More news from PAX East, this time via the electronic eyes of Polgyon. Dean Dodrill and Alex Kain told the world that their side-scrolling ARPG, Dust: An Elysian Tail, will be coming to Steam in April. There’s a trailer below, which is handy for people like me who haven’t played the XBLA original, because Dust means two things in my gaming world: a shooty EVE thing or a platforming sweep ’em up. This Dust has lots of hacking and possibly some slashing, and anthropomorphic characters.
I just found out that Dust’s designer, Dean Dodrill, worked as an artist on Jazz Jackrabbit 2 and that immediately made me think that there will probably be a Jazz Jackrabbit Kickstarter soon, or maybe a gritty reboot.
