Praise be! Dust: An Elysian Tail's XBLA exclusivity window has come to an end and will be coming to PC, via Steam, on May 24. Yes, that's just one week away! One of the most brilliant 2D side-scrolling action games in years is finally spreading its wings on another platform. Oh, to finally experience Dust's hand-painted art in glorious resolutions only capable on a computer monitor.
For those who missed it the first time Dust: An Elysian Tail is the story of ... err, Dust, a mysterious figure and his powerful sword the Blade of Ahrah. The Blade empowers Dust with insane strength and so we get the intense "easy-to-learn, difficult-to-master" combat system therein. Basically, things start with genocide and every goes to hell from there. Dust: An Elysian Tail will surprise you, I promise.
Check out Dust: An Elysian Tail on PC, via Steam, starting May 24 for $14.99. Expect a small discount during launch week, however. It'd normally be a preorder bonus, but it doesn't appear that Dust will be taking preorders. That mean's you'll have to flag your calendar yourself! Don't let this one pass you by. Oh, here's a quick reminder, Dust: An Elysian Tail was made by one dude -- just one -- over the span of almost four years. Mind boggling.
