Where To Find Every TV Show Location in 'Alan Wake Remastered'

The Couch Potato achievement in Alan Wake Remastered tasks players with watching every single television show in the game. Newsweek has prepared the following guide to help you find all 14 of these TV locations.

Despite being a video game developer, Remedy Entertainment is clearly inspired by television more so than anything else, with their fascination for the medium often seeping through into their releases. For instance, Control was heavily inspired by sci-fi shows like The X-Files and Fringe, while Quantum Break actually made you watch full-length installments of a web series between each level.

However, the TV obsession is most evident in Alan Wake. The cult classic is not only segmented into episodes (each of which begin with "previously on" recaps and end with gripping cliff-hangers worthy of Lost) but it also lifts multiple characters and plot points from Twin Peaks.

As if that was not enough, television actually plays a crucial role in the story as well. Throughout the game, our protagonist is confronted with disturbing visions of himself babbling hysterically on TV. These supernatural broadcasts provide a glimpse into a forgotten past that Alan is desperately trying to remember and also divulge important clues about the mystery at the heart of Bright Falls.

The first TV can be found just before you enter the lumbar yard in Episode 1. Remedy Entertainment

Some of the TVs that you come across are airing reruns of an in-universe series, titled Night Springs. Inspired by The Twilight Zone, it is a black-and-white anthology show that deals with the paranormal, narrated by an uncanny Rod Serling impersonator.

In Episode 1, "The Nightmare," you will find the first of these broadcasts just before you enter the lumber yard. As you near the location, you will see a giant log dangling from machinery in the distance.

Before you head towards that point of interest, go inside the control room to your right. In here, there is a TV that will play your introduction to Night Springs.

The first of these broadcasts will be triggered when you enter the gas station towards the end of "The Nightmare."
