Deadly Premonition Is Getting A New Boardgame, And It Got Funded Almost Immediately



Swery65’s cult hit survival horror game Deadly Premonition saw a Director’s Cut edition as well as a PC release back in 2013, and now it’s getting a new board game that will have you protect the innocent in analog style.


Deadly Premonition: The Board Game has only been up on Kickstarter for about a day, and the board game is already more than fully funded, surpassing its $50,000 goal. As of now, the board game has been funded up to $77,000 and backed by 1,229 total backers.


Here’s an official description of the board game from Rising Star Games:


“We have created a detective themed 2-4 player card-based board game inspired by cult sensation videogame Deadly Premonition, set in the mysterious town of Greenvale, following the Murder of Anna Graham.

In Deadly Premonition: The Board Game you and your fellow detectives must take on the task of protecting the innocent, incriminating the guilty and work out who might not be who they say they are. With a hidden killer amongst the detectives, the race is on to identify a suspect as an accomplice in order track down the true killer.

The mechanics found in Deadly Premonition are unique and original concepts formed around our vision for the game. Embark on competitive battles to manipulate your own board toward a victory condition, while simultaneously sabotaging your co-detectives. There is also a hidden identity element to shake things up and reward observation and intuition.”


For reaching and exceeding the goal, a handful of stretch goals were also met, adding more features to the board game. For passing both the $55,000 and $60,000 marks, a total of four bonus cards were added, and a new weather condition was added to the game for achieving the $65,000 stretch goal. In addition, backers who pledge at least $30.00 will receive both a copy of the game and a Steam key for Deadly Premonition’s Director’s Cut while pledges of $3.00 will include a free copy of the Director’s Cut on Steam.
