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

Alan Wake, Writer in the Cabin #3

In Alan Wake and Alan Wake Remastered, players can discover seven Writer in the Cabin videos alongside six Night Springs episodes. The former provides glimpses into Wake's missing week, a sneak peek into his revelations, state of mind, and influences.

Alan learns about the constraints of writing a story that shapes reality, and what the risk may be.

Collected as part of the story. As Alan collects the keys from the bathrooms at the end of Episode 2, the TV will suddenly spring to life. 


"A story is not a machine that does what you tell it. A story is a... beast with a life of its own. You can create it. Shape it. But as the story grows, it starts wanting things of its own. Change one thing and you set off a chain reaction of events that spreads through the whole thing. The characters have to be true to themselves. The events need to follow on logic that fits the story. A single flaw and the magic is gone, the story dies... Alice dies.


  • Script Note. The original script provides a direction for how the scene appears; "The light recedes, almost as if it was shining from behind the TV set. On the screen, the study of the Bird Leg Cabin can be seen, as though through a stationary security camera hidden in the wall. The desk is framed by the two round windows. Beyond the windows, there’s only darkness. Wake is looking at the camera, a close-up. The “Touched” effect is flickering now and again."
