There are places in our world where fiction and dreams can come true.

Alan Wake Remastered, QR Code #1

In Alan Wake Remastered, the QR Codes were revised from the 2012 PC edition, where they had originally appeared. In the 2012 version, they sent players to memes and official links, but with the Remastered edition, the team revisited those link opportunities to connect their adventures.

In this new edition, scanning the codes sent the player to a YouTube link with a recording of Alan Wake set at a typewriter. For those who have played Control, you may recognise the style! 

After meeting the hitchhiker for the first time, you will have to walk down two sets of wooden staircases to escape from him. At the bottom of the two staircases is a notice board which is placed in front as you walk down. On the board is the first code.

Scanning the QR code will send the player to a YouTube link. You can watch Vision 01, HERE

"I was trapped here. Had been for what felt like years. Outside reality, what we count as real. I wrote to find a way out. I wrote to master this place, to learn its secrets, use that knowledge to rewrite my reality. Once upon a time, I had written hard-boiled crime books set in New York City, 'til I was sick of it. The Alex Casey books, a detective solving cases of murder, corruption and madness in the dark city. This place tapped into my unconscious mind, drew from there, twisting what it stole into a nightmare that took shape around me. A mystery. A detective story... I needed a detective to guide me. Echos of Casey haunted me.

Differences to Alan Wake (2012)
In the original PC version of the game, scanning the QR code sent the player to the Alan Wake Facebook page.

Connections to Alan Wake 2
In the piece, Wake describes his experiences in the Dark Place, following the end of the original game. He dreams back to the life he had left before travelling to Bright Falls, as the successful author of the bestselling Alex Casey book series. He draws on those memories, bringing Alex Casey to life and leading him to Bright Falls.
