I don't think I've ever heard a collective amount of cheers and sighs so loud as when Swery65's new D4 project was announced -- only to have it become an Xbox One exclusive seconds later. Microsoft had a chance to sit down with Swery himself and talk about a few aspects of the project, like his inspiration, some story bits, and why he went for exclusivity.

Swery says the game is centered around "empathy," and that the Kinect is the best way to express that. He notes that palm shapes can be detected, as well as posture, and voice input -- so the Kinect is perfect for "replicating senses." There is one potential dealbreaker for you a lot of you however -- "All of these controls use Kinect."

Ouch! Stay tuned for some extended thoughts from Swery straight from TGS.

D4 will never appear on PS4, says Swery

I was enamored by D4 recently. Swery's signature charm was all there, and I especially liked that the Kinect-only mechanic was dropped in favor of an optional controller. A lot of people out there have expressed interest in t...more

Our D4 playthrough part 2: send in the clowns

I think the lesson Bill and I learned playing D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is that we need to calibrate the Kinect, and make sure it can see us properly. Beyond that, I'm still unclear what this game is about, and it's vaguely u...more

We attempted to play D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die

Okay, so Chris Carter absolutely loved D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, so Bill and I figured we'd check it out... and uh. Wow. Goodness gracious. That certainly is some sort of video game. I think. Honestly, if I didn't have this whole experience on video, I might think there was a gas leak in my house making us go all stupid and insane.more
