Deadly Premonition by jmatchead Deadly Premonition by jmatchead
Yea, no pun this time around. Just a demake of SWERY's awesome Deadly Premonition, which I only just finished playing after owning for months.

Wanted this to look a bit like old horror/adventure titles, like the super famicom clock tower. The characters came out a bit more squat than I intended, but ultimately I like the way it turned out.

Actually, no. Shattered Memories is a re-imagining of the original game. SH 2 has James Sutherland going through the forbidden town looking for his dead wife who wrote him a letter.

Sorry, it sounds like I'm disagreeing with your last point. Demakes can be quite interesting.

Ah okay. I don't know too much about the Silent Hill series. I did like Shattered Memories though.

I liked bits and pieces of SM. I loved the atmosphere and the mystery of it all. I disliked the controls and the same old same old monster constantly chasing me.

I really liked the controls for exploration, less so during the chase scenes I guess. I always like the Wii remote as flashlight thing.

But yeah, the atmosphere was the real accomplishment there.

Whoa, this looks fantastic. I can tell at a glance exactly who everyone is, and the scene. And very evocative of older gameplay. ^_^

Great pixel work here, I love the attention to detail, down to even getting York's tapping position down to a T.

No joke, Deadly Premonition was my favorite game of 2009. I like how you managed to capture everyone's body language here.

I'm actually SO flattered that you noticed that, because I paid EXCRUCIATING attention to that very aspect. Thank you!

Deadly Premonition was definitely something I initially only appreciated as a novelty. Once I really got involved in the game, though... it's crazy, but it actually manages to get you invested. There's so much game to love beneath the surface there.

It's also probably the only game to attempt a gameplay mashup of Resident Evil and Legend of Zelda.

Don't get me wrong, Deadly Premonition has a ton of problems. But jeez, every aspect of it is dripping with charm. Like, every second of the game feels like it was put in by hand by a couple of guys who really loved and believed in what they were doing. It's a lot different from the typical design-by-committee trap that a lot of modern games fall into. Not to mention the balls-crazy storyline and the ridiculously large cast of instantly-memorable characters. I'd love to see it come to digital services like XBLA, PSN and Steam, since I don't have a 360 anymore.

Also, it got me into Twin Peaks.

I've heard SWERY wants to do some kind of rerelease, although who knows if that will ever happen.

Quite frankly, its one of the few 360 games I feel justify owning the console.

I agree, DP was most definitely a breath of fresh air. In a market so dominated by exhaustively focus-tested, mass market products, it's really refreshing to experience something so quirky.

Yeah Plus there is just a lot of stuff to do and to check out, and everyone in the town has their own rutines and stuff. it was pretty awesome.

Yeah, it reminded me of Majora's Mask a little bit. A whole lot of little quirks and freedom.

Yeah Totally Agree with you there It was totally Hilarius that you could people Trought the windows and they were just following their Rutine and how every character got connected with Each Other i still havent done Emily´s Challenges i belive they have to do something with Coocking but i have never being able to get them.

I Should Make a Sprite of York Some Day. Right Zach?

I actually never did Emily's challenges either, I didn't even notice them until near the end of the game...

The more Deadly Premonition sprites, the better!
