I tell you, modders are crazy. Remember when Remedy announced that they would not release mod tools for the PC version of Alan Wake? A lot of gamers were disappointed with that statement, however modder ‘evin’ decided to go ahead and figure out a way to unlock the game’s data files. Fast forward a couple of days and here we are today with the AlanWTool, a tool that can be used to unpack Alan Wake’s data files.
This tool has a lot of potential and there are already some small mods with translated subtitles. Remedy’s Co-Founder, SamiV, was really impressed with evin’s work and has no plans in locking the files or sending him a cease and desit message.
This basically means that we could very well get some high-resolution Texture Packs in the coming months. This little tool has a lot of potential, so go ahead and download it if you are interested in messing with the game’s data files.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
