Last month I was inspired to make the 65 trading cards you can collect in game a reality after seeing a fabulous fan made Deadly Premonition playing card deck over on Deviantart. I finished the set over the Thanksgiving weekend and just received the printed cards in the mail today! They came out great!
The card fronts are a screencap of the card as you see it in-game but with some touchups: I re-typed the text, redrew the solid color border elements and made other minor edits (like fixing the spelling of “Turkey” on the Turkey sandwich card) so the final print would be a bit crisper overall. The card backs design is entirely my own creation using the in-game card descriptions, my own game screencaps and a stock photo or two.
So what do you guys think?
I would love to give a set to SWERY and I plan on giving away a set as a prize in a contest for the site but I’m not sure what it will entail just yet… I’ll keep you posted!
The contest is a go! Details can be found here!
I was also able to get a set to SWERY :)!
What a great deal! Deadly Premonition is only $10.88 on Amazon! If you haven’t picked up the game yet this is a perfect time
I’ve added SWERY’s full GDC 2011 lecture, Game Design in the Coffee, transcript to the site along with any relevant slides and photos I could find around the web.
Added list of all the available weapons in Greenvale with their locations, pictures and in-game descriptions.
I’ve made some slight edits to the 100% guide to include the two extra department lunches I didn’t realize were available in Chapter 3 and Chapter 4!
