It seems that that Stephen King quote within the first Alan Wake was a present from the writer himself, and it solely price Treatment $1.
You do not have to be a detective to see the Stephen King influences on the unique Alan Wake, even ignoring the truth that the titular Alan quotes him proper at the beginning of the sport. However in an interview with Eurogamer, Treatment boss Sam Lake spoke of how necessary it was to him to get a quote from King himself into the sport. “Creating the unique Alan Wake, I actually, actually desperately needed a quote from him to start out it off,” Lake informed Eurogamer. “It is my understanding he needed $1 for us to get the rights to make use of it.

A single greenback is clearly fairly the discount with regards to mental property rights, and feels fairly on model for the final ethos that King appears to exhibit. It is fairly the best way to start out the sport, and sure would not be nearly as good a gap with out it.
For a little bit of context, here is the quote from the sport in full: “Stephen King as soon as wrote, ‘Nightmares exist exterior of logic, and there’s little enjoyable available in explanations; they’re antithetical to the poetry of worry.' In a horror story, the sufferer retains asking why – however there may be no rationalization, and there shouldn’t be one. The unanswered thriller is what stays with us the longest, and it’s what we’ll bear in mind ultimately.” A robust quote that helps setup what sort of time you are going to be having!
In fact, up subsequent for Treatment is Alan Wake 2, which is ready to be launched October 17. The sequel is supposedly meant to be extra of a survival horror sport than the primary one, so the King influences is likely to be even stronger. Disgrace it will not be getting a bodily launch, although.
