Xbox One's D4 designed for Kinect, says Swery65, but can be played with controller

Xbox One's software reveal event included a surprise announcement from Deadly Premonition creator Swery65. It has been built with Kinect in mind, but he says it can be used with a controller.

D4 - or, ‘Dark Dreams Don’t Die’ – is an episodic game that sees a detective called David trying to halt the death of his wife ‘Little Peggy’ by touching objects to hop into their past, and try to re-arrange events to avert the catastrophe.

The game can be played using Kinect motion and voice command functions, but Swery65 has now confirmed them as optional. You can play with a pad if you wish.

What do you make of the project so far?
