31 Days: Day 20 - Waking Nightmare


There is a bit of sadness that comes with making this series, as some of my top choices are likely to never receive a sequel for one reason or another. For some there have been talks official and unofficial but as the days go on my hopes fade. One on these games is Alan Wake


Alan Wake: Theme Alan Wake steam:[MBQLH-JTLFG-H40EF]


The video includes the whole soundtrack but I’m focusing on the first song which is the first 5 minutes of the video. It’s very fitting as a dark melancholic tune. You see throughout the course of the game Alan Wake loses almost everything he cared about. This is also in addition to his personal issuse such as insomnia and a substance abuse problem. Suffering from writers block (on top of everything) he goes on vacation, only to have his wife taken by a sinister presence called the darkness. He manages to save her but not without being trapped in the darkness himself. It’s like being trapped in a room with a one way mirror. You can see everyone you love live on but you, you’re trapped and alone. To be utterly and truly alone is something many people don't really experience. Frankly it is truly terrifying to be definitivly alone.

There is some hope that he will be able to leave the darkness but even with the DLC there isn’t a definitive answer leaving a lot  of us wanting more, and wanting we will stay because the sequel was canned which is another horror for another day.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
