Holiday Messages from Remedy & Poets of the Fall [Updated]

As offices wrapped up for the holidays, Remedy and Poets of the Fall (the real-life band behind Alan Wake's and Control's Old Gods of Asgard) celebrated the end of the year with festive messages. Both were posted on December 23rd, the day before the main festivities in Finland, although the developers snuck in with an additional letter before the new year. 

First up, Remedy celebrated the holidays with a new piece of festive artwork, designed by their in-house artist, Jenna Seikkula (Junior Concept Artist). 

As we approach the final days of 2020, the studio's Community Manager, Vida Starčević, also wrote a wrap post for the past twelve months, focusing on how the company has switched to remote work, upcoming Crossfire releases, Control's AWE DLC development, and more.

In addition to Remedy's holiday message, Poets of the Fall also recorded their own with Marko Saaresto (vocals) and Olli (lead guitar) on camera and Captain (keyboards) behind the lens. 

Transcript:  "Hi there everybody! It's Marko, Olli and Captain here from Poets of the Fall. We all really wanted to thank you guys for the past year for being there with us, for us, supporting us, and watching the Alexander Theatre session videos on YouTube. Also, we wanted to wish you guys a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! We have lots of awesome stuff coming out for you guys next year, so stay tuned and hope to see you soon. Peace!" 

[UPDATED: 17th January 01:29] Ahead of the Christmas holidays, Petro Alanko (one of two brilliant composers for Control) released Red Glow Tunnel Rush, a piece he had written for The Foundation DLC. The track was uploaded to his Soundcloud where the community can now relive the experience in its five-minute-long entirety. In the description, Alanko goes into depth about the process for the piece, including technical details and Dropbox links for those who want to know a little more about how it was composed.
