From Dust


From Dust features some of the best environmental effects seen in modern gaming. The islands look superb and the water can be downright astonishing. The sound doesn't get the same treatment and can become very repetitive at times.

Simply put - you need to download the From Dust trainer.

From Dust


A god game may leave players feeling less than omnipotent.

There is a respite from feeling powerless in the bite-sized challenge levels, where the action takes on more of a puzzle-solving bent by handicapping your abilities. One asks you to lead your people to survival when you can only absorb water; another...

Living world to sculpt ; Intuitive controls ; Breathtaking visuals and sound design

Pathing sometimes troublesome ; One mistake can wipe out everyone

From Dust Review


The Breath breathes life into the summer of arcade.

Beautiful environments; encourages creative problem solving

Slow build up in the story mode before the game finds its stride
