I Wanna Axe You A Question by vert-is-ninja I Wanna Axe You A Question by vert-is-ninja
Hahahaha, my own terrible pun kills me. Hahah. Heh.

Okay, so I really like this game. Yes, I know it's not really that scary, yes I know it has other faults, but over all I really couldn't help but REALLY ENJOY myself as I played.

Let's face it, I have this weird crush on Alan Wake. Yes, I know he's bitchy -- I know he opens the game by throwing some sort of weird man tantrum, with flailing arms and irrational anger abound, but something about him just really grew on me. The game had me laughing more than it had me jumping or being scared but the subject matter was still dark, and as we all know ME very well, I love dark stories that I can laugh at.

Alan's character was funny. And they couldn't even help but poke fun at him. Remedy was aware of what they were doing. The times when Alan would go "who the hell designed this?!" to when his best friend criticizes him for being a smoldering man with anger issues when things didn't go his way in the funniest way imaginable made it all the better.

I mean it's TRUE, Alan. You have anger issues. And for all the weird layers you wear, and how you run out of breath sprinting for five seconds and start staggering, for how you collect coffee thermoses throughout the game with no TRUE purpose, for how you perpetually have some sort of incredulous face, and how somehow you really don't give a shit after a whole forest full of loggers have thrown axes at your face, I love you.

And this is a testament to that! Hope you guys enjoy. :>

:D Alan and his anger issues are fantastic! I love it how he went angry while waiting with his friend the chair. :D Oh and the best part of the game was the moment when he punched Hartman in the face. But the other characters are great as well. :D Tor and Odin for example! Those two are really cute in a crazy way. :D

Remedy did a great job and Ilkka Villi was perfect as model for Alan. ♥

the expression of your alan is really greate. :D It show his character in the right manner. :D

But we shouldn't make fun about his choice of clothing. D: Maybe without all the layers of pullovers and jackets he would freeze when he runs alone in the dark through the woods.
D: Oh! And what about those axeguys? I don't think that I could stand like nothing happens after a crazy guy cast his axe at me. ;D so... Maybe he wears sweaters with Armour+ 10???

is it perhaps more like:"I wanna axe you a question, sir... are you the Doctor?" :slow:

hahah, hah, yeah, if you don't get this, just ignore me and this little silly comment :XD:
Olive-Owl Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Great expressions in this! :lol:
I really liked the concept and just the overall environment in this game. Alan was such a weird character but I loved how he just rambled to himself throughout the game XP That highly amused me for some reason. Great work!

This game sounds like a winner! I very much enjoy his facial expressions and the way you used the textures *_*
RobotMagpie Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010  Student General Artist
Ohohoho! I concur!

I'm such a little bitch when it comes to video games, and the first time I played the CAMERA kicked my ass so hard I didn't see a thing.

I got used to it though and then realized that the environments were some of the best I had seen! Ever! Oh, yeah, but the expressions left much to be desired.

Not to mention the fact that all aspirations I had to be a writer were doused the moment everything went melodramatically to hell. It's kinda sad...

That IS a lot of layers. :nirvana:

Lol I love that pun! I'm begining to believe that 1. My humour is taking a baaaad turn and 2. I'm the only one who lols everytime in L4D2 when Rochelle says that pun while picking up an axe. Cracks me up everytime! :giggle:

Cool character and I like the mood in the picture. :3

I have no clue to what game you are referring, but the lighting in this piece is pretty darn amazing.

Oh, and is it safe to assume it has been brought?
Marla-chan Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010
i have 2 trains of thought from this:

1. the cobra starship song from snakes on a plane began to play in my head and
2. "canna axe joo a keshtun?" "no, but you may ask me a question."

I personally love when the axes come flying out of the woods or when the loggers just ninja out of the bushes to CHOP YOU IN THE FACE!!!
Good times.

wilithien Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010
The best part for me was how they carted that cut out of Alan around the whole time! And how Barry did that impersonation with it. Priceless. XD
eternitytiger Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010
Oh man, I so want this game now
CatAlex Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010
I think I liked bitchy man-tantrum, paparazzi punching Alan (and it was sweet/tad scary how determined to get his wife back he was, but I would spend my time actually playing as Alan shouting at him to run faster, dammit, like some sort of crazed drill sergeant. The game itself isn't scary but there were gameplay moments when I'd be out of batteries and ammo (because I suck) and would panic, lol. Love the expressions you give him and his wonderful hoodie!

Gawd, I can't wait to play this game. <3

LMAO he sounds awesome. It's true, ya gotta love stories that can laugh at themselves. Guys with anger issues have LOTS of potential for being laughed at!

Also I love the way you drew that "MEEP" face. XD

It's such a camp game, but I love it.

Nice work!
