The once-exclusive Xbox One supernatural murder-mystery, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is heading to the PC.
D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is yet another enigmatic title from the creative minds of “Swery65” Hidetaka Suehiro and Access Games. Only “Season One” is available on Xbox Live, however it’s safe to say that D4 is a supernatural mind-bending detective story: David Young is bent on solving “Little Peggy’s” murder, but a still-lodged bullet in his forehead robbed him of his memories- all but constant visions of his wife, Peggy. Whether or not it’s an actual supernatural ability, or just hallucinations caused from brain trauma, Young has the ability to “dive” into the past with the help of a “Memento”, a piece of evidence with a strong personal connection to a suspect. By changing pieces and events of the past, Young hopes to solve Peggy’s case, along with a string of related incidents, and potentially undo her death.
Yesterday morning, it was revealed that a PC version of D4 was currently in development at Access Games; this was later confirmed via Swery’s Twitter feed. According to Swery65, the decision to port the game to PC was in response to a massive amount of requests and support from fans of the Xbox One version. A playable build of the PC version was available at PAX East, where even more fans requested a finalized release.
While the Xbox One version is published by Microsoft, Access Games has full ownership over Dark Dreams Don’t Die; a new publisher is needed to release the title on PC, though “several” companies at both PAX East and GDC 2015 expressed interest in publishing the PC version.
In a statement to Polygon, director Swery65 confirmed that Access is “working very hard” towards D4: Season Two, but there are no further details at this time, other than fans should “get excited”.
D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die – Season One is currently available through XBLA; a release window has not been announced for the PC version.
