Adventure 12 October 2010

The second DLC pack for the action-adventure horror game by Remedy Entertainment. Alan Wake: The Writer touches upon many plot threads both from the main game and the first DLC, The Signal. However, while previously the protagonist was trying to understand the eerie reality he'd found himself in and make some sense out of it, this time—again with the help of Thomas Zane—Wake engages in the final fight against the nightmare that's plaguing him. In order to take control of his own life and stay sane, he visits familiar (and unfamiliar at the same time) places, resisting the temptation to succumb to the darkness that's still haunting his mind. When it comes to mechanics, the DLC is nothing new, although it's atmosphere is even darker and more nightmarish, underscoring how far removed from reality Wake is and how dangerous the things lurking inside him are.
