Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut for PlayStation 3
Few games polarized the video-game community like Deadly Premonition. Its melding of the suspense-horror, action-adventure, and open-world genres gave excellent framing to a dark Twin Peaks-style plot, which puts players in the role of special agent Francis York Morgan as he investigates the Red Seed murders terrorizing the seemingly all-American mountain town of Greenvale. But the game also repelled some players, developing a reputation for clumsy controls and lazy production value. This director’s cut fixes those two main issues by reworking the game mechanics, updating the graphics to HD resolution, and including a handwritten note that says, “My bad.” Director Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro also revises the beginning and ending scenarios, giving the resolution a more branched feel that better reflects the game’s open-world format filled with side quests and mini games.
