What is Deadly Premonition? Deadly Premonition is an utterly unique and bizarre experience. Simultaneously awful, endearing and bemusing all at once. This weird and wonderful little gem was created by Access Games, a small Japanese company typically taking lesser projects for other studios, remastering and occasionally brewing up their own IPs. Deadly Premonition is set in the rural American town of Greenvale and casts you as the borderline schizophrenic FBI detective Francis York Morgan as you are tasked with uncovering the culprit of the gruesome murder of a local girl. Sounds like someone likes Twin Peaks.
