What a game, about art and the artists who make it, about history and those who write it, just a phenomenal point and click adventure game that astounds me it got funded by Microsoft and made by Obsidian. Worth all the praise, worth your time and attention.
A testament to this game is the theater level. In it, you progress as normal, going through trippy dreamlike sequences that spiral down into the general unease that you expect. It's about 10ish hours in, depending on how you play, and at the end of it, you're treated with an empty theater playing a film. If the player wants, they can walk away, go on to the next objective. If they stay though, there's a 20 minute short film. It's entirely in Finnish. It portrays the flipped side of the dual protagonist storyline, either being foreshadowing or insight on what you've done. It's stylish and brutal, it's odd and unnerving, it feels so right. It's telling that Remedy put this here, after a long gameplay segment, where you watch Sam Lake act on a fake projector in a fake theater. This is the reward, they trust you'll watch it, and Remedy trusts the art they've made in your hands. This is the result of throwing money at a team of true talent and letting them make the art they've dreamed of making for years. Alan Wake 2 is beautiful.
