Gesture based QTEs for Kinect. And a dollop of the bizarre we reckon.
One of the few exclusives we saw that actually managed to catch our attention (we kid, we kid) was D4. The game is touted as an “episodic murder mystery” and is developed by Swery65. This is the developer of Deadly Premonition, one of the few timed exclusives for the Xbox 360. A trailer was also released for the same, which you can view above.
Deadly Premonition was regarded, when it was still exclusive to Microsoft’s console, as one of those “so bad it’s good” games who’s immense cheese and shockingly effective dynamics actually resulted in a rip-roaring good time.
D4 appears to do something a bit different, as we follow a detective who must solve his wife’s murder and prevent it from happening by diving back in time.
Not much is showcased except the ability to use Kinect to perform different Quick Time Events using gestures. Hopefully the final result is a lot less complicated than it sounds. See how it goes down above and let us know in the comments if it floats your boat.
Update: Screenshots added.
