In order to unlock nightmare mode, you must first complete the game once.

Camera Position: (Xbox 360 cheat)

When your character (Alan Wake) lingers in the center of the screen even though you are clicking on the movement stick (L3 or R3) you can move him to the side of the playfield by pressing the viewing stick ALL the way left or right until he rotates completely once. Doing this will push his body to one side allowing you to see what is in front of you. Cheat submitted by Sanzano.
