Hidetaka “SWERY″ Suehiro has announced that he will be “taking a short break from game development” due to health concerns. The developer behind Deadly Premonition and D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die revealed that he is suffering from reactive hypoglycemia on the Access Games blog.
“I’m already slow enough at making games as it is, and I feel like all I ever do is make my fans wait…But I’ve decided that I need to take a rest here, so that I can hopefully continue to make games in the future.
“When I recover from my illness, I’m going to do my best to make games that are better and more awesome than ever before! Please keep cheering Access Games on!”
Suherio has always shown his passion for game design, even if his off-beat experiences garner mixed reactions from all. We wish him a speedy recovery and await his return to the industry.
