The Project Dust announcement nicely surprised us during this last E3. This downloadable 'populous-like' game, developed by the mythical Eric Chahi, now gets a new name, From Dust, a technical demo trailer, an image gallery and some artworks. More info in the press release.
Live ‘A modern god game where nature is the star’
A shaman leading a tribe
On a sister planet, in an extreme version of earth
Where time erodes everything under the eyes of the player
And the power to master nature is the only way to survive
Measure the full range of your acts.
From Dust people’s destiny is in your hands
• GROUND-BREAKING TECHNOLOGY – Behold the beauty of a primitive world, pulsing with life through the breath of a nature expressing its forces at its fullest.
• A WORLD YOU CAN SHAPE, A NATURE YOU MUST CONTROL – Beware the danger of a world constantly and dynamically changing under your command.
• A TRIBE YOU SHALL GUIDE – Control the destiny of a tribe struggling to survive and recover his ancestors lost knowledge and powers.
• A LEGENDARY DESIGNER – Original concept and creative direction by Eric Chahi, visionary creator of Out of this World / Another World
FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (4 Hours ago)
The Orville episode 3 was amazing. Very heavy topic but handled it extremely well. (4 Hours ago)
I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (6 Hours ago)
Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (6 Hours ago)
My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (6 Hours ago)
@droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (6 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (6 Hours ago)
