Today Remedy has released a video of Alan Wake, by far surpassing the teaser-trailer. From comparison to the descriptions in some of the E3-press-reactions I deduce that this is the video which was presented there. The game-engine shows off its strengths by stunning demonstrations of the effects of changing time of day, some of it in fast forward—don’t miss the volumetric shadows. Experience of the physics engine is mediated to the onlooker by means of an avalanche of boulders crashing down a hillside. And we finally see the protagonist’s vehicle and himself in action. But the best thing is the atmosphere and suspense created. The travelling camera, the editing, music … all help together to generate a real cliffhanger. And we see much more of Bright Falls .No more spoilers—if interested, go to the official download page and get the thing in your favourite format—mirrors and torrent there, too.
