Once you get past the meat-and-potatoes of Visual Companion, it takes a sharp turn into pure insanity. There are coloring pages, a maze game, a word search, and the digital equivalent of Colorforms (I’m dating myself again) as additional diversions. It’s so bizarre an idea to include in the iBook about an M-Rated horror game, but it somehow makes perfect sense when it’s springing forth from the brain of SWERY.
Our good buddy SWERY, who also made the completely insane and completely amazing Deadly Premonition, is bringing more of his trademark weirdness to the Xbox One with D4.
The back cover of Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut for the Playstation 3 declares that the original Xbox version was “the most critically polarizing game of recent times.” They aren’t kidding: reviews on Metacritic range from a perfect 100 score to a barrel-scraping 20, with a slew of scores in between.
