Correlation with Twin Peaks
As Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake
from 2010, Deadly Premonition
seems greatly inspired by the cult TV-show Twin Peaks
. One of the resemblances is "The Red Room" used in the pause menu of the game and plays a larger role in the game's story late in the game. Similarly, Twin Peaks
features a red room as well. In Twin Peaks
, however, The Red Room
serves as an analogy to hell and is inhabited by demonic forces.
