Dust An Elysian Tail

Dust: An Elysian Tail was released back in August of last year on Xbox Live Arcade, as the final title in Xbox’s Summer of Arcade series of indie game releases. It seemed it would forever be an exclusive to XBL, as it was published by Microsoft, with it joining the ranks of other such titles like Geometry Wars 1 & 2, a vast array of old classic Shmups including Radiant Silvergun, and Guardian Heroes. That is—until now. At this year’s PAX East, Dust: An Elysian Tail‘s creators, Dean Dodrill (or Noogy) and Alex Kain, happily announced that the side-scrolling, role playing, beat ’em up title starring anthropomorphic animals would be heading to Steam.

They’re hoping for an April release, and talks about a sequel are in the high possibility range, as they have great interest in doing so. When the question rose up, they both said the following:

“I do have a lot of ideas for Dust 2” – Dodrill

“There is no shortage of Dust 2 stuff” – Kain.

Highly acclaimed with critics and gamers, as a fan of the game can safely say, Steam users are in for a treat. Check out the announcement trailer for Dust: An Elysian Tail below.

  • No mention of a PC release anywhere but Steam? It sickens me how people seem to think Steam is a synonym for the PC as a platform now.

    • Digital Distribution ftw

      That’s because Steam IS the PC platform now. If it’s not on Steam, then you have to ask why not.

      You use Origin or something? Ugh.

    • Good god no, that’s worse than Steam. No, I don’t use any of that client BS, I use DRM-free games on my PC. Steam likes to pretend it’s the PC platform, but it’s really not.

  • One man made all this!?

    This game looks amazing and plays amazing. It’s a hell of a lot of fun and the controls of some of the tightest I’ve ever seen in an action game.
