As part of their marketing for Deadly Premonition, Ignition Entertainment opened several online sources for the latest Deadly Premonition information including an official game website, a facebook page and two twitter accounts! Below you can find links to the different official online media as well as screencaps and summaries of what you can find there.
The official US Deadly Premonition flash website gives an overall summary of the game, characters and various media downloads (desktop wallpapers, avatars and music!). There’s even a small blog on the site where game director posts his thoughts on the game from time to time!
Sometime in late October 2009 Ignition Entertainment set up an official Deadly Premonition Facebook page to share the latest Deadly Premonition news, screens and related stories. Trailers and character information were also posted along with copies of some of SWERY’s blog posts in the pages Facebook notes. Additionally contests were held to win copies of Deadly Premonition after the game’s release and many fans flocked to the page to share their enjoyment of the title on the page wall and the discussion boards.
Sometime in November 2009 Ignition Entertainment set up a twitter account for game protagonist Special Agent Francis York Morgan and another for Greenvale Sheriff, George Woodman as marketing for the upcoming Deadly Premonition.
In the beginning the York’s twitter gave a little taste of what the game was about by making short comments about Greenvale and the start of his investigation.
The official Japanese Red Seeds Profile website gives an overall summary of the game plot, mechanics, specs, characters and has various videos for download. Unfortunately I can’t read Japanese, but it looks like a pretty in-depth site.
The official Japanese Red Seeds Profile Director’s Blog Swery kept from February 2010 – April 2011. SWERY discussed RSP related news and shared insights. After Deadly Premonition became a cult hit in the US and EU SWERY’s posts were translated for English speakers. After this RSP centric blog closed in April 2011 SWERY switched to posting on a new blog called Cafe SWERY 65 that encompases all the titles he works on.
