Deadly Premonition completely split the critics upon its release last year, winning awards and perfect scores in some instances, while getting completely lambasted and receiving low scores like a 2 out of 10 in others. Suffice to say, people didn't quite know what to make of it, but it managed to develop a cult following regardless.
You play as FBI agent, Francis York who must solve the ritualistic, brutal murder of a local girl, while maintaining his daily personal hygiene and nutritional requirements by shaving, showering and eating, lest the townsfolk think that you smell and react to you accordingly. Along the way, you'll follow a trail of clues and bodies to supernatural creatures, eccentric locals and a floklore killer dressed in a bloody raincoat. Deadly Premonition also features side-quests and mini-games like fishing and darts.
“Deadly Premonition is a quirky and unique title we are proud to have published,” says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. “We knew there was an audience for the title and we delivered them the game they wanted. Now Deadly Premonition is on Games on Demand it will give even more people a chance to marvel at this completely individual title and decide for themselves what they think of the most controversial title of 2010.”
Deadly Premonition will be coming to Games on Demand from July 5th, 2011 for an as yet unspecified price.
