The "gaming phenomenon" looking to be green-lit.
'Deadly Premonition' hit the scene some three years ago on the 360, but has recently resurfaced. First there was the Director's Cut that came out for the PS3, and now it seems that version is being "enhanced" for a PC release.
From Rising Star Games, "Hi everyone! It's true that Rising Star Games has published a few PC games in the past but, since this is our first release on Steam, we wanted to make it a big one and bring you something special! And let's face it, nothing gets bigger than the gaming phenomenon that is Deadly Premonition!
"We're excited about the idea of bringing you an enhanced version of the already-improved Director's Cut, but to do that – as with any Greenlight project – we need your help. So, if you want to solve the mystery of the Raincoat Killer on PC in the near future, please give us your support and help us make one of the biggest cult hits of the decade a reality on Steam very soon!"
In addition to the Director's Cut content available on the PS3, the PC version will be getting:
A surprising new scenario from the game’s director, Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro
Enhanced HD graphics with new textures
Reworked control system allowing for an even better combat experience
Downloadable content to expand the mystery beyond the original game
New bonus DLC exclusive to the PC version!
On top of these additions, the Steam version will also be getting achievements and Steam trading cards.
Considering the game's huge following, it would be a shock if not enough users marked "Yes" on the game's Steam Greenlight page. Still, until the game is released, it stands to be pulled due to any number of publishing obstacles and other quirks of Steam Greenlight.
