Let There Be Light is an achievement/trophy earned in Alan Wake. The achievement is a story achievement and is obtained in Nightmare.

Achievement Description[]

Before earning:

  • "Get a generator running".

After Earning:

  • "You have restored power".


In Episode 1, you will arrive at the house where Alan and Alice Wake are to stay at to get away. The only problem is, Alice has nyctophobia, which is a fear of the dark, and the sun is slowly going down, so she wishes you to turn the lights on. But nothing in the house seems to be working. You must head outside from the front and you will see a shed that contains the generator. To operate it, you must press A when the little dot enters the green area. After the generator is up and working, you will receive the achievement.

You will find more generators like this many times throughout the game.


  • This is a story achievement as the generator must be working in order to progress in the game, so it is impossible to miss.
