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.
