Game updated

Hi all!

It's been a while. We have updated the game with some performance fix.

As some of you might have known, we are developing Dusty Raging Fist currently. We have moved away totally from Torque 2D, which was used to develop Dusty Revenge. Dusty Raging Fist is being developed in Unity3D, and this resulted in the whole game being re-built. The 1 thing we brought over was the animation tool. We have been optimizing it for the past year as we develop DRF. Whenever it's being optimized for Unity3D, we tried to re-implement in Torque2D, but with mixed results, thus we aren't able to improve on Dusty Revenge. Our latest attempt seems to be stable and have yielded positive results.

We have tested it internally and it is running better. But being a small indie team, we aren't able test it as extensively as we want. Do let us know of the problems you run into in the forums.

Thanks!

“The art style and old western feel of the story had me enjoying myself immensely. And the combat was nice and challenging, even on normal mode. All in all, a wonderful way to take out the stresses of a normal working day by exploding, shooting and beating the bejeebles out of anything that had the audacity to appear on-screen.”
8/10 – Calm Down Tom

“Dusty Revenge is a fast paced 2D action platformer that stays true to its fighting genre and strengthens the shoot and beat ‘em up style of gameplay.”
9.5/10 – Capsule Computers

“I had fun with Dusty Revenge and think fans of side scrolling beat ‘em ups or modern action games like Devil May Cry will as well.”

What others say about Dusty Revenge:
Destructoid
“All in all, it feels like a condensed 2D Devil May Cry 3, which is a great thing, and shows that PDDesignStudio really has a knack for designing technical action.”

“All along the way, the art is stunning, breaking the boundaries of an indie studio and venturing into major release territory.”


Jay is Games
“The real juicy parts of the game take a little time to kick in (why isn’t the bear with the massive gun there from the beginning?!), but once they do you’ll realize this is much more than a simple sidescrolling punchfest.”

Mash Those Buttons
“It’s got a huge move set, simple attacks to learn, beautiful stages, great enemy and level design, and a fun, unique soundtrack. It does a lot of work to keep the game interesting and varied for its players, something very few brawlers manage to pull off effectively.”

The single-plane side-scrolling beat-'em-up is alive and well. There aren't exactly a plethora of them, but the ones that are available are quite good, with Dragon's Crown, Dust: An Elysian Tale and Shank being some of the best in the field. It's not a crowded genre, so there's always room for an upstart to surprise people, and that's what PD Design Studio did with Dusty Revenge, its first major title for the PC.

Dusty Revenge is set in a mix between the Old West and Steampunk/Electrical Age populated by anthropomorphic animals. You play the role of Dusty, a bunny that wants to leave behind his tumultuous past and settle down on the farm with his love, Daisy. Things don't go as planned. One night, Dusty returns to find his farmhouse burning and the love of his life dead. Three shadowy figures leave him with a scar as they flee the crime scene. After regaining consciousness, Dusty sets out for revenge.

The story is simple in its setup and maintains that simplicity throughout, even if it sometimes gets a little heavy-handed. There are some expected story turns, such as allies teaming up with the hero because of their own agendas against a mastermind named Kraven. There aren't any twists in the tale, and the characters are one-dimensional. Story was never a big thing in this genre, and the game doesn't try to buck that trend. The story can get surprisingly dark, though. Despite the use of anthropomorphic animals in the cast, the plot can get quite gruesome, with blood splatter and characters' heads getting ripped off. It isn't extremely graphic, but the game isn't meant for kids, despite the appearance of the cast.

Dusty has three types of attacks that use different weapons. His light attacks use his fists and feet. Strong attacks utilize his scythe, which has slower execution but increased attack power and range. Distance attacks let him cause some damage with dual pistols or a shotgun. Both the light and strong attacks transition well into combos, which expand rather nicely when you level up. If you need extra help, you can call on one of your two compatriots. The big bear Rondel launches rockets to hit large mobs of enemies and break down touch barriers. The hound McCoy uses a sniper rifle to hit switches, free boxes from their cables and shoot down enemies.

The combat makes the game enjoyable. The flashy combos add some spark to the combat, and the somewhat uncomplicated system makes it easy for players to execute great-looking combos without learning difficult button sequences. Combos are air- and ground-based, giving the game a Devil May Cry flavor without resorting to 3-D. The game also does a good job of balancing platforming and fighting, and it even throws in some light puzzle aspects for good measure. Coupled with a good checkpoint system, adequate difficulty and a decent amount of gameplay, and you have the recipe for a game that is fun and worthwhile for genre fans.

Unfortunately, the good, varied combat and interesting boss fights are dragged down by other elements. The combat shows some flaws when you use any of the assists. The automatic blocking doesn't always activate, resulting in some free hits for enemies. Foes also don't get hurt by their own ordnance, so you'll get shot out of your attacks. Some hitboxes are improperly aligned with the sprites to the point where attacks pass through an enemy without damaging him or her. The camera also has a tendency to not cooperate, since it's a bit dynamic instead of sticking you in the middle. This becomes problematic when platforming is introduced in the latter half of the game and the camera stays put instead of moving with you; you'll be forced to make blind leaps in order to progress.

Perhaps the worst part of Dusty Revenge is the execution of the controls. While the light and heavy attacks are fine, shooting your guns isn't as smooth because both firearms are handled with the same button. Tapping the button makes you use your pistols while holding it down makes you use your shotgun. Far too often in the heat of combat, you'll shoot your pistols when you wanted to fire a shotgun blast, and vice versa. Opening chests is also annoying because a button needs to be held down for the action, and the accompanying animation makes the whole thing feel slow. You can also accidentally cancel the action by not holding down the button until the animation is complete.

Graphically, Dusty Revenge is quite beautiful. The character sprites, while not exceptionally large, are very detailed. The scars on enemies, grimaces when someone gets hit, and the gritting of teeth when shooting a shotgun are all visible and look great. The animations are also quite smooth, with rarely a hitch during transitions. The backgrounds are also nicely detailed, and the use of a watercolor-style of cel-shading adds to the visual flair. There's a lack of any real particle effects, though. Smoke is rarely used, and even then, it looks simple when compared to the other visuals. Laser barriers simply fade instead of pulsate, making you think it's part of the background instead of something lethal, and downed barriers and platforms simply fall or fade away without any ceremony. When compared to the rest of the game, the lack of spectacular effects makes the title feel a little blander.

Unlike the graphics, the sound doesn't fare quite as well. There are only two voices in the game, both of which only play during cut scenes. While Dusty's father sounds fine in his brief segment, Dusty lacks the expected emotion, considering the recent events in his life. He doesn't sound forced, but his inflections never change. It also doesn't help that he sounds like a gruff version of Jean-Claude Van Damme. The sound effects also vary wildly in their quality. While anything coming from Dante and friends sounds fine, enemy effects fall under three categories: they'll play fine, they'll play but lack any power behind the effect, or they'll simply go silent on certain actions. You get the feeling that the money ran out when they were working on the audio because explosions don't have the same punch as a shotgun blast, and sword slashes and machine gun fire are completely silent. On the bright side, even though the music doesn't match what's expected from a Western theme, it's rather good and is a nice accompaniment to the action.

Dusty Revenge has lots of potential and looks very eye-catching. The combat system is satisfying enough despite some cheap enemy tactics, and the boss fights are quite good. However, the camera/HUD issues and the limited use of sound is disappointing, and collision issues and bugs pop up occasionally. The varying quality on the controls can infuriate, especially during the platforming segments in the latter half of the game. For the price, the experience is still worth it but only if you've already played the better titles in the genre.

I played it locally with a friend. It was overall a funny game for a few sessions. Bugs and imprecise collision detection during jumps on plattforms occuring all over the game. Sometimes the screen get stuck and we had to start over or one player died and the other also suddenly died, this is something that you dont expect from a coop Edition. Except the first boss the further encouters were plain and only button smashing, only the last boss had interesting twist.
After all it was a consistent game with furry characters and nothing seemed out of place. The Artwork was fantastic, very good and fitted nicely in the scenery! The idea with the support characters added a nice extra mechanic to the gameplay.
I would recommend the game to everyone with a friend for local coop but get it in a bundle or with discount because it has nearly not replay value.

PS: Anaconda boss was way to strong compared to the other ones.

an admirable attempt to make a devil may cry sidescroller, which is so subtly ripped off that the rabbit's dad is named dante. you can also play as a fox lady, i guess? they're the same thing, and co-op is local only which sucks. but it's fun. do some sick combos, bullet juggle an armadillo, blow some rhinos up with a mortar. it's good.

if the animal designs bother you there is, amazingly, an option to replace everyone in the levels with humans, though you're still stuck with the animals in the video scenes.

This Game is awesome.

You play as a Rabbit seeking revenge. I'll just list the points I like and dont:

+Combo System
+Story is good
+Support system is good and helpful
+requires Skill and not spamming the attack button

-Bugs, still a lot of them
-No damage recovery (As in knockback recovery and whatnot)
-slight input lag
-Crashes occassionally

As for the Bugs of Day one:
=combo Page is faulty
=Crashes for no reason
=Load times' still a ♥♥♥♥♥


Overall Good game
