In the previous developer diary about Alan Wake's American Nightmare, the creative triumvirate of the Remedy dev studio said that they're making this new Xbox Live game with more of an action focus in mind.
But they're back again to assuage any fears you might have about the minimisation of the moody narrative that won so many fans for Alan Wake in the first place. The comments in the video above shed some light on where American Nightmare fits in Wake continuity and also shout out other influences that will be coming to the fore in the downloadable title. Me, I'm just glad for more Night Springs. That show-that-doesn't-actually-exist rocks.
