Remedy Entertainment's decision to bring their thriller Alan Wake to the PC seems to be working out for them. The developer revealed today that the PC port is already in the black just days after its release.
"I wanted to chime in here. We are very happy with the sales and hitting #1 on Steam at launch was nothing short of amazing," said a dev post on the Alan Wake forums (via Blue). "We recouped our development and marketing expenses during the first 48 hours. And yes, we're certainly very excited about PC."
In Alan Wake, an author with writer's block goes on vacaion with his wife. Soon after arriving in the sleepy town of Bright Falls, though, it becomes apparent that something evil is at work there. Alice goes missing and inhabitants of the town are taken over by a dark presence.
Remedy has made a point of saying that the PC version isn't "a cheap cash-in." It features updated visuals, as well as support for 3D and multi-screen.
Wake is available through Steam for $29.99. From now until February 23rd, you'll get the Collector's Edition DLC for free with your purchase. This DLC includes the soundtrack, a PDF book, and developer commentary videos.
