Gaikai Added Free Cloud Gaming Demo of Alan Wake
Cloud gaming demo service Gaikai has added a free demo of Alan Wake to its cloud gaming demo network. Alan Wake is a third-person shooter psychological thriller action game published and developed by Remedy Entertainment, the studio behind the critically acclaimed Max Payne and its sequel Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. The game had quite an interesting development history. Remedy started the development of the game as a multi-platform title with the PC as lead platform. But later Microsoft bought the exclusivity of the game for the Xbox 360. Not long ago Remedy finally managed to bring the game to the PC and now also to the gaming cloud.
When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.
Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.
With the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller, Alan Wake’s intense atmosphere, deep and multilayered story, and exceptionally tense combat sequences provide players with an entertaining and original gaming experience.
The game includes the Alan Wake Special Episodes The Signal and The Writer.
You can play the free demo of Alan Wake powered by Gaikai.
