Sam Lake Guests on Morning Talk Show, Puoli Seitsemän
[English Translation by Hamyheikki]

At the start of the week, Sam Lake (Creative Director at Remedy) appeared on a local morning talk show, Puoli Seitsemän, to talk about the success of Alan Wake 2.

Hosted by Ella Kanninen and Mikko Kekäläinen, the show lasted half an hour and explored topics such as Herald of Darkness performance at The Game Awards, how the team mix mediums, Sam's inspirations growing up, and a whole lot more. For the show, Sam also brought his original clicker, which long-time Alan Wake fans may recognise from his side blog, This House of Dreams
