This game is a real treat. The controls are tight, the voice acting is good, difficulty curve is well balanced, and everything fits together so very well. I am looking forward to more games in this vein from Humble Hearts.

On a technical note, this game benefited greatly from the ultra low motion blur mode on my old ROG Swift monitor. If you have a monitor with that feature, this game's art style is practically designed to showcase it.

No doubt one of the best games i've played for many years!
Great story, stunning graphics and beautifull sounds.
If there is anything wrong with this game, it must be that it's a bit short (10-25 hours playtime).
Looking forward to the sequel!

Mi aspettavo un buon gioco, ho scoperto un gioiello. Un figlioccio del Symphony of The Night ma con la sua forte personalità cartunesca. Tutto di prima fascia, dai doppiaggi, alle musiche. Spero vivamente in un secondo capitolo.

This game is gorgeous and the dialogue can be funny. Some of the voices are annoying though. I like that some of the tasks are more challenging than others. I am almost done with my first play through and plan to go again at a higher difficulty setting.

Don't think of this as a game about furries. Think of it as what would happen if Don Bluth (look him up: you've seen his movies) got into making videogames in 2008.

Astonishing game. There's brilliant music and art, amazing story and sweet characters (everyone has their own personality and a story; even the minor characters like Matti boi), the voice acting- it's superb and lots of bloopers which I loved. Lotsa action, collectibles, arena challenges, weather change, atmospheric atmosphere, crafting, leveling, dem-feels and deez nuts. Would definitely play it for the third time on a higher difficulty.

Little kidsy and a bit to easy, but a very well put together game. It's weakness is in the loot, they built room for much more depth in their items and character that they don't use. However everything that is there is fully fleshed out with a very attractive come together in their art in motion.

All things considered, Dust is a fantastic metroidvania-esque game. I heard that one guy did almost all of the work on the game by himself. I think the only thing was the voice acting and some of the sound effects.

Some of the best features:

Great mechanics
Tight controls
Superb voice acting for a game of this scope
Combat feels great all the way through the game. Simple at it's core, but plenty to play around with
A great length for the scope and price of this game. I think my first playthrough on Normal took around 10 hours if I remember correctly
Sound and visual feedback during combat is one of the best I've ever seen, at least for a game of this scope.

Some things that might put people off:

Animal characters. I like the decision, but it may not be everyone's cup of tea
Combat may seem repetetive if you do the same one or two combos over and over
"easy" in the sense that there's no real difficult puzzles and enemies. Some can be challenging the first few times though. It's a game that you're meant to run through though, so the enemy mechanics shouldn't need to be very deep. Still, may not be for everyone.
Story is okay. Nothing groundbreaking though. Voice acting makes up for it in my mind however.
Dialogue-heavy at parts, but all the dialogue is skippable, so it's fine if you just wanna play and not pay attention.

Overall:

Good:
+Gameplay/combat
+Length
+Voice Acting

Ok:
Story
Level Design

Meh:
-Animal characters (if it's not your thing, didn't bother me)
-Lengthy (skipable) dialogue

8.5/10. Pretty great pick-up, especially for the scope of the game. Anyone who likes platformers or metroidvania type gameplay will be pleased. Hardcore mode offers a decent enough challenge. I'm pretty good at taking out enemies but I still die plenty and have to make careful decisions at times.

Breathtaking.

Music, art, story, atmosphere... 10/10.

Combat is pretty satisfying, though I wouldn't suggest playing on the higher difficulties.

For me, this is a one-and-done game. I don't see a ton of replayability. That said, this was one of my best gaming experiences ever.

Dust is a simple 2D action platformer with an undeniably gorgeous aesthetic, great audio and smooth responsive gameplay.

The story is nice for what it is, using the easy amnesiac hero trope to help introduce the player to the world, which is made more enjoyable by your companion being adorable, the other companion acting as a guide with both characters offering dialogue and advice during in-between sections of story to keep you amused going forward. The NPC's offering side-quests are a mixed bag on what you're going to get, with some offering interesting dialogue and others being dull fetch quests.

Level design is well thought out with plenty of variety, although you do feel discouraged to explore areas on your first run through the game as many areas are locked behind talent abilities that you unlock later in the game, forcing you to revisit areas once you're overleveled trivialising the exploration in the first place.

Interacting combat with your companions is interesting as it emphasises your ability to chain together a combo by giving you an auto target ranged attack so that as you're being a swirling blade master of death between enemies, you can keep that combo-chain going to gain bonus experience and if you do happen to come across a larger enemy, you can parry incoming enemy blows with a well timed attack making you near immortal, even on the highest difficulty.

Overall I had plenty of fun during my play through, which is of a good length. Making it well worth picking up in a sale if you're interested in a simple 2D action platformer.

Metroidvania with a *beatiful* setting, furry characters, fast combat, fun and a decent challenge but certainly not 'Nintendo hard'

The backgrounds for this game are absolutely gorgeous. They have a handpainted look along the lines of Muramasa and Odin Sphere. Characters look good, but not quite as good as the backgrounds. The cast is very much furry, but not in a fetishy way. For me this was neutral, but if you're a furry I'd recommend this even more, and if you just can't stand furries you should probably avoid it.

Combat is very fluid. Sometimes almost too much so, aerial moves leave you soaring across the screen and can home in on nearby enemies. This can be great for boosting to secrets and shortcuts, but occassionaly can fling you away from the fight or even into an area you didn't mean to go. The combat isn't exactly hard, but do require different tactics for different enemies. Some are almost invlunerable till you parry them, others explode if you get near, etc. For most of the game it seemed like enemies couldn't do one-hit kills, the first blow that would take you to 0 HP took you to 1 HP instead. This seemed to stop being true about 2/3rds through (on Tough). Since you don't start with regen this is nice for letting you conserve healing items and if you play carefully reduces the need to level HP.

Gear is mostly a linear progression of improvement other than rings, which have some specialized bonuses (item find, extra XP, stat multipliers) you'll be choosing between. Levelling is straightforward too. You can choose between improved health, attack, defense or special attack, but they can't be more than 4 points apart from each other so no extreme specialization.

Don't let the "deviantart furry" art style fool you, this is one of the best metroidvanias out there, a lot of emphasis on the "vania" part as there's a lot of influence from the old Castlevania games as well. Combat heavy but not light on exploration. Good characters and voice acting. Great environments. Lots of good action (though maybe a bit simple). I really like the store system where you catalogue crafting items by selling one to a store, and after that stores start gradually stocking up on them, so you don't have to go grind for them yourself when you need them.

A fun, immersive game, not much of a challenge even on the highest difficulty setting. The voice acting can be subpar at times but good at others; overall it's a nice game to mindlessly kill things for a while. Some humour here and there as well.

Dust: An Elysian Tail è uno dei migliori Action/Indie che abbia mai giocato.

~ Gameplay
Il gioco presenta un ottimo gameplay ma con qualche pecca.
Apprezzabili sono le componenti GDR del gioco:
la presenza di quest secondarie e di sfide speciali, la possibilità di aumentare di livello e la possibilità di compravendere item per dedicarsi al crafting. Questi sono tutti elementi che permettono di aumentare le ore di gioco estendendo di molto la lista di cose da fare.
Il sistema di combattimento non è il massimo è può risultare un po' ripetitivo e in certi momenti addirittura caotico, lo stesso vale per le Boss Fight che risultano abbastanza semplici.

~ Comparto tecnico
Il gioco presenta una magnifica grafica cartoonesca, con svariati scenari ed ambientazioni ricche di particolari. Superbo è il Level design e la presenza di svariati segreti che possono essere scoperti solo attraverso un sano backtracking. Ottime sono anche le animazioni che risultano fluide grazie alla presenza dei 60 FPS.
Ad accompagnarvi vi sarà anche un ottimo comparto sonoro e doppiaggi di tutto rispetto.

Io ho finito il gioco in modalità normale in una ventina di ore giocando con mouse e tastiera, in futuro lo giocherò sicuramente in modalità Hardcore col controller della 360.

Dust è un adventure in 2d molto carino, con alcuni elementi "metroidvania" (si sbloccano abilità che ti permettono di raggiungere posti prima non potevi) e una parte action molto lineare.
La parte action è abbastanza divertente. Il gioco non è difficile o impegnativo ma non può nemmeno essere giocato a occhi chiusi. Ci sono alcuni elementi rpg perché diventi sempre più forte, ma non c'è grinding e questo è positivo. La storia tiene compagnia ma non è niente di nuovo... avevo capito tutto già dopo qualche minuto...

La parte migliore è la grafica, molto colorata e carina. Fidget è una sorta di gatto volante ed è... un po' sexy?

Comunque tutti i personaggi sono simpatici e c'è anche un po' di humor che non guasta mai. Nel complesso un gioco carino, ma niente di eccezionale.

Voto: 7/10

Consigliato agli amanti delle avventure 2d

+ Grafica molto buona e colorata
+ Musica e recitazione ok
+ Abbastanza divertente
+ Un paio di battute
+ Niente grinding

- La storia è prevedibile
- Niente di nuovo
- I comandi avrebbero potuto essere un po' migliori

Dust: An Elysian Tail fa parte di quella singolare categoria di videogame dove la scintilla della curiosità scatta immediatamente dopo aver assistito ad un trailer del titolo in questione.
Le apparenze sono quelle di un action-platform, con un pizzico di metroidvania style, realizzato come se fosse un cartone animato nel quale, il misterioso eroe di turno, deve salvare i bisognosi da un cattivo, sempre di turno. In gran parte, DAET è esattamente questo.
Ma c'è molto altro che può essere gustato soltanto progredendo nel gioco, apprezzando il semplice, immediato ed appagante (e un po' caciarone) sistema di combattimento; salendo di livello ed equipaggiando ogni volta possibile degli oggetti nuovi; incontrando alcuni dei personaggi fantastici che popolano il mondo di Dust. Ciò che, personalmente, mi ha di più impressionato, è stata la trama, non per chissà quale complessità od intreccio, bensì per l'atmosfera e le tematiche poco bambinesche raccontate senza filtri e con una maturità alle volte spiazzante, che spiazza per il profondo distacco con ciò che a schermo vediamo, pieno di colori e personaggi che, invece, sembrano usciti da una fiaba per bambini.
Un titolo molto lontano dalla perfezione, ma che vale la pena essere giocato.

Cheers...ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

The game itself:

I have played it to a completion of about 83% in 15.5 hours, so it has a decent lenght, I absolutely adore this game and i realy wish for a sequel


but anyway, i am getting distracted, here are the pros of the game:

+ a very epic and wonderfull story
+ Characters who all have their unique charm
+ gorgeous scenery and music
+ a very fluid combat style
+ no material "grinding" once you sold a piece of material, the shopkeepers will restock it themselfes overtime
+ a very nicely done crafting system


but as with every game, there are contras altho i cant find many:

- some secret areas are impossible to find without a guide or something (and thats something you WILL need to do for some certain quests)
- some may think that the game is to cartoony in terms of style, but thats something i personally love
- platforming can be a bit unbalanced at times
- you need insane ammounts of healing items on the higher levels

One of the best arcade style games I've played. Complete with an amazing blend of skill and button mashing. Dust: An Elysian Tail has interesting characters, involving story, and rewarding combos.

If you are willing to look past the near impossible battles that can take hours to get right, then you should definiantly pick up Dust: An Elyssian Tail

This is an extremely fun Platformer/Hack n' Slash that includes tons of fun secrets and interesting upgrades that will keep you playing until the end, and if you're a completionist, to the end of the end.

I highly recommend it as one of the first memorable purchases I've had on Steam.

A short, beautiful game that tells an unexpectedly satisfying, meaningful story. As a platforming beat-em-up, it's not particularly difficult or complex, but the strong vocal performances propel the game forward in an immersive, compelling way. Upgrades and new abilities are well-paced throughout, allowing you to choose whether you'd like to keep pushing forward, or backtrack for hidden treasures. I will separately note that the musical score is also extremely strong, with Hyperduck providing BGM that is memorable and very much a pleasure to listen to.

With so many games featuring a laundry-list of tacked-on features or grindy content filler, it is refreshing to play an exploration game that gets to the point by focusing on its core competencies, and does them well. This game was recommended to me, and I now recommend it to you.
