Halloween is just around the corner, and with our annual special week(s) of movie and gaming goodness to start as well, it’s not a bad idea to dig around in GOG’s release archives, as WARP’s interactive horror adventure movie D: The Game is worth a scare or two.
1996 is quite a long time, and it’s been a while since FMV adventure games were popular. D: The Game doesn’t have actors or actresses, but CGI characters, and tells the story of Laura Harris who investigates a hospital after having learned that her father became a mass murderer and barricaded himself inside the facility.
Having originally been released on the 3DO in 1995, it was later ported to the Sega Saturn, PS1, and PC, so one shouldn’t expect the best of graphics. However, it still looks downright creepy, disturbing and also violent, while the idea of having only 2 hours in real time to go through it is quite original for a survival horror game, although it might be a problem for those more accustomed to puzzle solving and exploring environments on their own accord.
The game has long been lost and fetches high prices with the retail versions, so it’s great to experience it again or for the first time on GOG thanks to curator Nightdive Studios.
