The Deadly Premonition Board Game hits its Kickstarter goal in one day

Deadly Premonition Board Game

Rising Star Games’ Deadly Premonition board game is quickly funded on Kickstarter.

Love it or loathe it, Deadly Premonition was a memorable video game experience. Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro’s 2007 survival horror title had plenty of critics, but it nonetheless became a cult hit. As with much of Swery’s work, the game nurtured a sense of devotion from its supporters, who defended its idiosyncratic design choices and oblique narrative to the hilt.

Two of the game’s biggest fans are evidently Samuel Elphick and Daniel Osuna Perez, from publisher Rising Star Games. They have devised a 2-4 player card-based game based upon Deadly Premonition that returns players to the town of Greenvale as detectives on the trail of the Raincoat Killer. The project has received a full endorsement from Swery in a typically bonkers video statement.

The game’s Kickstarter campaign launched yesterday with a $50,000 goal. At the time of writing it has been backed to the tune of £76,000, with 29 days still to go.

Samuel Elphick, project co-creator, said in a press statement:

“Our vision was to create a compelling, atmospheric game inspired by Deadly Premonition’s delivery of big reveals, plot twists and consequential moments. The venture started out as an idea between colleagues. With hopeful optimism we put together a proposal for Swery and he loved it. Way back in June 2015 we created our first prototype for “Incrimination”, which was the skeleton that Deadly Premonition: The Board Game is built upon… We hope you enjoy!”

If you’re interested in backing the project, there’s plenty of time left to do so. The anticipated delivery date of the final board game to backers is the end of 2017, but as always with crowd-funded projects there is always the chance of a delay.
