Deadly Premonition Creator Swery Leaves Studio

Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro, the mastermind behind Deadly Premonition, is retiring from Access Games. He’d been on sabbatical for almost a year while recovering from illness, but today announced he’s properly leaving. His future plans are hazy but I do hope he’s well and I’ll keep an eye on what he does. Deadly Premonition is wonky at best, and really buggy on PC, but has such heart and embodies such warmth that I adore it and think very fondly of him. He’s a certified Buddhist priest, you know.

Deadly Premonition Designer’s D4 Coming To PC

D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is an episodic adventure directed by Hidetaka Suehiro, who you may know as SWERY, creator of Deadly Premonition, gaming’s very own Marmite. I hate Marmite and you can figure out how I feel about Deadly Premonition by reading my review.

Last time I read about D4, SWERY had mentioned poor sales and fans were trying to help with promotion. Exclusive to Xbox Uno, the game released without any fanfare and then withered on the vine. I remember thinking a PC port might help and now, here we are.
