D4 Releases Tomorrow

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.

    • It’s been pretty quiet really, and some people were thinking it might be in some development whole. So it’s quite random. But I think it looks decent.

          • Always the same thing this time of year. Too any games, not enough cash.
            Sunset is looking pretty good. It looks great fun. I’m hoping to play it next weekend at a games convention in London.

          • Let me know if you do. I’m really curious about it.

            This time of the year always has really great games so I’m not surprised that I’m going to be broke in October lol.

          • I will no doubt be talking about it in our Geekly Review.

            It’s both good and bad. Good because we get loads of awesome games, but bad because we end up broke…

          • Actually it’s Chucky Cheese for the entire family and that’s going to make my wallet cry…

            My two year old likes Need for Speed, and my five year old likes Forza. They both play Skyrim too on my PC when I’m not home.

            I wonder what my son will get into. I hope he’s a gamer, but if he isn’t I’m hoping I could at least get him to watch football with me and my daughters.

          • I don’t really know what Chucky Cheese is, I kind of imagine it to be a bit like a McDonalds, but with more kids stuff?

            A family of gamers! You’ve raised them right.

          • It’s actually a place where you can go to eat pizza and watch your kids play one of the many, many games in the building. My kids love it.

            I would rather them play games than go outside these days. The world has really changed and for the worse over here.

          • So like Pizza Planet in Toy Story?

            It’s hard for me to imagine what it’s like being a parent, but I’m sure it’s not easy.

          • Parenting has it’s bad days. Some times, especially my kids, no matter what you do they just won’t listen to anything you say.

            I have three kids and my wife is pregnant with number four. Having kids was the best thing that ever happened to me and I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.

            You have to be patient and you must think of them more than yourself. Is it easy? Of course not, but I’m doing the best I can and so far it’s going good.

            My kids saved my life and I owe them everything. I was nothing but a jail bird before I had them.
