So apparently SWERY, the mastermind behind Deadly Premonition, and Access Games made Lord of Arcana?  Had this not been brought up before?

Yes it has. As I recall, he said he was doing it for the cash and isn't too in to the project.

Huh.  Well, it is a business, after all.

Quiet, Hitlerchu.  I can decide that for myself.

Bringing that up made me browse the image gallery for it, and I feel the need to point this out:

Huh, I knew Access Games developed it, but I didn't know he was actually involved with it. The demo is pretty awful, though the combat is mildly entertaining in a really mindless way. Seems like it would get old pretty quickly.

@Make_Me_Mad:  You know how some guys like to put pictures of women on their guitars or surfboards and what have you? 
 
This isn't like that at all.

Speaking of Swery, On one of Jeff's iphone videos he seemed to mention that they were going to see Swery speak at GDC. 
 
Man, I hope this is true and that they talk about it on the podcast.

Well, at least he's being honest about it.

SWERY?! Crap, now another crappy game I have to look into because SWERY's name is attached and I'm obsessed with Deadly Premonition. This is how I ended up playing Spy Fiction.

Swery is probably my favourite person in the whole games industry. I saw him mention Lord of Arcana on Twitter a bunch but most of his tweets about it were in Japanese so I didn't really know what it was. He doesn't seem to have as much passion for it as he does for DP though.
