If you’ve played Control, you’re undoubtedly aware of its connections to Alan Wake. Much like the way Marvel seamlessly wove together its cinematic universe, Remedy has masterfully connected its games through a web of intricate narratives, easter eggs, or references.
The Remedy-Connected-Universe, or RCU for short, is the term used by Sam Lake (Creative Director at Remedy) to describe the ever-expanding universe their games now take place in. To make it simple; a Remedy game is laden with potential connections to a wider, interconnected world.
As part of their month-long coverage, IGN released a new video that helps explain what the RCU entails, how it came to be, and how it might evolve. The video is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship that Remedy Entertainment has invested in their universe, shedding light on how characters, themes, and lore interconnect throughout their titles.
So, whether you’re a newcomer eager to dive into this captivating universe or a seasoned fan looking to deepen your understanding, this video on IGN is a must-watch that promises to ignite your curiosity and enthusiasm for the RCU.
