Game Description

Immerse yourself in a gorgeous hand-painted world on a search for your true identity. As the mysterious warrior, Dust, your action-packed journey will take you from peaceful glades to snowy mountaintops and beyond. At your disposal is the mythical Blade of Ahrah, capable of turning its wielder into an unstoppable force of nature, and the blade's diminutive guardian, Fidget. Battle dozens of enemies at once with an easy-to-learn, difficult-to-master combat system, take on a variety of quests from friendly villagers, discover ancient secrets and powerful upgrades hidden throughout the massive, open world, and uncover the story of an ancient civilization on the brink of extinction as you fight to uncover your own past.

I'd love to have this game on my Switch! While I've only given it the one playthrough on Steam, I loved the aesthetics and I'm just a sucker for any solid Metroidvania game, which Dust definitely is. Very interested to see how it stacks up on replay and if the Switch portability affects the feel of it at all.

Thanks for the rundown! I watched the trailer for this and wondered what about it qualified the game to be an ‘RPG.’ The answer seems to be that it’s more of a metroidvania with RPG elements.

Game looks smooth. I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for it.

This was a solid game upon its release. Smooth combat with a nice weight to it. There's also a nice level up progression and a decent crafting system. The music is great as well. I've even added a few tracks into my normal music rotation.

I'm not sure how it holds up against recent giants like Hollow Knight but if you missed it the first time around it might be a nice addition to the ever widening collection of Metroidvania games on the Switch.
