A bunch of us liked Dust: An Elysian Tail and it puts a smile on my face to hear that the game wasn't merely a critical success. Creator Dean Dodrill tweeted over the weekend that the game had passed one million units sold across Xbox Live Arcade, Windows, Mac, and Linux.
While we're on the subject, you ought to read Dodrill and writer Alex Kain's postmortem on Gamasutra. Toward the end of development, there was a point when all of the already recorded voicework was going to need to be cut for the sake of meeting a crucial milestone. Thankfully, a solution was discovered before all that work had to go to waste. "This happened over the course of a single day, but I cannot emphasize how many years it took off my life," wrote Dodrill.
There's time left to get Dust in the Humble Indie Bundle 11. Just a little -- this is the final day.
