D4 is a mystery adventure game developed by Access Games’ SWERY, who also developed Deadly Premonition (Japanese title: “Red Seeds Profile”). Season 1, which contains the prologue, episode 1, and episode 2, was released on Xbox One in September, 2014 and reached 1.3 million downloads. The game is now going to be released for PCs, with the game being optimized for play using a mouse.

Story

This is the story of a man with a very strange fate. His name is David Young – formerly with the Boston PD Narcotics Unit, now a private detective. He possesses the supernatural ability to “dive” into the world of the past by touching left-behind items called “mementos.”

Two years ago, Young’s wife was killed by an unknown assailant. In her last breath, she told him to “Look for D.” From that moment on, the search for ‘D’ became Young’s whole life – nothing more, nothing less.

Game overview

The game is largely divided into adventure or action sequences. The adventure portions of the game involve investigating suspicious areas of the area you’re in and finding clues to the mystery. The action sequences are all about taking action as the protagonist using your mouse, dodging objects or fighting other characters. It has a serious backstory that’s contrasted against a cast of quirky characters. D4 is certainly a unique and bewildering experience.

We will be announcing more on the game at the Tokyo Indie Fest (http://tokyoindiefest.com/), which will be held at the Akihabara UDX on May 8th ~ 10th. We hope to see you there.
