Alan Wake 2 Creator Dreams of a Dark Gothic Fantasy
Sam Lake, the creator of Alan Wake 2, recently expressed his desire to tell a “crazy, huge budget, dark gothic fantasy” in an interview with GQ magazine. Despite the challenges faced during the development of cult horror game Alan Wake, Lake is still eager to explore other worlds beyond his previous creations of Max Payne and Control.
When asked if he would consider working on something different, Lake responded, “Yeah. I’m still thinking that I will. There will be a time when I retire. It’s just that… this has all been so engaging.”
As for the stories he wants to share, Lake mentioned a “crazy, huge budget, dark gothic fantasy” that he has not yet utilized in any of his projects.
The visuals of Alan Wake 2 have been highly praised by Digital Foundry, stating, “From a visual perspective though, Alan Wake 2 is an extraordinary effort. On current-gen consoles, there’s not much that can rival the incredible density of detail and fine-grained lighting on display here.”
While there are some performance issues that need further attention, Alan Wake 2 offers an impressive and visually stunning experience. It comes with a strong recommendation, especially for fans of survival horror who want to witness the best technology of this generation.
