Oprainfall Awards

In Dust: An Elysian Tail, you play as the eponymous Dust, who travels around a gorgeously hand-painted world with his sword’s guardian, Fidget, in search of his true identity. There are plenty of interesting features in this game, such as exploring expansive worlds with non-linear designs, a battle system that is easy to learn, yet hard to master, unique characters, a great soundtrack, and much more. The game even has multiple performance options to run on as many types of PC as it can.

Dust: An Elysian TailĀ met with critical acclaim when it first released on Xbox Live Arcade back in 2012.

So, if you like side-scrolling action games with strong art-design like Muramasa: The Demon Blade or Odin Sphere, this may be a game you’ll enjoy.
