Dear god this game is really bad
Soo...
No story, teh game last 2h, no base building, same powers fro every level, same objective on every map, same environmental hazards on eveyr map, no resurces to use, and 1 ( one !) environment type.

On top of that DRM that didnt allow me to paly thsi game for a year, ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ty Uplay service where you have to register and logni and play throug that.
Horrible controls with 2 camera views, angled in your face, and angled you cnat see ♥♥♥♥. No view from the top, get used to guess with you are pointing at.

Also whats up with teh animals, you can atrack trhem but the do nothing, also your tribe dosnt do anything, jsut stand around and pretend they are trees or soemthing.
3/10
horrible, waste of money

So will god destroy this game then? cause im not sure whether i should buy this game or not. I see you cant talk without Steam throwing hearts at you though
slocik Jul 13, 2013 @ 5:33pm 
Im hoping that as we spek satan is draging it back to hell.

But seriously, i didnt even mention the 1h instalation proces with 30 updates and who knows what more, and no setting in game except resolution, even the framerate is locked ;/
Also i had problems ith activating teh thing, which from otehr post a lot of peopel seem to do.

Yeah steam seems to censor everything nowdays cant eve say poo without geting a wall of hearts. Wonder if you can say ♥♥♥♥ or boobs

So aprenetly even female breats are somehow offensive now, gotta love it

Uplay is bad but don't blame the game for that. From Dust is a very beautiful and unique game and it's in the tradition of lovely god simulation games like Populous or Black & White.
slocik Jul 15, 2013 @ 10:58am 
If by beautiful you mean empty generic and dated looking, then yeah.
And no, its nowhere near games like populous or black and white. There is no startegy or resource menagment in this game, no base building or any kind of combat.
Actually there is no "enemy" in thsi game, you enemy is just lawa or water, sometiem not even that.

Its more like a puzzle game, you got 4 powers, and you need to solve 10 easy puzzles or so, each takes betwen 10-15 min, and bam, 2h later teh game is over.
defcon Jul 16, 2013 @ 3:46am 
Yeah this is the soul of From Dust. It's not only a game, it's more like a simulation about nature, physics and elements and how the world is changing constantly. After the story-mode you can play the challenges. Yes, the game has not much content but it was however a nice experience for me.

it took me an hour to beat it an hour to install and an hour for more updates once uplay started its not bad for the discounted price certainly not worth full price i personally like it though the controls are horrible on PC

this game holds a high place in my heart for the simplicity and the beautiful aesthetics

was thinking about getting this, why are the controls so bad?
slocik Jul 19, 2013 @ 5:06pm 
The controlls arent just bad on pc, the controlls are horrible, period.
You got thsi floaty sneaky thingie as your cursir thats hard to aim with since its a huge circle and you have to guess wheer teh middle of it is( not liek in balck and white where you have a finger too tell you what you are aiming at, heres its all luck and guessing ), get ready to pick up teh wrong thing all the time. And good luck picking up a transparent bit of water 1 pixel wide that is blocking you from progressing, those bits are always fun....
You cnat zoom out enogh so your view is constantly obcured by difrent stuiff in teh environment, since rendering too mcuh at a tiem would melt teh console gpu.
The way you have to pick up earth bit at a time and then let it go is also badly designed, instead fo doing it in 1 movment you will have to repet the process 20 times or more wating your time for no reason.
All just screems console limitattions in your face teh whole game.

This game is a nice enough. I liked the interaction with nature. The price (I bought it for $15) was certainly reasonable. I had fun for about 18 hours.

English isnt my native, want to try speaking polsih, or are you so entintled you expect everybody to spek perfect english no matter where are they from ? But hey, when you have nothing smart to say you can always try being a grammar natzi.
And spedning 18h on a 2h long game, yeah, takes a talent.

JA nie mówię albo piszą wszelki język polski (blask) przy całym. Yet I feel that what I just typed is at least spelled correctly. Your teachers aren't doing you any justice. Maybe you would be more proficient at another language. Anyway, I loved the game as well. The controls are the worst part of the game, but that doesn't ruin the game. You just learn to cope with it. It's like Resident Evil 4. Now that has bad controls. At least on PC. I very much enjoyed the whole creation aspect. As far as the Polish up top. I did that online. Why can't you.

Nice google translate, and no, its not spelled corectly, polish words change depending on the menaing of the sentence, verbs are just a base you have to modify depnding on what you wnat to say, so its full of spelling errors.
So yeah, maybe you schould educate yourself better, but i guess i cant expect much from someone with usa level of education.

" Your teachers aren't doing you any justice."
As in im too smart for my teachers ? lol , teh ♥♥♥♥ did taht coem from
I think you wanted to say arent doing me any favor.

"As far as the Polish up top. I did that online. Why can't you."
Online ? And wtf am i doing, posting offline, like with normla mail service ?
Are you high ?

For someoen who acts like such a smartass you sure seem to have problems with expresing yourself in your native language, maybe time to go back to school and have a talk with your teachers.
rickywsf Jul 24, 2013 @ 9:37pm 
LOL! No it wasn't Google.
