‘From Dust’ Tech Demo is Phenomenal

Eric Chahi the man behind critically acclaimed games like Out of This World and  Heart of Darkness, is now back to video games development with ‘From Dust’.

The new trailer shows off  dynamic world simulation technology. “We want to create a universe that reflects the power of nature, the relative insignificance of mankind and the brevity of his lifespan,” the narrator explains in the video.

Developed by Ubisoft Montpeiller, Dust will be released on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the second quarter of 2011.

The game will debut at this year’s GDC in Germany, but for now we have this tech demo for you.

    Ubisoft has sinned far too often in my eyes to give them any more chances.

    its good and all…..but not worth buying if there arent missions, other forms of gameplay and a meaning behind all of it

      There are missions, mate.

      What do missions have do with anything? Screw linear gameplay, I’m sick and tired of these games that say “Go to point A, now go to point B, Yay! You’ve beat the game!” That’s crap.

      I like creative sandbox games and I’m tired of game magazine (GameSpot, IGN, etc…) reviewers and so-called “hardcore” gamer fanboys telling me that for a game to be a “real” game it needs stupid missions.

      Did The Sims have missions? No. Did SimCity have missions? No. Did Spore have missions? No. Yet, I loved those games more than any stupid linear game with missions. If you don’t like it then fine, buy one the million FPS games or one of their zillion sequels, but don’t ruin it for the rest of us.

    Too bad it’s Ubisoft. Bound to have that draconian DRM so I won’t be buying it. Looks cool though.
