Alan Wake Tribute

Share Collapse

Update: Thank you so much for the Daily 3rd and front page! You guys are awesome.

After a year of starting this, putting it off for a little bit and finally getting back to work on it, it's finally out. This is an animated tribute to one of my favorite games, Alan Wake. After originally playing the game, I was really inspired by the story driven gameplay and unique experience it provided, so I decided to make an animation dedicated to it.

However, with a short animation like this, I decided to stick with a simple action sequence that's familiar to the many encounters you face in the game. This is my second actual animation release and did a lot more with it, such as designing backgrounds and doing all of the art myself. Feel free to let me know what you think. I appreciate any constructive criticism. Enjoy!

So I loved the Alan Wake game, and this was incredible to play. I invited my friend to play it, and later I found out she bought the actual game. Though in the game, I hated Alan for his decisions... He makes dangerous ones and I have to live through them. Haha. Well, over all, nice job!

That was Excellent with a capital E! The end credit music was epic, too! Great Job, my friend!

Omega 3 fatty acids are good for you!

Kinda slow paced.

I love that line. I was planning on adding Taken quotes like that in the animation, but never did. If I make another one, I probably will. And like I said before, I'll work on my pacing in the future.

ehhhhh more of a 3/5 because it was short and the wasnt that epic thogh it was a little cool cause
the ghost (or whatever it is) dies in a painful but awsome death.

I logged in just to write a review. This made me want to replay it again. Absolutely loved the game and the tribute was pretty damn awesome im not going to lie. Id love to see more future tributes :D

RidenerDesign responds:

Thanks for taking the time to write one! I wouldn't mind working on another tribute in the future. It probably won't be my next project, but we'll see what happens.
