Some fresh news straight out of the Tokyo Game Show is that adventure murder mystery game from Swery, D4 or Dark Dreams Don’t Die, will be releasing exclusively to Xbox One tomorrow (Friday).
D4, what is that? I hear you ask, and you would be forgiven for not knowing. There has been no advertising for this game, and it has been kept behind closed doors basically since it was announced in 2013. But, don’t worry I’ve got your back with a little run down on what we know about the game.
The main character, David Young, is a private investigator whose wife has been murdered. Following the traumatic events surrounding her death, Young, unable to recollect those memories, has gain the ability to travel through time. Young therefore travels through time to try and undo the murder. However, the player cannot time travel arbitrarily, as the powers are activated upon finding certain objects that bring the player to specific points in time, so basically the time travel is story driven, and will happen when it needs to by the sounds of it.
Along with the announcement of the release date there was also a new trailer shown. Check it out below.
Personally I think the game looks pretty good, but also a little nuts, and I think the soundtrack accompanying the trailer really adds to that. Colour me intrigued for sure!
You can play the game using either the Kinect sensor or your regular controller.
I think I would actually quite like to try this out with the Kinect, as so far the console doesn’t really have many Kinect games passed dancing and sports style games. I think it will be good to see how it works with a ‘normal’ game, that essentially could use normal controls.
