Max Payne Summary
The more you think about it, the more you can argue that Max Payne - and quite a few other action games - are greatly exaggerated stream of events. But in the direct case of Max Payne, there's a strong chance that it was Max himself doing the exaggeration.
Sam Lake is a name most of us have heard of. Once the only writer over at Remedy Entertainment, he's responsible for the group's continued success with narrative-driven games like Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break. He's also the master of having his games recognise his own name.
With Remedy's co-founder and face of Max Payne - Sam Lake - appearing at all sorts of media events over the last month, it stands to reason he and his company wish to expand their grasp on the industry. And if a proposed IPO goes as planned, Remedy Entertainment will be well on their way to that goal.
Remedy Entertainment is always said to be working on something, but they're never very clear as to what it is. Things start, things end and then they're making games for other companies. According to Gamespot, however, they've finally (officially) starting on something new.
Quantum Break released less than a year ago, but even with the Steam release happening just a few short months ago, Remedy Entertainment already seem set on revealing one of the two projects they've admitted to having in the pipeline.
