A Remedy for success
Sitting down to write this review makes us feel a little like Alan Wake himself, tapping away at his typewriter in the Writer’s Room.

"They really care"
In a year filled to bursting with genuine Game of the Year contenders, Alan Wake 2 has added another candidate to the list. The game, itself a sequel to an old Xbox 360 exclusive, was published by Epic Games – and developer Remedy has been singing its partner’s praises on Twitter, noting that the company “really cares”...
Night Springs, The Lake House
Alan Wake 2 only launched on Friday, but developer Remedy has already shone a light on its post-launch support plans, detailing when and where this particular tale will take us next.

Step into the light
It's been a long time coming, but Alan Wake 2 is actually here. The survival horror sequel promises a crazy level of cinematic quality, coupled with intense psychological scares.

Stuck in the dark place
As you'll no doubt have seen at various other outlets, the review embargo for Alan Wake 2 has now lifted. Early verdicts for Remedy Entertainment's hotly anticipated sequel are now out in the wild, and you might be wondering where Push Square's assessment is right now. Well, it's coming, but we're not totally ready yet...
Alan Wake 2 is out tomorrow, 27th October, with the long-awaited sequel set to continue the tale of the titular writer. We got a ritualistic launch trailer, which has us counting the hours until we can finally dive back into Remedy's incredible-looking world. We admittedly don't know much about the narrative this time around, and without...
Saga Anderson arrives to investigate ritualistic murders in a small town. Alan Wake pens a dark story to shape the reality around him. These two heroes are somehow connected. Can they become the heroes they need to be?
A string of ritualistic murders threatens Bright Falls, a small-town community surrounded by Pacific Northwest wilderness. Saga Anderson, an accomplished FBI agent with a reputation for solving impossible cases arrives to investigate the murders. Anderson’s case spirals into a nightmare when she discovers pages of a horror story that starts to come true around her.
Alan Wake, a lost writer trapped in a nightmare beyond our world, writes a dark story in an attempt to shape the reality around him and escape his prison. With a dark horror hunting him, Wake is trying to retain his sanity and beat the devil at his own game.
Anderson and Wake are two heroes on two desperate journeys in two separate realities, connected at heart in ways neither of them can understand: reflecting each other, echoing each other, and affecting the worlds around them.
Fueled by the horror story, supernatural darkness invades Bright Falls, corrupting the locals and threatening the loved ones of both Anderson and Wake. Light is their weapon—and their safe haven — against the darkness they face. Trapped in a sinister horror story where there are only victims and monsters, can they break out to be the heroes they need to be?
