As Laura, players enter into the heavily atmospheric world of D, where through a series of adventures and complex problem solving problem solving, they must discover the truth behind Dr. Richter Harris' mysterious murderous rampage. Featuring Silicon Graphics-rendered, full-motion images, D leads players through a compelling horror story filled with seemingly indecipherable clues and grim surprises, offering gamers a frightening and fascinating interactive experience. Enhancing the experience is an originally scored soundtrack by D creator and programmer, Kenji Eno, who also commissioned and conducted the Moscow Symphony Orchestra to play the piece.
"With stunningly cinematic photo-realistic graphics, unique first-and third-person perspectives, and an eerily compelling soundtrack, D truly puts a `new face' on the interactive horror genre and offers gamers a frighteningly suspenseful journey into the world of the macabre," says Sam Goldberg, vice president of Marketing.

A full moon rises over L.A. National Hospital
Inside – the father, a doctor gone mad …
but why? Outside – the daughter …
the innocent, the victim
You are about to enter the darkness forever!
With stunning computer-rendered 3-D graphics, D’s descent into
the dark pit of your soul is a tour-de-force
of terrifying secrets and challenges.
