All the way back in 2009 when Microsoft was first showing off their concept of Xbox having indie games, they showed off Dust: An Elysian Tail. That game was never actually released on the service, though it did win best of DreamBuildPLay in 2009. Now it seems the developer, Humble Hearts, will be releasing the game this year on XBLA.
Dust is a beautifully drawn and animated beat ’em up game within a fantasy world. Though the game hasn’t been show much over the last 2 years the developer promises it will release this year. It looks artful and fun and I would love to see more games like this, such as Bastion or Limbo.
