Listen up, fans of intriguing storytelling, because I have a great game for you. Oh hang on, I should have been more specific. I’m looking for fans of intriguing storytelling who also enjoy cars that drive like shopping trolleys with a stick jammed in one wheel, intermittent game crashing, an excess of QTEs and some frankly tedious game mechanics.
A while back, the murder mystery known as Deadly Premonition made its way over the Steam Greenlight hurdle, shedding its console-exclusivity for the nice little home on the personal computer. Whether from lack of resources or an effort to make Deadly Premonition's mystery even more obfuscated, the game's resolution has unfortunately been locked to 720p. Thankfully, the modder who created the practically-required DSfix for Dark Souls (and goes by Durante) has made a mod to break Deadly Premoniton's resolution lock.
Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut, or the update to what I like to call “Twin Peaks: The Video Game,” is bringing its coffee fortunes, raincoat killers, and other survival horror nonsense to your PC this Halloween.
Valve have given a new load of games their seal of approval - or rather you have, doing Valve's job for them so they have more time to make hats and trading cards and Half-Life 5. The headline here is that one of the 14 games greenlit is the...unique Deadly Premonition, Swery's ridiculous survival horror love letter to David Lynch. But that's not all! Roguelikey metroidvania Chasm is also heading to Steam, along with its good friends Among The Sleep and Operation Black Mesa. But that's still not all! There are also ten more. OK, that's all. Hear them in list form after the break.
In an appropriately weird twist, surreal, cult Xbox 360 survival horror game Deadly Premonition has - out of nowhere - spawned a PC version. It's currently sitting in the Greenlight queue, hoping to trap unwary visitors with its promises of coffee and the improvements of the PS3's Director's Cut version, with some PC exclusives thrown in. If this is the first time you've heard of the game: yes, there is a trailer; no, it doesn't really help.
