Project Dust Revealed

Ubisoft reveals plans for Project Dust, the codename for an upcoming game being designed by Eric Chahi (Another World, aka Out of This World), described as a "spiritual heir" to Populous, the Peter Molyneux-designed classic that put the players in the role of a god (or at least a really powerful landscape architect). The game is intended for release during the spring of next year as a downloadable title for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. The news is accompanied by some concept art, the E3 Trailer from the game, and an internal Q&A talking with Eric Chahi about what he's been up to since the release of Heart of Darkness, and what to expect from this game, where he says: "Project Dust is the spiritual heir to Populous. The game is set in an extreme version of Planet Earth where nature unleashes her power in a much more violent way than what we are used to. Tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, volcanic eruptions are what the days are made of for the people of Dust. In this kind of God game, users will play with powers to manipulate the world around them. Ground, water, lava, fire, plants and trees -model the world like a child playing sand castles on the beach. With such powers, players will help their people resist, expand and migrate so they can accomplish their quest to find a safe place." The embedded version of the E3 trailer follows.

Ubisoft could announce the second coming and no one care so long as they have their asinine DRM in place.
While I don't condone their DRM, I like their games. I recently played all the way through AC2 with zero problems. Based on that experience, I'll not delay in getting any other Ubisoft PC game that piques my interest. Dust happens to be one of them. Loved Populous.

This is the only decent thing I've seen from Ubisoft recently and of course it'll be encumbered by their shitty fucking DRM. Damn it

The animations look like shit. If it's like Populous, then that doesn't matter since Populous was awesome. However, it's from Ubi, so no buy.

This is the hidden gem at E3 I was hoping to see.

Downloadable title for Windows??? Hows that going to work?

Steam, Direct2Drive, Impulse and so forth. In other words you won't see the PC version on store shelves.

Very witty Downloadable sounds to me like free though, so i was just wondering whether they meant that they'll leak it on torrent sites themselves this time to save the pirates the trouble. ;p After all, every PC-Game is "downloadable" ;p so yeah...

I guess my lackluster attempt at sarcasm was undetectable this time

Yeah I have no idea how anyone could possibly download a game. Where does the disc come from? And what about the box it comes in? This sounds like witchcraft to me Beadyeyes
