- Light as a combat element: As Wake journeys deeper into the mystery of Bright Falls, the shadows close in around him. When darkness descends, light becomes his
only ally as he fights his way to daybreak. This poses a
severe problem for Alan Wake since his enemies seemingly
gain strength from the shadows, and before long,
light itself becomes his greatest ally. Players must skillfully
combine their use of light with more conventional weapons
to stand a chance.
- Realistic, interactive environment: Set in the town of
Bright Falls, the hyper-detailed environments of the Pacific
Northwest play an important role, as even the change in
daylight and weather will profoundly affect the characters
and enemies in Alan Wake. The game’s advanced rendering
engine provides amazingly realistic environments that
bring this world to detailed life–from the lush forest of
evergreen trees to the quaint small-town buildings and
streets. The world of Alan Wake is alive and real.
- Episodic narrative: The mission-based structure of Alan
Wake creates an episodic narrative similar to a deeply
structured dramatic television series, such as LOST, Twin
Peaks and X-Files. As the episodes progress, gameplay
evolves to introduce new elements and characters, escalating
the level of threat and action in the game.
