With the announcement coming today via a tweet from it’s creator Dean Dodril, Dust will be arriving on Steam May 24th for $14.99. The tweet can be found here.
According to other tweets by Dodril, the game will have gamepad support, steam achievements, steam cloud integration and will not require Games for Windows Live, despite being initially published by Microsoft during last Summer’s “Summer of Arcade”. The game is currently up on Steam, so give it a look.
This reporter’s take: I have played Dust: An Elysian Tail on Xbox 360, and cannot recommend it anymore for any fans of Old school side scrolling action RPGs. I will likely also post a review of it (based off the Xbox 360 version) within the next week so you can know my full thoughts on it.
