Feeling a little stuck these days? In Dust, a visually stunning conceptual game of exploration and puzzle-solving, you play a moth trapped in an attic, in love with the moon it can see through the window. Use the [arrow] keys to move around, and the [E] key to perform certain tasks, like illuminating dark areas, or resurrecting other fallen moths... which is important, since you're not going to be able to escape alone. You can use the moths that you bring back to life to move certain objects (golden numbers will tell you how many friends you need) to clear a path. Use the [arrow] keys to direct the moths you resurrect around and push them against objects lit by a soft blue glow and appropriately mystical sparklies.
Dust might just be one of the most gorgeous Unity games you'll ever play, with the rich colours and dreamlike atmosphere, aided by a soft and lovely soundtrack by Blake Allen, being a real joy to explore. It's the product of a year of work and toil from one extremely talented crew; Alex Burley handled the programming, while Alexis Boyer, Chris Wilson, Brian McClain, Pat Sullivan, and Paul Poff combined their powers Captain Planet style to bring the game to life visually and conceptually. Currently, the game is more of a concept; entirely playable and able to be finished, but by no means the final product as the team continues to bugfix, tweak, and redesign. You can find yourself randomly slipping past obstacles you shouldn't be able to when moving too quickly against the side of the screen, and the dual [WASD] and [arrow] control scheme doesn't exactly feel natural. However, it's the sort of mellow game you can sink back and relax as you play... low on challenge, but high on style and appeal. It's a short game, and though the lack of a save system means you have to finish it all in one go, it's well worth experiencing. Unlike real moths with their fat, bloated, grub-like bodies (ughughughugh), Dust is a stunning example of what Unity can do, and the perfect dreamy bit of escapism no matter what type of day it is or where you find yourself trapped.
