Deadly Premonition, 12 Others, Succeed On Steam Greenlight
Well, Zach, it looks like we're about to embark on another grand adventure. Just you and me, buddy. Apparently PC gamers want to know more about our latest case in Greenvale. You remember the one? That's right. It was about that town beauty who was found dead in the woods. They turned it into a video game called Deadly Premonition and, thanks to this little thing called Steam Greenlight, it looks like we'll be making a trip to the PC soon. But first, how about a fresh cup of coffee before we hit the road?
In the world of video games, you could say there are two types of people: Those who love Rising Star Games' Deadly Premonition, and those who hated it. Perhaps the most critically divisive game to ever hit the market, I have yet to talk to someone who thought this bizarre tale of murder, mystery and wonder was “just okay.”
Similar to the best works of Stephen Lynch, partially because it was so inspired by the guy's television series, Twin Peaks, Deadly Premonition isn't what you would call your “average video game.” There's an open world, combat, driving, conversations with branching dialogue, loads of NPCs to interact with and more. But it's the vehicle through which those familiar aspects are delivered that sets Deadly Premonition apart. It features aspects that are so bad they become good and, taken as a whole, transform the game into what I consider a truly charming triumph of an experience. It's something you really need to play to understand and, thanks to Steam Greenlight, no more people than ever will finally be able to do exactly that. If you need more convincing you could always check out our review of the game or, if you feel like jumping in for yourself, soon you'll be able to do exactly that on the PC.
We announced last week that Deadly Premonition would be making an appearance on Greenlight, a fan-centric system that lets the players decide which games will arrive on Valve's digital distribution service. Now Steam has announced the latest batch of Greenlit titles, including Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut.
This latest batch of Greenlight success stories include two software titles, Dexster Audio Edito and GraphicEditor openCanvas, as well as 12 games. Along with Deadly Premonition, these titles include A Hat in Time, Among the Sleep, BROFORCE, Centration, Chasm, Darkwood, Divekick, Operation Black Mesa, Project Awakened, Recruits, Rekoil, Shelter and StarMade. It's a big, beefy list of awesomeness, and you can dig into each of those titles by clicking on their individual links within the official announcement.
