[EG] Remedy's message to Alan Wake PC pirates: "enjoy the story!"

post #1 of 67
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Hakkinen hopes Alan Wake PC pirates will have so much fun with the game that they'll fork out their hard-earned cash for future Alan Wake titles, thus benefiting Remedy in the long run.

"Of course we hope people will pay for it, but if they don't, at least enjoy the story," he said. "Maybe they'll get something else in the Alan Wake universe somewhere down the line."

I like the "Small Team of 60 people"

Unknown Worlds would -kill- for that "small team" being only 4 man strong.

I'd consider anything 20 and under a small team.


60 though, to me, seems like a medium sized team. With anything over 100+ people a large team.


Good response on their part. Reminds me of The Man From Earth and The Void.

Piracy
Quote:
The Void was noted in Russia for its developers' reaction to piracy. When the game appeared on the largest Russian torrents.ru tracker, the developers talked to the downloaders in the thread, answered game related questions and encouraged them to buy the game, if they liked it. Also, the developers made an official torrent containing all bonus material from the gift edition.[11]

That's a very strong message from the dev, and should get the ball rolling on some purchases. I love buying games, I hate buying bad games. I remember when I purchased FEAR and SWAT4 I was so excited and they both rocked. Been buying games I love since thumb.gif

It's nice to know there is still a dev that has the passion for being a dev and is not completely entangled with this "maximum profit or die" hoopla..

It's the right attitude that this developer has. Kudos to him. I've played this a bit on console, and it felt a bit awkward with a controller, but since I'm a PC gamer at heart, I'll wait for reviews on its performance, gameplay and story before I pull the trigger on forking out cash on it. And it's nice to see a developer actualy care about story. There's so many games nowadays that pushes out games without any real thought to story. But to be honest, in the FPS genre, that's kind of hard to do anyway.

(Which is why FEAR, Deus Ex: HR, and Alice have gotten me so damn hooked).

I would definitely buy Alan Wake but, at the same time, I also don't want to increase my Steam backlog. I still have yet to play New Vegas, Bioshock and the Witcher series, Skyrim, Crysis series, HF2 Episodes, STALKER series, LA Noire and about 2 or 3 more games. Goal is to finish them all by July to get ready to get more games

LOL! I can't wait for 12 P.M.

My only disappointment is that it wasn't midnight like Portal 2 or Arkham City.

Is Alan Wake going to use Games for Windows Live?

Games for Windows Live will not be used; we will be fully supporting the Steam platform.

No horrible GFWL crap for us! YAY!

A lot of great info in that FAQ, too.
They've officially stated there is extra graphical options and, very important, FOV adjustment!
