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”.
“Shout out to Epic Publishing,” wrote communications director Thomas Puha. “They let us make the game we wanted. [They were] nothing but supportive. Epic's production team especially killed it on Alan Wake 2. They really care. Never have I read so much good feedback from milestones and have producers play so much of the game constantly.”
We awarded Alan Wake 2 a rare 10/10 in our review, noting: “With stunning visuals, pitch-perfect tone and atmosphere, brilliant pacing, and a fascinating mystery to sink your teeth into, there are no twists or turns about it: Alan Wake 2 is an all-timer.” Looks like that Epic Games publishing deal turned out all right in the end, then, eh?
