Behold, D4's chilling grand finale... or something. Whatever

Sometimes playing video games is a fun experience and everyone enjoys themselves. Other times, someone winds up screaming at the TV. That's life. However, I can't remember the last time I found myself screaming "Eat the f*cki...

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 upsetting to try and make sense of it.

It feels a bit like some kind of crossover between Cheers and The Butterfly Effect, but through a glass darkly, and from within a thick cloud of paint fumes. Is that a good thing? I don't know. But we sure look stupid playing it.

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.

D4 starts off rather grounded. The game's opening narration describes the tale as a "story of a man with a very strange fate." A man whose wife was murdered, and is tirelessly searching for her killer.

Then a cat girl named Amanda runs into your apartment, spits a mouse into your mouth, and you puke.

Was that headline not descriptive enough for you? What did you think would be in this post? There's Swery nonchalantly holding a stuffed monkey next to a weird yellow plastic statue thing. He did that during the entirety of h...

D4, Swery65's Xbox One Kinect game, is wonderfully weird
by Dale North

Upcoming Xbox One title D4 was designed for use with Microsoft's Kinect sensor. Game director Hidetaka "Swery65" Suehiro made it a point to stress this during our Tokyo Game Show meeting. D4 can be played with a controller, but his personal preference is that you play it with Kinect.

When we saw all of the weird things you can do with your hands in D4, this makes perfect sense. D4 looks fun to play with Kinect controls.

Murder mystery D4 sure looks like another Swery65 game photo
Murder mystery D4 sure looks like another Swery65 game

The director of Deadly Premonition is back with a Kinect game called D4. Among the Xbox One exclusives shown at E3, this was right up there as one of the most attention-grabbing. After meeting with Swery65 and Microsoft Studios producer Yutaka Noma to get a hands-off look at the game, I can happily say that this is going to be another weird one. Possibly even weirder than the aforementioned cult classic. Yes, we're in for a wild ride.

D4 is an episodic murder mystery game, as you might've heard. It also uses Kinect, which will surely be met with some groans, but I will say that it's at least not the kind of motion- and voice-controlled game that necessitates standing. Swery mentioned how he wants players to be able to sit down and eat popcorn while they play the title. He seemed adamant about popcorn, specifically. Does he feel free to be more "weird" after the success of Deadly Premonition? Not really. "Just my style," he laughed.

The protagonist of D4 is a private detective who can go back in time "under certain circumstances"; essentially, touching mementos connected to memories allows him to dive into the past. He intends to go back to find out who murdered his wife and ultimately save her, even if he knows it will likely be an impossible task.

The demo took place on a plane and literally every character had that special something, that strangeness only Swery characters seem to pull off. When speaking to people, three dialog options are presented which can be activated by hovering your hand over one of them or talking out loud to the Kinect microphone. Our detective got in a fistfight with one of the more eccentric passengers and gameplay took the form of quick-time prompts that required the player to swipe with their arm to punch, block, etc. It seemed fine and shouldn't get in the way of the story, which will be the main draw from the sound of it.

D4 announced for Xbox One, Swery65 episodic mystery!

Swery65 has revealed a brand new game for Xbox One, the simply titled D4. Cel-shaded and episodic, it's an interesting looking murder mystery game. Knowing Swery, it'll be balls-mental.  No real details were revealed after that. Trailer had an adventure game quality to it, with a combat system. I'm into it!
