Deadly Premonition companion eBook offers behind-the-scenes scares

A new eBook companion for Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut drops on October 15, offering 352 pages of behind-the-scenes scares, sketches, and original art, along with the game's soundtrack and soundboard.


It's hard to picture the mind of Hidetaka "Swery65" Suehiro, creator of the survival horror Deadly Premonition. However, a new digital book called Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut Official Visual Companion promises to give fans a unique glimpse into the Swery65's psyche, as well as supplement the overall Deadly Premonition experience before the Director's Cut arrives on PC.

The Visual Companion features 352 pages containing over 100 interactive elements and hidden secrets about Deadly Premonition. It will also feature entries from Swery65's notebook detailing the making of the game, along with concept sketches and hi-res art. If that isn't enough to send chills down your spine, you can also listen to the game's soundtrack or mess around with an included soundboard.

Players will also be able to play around with three interactive maps that show everything in the game. So be forewarned that this book may contain spoilers for the game. It's available now on iBooks for iPad for $9.99.
