From Dust is quite the fun game. You play as this divine god, or what the natives call The Breath, an disembodied force that has the power to absorb the major elements of this world: water, dirt and lava. You distribute them to aid the natives in reaching magical totems to build villages and populate the lands. But it’s not all happy dappy super terrific days ahead for these poor natives. They have to deal with tsunami’s, drought, wildfires, floods, and raging lava.
Microsoft has released the details to this year’s Summer of Arcade, and it looks to be a scorcher with some amazing games. Focusing on some of the smaller, indie developers out there.
