We finally saw video of the long-time coming Alan Wake in action yesterday at Microsoft's mega-keynote, and here it is for you to squint at and pore over. Yes, it's slightly shaky, so you'll have to forgive us for that. Mostly because we were still in shock that the game is finally seeing the light of day. See what we did there?

It's definitely moody and spooky, and it looks like your best friends will be spotlights, flare guns, and a trusty flashlight. We're hoping that Microsoft and developer Remedy will jump on the bandwagon now and start packaging this thing with a nightlight peripheral, because you're going to need it to sleep at night after playing this next Spring.
