D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die

hrmph, this game… what should I say about this game… well, it's one of the very rare cases of 'great game, can't recommend'. the reason for that is it's INCOMPLETE – you only get the first half of the story, which ends on a (deliberately) comical over-the-top cliffhanger. now, you might be thinking: that doesn't sound too bad, plenty of great games do that. NO. this game was planned to have two 'seasons', the first for setting things up and building up the mystery (and hyping you up), and the second for actual story resolution and payoff. the sales were poor, so the second season was canceled, and then the director left the development studio because of a terminal illness. he later blocked everyone who talked to him about D4 on Twitter, including yours truly. we will NEVER get the ending to this magnificent mind-fuck of a game. it doesn't even live up to its own name anymore, since, you know, the 'dream' has 'died', get it? just… move along, spare yourself the pain.

Interesting story, premise and characters, yet the game itself is depressing since it's never going to be finished. Game sold badly, and since the ending is a cliffhanger, it means that effectively it's just an appetizer without the meal.

Play with caution.
But! Deadly Premonition is finished and is a game by the same writer. It's also deserves a playthrough or two.

Deadly Premonition shares some of the quirky humor of this game, but aside from that these games are nothing alike. Deadly Premonition is also very janky and rather unpleasant to control, at least with keyboard and mouse, and it has a lot of very… questionable… design decisions. I haven't finished it, so I assume the story is the main draw, and the atmosphere was kinda cool in the parts that I've played, but the actual gameplay that you have to go through to get from one story bit to the next is more tedious than fun.

Deadly Premonition is a great game to watch. Find someone doing a 100% play through on Youtube, and watch that instead of playing it. The story, quirky characters, and setting definitely make it worth checking out, but the whole GAME part of it is really bad, like REALLY bad.
