It continues to amaze me how PC gaming seems to be going through a bit of a renaissance at the moment. Not that it ever died off, but over the past year or so more titles that were originally console only have gotten PC ports. The latest comes as a surprise, as I never thought Deadly Premonition would get a PC port, but here we are. Rising Star has announced that The Director’s Cut version which came out on PS3 earlier in the year will come to PC and include additional features. It’s on Steam Greenlight and an official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but check out a PC teaser trailer below. Deadly Premonition is one of those games that’s hard to describe and best if you just experience it yourself, but the trailer should give you an idea of the quirkier nature of this horror/action adventure game.

Los Angeles, Calif. – July 18, 2013 – Rising Star Games, a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, today announced that the critically acclaimed Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is now available to vote for on Steam Greenlight worldwide.
