If a game had to be compared to David Lynch’s TV show Twin Peaks, many would say that Swery’s Deadly Premonition was the best product that anyone could have asked for. As it turns out, there was actually another game developed in Japan that directly referenced the show, and strange enough, it was doing a lot of things that games were not doing at the time.
Mizzurna Falls is a game that takes place in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado after the murder of a high school girl named Kathy Flannery disrupts the town’s quiet lifestyle. All of the personalities from the game’s inspiration are here: the smart-ass high schooler, the friendly sheriff, the sheriff’s receptionist. There is even someone named “Wolf.” There is no FBI agent that comes into town, though. There had to be some differences between this game and its inspirational material. Instead the player follows a high schooler named Matthew Williams who seems to have a romantic relationship with the murder victim.
