'Dust: An Elysian Tail' to make 2012 Xbox Live Arcade debut
Dean Dodrill (Noogy) has announced on NeoGAF that his anticipated action-RPG Dust, which won Microsoft's Dream.Build.Play competition in 2009, is coming in 2012.
When a user said they were looking forward to the game's release, Dodrill replied:
Man, I have to play that every day.. Oh, wait, I mean it's great :) It's coming out in 2012, promise.
In Dust, the game's eponymous protagonist must "liberate an oppressed village, and rediscover his past" while wielding the ancient and powerful sword, Ahrah. The game is filled with anthropomorphic creatures, lavish, hand-painted, side-scrolling backgrounds and character animations, and music by Alex Brandon and HyperDuck SoundWorks. The price is yet to be announced.
