Heey everybody

Just want to say that im posting the AMAZING prequel for Alan Wake, Bright Falls.

Bright Falls is an online series of live action shorts set in the fictitious Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, WA that provide an eerie prelude to the events that transpire before Alan Wakes arrival. The series, which is six episodes in length, introduces us to Jake Fischer, a newspaper reporter who, while visiting the town on business, encounters a series of mysterious and haunting experiences.

I am going to keep you updated with the lastes episodes
There are a total of 6 episodes, and the videos is uploaded from Machinima

Bright Falls is well produced and I'd love to keep watching these instead of playing Alan Wake. Even though I'm dying to play it!

They're very reminiscent of David Lynch's work though, which is why I probably like them so much. Can't wait for the rest!

Thanks for posting these. The acting is far better than I was expecting. And the woman who plays Ellen is reeeeally good looking.

I watched the first 3 episodes today and all I can say is WOW. Its got me even more excited for the game than I already was. Friday can't come soon enough.

Also there is a video from Machinima on youtube where the guys are talking about the videos. Some real interesting points in it and a lot of things I never noticed.

Aahh can't wait!!

I am confused, I am really wondering what happened to them. Are we going to find out in the game? What was with the diver in the first episode? I guess this was like Lost in that with each episode all I get are more questions and no answers , lol.

urg theres so much questions its just arg brain melting, even the ending of the game leaves much to ask. i really liked the bright falls series altho it was a one off, something like that was awesome, give a proper tv series like aw sure theres one out there somewhere but im lazy to look.

I'm gradually starting to understand it all the more I play it (I'm on my second playthrough), just don't ask me to try and explain it! I think it's one of those things (for both the game and webisodes) that takes time to sink in.

Remember the book, that followed in the LE, it also tells you alot of things of what is going ón :)

As video game tie-in-videos are usually big misses rather than hits, these were exceptionally well made and frighteningly entertaining. The tone and pacing is so structured and well thought out with all the little details sprinkled throughout each episode that I couldn't wait for the next. I wish this type of "series" was actually on TV as a regular show. Instead we get garbage like FlashForward and Happy Town. If there was a DVD of these included with the special edition of the game I would go to Gamestop right now and change my preorder from the regular edition to the special edition.

Anyway, I think the whole meaning or purpose of Bright Falls is to shed some light (haha pun intended) on what happens to the townsfolk when they are overcome with this dark presence that the game seems to be about. I haven't played it yet, as it comes out Tuesday, so I could be way off but that's what I took away from it.

good stuff the prequel,i enjoyed them alot

so i guess he was becoming a Taken(the eye examine with the eye torch)...but what was all that Body bag stuff right at the beginning of episode 1(and then in a later episode as well)...did someone retrieve that Bodybag from the water?

it was good seeing all the live counterparts for the game..i think Rose looked the best/most identical

Anyone else get the feeling that the intro song and the series ending song were done by somebody from RoosterTeeth?

the opening of the episodes reminded me a little of the opening of Stephen Kings Kingdom Hospital
