Single-lettered horror adventure ‘D’ was plucked from obscurity and deposited on PC download service Steam Thursday. The somewhat secretive nature of the launch has left many quite baffled as to where the re-release of the 1995 cult classic came from.
Designed by the sadly deceased Kenji Eno and originally released on the Sega Saturn, PlayStation, 3DO and PC, ‘D’ was a somewhat novel concept at the time as the game plays entirely in real-time, over a two hour period and there is no save function. Rendered mostly in full motion video which was extremely popular in the mid ‘90s, the player assumes the role of Laura Harris, a young lady who, upon discovering that her father is a mass-murderer, goes to an asylum to investigate his whereabouts. The game received widespread critical acclaim upon its release, with particular praise being given to the graphics and plot.
This little slice of Japanese nightmare-fodder is currently on sale until 3rd November and can be picked up for a cool £3.59 at the time of writing.
