Deadly Premonition creator teases sequels, prequels and special editions

Deadly Premonition is one of the cultiest cult game to be culted in recent memory, so it should come as no great shock that its creators at Access Games are keen on milking its sweet cult juices with no less than a prequel, sequel and special edition.

Speaking at last week's Gamescom in Germany, Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro revealed he and his team were interested in expanding the quirky open-world horror series with games set before and after the original, along with an updated version of the original featuring better graphics.

Since no plans are 100% official, it will likely be a while before Swery's visions become a reality – longer still if he goes through with his other plans to make a whole new game altogether. Until then, you can cult it up with the original version on Xbox 360 via XBLA or the budget-priced physical copy. An English-enabled version of Deadly Premonition (aka Red Seeds Profile in Asia) for the PS3 is also available as an import.

GR has not been shy about its love for Deadly Premonition. True, it did win our Best Worst Games award in the 2010 Platinum Chalice Awards, but we gave it that designation out of genuine love for creative gem of a game that exists beneath the shoddy graphics, cringe-worthy voice acting, and unorthodox gameplay. That said, a polished sequel would be well received, but there's a risk of losing the series' off-beat, low-rent charm in the process.  Are you game?

    What's that Zach? You like the idea of more Francis York Morgan? Me too. :)

    Oh Zach, please say it's true! I've been away from gaming for a while now (physically anyway), but after watching the let's play of this game I'm eager for more. The game's a masterpiece. A dirty one at that, but that doesn't take away my immense affection for it.

    I eagerly await more things Deadly Premonition.

    Happy thoughts.

    Took some strength to see past the faults, controls and dreamcast gfx.... but a revelation to play through. Amazing scripting, story and innovative touches kept me engrossed. Swery has been photo tweeting a visit to Germany & UK recently. Looked like game location research to me. I'm calling a (historical?) euro setting, deadly premonition prequel!

    "You should try this wonderful lunch. It's more than a delicious tasty crunch. So says Mr. Stewart." This game is incredible, I'd love it if they fixed the control scheme for any future games though...

    A deadly premonition sequel/prequel would be a genuine dream come true:D

    Hmm, not sure yet. I bought it on Dave's recommendation and got 2-3 hours in but haven't got back to it for a few weeks. It's rather unsettling, but mainly because I haven't the foggiest what's going on. But the main character is TOO calm, when I'm baffled. I missed some story somewhere?

    I doubt it - don't worry, a lot of things in this game don't make perfect sense, and the characters are all pretty strange. And York is almost the strangest of them all. Just go with it would be my advice, it'll never be perfectly 100% clear but stuff will start making sense as you get further in.

    It IS on PS3? I am so going to import the crap out of that game!!!! OMG!
  • bamtan - August 23, 2011 3:30 p.m.

    please tell me I'm not the only one who read that screen shot in my John Madden voice.
  • Yaro - August 23, 2011 3:49 p.m.

    You're not the only one =))))
  • MeanwhileGuy - August 23, 2011 3:28 p.m.

    I don't even care about Deadly Premonition or any sequels/prequels they make. All I want to say is that that screenshot is the most amazing screenshot of all time, and sums up the game perfectly.

    Why do I have the suspicion Justin Towell had a hand in this?

    Sounds more like Hooters has had a little talk to Swery!
