Dust: An Elysian Tail coming to Steam, aiming for April release

Dust: An Elysian Tail is coming to Steam soon, and may hit as early as sometime in April.


At his PAX East panel over the weekend, Dust: An Elysian Tail creator Dean Dodrill revealed that the game is heading to Steam sometime soon, and possibly as early as April. He says the Steam version will support numerous visual and control options, and will run at 1080p. It will still be published by Microsoft Game Studios.

Dodrill also told Kotaku that after the Steam port is done, he'll be working on an entirely new project unrelated to Elysian Tail. He mentioned it will probably be quiet for the next year, but the development cycle won't be as long as Dust. He also said he wants to continue the Dust series, as teased during the panel, but with another project coming first it will be "a while" before he has anything more to say about it. "I do love the characters though, and look forward to continuing their adventure."

Dust was a suprise hit of last year's Summer of Arcade, garnering a positive review from me and reviewers on the whole.

      This game is so good, anyone who likes Metroidvania games, or ones with a great story, should check it out.

      Awesome; I was worried that being a Microsoft Studios title would fence it into XBox Games for Windows or something.

        Didn't they do something like that with their last release, Skulls of the Shogun?

        Windows 8 only on PC, which is Xbox Games or whatever. At least they appear to be done with GFWL finally. It's about goddamn time.

      I'm going to bet that this game is still going to play better with a controller.

        Like any other action platformer?

        You don't say. It's a shame the PC doesn't support gamepads.

          I'm not saying that people should not buy it on PC for that reason, just if you are going to buy it on PC, expect to use a controller. Also, the game is awesome, so buy it on whatever platform you prefer.

      Just beat this game. A bit too furry but it's a really fun game. The ending kind of pissed me off because I rocked the boss and somehow I was too beat up to not roll over and get overwhelmed with lava.
