Here's the picture:

Developer Of Cult Classic Games Swery 65 Has Retired From His Studio

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:

Day 360, Unfortunately I retired from Access Games after all. However Don't worry, because my health condition is getting be fine. Love you! pic.twitter.com/xBaLRVApqE

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.
