Kenji Eno’s D Now Available on GOG for PC, Mac, and Linux

d 6-02-16-1

Night Dive Studios have ported Kenji Eno’s atmospheric classic psychological horror game, D, to GOG.

The game was first released for the 3DO back in 1995, only to later be ported to the Sega Saturn, PlayStation, and MS-DOS. It’s the first game within Eno’s D series, and makes use of CGI full-motion video.

Here’s a refresher on the game, via GOG:


1997, Los Angeles. A mass murder has taken place in a hospital. The criminal is the director of the hospital, Richter Harris. He is one of America’s best-known doctors, a quiet and studious man. Suddenly transformed into a mass murderer, Richter has seized a large number of hostages and barricaded himself in the hospital where the police cannot reach him. His daughter Laura hears the news and immediately drives to Los Angeles to find out what it is that made his father a murderer. Reaching the scene of the tragedy she prepares to enter the hospital…

A macabre journey into the unknown, D leads players through a compelling horror story filled with seemingly indecipherable clues and grim surprises. As Laura, players enter into a terrifying world, where through a series of adventures and complex problem solving, they must discover the truth behind Dr. Richter Harris’ mysterious murderous rampage before time runs out.

  • A heavily atmospheric horror game created by Kenji Eno
  • Multiple endings depending on your actions
  • Play against the clock – you have just two hours to solve the mystery

    This is awesome. Hopefully we get the sequel too eventually.

    Unlikely, D2 was Dreamcast exclusive and with Eno dead I don’t think we’ll get anything new.

    What I hope for is Enemy Zero (which did have a Windows PC port).

    What does this rerelease change?
    Any difference between the 4-5 ports?

    It’s never too late for an unexpected Japanese PC port.

    Why does it matter on which old console it was an exlcusive?

    The only thing exclusive to the dream cast was an early grave till it was ported to the Ouya

    Because if something was a console exclusive, porting it to another system architecture might be too expensive — especially after such a long time. I don’t think DC emulation is truly reliable either, at least currently, so an emulator wrapper might not be viable either.

    As far as I know, this is simply an old DOS version running via dosbox.

    Just because some hipsters made homebrews doesn’t make it not dead.

    People still make homebrew stuff for the genesis all the time.

    Obligatory “we found D” joke

    Never thought this would get a re-release. D isn’t exactly a great game, it’s mostly known for it’s development than the game itself e.g Kenji Eno’s clever tactics to keeping the game’s gory and adult themes intact.

    I really hope Enemy Zero gets a re-release, by far Eno’s best game… even if it’s a rip off of Alien… and is frustrating to play.

    Many DC games have been ported to PC so l don’t see how D2 could be an exception. It’s a question on who has the rights to do it considering D and Enemy Zero already had PC ports in the past.

    I actually thought Enemy Zero was his worst work by virtue of those problems, but eh who am I to deprive other’s satisfaction?

    The reason l consider EZ to be his best work is because it’s the most conceptually interesting, especially in it’s mechanics. A Survival Horror game that relays on sound to survive is a very ambitious concept that was sadly badly implemented because of the lack of stereo support. The only game that is close to replicating it’s concepts is Suda51’s Killer7.
