Watch Remedy's Narrative Broadcast (Control) Here!
[With Brooke Maggs and Clay Murphy]

Remedy kicked off their Autumn livestreams last week, starting with a closer look at Control's and AWE's story! 

The studio's Community Manager Vida Starčević was joined on the day by Clay Murphy (now Senior Writer at Remedy) and Brooke Maggs (now Senior Narrative Designer) in a seventy-minute-long segment. 

Ahead of their broadcast, the studio asked the community to submit questions to put to the game's narrative team. Accompanying their discussion, the developers played a section of the newly launched AWE DLC pack which both guests had an important part in shaping.

You can watch the broadcast in full below or on the Remedy Twitch channel, HERE!


At the start of the year, developers at the studio made the move to work from home, as part of the international effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19. The precautions also extended to the studio's livestreams, with developers calling in remotely from home to answer fan questions.

"Story in Control! Let's play AWE and chat with the writer and narrative designer!" marks the first of three broadcasts scheduled for the season. 

The second stream will be taking place on October 1st (5pm BST / 7pm EEST / 9am PT) and will be tackling the "Audio in Control". While the guests for the broadcast haven't been announced, the most likely candidates are Sam Hughes and Juha Vainio.

For the final livestream of the season, the developers are shifting things up with a look back, "Quantum Break: Back In Time". The guests likely to be appearing are Thomas Hudson (former Senior Designer) and Elmeri Raitanen (former Lead VFX Artist).

(We'll switch the video below to the YouTube link once it's available on the official channel.)

The Control One Year Anniversary PAX Online Panel
[& Where To Watch!]

With travel and large gatherings being an issue this year, a number of event organisers have taken their annual celebrations online. It's a way of continuing to share ideas and game reveals during lockdown, and a lot of the content is free in ways that it wouldn't be at a location-specific event. 

This week, PAX Online is taking place with panels on podcasting, and content creation, and aspects of game development, and retrospectives, and a certain recently launched Remedy game. 

Later tonight, Sam Lake (Creative Director), Mikael Kasurinen (Game Director), Courtney Hope (Actor, Jesse Faden), and Matthew Porretta (Actor, Dr Casper Darling) will be taking a look back at Control in a pre-recorded panel. The session will be moderated by Janina Gavankar, who Quantum Break fans may remember also hosted the live reading of Time Knife

Originally called "Control - Developing a Supernatural Mind Trip with Remedy", the panel can now be found under "Control - A Year Later. The Road to Developing an Award-Winning Supernatural Trip" but will be taking place at the same time as stated before 7:15pm BST / 6:15pm GMT / 9:15 EEST. You can view the panel's page, HERE

There are four PAX streams taking place at the same time, for the Control panel, you will need /PAX!
