Ubisoft have released another new video for their upcoming strategy "god game" From Dust (previously known under the working title Project Dust and not to be confused with CCP Games' Eve Online spin-off Dust 514). Today's clip is a developer diary style trailer discussing the art direction, a very important factor of this game which is largely about manipulation of natural environments.
From 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.
