From Dust's PC release pushed back to August photo



Those eager to take on the role of god in Eric Chahi's From Dust will get the chance to do so on Wednesday. That's when the Xbox Live Arcade release is happening, and until recently, that's when PC gamers were getting the sandbox-style strategy title as well.

After hearing rumblings that From Dust had been delayed, we got confirmation from Ubisoft: the PC version is now on for Wednesday, August 17. Bummer! Probably for the best -- had a Summer of Arcade title not been exclusive to Xbox 360 at launch, the end of days might've ensued.

Review: From Dust

Anybody who has even glanced at From Dust can tell you that it is unique. Describing it in simple terms is quite difficult indeed, which is strangely ironic, for the game is, itself, deceptively simple.  From Dust defies...more
