Alan Wake started development as an open-world game, before gaining a more focused, linear direction. This grants Bright Falls a substantial geography that adds to the brooding sense of darkness. As the drama unfolds, and you rush from the safety of one well-lit area to the next, you discover you are caught in the pages of the protagonist’s novels, and things soon spiral in a surreal Twin Peaks direction.
Easily dismissed as just another horror game, Alan Wake’s detailed environments and open geography create a world that is both full of foreboding and inviting to investigate.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB TEEN for Violence, Blood, Use of Alcohol And Tobacco, Language.
