Alan Wake is an action-adventure video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios, released for the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The story follows best-selling thriller novelist Alan Wake as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his wife's disappearance during a vacation in the small fictional town of Bright Falls, Washington, all while experiencing events from the plot in his latest novel, which he cannot remember writing, coming to life.
In its pacing and structure, Alan Wake is similar to a thriller television series, with episodes that contain plot twists and cliffhangers. The game itself consists of six episodes, and the storyline is continued by two special episodes, titled 'The Signal' and 'The Writer', that were made available as downloadable content (DLC) within the same year of the game's release. Together, they make the first season of a possibly longer story. Additionally, a six-episode live-action web series called Bright Falls acts as a prequel to the game, and a number of related books also expand upon the Alan Wake story.
Chiefly written by Sam Lake, Alan Wake took over five years to create—an unusually long development time in the game industry. The game received positive reviews from critics, and is often praised for its visuals, sound, narrative, pacing, and atmosphere. Alan Wake was awarded the first spot in Time magazine's list of the top 10 video games of 2010. Alan Wake's American Nightmare, a full stand-alone title, was released in February 2012 on the Xbox Live Arcade service. A sequel was in development but was cancelled. However, the scrapped sequel became the foundation and inspiration of Remedy's next title, Quantum Break.
I managed to get the GoG version working with sound (even in the cinematics).
I'm running Wine 1.7.43. I installed with Playonlinux as a 'non-listed program'.
I installed on a new virtual drive, and chose the defaults for everything.
After the install finished, I repeated the process to apply the 18.104.22.168 patch to the virtual drive I just created.
As-in, Alan Wake wouldn't run. So in PlayOnLinux I selected 'configure'.
I set the Wine version to 'System' (the version I'm running above, 1.7.43).
The I chose 'Configure Wine' and set the Windows version as 'Windows 7'.
Next I chose 'Install components' and chose 'dxfullsetup'.
Once that finished I went back to the Wine tab and clicked 'Windows reboot' and 'Kill processes'.
Now once I clicked 'Run' for Alan Wake, boom! Full functionality. Use WSAD instead of the arrow keys but otherwise it's all good.
From WineHQ and other threads I initially tried various other steps, installed d3dx9, dsound, xact, etc. Through various trial and error I got the game running but with no cinematic sound. Doing the above process was the only way that I ended up with full functionality.
I have a ThinkPad T430 with a NVIDIA Geforce NVS 5400m and Core i7 processor. With the Intel graphics the game is playable but choppy. Using Bumblebee to run PlayOnLinux with Primus, the game is very smooth.
