The current D.U.S.T. is at 0.2.X cycle and is in need of major overhaul in practically ALL areas. I've been working and been away (due to health issues) but have found it hard to deliver a full patch. Since then, I've devised a plan that will work; compartmentalizing small sections of the game and releasing it - hence the dev branch. We will be working on the dev branch and updating it often and when it is ready to be implemented into a major build, it will be done.
We are taking off!
If you still haven't heard, D.U.S.T. was released on Steam Early Access last week. Here is the store page.
To our surprise, there are more way more people interested in advanced firearm mechanics. The review scores jump down and up between "Mixed" and Mostly Positive", but we are really pumped to see that many people thinking positively about D.U.S.T. and what it aims to be in the future.
Nevertheless, we are proud to be the developers behind this game and want to extend our gratitude to those who helped us throughout the development. It has been an honor and a memory that will not be forgotten. Thank you!
Now, I just want to introduce two pronounced videos uploaded to Youtube and appreciate their support and interest. The videos provide, in our opinion, are a good status report of what most new comers will experience. Definitely worth checking out and most fun.
We would also like to thank Bluedrake42 and PsiSyndicate for covering our game in the first week. Please click on the images to watch the video.
We are proud to announce Steam Early Access release for D.U.S.T.!
There are few things that we have to keep in mind.
- Read and master field manuals before going into a full game session. We don't want people handling guns when they are clueless
- Be respectful to all players at all times.
- Don't be a jerk.
- Enjoy and have patience...this is Early Access initial release!
Lastly, give our free gaming benchmark standard, Terabench, a try!
