View Full Version : Alan Wake 2 could be Kinect enabled

So earlier today we were wondering about a Kinect enabled Gears of War and now we have another AAA title courting the motion sensor.
Remedy, the developers behind Alan Wake, have posted a job advert (http://www.remedygames.com/programmer) on their website looking for a motion control specialist to help it with a new AAA title.
They never mention Alan Wake 2 but in reality we don't actually know of any other AAA title they may be working on and the idea of a horror based flashlight game utilising Kinect has been bandied about for a while. That sounds like Alan Wake to me.
It also sounds a little bit terrible… I have very little faith right now that Kinect will work well for AAA titles but lets see who breaks rank first and announces how they are going to do it.

I would love another Alan Wake, with or without Kinect.

Another Alan Wake would be cool but please leave Kinect out of it!

Would be cool to see any action game working good on kinect.
Another Alan wake would be awesome though!

I'm still on the fence to see how these games will integrate the motion controls effectively.

A new Alan Wake will be welcome with or without.

Alan Wake worked great with Kinect I don't really want to see it come with Kinect! I'm all for extra features if you have Kinect not sure what those could be in Alan Wake.

While I loved Alan Wake, and I'm really enjoying the Kinect so far, I'm not sure the two should be mixed.
I dunno, I guess I'm willing to give it a chance if it does happen.

maybe if they do it like Heavy Rain or Harry Potter (even though I believe the latter is only mini games not the full game like Heavy Rain and Move)

Then I will be all in.

Hopefully it will turn out to be great :)
I would like to see something like Heavy Rain for the kinect though.

It could be good, move your arm around to aim the flashlight or interact with objects. Using a controller for all the other stuff, obviously. Just because they hire someone to make motion control means it will use Kinect solely.
