Alan Wake waking up at GDC?
Could it be true? Could Alan Wake be finally coming out of hibernation next month and showing its beauty to the world at GDC? It is looking more and more likely we will be hearing something very soon regarding Alan Wake, HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I donít think I am the only one saying that, either. So much mystery surrounds this game, itís unbelievable. The game is so hyped, especially considering how little of it we have seen, but that, my friends, may be changing, and changing sooner than we anticipated. Over the last week or so there have been some developments on the official Alan Wake forums, and by developments I mean postings (http://www.alanwake.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1936) from Remedyís community manager. Read below:
The amount of pages keeps growing each night. There are also new edits on the old pages. They keep getting more aggressive. The story is rewriting itself. The protagonist is now my namesake, and his wife is called Alice. The most worrying aspect: the genre seems to be shifting. Itís turning into a horror story. I can no loner be certain whether the hero can succeed or even survive. Apart for the jumbled fragments of bad dreams and an oppressive feeling, I can remember nothing of the process when I wake up. But this morning, a breakthrough! When I came to my senses, I could smell her perfume on my shirt. I am close. I know it. I must push on.

Make of that what you will, but being the fact that they are sharing anything with us on this game is truly amazing. But where in there does it say the game will be shown at GDC? It doesnít, thatís where this next bit comes into play. Gaming website vg247.com (http://vg247.com/) got in contact with Remedy over the possibility of the game being shown at GDC with an interesting reply:
"We unfortunately arenít communicating whether or not weíll have GDC presence at this point of time," I know itís nothing to get too excited about, but itís not a denial, either. So there is every chance this game could finally be waking up to its god-knows-how-many years of sleeping to show the world that it actually exists and that itís everything people were hoping it would be. Alan Wake could be Microsoftís big game this year so you can expect them to be pushing it along as fast as possible. Remedy is due to show off this game, and we strongly believe that GDC could very well be the place Alan Wake emerges from its dream.
