Remedy Games just released a Holiday greeting video, and it’s a quite special one.
In the video, Creative Director Sam Lake shows the set for a live action Easter Egg that will appear in Quantum Break. The character in the video is named Alex Casey, and he’s looking for a missing writer alongside with his partner.
Alex Casey is the protagonist of Alan Wake’s books, and I’m sure I don’t need to tell you who the missing writer is (even because he’s named explicitly with a note near his picture on the board). Alan Wake himself appears, wearing the outfit from Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. The tease ends with the message “to reach the surface, you must fist dive deeper.”
Interestingly, Alan Wake is portrayed with a beard, which might or might not mean something, considering that he never had more than a stubble in his games. Another note on the board mentions that he has been missing for five years.
Lake mentions that 2015 has been a tough year of hard work to finish Quantum Break, but now they’re almost there, and they’re just putting him some nice finishing touches like this Easter egg.
