About this game

Content Rating: Everyone10+


Created by famed French videogame designer Eric Chahi, this mysterious game tells of a world in terrible disorder, one that only you can set right again. Commanding the world around you as a child in a sandbox, players will help their people resist, expand and migrate so they can accomplish their quest to find a safe place in a land ravaged by the violent and catastrophic ways of Nature.

The pleasing puzzles present unexpected challenges, and even when they’re over it’s still fun to just toy around with. It leaves me hoping that Chahi and his team continue to build on the foundation laid here, so we can explore deeper and more complex levels in this living sandbox.

It really is a very charming game. The pseudo, non-specific, “greatest hits” of tribal religion mixed with the art style and minimal story really gives the game a unique identity. While there may be some problems with the difficulty, and the payoff of the short story mode is slightly underwhelming, From Dust definitely brings something fairly original to the table that really has its moments.

It's a great, polished, slightly flawed experience that will last you between five hours (if you just blast through the singleplayer) and ten hours (if you take your time in the campaign and go through the challenge maps as well). If you do take your time with it, you're also likely to complete all secondary objectives, and when you've done that there isn't much reason to come back to the game, unless you feel like wrestling a volcano at some point. And let's be honest, how can you not?
