the first game Night Springs, and Wake will find out that sometimes, legends like Mr. Scratch, are real. American Nightmare launches on February 22.
