XBL Store Today: D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, Flockers, Diablo III: UEE

Surprise! Swery65, the demented genius behind the equally demented Deadly Premonition has unleashed the first two episodes (and a prologue) of D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die on the Xbox Games Store. The Xbox One murder mystery uses a striking cel-shaded art style and features another dose of the developer’s trademark sense of humor. Also available on the Xbox One Store today is Flockers, a Lemmings-like puzzler from Team17 (the creators of Worms).

Xbox 360 owners can finally download the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition beginning today. The $39.99 package includes both the original game and the Reaper of Souls expansion pack.

More details on all three games can be found after the break. (more…)

Microsoft reveals first details of Xbox One exclusive D4 at TGS 2013


The Tokyo Game Show might just be a memory now, but did you know Microsoft used the Japanese games showcase to introduce Swery65’s episodic Xbox One game, D4, to the world? Briefly glimpsed at this year’s E3 Expo, Microsoft revealed that its full title will be D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die and that the game will make extensive use of the Kinect sensor.

Microsoft’s Xbox Wire went straight to Swery65 to learn more about the enigmatic game:

Can you tell us a bit more about the story and core gameplay mechanics?

Swery65: The main character of the story is David Young, a private detective. Two years ago, someone killed his wife. He lost his memories of the incident, but in exchange, he received the ability to travel into the past. He uses this ability to crack cases to lead him closer to the truth about his wife’s death, and if possible, to find a way to save her life.

As I said, you’ll definitely want to hop over to the Xbox Wire if you want to learn how D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die uses the Kinect sensor.
