Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut Officially Greenlit
After only 6 days on Steam Greenlight, Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut has been pushed through and will officially be joining the Steam Library of games.
Apparently the love and reverence (if not some fanboy-ism) has rocketed this game to the top of the Greenlight submissions. It truly is amazing to see what an avid fan base can do for a game when it seems like it could have just gone through regular channels to get to be on Steam. On top of that, how many up-votes it needed to accrue to get there is vague since Valve does not state how many you need:
The specific number of votes doesn't matter as much as relative interest in a game compared with other games in Steam Greenlight...
In other words, the Force was strong with this one.
Rising Star Games said that they will have more to say about the game once everything is official and in writing. My biggest hope is for modding capabilities. I want to see what the mod community could do with that game and what they might change or fix about it as well. I know I could spend hours making new suits for York.
They seem to be shooting for a Halloween 2013 release which is rapidly closing in. There is nothing about price yet but I am thinking a respectable $40 is what will come through, like the console version.
