Delight! D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is destined to deploy on PC in just over a week.
D4 starts David, an amnesiac detective searching for the dick who did in his wife. Delightfully, David can “dive” into the past by touching items, which’ll definitely… okay, I give up on trying to use words beginning with “d”.
D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die was originally a Kinect-heavy game on the Xbox One, but the PC version has been rebuilt to properly use the mouse and keyboard. It’ll also run at 60FPS and offer a few minor PC-specific options, but for the most part, it looks like it’ll be firmly in “port” territory rather than “super-shiny PC version”.
Still, this is a game from the mind of the man who delivered Deadly Premonition, which immediately piques my interest. Yes, the PC version of that was disappointingly dire, but worth struggling through for one of the most delightfully demented adventures the world has ever seen.
D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is due on 5 June.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
