Remedy Entertainment is excited to follow up with another developer diary about their brand new Xbox Live Arcade game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare.
This time around, the developers at Remedy chat about the narrative and soul of the game. While the original Alan Wake drew inspiration from Stephen King and Twin Peaks, American Nightmare is inspired much more by pulp fiction supernatural and sci-fi B movie classics. Just like the last dev diary, don't blink or you might miss some of the eerie happenings throughout.
