Original story (May 8) follows.
Deadly Premonition is attempting a comeback--but not as a video game. Following last week's teaser, Rising Star Games today announced a Kickstarter campaign for a board game based on the 2010 video game, which has become something of a cult hit.
The board game is based on the characters, locations, and events from Deadly Premonition. In a news release, Rising Star said the board game is a "passion project" for Rising Star's Samuel Elphick and Saniel Osuna Perez. The adaptation has the blessing of Hidetaka "Swery65" Suehiro, the video game iteration's director.

The board game is a card-based affair for two to four players, with games taking between 30-45 minutes. You take on the role of a detective in search of truth and justice, but there is a killer among the ranks, and the game involves seeking out and bringing this Raincoat Killer to justice.
The Kickstarter campaign goes live tomorrow, May 9, with a goal of $50,000, and an official website can be found here. Click through the images in the gallery below to get a closer look at the box and components, while there is also a picture of Swery holding the game box.
"Our vision was to create a compelling, atmospheric game inspired by Deadly Premonition's delivery of big reveals, plot twists, and consequential moments," Elphick said in a statement. "The venture started out as an idea between colleagues. With hopeful optimism we put together a proposal for Swery and he loved it."
Rising Star says it's launching a Kickstarter for the game instead of funding the project with its own money because the board game market is outside of its normal business ventures. Kickstarter also affords the company an avenue from which to gather feedback about the game, it said. If the crowdfunding campaign is a success, the plan is to have the game out by Fall 2017.
