"I'm also working on a story about a high school girl detective who uses the imagination (fantasising) energy from masturbating to help her solve murders. But all the publishers keep telling me 'There's no way we could put out such a perverted game!'...I wish someone would let me make it," he said.

Suehiro also revealed that the studio he works at, Access Games, is currently working on Virtual Reality "stuff." When asked about the possibility of returning to the Deadly Premonition series, he said, "Deadly Premonition is always on my mind. But I have no idea what form it'll take, when it’ll appear, who I'll work on it with, or how I’ll present it. The only answers are in the coffee."

Access Games' most recent release is a quirky murder-mystery game titled D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die. The game debuted on Xbox One last year and has netted more than 1.3 million downloads since its launch, although this includes the period when the game was offered as a free download for Xbox Live subscribers. A PC version of the game will be released on June 5 via Steam, GOG, the Humble Store, and Playism.

Upon D4's release, the game was scored 7.0 by GameSpot. Reviewer Kevin VanOrd praised its ridiculous story and atmosphere, while lamenting its stereotypical characters and several slow stretches that bogged down the pace.

Travis Touchdown says, "been there, done that."

My tip for development is to just abstract it. Keep it just ambiguous enough to pass ratings, and for the love of gob DON'T straight up tell the publishers that detail.

@godfather830: Pffft. No, I know some ladies that dream of such things. Hence the genre: Literotica. Then again, only real men know these things. LOL

Protagonist: "Someone's been murdered. I need to touch myself."

Now that is art.

Having once been a teenage boy, if masturbation gave you any powers, I would have solved world hunger, poverty, race relations, faster-than-light speed travel, peace in the Middle East, etc.

Lol. Just put up a crowd funding page for himself if no other platform will accept it. Though I expect some unique insight into female masturbation that guys can understand. I am not into girl self-play just for the hell of it.

Ahh ok...Hadn't been following D4, but have heard it is a 1/2 way decent game. I have played Deadly Premonition tho and didn't know it was developed by the same person. To be honest I couldn't finish DP, mostly due to how terrible driving the automobile was. Driving the car felt like I was driving after downing a 12 pack while munching on a bottle of Oxys. Otherwise, the game had some charm and I wanted to see how the story panned out... but the combination of the terrible driving and horrible map made this not possible.


Let's hope D4 makes it over to PS someday.

@UnbornCorpser@krazken: no one is allowed to experience joy in his world the human race will die out because the act of simulating procreation is wrong. so one can assume the act of procreation is also disgusting in his world as well

@suppaphly42@UnbornCorpser@krazken: That is what I assumed his stance was on it but that would only be speculation until he says so himself.

Regardless is that a Drow avatar?

@Thanatos2k@UnbornCorpser@krazken: Unless you have been blind to some of the franchises/series, not limited to video games, that have been out like La Blue Girl this idea isn't new. It's an attempt to make massive sales with sex appeal if you can't see that you are either blind or you desire this game.


Personally I don't care if it gets made or not but denying what it is would just be ignorance.

@UnbornCorpser@Thanatos2k@UnbornCorpser: It's also rather ignorant to claim that sex appeal is the only thing it's striving for. Nothing real with sex appeal IMHO, however if it relies exclusively on sex, it gets boring quickly.

@bluefox755@UnbornCorpser@Thanatos2k@UnbornCorpser: Ignorant? The game would be based on her masturbating to progress in it. I don't see how that isn't sex appeal driven and it more than likely would have a B-rated plot or worse. Power to those who want or like it but once more denying what something is just makes you look silly.

That is literally the plot from La Blue Girl, except Miko uses it to travel between worlds (dimensions).
