Celebrating 10 years of Alan Wake

Alan Wake was released 10 years ago, on 14th May 2010. Today we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release in a big way, in a weeklong event we’re calling Bright Falls Week.

Alan Wake is special to so many of you, and it’s a project that’s very dear to us at Remedy as well. This anniversary is a chance for us to look back on the game which became an unexpected, award-winning cult hit and fan favorite. Alan Wake holds TIME Magazine’s 2010 Game of the Year award, IGN’s Best Horror Game on the Xbox 360, and it’s the Reader’s Choice winner of Gamespot’s Best Original IP award. Even though it’s a game that has its tenth birthday today, the fanbase is just as passionate about it as ever.

We’re celebrating the past and Bright Falls! Our hashtag this year is #10yearsofAlanWake – you can follow along on social media to see everything we’re up to.

First off, we are working together with seven streamers who will be streaming Alan Wake from 14th to 20th May. Check the full schedule below!

We are kicking off Bright Falls Week with a special stream on Twitch, which will feature our Creative Director Sam Lake (lead writer on Alan Wake), and actors Matthew Porretta and Ilkka Villi, who both portrayed Alan Wake. Matthew was the voice talent for Alan Wake, while Ilkka served as Alan’s likeness and physical performance. The stream starts at 11am EDT.

You can watch the streamers on their own channels, or you can tune in on our Twitch channel, where all the streams will also be hosted.

All participating streamers will be offering a special Alan Wake anniversary emote!

As part of Bright Falls Week, we are also offering Alan Wake and Alan Wake Collector’s Edition at a 90% discount to PC players on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store (Alan Wake base game only). The sale starts May 14th, today!

And since Alan Wake has had such a devoted fan following since release, we have created a special item exclusively for this event. We made a limited number of mini Maglite flashlights with the Alan Wake 10th anniversary logo. These come in signed and hand-numbered boxes, and you will have a chance to win them through a competition in our official Discord server and on our fansites, PayneReactor, The Sudden Stop, and Comunidad Remedy.

The competition opens at 2pm EEST today, May 14th. You can participate until May 21st at 10am EEST. Check the full terms and conditions of the competition here. Participating streamers will also be giving them out during their streams.

Thank you – to all of you who’ve been fans since the game came out, as well as to those who have only recently discovered the game. Thank you especially to our fansites, PayneReactor, The Sudden Stop, and Comunidad Remedy, who’ve been covering all things Remedy and Alan Wake and stayed big fans of our work for so long! We hope you enjoy Bright Falls Week!
