Video Game Theater – Bright Falls: Episode 1 (Oh Deer)

Bright Falls is a six-part web series that serves as a prequel to third-person shooter horror action game, Alan Wake. The miniseries follows tormented novelist Jake Fischer as he goes to the small town of Bright Falls to find the inspiration he needs to finish his latest book and escape from his home life.

Thankfully, the web series retains most of the elements that make the game so distinctive, so there’s mystery, horror and a very unsettling atmosphere. In addition, the tie-in series of Bright Falls is really well put together and is a great introduction to the series especially for those who haven’t had the chance to play Alan Wake yet.
