D is a game that does not respect your time. In fact, D seems custom built to not give a single fuck about your time. D cannot be paused and it cannot be saved. And if it is not completed within two hours, the game isn’t over and you must start over from the beginning. I would say the cutscenes can’t be skipped, but the game is basically just one long cutscene. Yet, in spite of all of this, all of these things that I feel would make many modern game players recoil from the thing as though it were toxic to the touch, the game is good.
