A side-scrolling, cartoon-like 2D action-platformer that takes place in a world populated by animals. That’s where the similarities to Dust: An Elysian Tail end — here, the world is like the Wild West, the story is about revenge, and there’s guns. Lots of guns.
Dusty Revenge follows Dusty, an anthropomorphised rabbit, on his quest to take revenge on the one who murdered his love. This quest, incidentally, takes him across several hand-drawn locations and has him viciously massacre hundreds of baddies with the help of his two esteemed colleagues, Rondel the heavy arms specialist and McCoy the sniper. Here’s developer PD Studio’s features list:
Intense story: Consumed for revenge after the love of his life is killed, Dusty crosses paths with 2 unlikely allies who are each seeking out the same enemy for a different reason. As the three set out to destroy the responsible band of villains and anyone else that stands in their way, they unravel a scheme much bigger than their personal vendettas.
3 unique characters with their own weapons and mechanics: Play as Dusty, a vicious multi gun wielding madman that boasts intense melee attacks. Players can also call upon two support characters, Rondel the artillery support who tramples enemies with a massive arsenal of weaponry and beastly rocket launchers, and McCoy the sharpshooter who takes down loads of enemies stealthily with his deadly accurate rifle.
9 Gorgeously drawn environments: Venture through cavernous wastelands, western ghost towns and deadly jungle environments in your quest for blood. You never know what to expect from the each of the unique and precarious worlds!
Hordes of menacing villains: A whole slew of enemies are out there ready to kill. From aggressive predatory vermin, vicious stalking felines, venomous mechanical snakes and giant armoured gorillas, all run by the enigmatic leader Craven.
If all that sounds good to you and you even like the trailer up top, know that Dusty Revenge is out now on PC for both Windows and Mac. Currently, it can be grabbed for a tenner at either the developer’s own storefront or on Desura.
