Swery65 Returns to Game Development, Launches Osaka-Based White Owls Studio

Hidetaka ‘Swery65’ Suehiro is known for creating wildly different, often polarizing games like Deadly Premonition, and D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die.

He left his studio Access Games and went on hiatus from game development from his medial issues, stemming from reactive hypoglycemia.

Now, Swery has announced (also via Famitsu) his triumphant return to game development, and what’s more, he’s opened a brand new studio in Osaka.

“DAY437. Finally I opened my own studio “White Owls Inc” in Osaka. I can say ‘I AM BACK!!'” the creator said on Twitter.

Further details weren’t confirmed, but we’re hoping it won’t be long before we see his first new game.

    This is great news. I’ve played some of Deadly Premonition and I loved what I played of it, and I love what I’m playing of D4. The creativity and lunacy of those games really set them apart from the crowd.

    Well, here’s hoping for some original non-mobile quality games.

    A quick browse through their website reveals they’ve already got a foot in the mobile market via Swery X Adult Swim Games. Kinda dampens my mood on it, but hopefully Swery will come out swinging with some crazy again on devices Gamers actually care about.

    I mean, Adult Swim helped make Duck Game happen, and that game is more fun than human sinners should be allowed to have. ASxSWERY is something I can get behind!
