The Good Life from Swery has a story trailer

Swery65 once got in some trouble for trying to take us to Rainy Woods, back when it was the title of Deadly Premonition and back when it was a little too legally infringey upon Twin Peaks. We're going back to Rainy Woods, albeit in a much different form, as Swery welcomes us to The Good Life. We have our first real look at what the…

Taste Swery’s The Good Life in prototype demo

To Tom and Barbara, the good life means escaping the rat race to farm in their suburban garden and pash. To Kanye West, the good life feels like Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, or summertime Chicago. To Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro, The Good Life is his next game about rural murder and mystery. Swery and his White Owls studio are currently trying…

Swery on the cats and countryside of The Good Life

Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, director of cult favourite Deadly Premonition, recently relaunched a crowdfunding campaign for his studio's latest project, The Good Life. It’s a life sim murder mystery in a sleepy British village, where the inhabitants have a habit of turning into domestic animals. Once a month, everyone changes into a cat or dog, allowing you to roam the village at night and visit previously…

Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro has split from Access Games and founded his own studio to make The Good Life [Fig page], a murder-mystery daily life RPG set in an English village -- the happiest in the world, the locals will tell you -- where everyone turns into…

The Good Life is… Midsomer Murders plus cat capers!

A while ago I announced that I would love for Penelope Keith to start doing the tutorials in games like Call of Duty [supporter post link]. Imagine how quickly you would improve with Margo Leadbetter shouting "Here’s how to use a variable grenade, you ghastly little child" across the training ground. When Alice pointed out a game called The Good Life a week or so…

Deadly Premonition director’s The Good Life visits a town where people turn into cats

We're off to a small English town where everyone turns into cats at night with the first game from the new studio of Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro. The Good Life [future Fig page] is a "daily life RPG" with a dash of mystery, roaming the town as a human by day and by night exploring places only cats can go. I adore nosing…

Deadly Premonition is the game worth saving from 2013

Every game released before 2015 is being destroyed. We only have time to rescue one game from each year. Not those you’ve played to death, or the classics that the industry has already learned from. We’re going to select the games that still have more to give. These are the Saved Games. Deadly Premonition, in many respects, is one of the worst games I’ve ever…

Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro, the mastermind behind bestworstbest game Deadly Premontion, has started his own studio. He left longtime home Access Games in 2016 after being away for a year's convalesce, and apparently he's not going back. His new studio is White Owls, based in Osaka.

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…

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…

Deadly Premonition review

Deadly Premonition is fascinating, broken, bizarre, enormous, boring, brilliant and absolutely unsuitable to play on my PC (Durante's fix helps though). I’ve laboured through more crashes than SID-H3, as well as wrestling with awkward mouse and keyboard controls. Eventually I resorted to playing in a window because that seemed to cause fewer collisions with the desktop. I wouldn’t have persevered for a lesser game, even…

You Don’t Know Zach: Deadly Premonition

The weird, wooden and wonderful world of Deadly Premonition is just around the next curve in the road. The bizarre survival horror game may be on Steam as early as November 1st. If you haven't played the game in its previous console incarnations, I'd suggest that you avoid reading or watching too much about it. There are reasons that people, myself included, hold the game…

Damn Fine: Deadly Premonition Coming To PC

I don't play many console games at the moment. My 360 has curled up in a corner, snoring like a pig in a hurricane, and the PS3 hobbled back from the retirement home to entertain me The Last of Us and its brilliant reinterpretation of the great Westward journey. State of Decay has a certain allure but I'll wait for the PC version. Over drinks…
