Brightfalls.net, anAlan Wakefan news site officially sanctioned (and hosted) by developer Remedy, has been out of commission for all of 2009. The site has just popped back up, leading one conspiracy-mindedAlan Wakeforum poster, "shorty," to conjecture that the site is back up in anticipation of someAlan Wakenews. Specifically, "thatAlan Wakewill be shown at E3 on Monday!"


The theories of one guy on a forum may not be enough to base a rumor on, but thefollowingpost makes us think something really may be happening. Remedy staffer and forum administrator JoukoRMD responded to that post with "Well, maybe (brightfalls.net site lead) ADM has that feeling too, and thus brought back brightfalls.net," ending with a ;) emoticon. Does that wink signify somesecret knowledge? We suppose we'll find out Monday.Joystiq

I dont know why people are surprised Alan Wake is going to be at E3...its only been MIA for 2 years and if it didnt show this year would probably be deemed vaporware.

Pretty much. I think at this point in time regardless if it's a late 09 or mind 2010 release date. They just need to give it one at this point.

The game was already confirmed for E3 by looking at the E3 showfloor map in one of those links.

ADM, the guy who runs brightfalls.net, is good friends with a number of Remedy staff members. He knows what is going on. They will be at E3.

Not just that, the site was modified from alanwake.com/forum, to forum.alanwake.com to simplify administration tasks. AW.com is by no means a tiny site, but I've been a member for quite some time, and we never get out of hand, so overseeing the forum isn't like moderating GameSpot's forums. Unless, they want to simplify it because they're anticipating heavy traffic. Hmmm... Oh, also take a look at this. Brightfalls.com, not .net, has been sitting still for 8 months now since it went up in October. It was modified on May 28th. http://forum.alanwake.com/showpost.php?p=40152&postcount=7 Tomorrow everyone. Tomorrow.

I think the real question is who doesn't expect it to be shown at E3?

Personally, I don't get the hype for the game. Then again, I haven't seen much of it other then the "Silent Hill-ish" vids.

All you need to know that it's by an AAA dev, and I played their games, and trust me, THEY ROCK.

Just to translate one of the posts:

Heathrow'n kentällä, odotellaan L.A:n konetta. Törmäsimme Remedyyn lentokentällä..mihinköhän pojat on menossa?

"We're at the Heathrow Airport, waiting for the plane to L.A. We encountered Remedy at the airport. Wonder where the guys are heading?"

It's weird- I hear about this game all the time, yet have no idea of what it's really about. My understanding is that they're calling it "psychological horror" and it's sort of open-world. I have no idea if that's right. Hopefully by the time this one hits, Windows 7 will be out so I have a chance to play it if it's as good as everyone thinks it'll be.

Yeah, it's by an AA dev, I think. I hope it turns out well but it probably won't be better than Max Payne 2, the best in the series IMO.

Max Payne 2 was so epic, the noir was just so in your face. I hope Awake has some sort of noir crime, thriller thing goin on.

I don't. I like Alan's concept now. Making like Max Payne would ruin it's uniquness. You did say thriller though, and that's what AW is going to be. Sam Lake said that story does get very scary, and some people who "claim" they've seen it recently describe it as "****-pants scary." I'm think Alan could bring scary back to video games and change gameplay in horror games the way Max Payne did in action games.

I'm sure something will be showed, and I'm sure the game will be great. I'm just a little worried about the PC version with MS involved.
