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

15th September 2023
Celebrate Deerfest 2023 With Us!
Win EDGE UK October '23 Issue & "Welcome to Bright Falls" Promotional T-Shirt

In the original Alan Wake game, Deerfest was a town-wide celebrating taking place between September 15th - September 18th. The four-day occasion would be a chance to get outdoors, meet your fellow possibly-serial-killer-and-darkness-drenched neighbours, and cheer on the newly designed floats in the annual parade. 

We've got a slightly less intense Deerfest planned, one more designed for nerdy introverts. 

Today, we're setting up a new giveaway in which one lucky Remedy fan will receive an official Alan Wake "Welcome to Bright Falls" t-shirt from the first game's promotional campaign, as well as the October 2023 edition of EDGE Magazine, which features our favourite tweed-wearing writer front and centre. 

Interested? All you have to do is share with us how you discovered the series!

For the prize this time, we are giving away a copy of EDGE Magazine and a Deerfest T-Shirt from an early Alan Wake promotion. 

EDGE Magazine. October 2023 Issue. Featuring Alan Wake 2 on the cover, the October 2023 issue teases an in-depth sixteen-page special on the upcoming game, with exclusive interviews and a rare behind-the-scenes view of the live-action filming. The issue is the perfect collector's item for any Alan Wake fan. 

Deerfest T-Shirt (Medium). Designed for an early promotion for Alan Wake, the "Welcome to Bright Falls" Deerfest t-shirt features the charming mascot (as seen in Deerfest posters across the in-game world) next to a warm greeting to the quiet neighbourhood. Nothing can go wrong in a place that has tourist merch this endearing.

The competition will end on Sunday, September 30th 2023 at 23:59 UTC.

For this giveaway, there will be one (1) winner who will be selected at random from valid entries.
