The characters, Mott and Stucky were different in the original script. Originally, Mott was supposed to own the gas station and Stucky was the town's troublemaker. Over the course of game development, they switched roles. You can still see Mott's name on the gas station on the 2006 Intel Demo. See more »

Quotes

Alan Wake: I'm crazy, but that's fine Barry.
Barry Wheeler: [laughs] You got that right, Al, you're barking mad. You are by far, the craziest...
Alan Wake: But maybe that's inevitable when you deal with crazy stuff like this. It helps. This is happening, Barry. Alice, they never had Alice. She's trapped in the darkness at the bottom of the lake, but she's NOT dead.
Barry Wheeler: Al, how can you know that?
Alan Wake: I know, Barry, I can...
Barry Wheeler: Al, I...

Best Compelling Game Ever!

This is the best game I have played in a while. Every detail and points in this game is extremely polished. The story is the most hard to put down plot I have seen in a LONG time. The character development are really great: Alan Wake is my favorite character so far in gaming. The gameplay is solid, it makes this character feel real and in danger; he's a writer not a action hero. The environments are detailed every inch of the way. It's like you are in the game. Just personally I love this game to the bone. This is definitely one of the best games I have ever played in my life time. Just go out and buy it full price. The compelling of this game is so intense that I was scared. This is a master piece! Please, give me a great follow-up to this.

10/10 Greatness
