Alan Wake 2 Wins an Award “on Home Turf”!

Remedy Entertainment’s game, released last fall, won Game of the Year where it hadn’t before, but it was on the cards.


Last night was the Finnish Game Awards 2024, the annual gala of the Finnish games industry. Eight awards were handed out during the ceremony, celebrating the best games developed in Finland over the past twelve months. As Remedy Entertainment is also based in this Scandinavian country, it’s no surprise that the Finnish Game of the Year award went to Alan Wake 2.

Road to Vostok won in the Best Creative Achievement of the Year category, and Notovia, the indie studio behind the horror series I’m On Observation Duty, won in the Rookie of the Year category. Jesse Makkoen won the W Love Games Excellence award for Afterdream (the title is effectively the women’s category), while influencer Natasha Skult won the Power Player of the Year award. Nova Salmivaara won the IGDA Volunteer of the Year award, and Laura Pispanen won the Jampion of the Year by Finnish Game Jam category (a competition for small garage developments). Team Pendulo won the Bit1 student competition with their game Oddli.

Remedy Entertainment’s revenues for 2023 have dropped by 22.2% to €33.9 million, but the Finnish team remains optimistic. Not even the cancellation of Kestrel, a multiplayer project formerly called Vanguard that was to be published by Tencent and partially funded by the Chinese tech company, played a big role in this. In return, the tech giant has significantly increased its stake in Remedy, now owning nearly 15% of the company.

Remedy is currently working on a sequel to Control, a multiplayer spin-off, and a remake of the first and second Max Payne games. The goal is to create a shared Remedy universe, and the upcoming DLC for Alan Wake will be part of that.
