Sweet Dreams: Swery’s D4 On PC Next Week

By Alice O'Connor on May 27th, 2015.

Whatever Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro is up to, colour me interested. An episodic adventure game about a former cop trying to solve the murder of his wife by diving back in time? Yep, I’m up for D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die [official site]. After Deadly Premonition, which he directed, I want more of whatever’s in his head. Scrape it out and offer it to us. Yes, including the idea he has for “a story about a high school girl detective who uses the imagination (fantasising) energy from masturbating to help her solve murders.” Sure thing, Swery!

For now, I’ll settle for D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, which next week comes from Xbox One to PC.

Deadly Premonition Designer’s D4 Coming To PC

By Adam Smith on April 28th, 2015.

D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is an episodic adventure directed by Hidetaka Suehiro, who you may know as SWERY, creator of Deadly Premonition, gaming’s very own Marmite. I hate Marmite and you can figure out how I feel about Deadly Premonition by reading my review.

Last time I read about D4, SWERY had mentioned poor sales and fans were trying to help with promotion. Exclusive to Xbox Uno, the game released without any fanfare and then withered on the vine. I remember thinking a PC port might help and now, here we are.

Have You Played… Deadly Premonition?

By Alice O'Connor on December 24th, 2014.

Oooooh!

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Are you willing to gamble £1.99 on a game you might very well loathe? If so, head on over to Steam and buy Deadly Premonition in the sale. It is wonky, it is ugly, it is weird, it is slow, its port is awful, and it is charming, it is exciting, it is weird, it is funny, and it is one of my favourite games.

Wot I Think: Deadly Premonition

By Adam Smith on November 6th, 2013.

Deadly Premonition is fascinating, broken, bizarre, enormous, boring, brilliant and absolutely unsuitable to play on my PC (Durante’s fix helps though). I’ve laboured through more crashes than SID-H3, as well as wrestling with awkward mouse and keyboard controls. Eventually I resorted to playing in a window because that seemed to cause fewer collisions with the desktop. I wouldn’t have persevered for a lesser game, even though, at times, this is the least of games. Here’s wot I think.

Late Access: Deadly Premonition’s Troubled PC Release

By Alec Meer on October 30th, 2013.

filenames I regret using
Today in Games We Were Convinced Would Never Come To PC, it’s lovably clunky survival horror cult classic Deadly Premonition. Access Games’ oddball, divisive Twin Peaks semi-homage has a dedicated, even fervent following on console, but it was a complete surprise when it showed up on Greenlight one day. Now it has completed its walk with fire, and is available on Steam right now. Sadly, it seems to be a HORROR-PORT, so rife with issues that the dev’s offered public apologies for it. Modders, fortunately, have been to the rescue already.
