Deadly Premonition: The Board Game is based on the memorably offbeat characters, creepy locations and unsettling events that unfold in the 2007 cult classic video game Deadly Premonition, from acclaimed game developer Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro. The board game is created and devised as a passion project by Samuel Elphick and Daniel Osuna Perez, two members of the Rising Star Games team, and has Swery’s full blessing.
Deadly Premonition fans and board gamers are invited to journey to the town of Greenvale once again, and don the sharp suits and quick wits of police detectives in the wake of Anna Graham’s murder, at the hands of the nightmarish Raincoat Killer. Full details about the flow of gameplay, the rules, the different types of cards and their effects, can be found on the Kickstarter page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/
