All is Dust is a very short Horror game, It has an interesting premise but really lacks any horror. I was chased by a monster a few times, by chased I mean slowly followed. I sort of felt bad because he has this pouty face and looks really herpderp. What I mean is "but you ain't got no legs lieutenant dan".

Anyway, its short and neat, even if it is made with basic unity stuff.

tl;dr:
12/10 - This was the most hilarious 23 minutes I've had in a long time.

too long part:
Embark with me on an epic story driven journey of me and my pal, which took place at approximately 2 AM after a considerable amount of beers. We weren't sleepy yet but we didn't feel like playing DOTA or whatever, so I remembered seeing All is dust on Steam.

I myself being a ♥♥♥♥♥ have suggested that I probably don't want to be playing the game alone as it might give me some bad sleep. I started the game and the first jumpscare got me right at the menu - no settings whatsoever. I shook it off and pressed New Game using mouse with invisible cursor.

What came next was a short cutscene in a car, where I noticed that touching my mouse gently causes my character to turn 270 degrees. Damn, I wish there were settings. Just as I started to think this might be a problem, our car was high-fived in the face by some a**hole driving in the wrong direction.

Then there was this weird cinematic with some redneck talking into a low quality microphone without subtitles, so we had no fu**ing idea WTF he just said. Then I found myself in some Redneck house with no bathroom or any hygienical establishments whatsoever, then I picked up a lantern, then I went places.

On my travels, we found some weird barbecued thingy without legs which had been apparently repeatedly dipped in tabasco sauce and then nailed to a cross. We traveled some more and found that the tabasco fellow must had jumped off his cross because he was now behind me. My friend didn't see him though, as the guy was partially concealed by a cornfield. So I walked up right to his face and we examined the fella a little bit. What kinda creeped us out was the first time the b*tch turned its head 180 degrees to look right at us. We honestly didn't see that one coming.

Upon walking point blank to the thing, it turned into ashes and vanished. This kept happening afterwards as the thing would always appear behind my back and then disappear once I got close. We then assessed that the thing is probably scared of us, so we decided to get friendly with it and prove to it we were not carrying any more tabasco. We decided to simply call him Boogeyman since he didn't share a name with us. From that point forward, we were genuinly scared when we didn't see Boogeyman because we were worried he'd got lost in the fields somewhere :(

After some walking, ladders and finding that our Boogeyman has brought his bros, we got to the most trollface canadian prank moment in history of gaming. Just right outside the house I mentioned earlier, there was a bench and a hole in front of it. I, being a drunk I was, situated myself right into the hole. See, since that hole was approximately as deep as a bowl of cereal you had for breakfast, it wouldn't present a problem anywhere else but in a game which has no jump button and also - NO ESCAPE MENU BUTTON - this was disastrous beyond any recognition.

So there I was, standing ankles deep in hell with absolutely no way out. Even Boogeyman and his friends left me there to rot and die of thirst and hunger. At this point, me and my friend were geniunely laughing our asses off. Why the hell would you put this kind of pothole in a game where you cant jump or load? Just why???

One Ctrl+Alt+Del later, we launched the game again and chose a chapter where we ended. I carefully walked past the hole this time. Then there were burning crosses and illuminati symbols drawn in red, then we smashed some pots, then the game ended... No idea what WTF it was about or what happened.

Just as we thought the comedy was over, we saw the credits... THERE WAS 17 PEOPLE MAKING THIS????? You gotta be kidding! What we found the most hilarious was that there was someone labeled AI engineer - I don't think copy-pasting Slender man algorithm counts as AI programming.

EDIT: To cut the AI engineer some slack, I have to say I forgot to mention that he also implemented crows. The rare floating and never moving or turning species.

Decent, but no match for its sequel - All is Dust 2: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

This is short horror adventure game. Finishing this game takes about 0,5 hour.
Was that 0,5 hour good time? I have to say that yes, it was fun, and I had shivers few times.
Of course, don't expect too much, it's still budget indie game. But for free - it's worth trying.

VERDICT:
If you're a horror fan, try this, you don't even have to pay for it.
But if you're afraid of horrors, this might be too scary for you.

It's not often that I write a review, so this game must be special, and it is if it was made by one seventeen year old in his spare time. But no, it was created by around 15 people who should find some other gainful employment. A tree was randomly textured with words. A jug next to the well was as angular as a 1992 wireframe model. The voice acting was hamtastic. I'd like to recommend this game in a funny ironic way but it deserves to fall off Steam and into some kind of hell, maybe Origin.

All Is Dust is a weird horror game and I'm still not entirely sure what it's actually about.

You play as Thomas Joad, it's 1930 and you explore a once beautiful farm that's now turned into nothing but dust.

The game is short and there's not much to do in the actual game, all you do is walk around, avoid the monsters and pick up stuff and that's it. The game ends and with one hell of stupid ending which makes no sense at all.

The atmosphere is great and probably the best thing about this game, it sets the mood perfectly and it's just all around a really good set up for a game. But it all comes crashing down when you actually see the monster up close. It's beyond laughable and comes off as stupid more than frightening.

The game is super easy, you can easily avoid the monsters if you look at them. When you look at the monster they stop moving and can only hurt you when you're not looking at them.

The game took me 13 minutes to finish and there's no replay value whatsoever, it's one time playthrough.

In the end I can say All Is Dust is a great concept executed poorly. The game is bland and not scary at all, the only good thing about it is that it's free.

Final Rating:
5/10 - Mediocre

A very short but interesting little game. Give it a try if you have 30 minutes to kill. It is free after all.

I liked it and even having those chapter launches instead of saves was fine as avoiding and outmanuevering the nasties was fun but not having a readily and easily exit/quit game is kinda a deal breaker. I'm pretty sure you didn't design the game for children who would be the only people I can think of without demands on their time where something as low priority as a game needs to be turned off to take care of more urgent or important demands with some sort of immediacy. It looks like there was a lot of thought and effort put into the game, I wish I could have given your work a chance.

Firstly to make All Is Dust playable on a controller i would recommend NOT selecting the controller at the start, instead go for the keyboard and use Joytokey, Pinnacle or some other keyboard emulator program for your controller, That way you can max out the Mouse speed so it doesn't take 8 days to turn 360 as, in a game where the mechanic is to look at what is creeping up behind you QUICKLY this is a real Pain in the posterior!.

However that grumble aside i would recommend All Is Dust to any Horror Gamer who wants a creepy little game with a good atmosphere. sure A.I.D is a tad rough around the edges but it manages to conjour up a good feeling of dread and a nice little mystery to solve.
My only other niggle is that the Beastie A.I is basic to say the least, and led to a comical moment in the final chapter when i had several of said beasties all standing stock still in front of me as if they were waiting for a speech!.
The game is short, you should clock it in around an hour and at £0.00 is well worth an hour of your time.

This game was pretty good! It had plenty of jumpscares to go around, as well as a good balance of chilling moments that I will never forget. It isn't that long of a game, but the storyline ties it all together good enough to be entertaining and have a purpose for all of the freaky events that you are going through! Also it happens to be free to play, so no harm there anyway. '^^
All in all, I would recommend this game, 'cause it definately lives up to a well rounded horror game!

Down below is Part #1 of two parts that I recorded of this game. Go ahead and check it out!
