The most arresting E3 trailer for me so far is the new’un for From Dust, the Populous-esque game from Another World/Out Of This World creator Eric Chahi. It seems to take the god game ball dropped by Lionhead/Bullfrog and run with it to about a hundred strange and wonderful places. I have no idea how any of these remarkable world-reshaping powers work in practice, but I almost don’t care. I’m simply happy enough to watch it, goggle-eyed and dreaming fondly of the things only video games can do.
Out this summer for download on PC, as well as various toyboxes. My plan is to hook this up to my ancient projector, beam it onto the ceiling and just watch it for about five hours straight.
Here are some extra screens, just because it’s wonderful.
