Alan Wake Shows Signs of Life

Finnish developer Remedy began work on psychological thriller Alan Wake in 2005. It's 2009, and some are starting to peg the title as vaporware. A new announcement indicates otherwise.

Remedy has joined forces with Imagination Studios, who is supplying the Finnish dev with "motion-capture and animations" to enhance Alan Wake. Remedy exec Lasse Seppänen stated, "It is with great pleasure that we can recommend Imagination Studios. Remedy has been extremely pleased with their co-operation and devotion in bringing the characters of Alan Wake to life."

The developer is also best know for churning out the first two Max Payne titles for Rockstar Games. Max Payne 3 is being created by Rockstar's Vancouver studio — a sign that Remedy could be working full capacity on Alan Wake.
