In a shock cameo on the Future Game Show, Deadly Premonition creator Swery65 introduced the speedy launch of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise on Steam, bringing the game to PC from Nintendo Switch for the primary time.
More than a decade in the past, Deadly Premonition requested the query, “What if we took Shenmue and mixed it with Twin Peaks?” The consequence was janky, surreal, and unforgettable. Its previously Switch-exclusive sequel upped the ante, presenting the conundrum, “What if we took Shenmue and mixed it with True Detective?”
This newest surreal distillation of the final status cop show Swery65 watched is a simultaneous prequel and sequel to the unique game, adopting the framing sequence of a washed up, modern-day Agent Morgan recalling the case he took simply previous to the occasions of Deadly Premonition 1 within the late 2000s. You might nearly take a look at this as Deadly Premonition’s personal Fire Walk With Me.
We’ll must see if getting unshackled from the Switch’s puny Tegra X1 processor is sufficient to remedy Deadly Premonition 2 of its efficiency woes, however I can already verify that, stylistically a minimum of, it is a worthy successor to the primary game’s goofy, creepy homicide thriller. If you share the identical mind illness that makes me love these video games and haven’t got a Nintendo Switch, Deadly Premonition 2 for PC is at the moment on sale for $28, 30% off.
