Bright Falls was a small town, and is the setting for Alan Wake. Bright Falls is a quaint, Pacific Northwest town, implied to be in the state of Washington, due to the letters "WAS" visible on a Bright Falls map. In 2009, renowned writer Alan Wake came here with his wife Alice for a vacation away from his recently troubled life back home. Many bizarre events have occurred in and around the town of Bright Falls, such as the Dark Presence, which happens during the events of Alan Wake.



It is not recorded when Bright Falls was first founded as a nameless trading post, but its first real significance came when the Bright Falls Mining Company opened nearby in 1878. The company turned the small trading post into a town with its own money to provide the miners with entertainment and a place to stay. Shortly afterward, it was turned into a real town when Hubert Biltmore, a Washington fur trapper, came to the mining settlement. He opened a post office, saloon, and a hotel and ran it as a joint operation with his partner, Amos Gunderson, a Tacoma pioneer. The two of them shared the proceeds and erected a monument in their own honor within the town park.

Through their combined efforts, the two men expanded Bright Falls into a more permanent and thriving area. In present day, Bright Falls gained the nickname 'Night Springs', a popular horror television series. Its citizens, who especially favored the series, kept the nickname alive as a typical joke of tradition due to the isolated unsolved mysteries surrounding the town's past and present.
