An unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness within Greenvale, Deadly Premonition challenges players to solve its mysteries while surviving the horrors that lurk in the shadows.


Dive into the eerie world of Deadly Premonition, where mystery and horror intertwine in the investigation of the Red Seed Murders.


“Deadly Premonition” begins with the ritualistic murder of a young girl in the small town of Greenvale. Eccentric FBI agent Francis York Morgan is called in to investigate the mystery. As he delves deeper into the case, more supernatural elements slowly find their way into the series of events.

The murder may be related to other killings that York is investigating, all of which have one thing in common – the seeds of a strange red tree found at each crime scene. The town’s sheriff and his deputies assist York in his investigation, which quickly focuses on the town’s legend of the raincoat serial killer.

York also consults with his invisible friend called Zach. During the game, York keeps switching between the normal world and the world of shadows where he must avoid various dangers while continuing his investigation there. As evidence, visions, and bodies start piling up, York realizes that there may be much more to this case than simply catching a deranged serial killer.

The game’s development was guided by an intention to imbue it with a sense of realism. The non-player characters follow an individualized 24-hour schedule, and the scale of Greenvale is intended to replicate that of a rural American town. Issues with memory allocation, various lighting and shadow aspects, and the physics engine PhysX were faced during development.


Francis York Morgan, the mysterious axe-wielding killer, and the diverse inhabitants of Greenvale, each contributing to the story’s depth.


A blend of horror, action-adventure, and mystery-solving in an open-world setting, featuring combat, investigation, and exploration.


Deadly Premonition stands out for its unique blend of genres, engaging story, and unforgettable atmosphere, despite any flaws it may have.
