Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Game Studios. A psychological thriller, the plot follows thriller writer Alan Wake in uncovering the mystery behind the disappearance of his wife while both on vacation in idyllic small-town Bright Falls, and having to deal with blackouts and visions of characters and ideas from his latest novel, which he cannot remember writing, coming to life.


Hey, here I am
It's a beautiful day here
Bright Falls
I hope nothing gets in my way
But something don't seem right
I feel safer in the light

It's been two years
Inspiriation it can't be found
Suddenly my life is turned upside down
I ran when I heard her scream (it's too late)
They dragged her into the lake

My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
But I don't remember writing this story

And as these pages come to life
I hope they help me find my wife

I'm running (running running)
Running through the night
With the help of a flashlight
The Taken they burn and ignite
Here comes some more
They just appear out of the thin air

I'm never giving up on you
The writing shows up on the walls
Maybe that's a clue
That takes me to where you are
I'll travel any distance
I don't care how far

My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
But I don't remember writing this story
My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
