It's a game that has taken out multiple awards and received raving reviews, even from the Kotaku readers. Unfortunately, the fun was restricted to Xbox 360 users. Now, PlayStation 3 owners will also be able to see what the fuss is all about when From Dust comes to PSN tomorrow.


Announced yesterday for a September 27 release on the PlayStation Network, god-game From Dust has had its delivery date moved up two weeks to September 13. It's still $US14.99. Because some have wondered, no, the game does not support PlayStation Move.


That an entire console worth of gamers haven't experienced Eric Chahi's glorious strategy game From Dust weighs is a shame, but a shame that will be rectified come September 27 when the game hits the PlayStation Network for $US14.99.


Ubisoft's release of From Dust on the PC has been, in every sense of the word, a disaster. Just the fact that, today, it was discovered the game requires an always-on internet connection -- putting the lie to earlier claims that it wouldn't -- is a throat-slash to its credibility. The additional fact it's also a terrible port of a console game is the cherry atop a shit sundae for a raving mad PC gaming community.


I like it when innovative games sell well. The fact that Child of Eden struggled still keeps me awake at night. Thank goodness then, that Ubisoft is reporting that From Dust was a resounding success, easily swatting away Scott Pilgrim vs the World to become its biggest selling digital release ever.


From Dust - it's a game that's getting mixed reviews in the best possible sense of the word. Some people love it and some people hate it. Today's reviewer, Dutch, occupies the middle range of this spectrum...

We've been a little bit excited about From Dust since the beginning, but the 'God' genre hasn't really been popular since Black and White - can Eric Chahi's latest effort revive it? He certainly seems to think so.


I've played as army men, bounty hunters, spies and killers. I've built towering office buildings as a city planner. Raised beasts as a super being. Strategised as a world-conquering general. But I've never been the breath of god.


Every year Microsoft selects a handful of Xbox Live Arcade games it considers the very best the platform has to offer and releases them once a week as part of the Summer of Arcade promotion. With Ubisoft's From Dust and Fuelcell's Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet making the cut this time around, we're in for one hell of a summer.


From Dust continues to intrigue, yet we still haven't 100% grasped precisely how the game will end up playing. although it's undoubtedly a God game in the tradition of Populous and Black and White, the scale and art of the game is dazzling. The new vids, unearthed by Joystiq, seem to show a tiny bit of gameplay, but not enough for our liking!
