Hidetaka Suehiro (AKA Swery 65) a popular developer associated with cult games like Deadly Premonition and D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, has announced he's retiring from his studio Access Games. Swery made the announcement on Twitter last night:

Swery took a break last year from developing games due to reactive hypoglycemia. He had hoped to return to games development after a short break. Sadly, it looks like that won't be the case though he reports his health is improving. It's worth noting that the tweet here explicitly says "Access Games," and not the games industry as a whole so there might be a chance he returns to development outside of Access Games one day.

For a look at Swery's work, be sure to check out our Chronicles of Deadly Premonition.


Our Take
Whatever you may think of Swery's games, they are bizarre and their own kinds of beasts, something you can't say about most video games. We hope that Swery's health continues to improve and that maybe we'll see more games spring from his delightful mind one day.
