Project Dust will grant players the power to dynamically alter a simulated world to "help their people resist, expand and migrate so they can accomplish their quest to find a safe place," says Chahi.
"Players will be able to manipulate ground, water, vegetation, lava as if playing sandcastles on the beach," he explains. "Breaching a lake open, digging craters, flooding valleys... And all this is simulation, not just graphics visualization."
Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, Project Dust is currently scheduled for a downloadable release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Spring 2011.
The remastered version of Chahi's Another World is available on GOG for $9.99.
Fuck me. Spiritual Populous successor by Eric Chahi? I'm there.
I entered the video announcement of this game in the middle of the conference so had no idea of any lead, and my first thought was Populous based on visuals alone. To know its a spiritual successor and by Chahi too... well, it's definitely bought (and it's a XBLA/PSN title to boot!)
Hell yes... I loved me some Populous.
