Hey, let's pay attention to a game called Dustforce!


10:30 AM on 10.06.2011



Watch the video above. That's an upcoming indie PC title called Dustforce, and it's generating quite a bit of buzz on Reddit

Taking the kind of fast-paced acrobatic platforming seen in Super Meat Boy, it has an air of familiarity about it, but the addition of combat gives is something a little more fresh. I love the moody art style, too. It reminds me of games like Out of This World

It's definitely a game to keep an eye on, so check it out and let us know what you think. It's due to hit Steam before the year's over.
