UPDATE: Ubisoft confirm that there will be a digitally distributed PC version of this game.
Eric "Another World" Chahi is making a game that is currently code-named Project Dust. It's a Populous-like sandbox featuring a tribe of alien type folk, which is looking rather beautiful (see trailer below), but which we didn't think was heading to the beige box. However, in an insightful Chahi interview for Edge online it is claimed that the game will appear on Steam. Fortunately for us, such details do not escape the bionic brain of LewieP.
I'll poke Ubi to double check this is true (it is, see above). If true, then good, because it looks like just the kind of game that might please me. You can never really have enough simulated volcanoes or tiny people dependent on your whims.
