From Dust: Play God On September 27

Yeah, we like the idea of playing God. Who doesn't?

Today, Ubisoft has announced that From Dust, the award-winning downloadable title from visionary creator Eric Chahi, will be available on the PlayStation Network on September 27.

The innovative adventure earned Best Strategy Game honors from the Game Critics Awards: Best of E3, and puts you in control of a primitive tribe of humans. And when we say "primitive," we mean it. Essentially, you participate in "one of the most advanced real-time nature simulations" ever seen, where everything evolves dynamically. Even if you're not into strategy games, this is an enticing concept...if you want to generate a massive cataclysm, you can probably do that.

For more on From Dust, visit the game's official site and also check out our preview.

There's some AI and controller/camera issues but overall it's a fun game. Not quite what I was expecting though.

I knew this would come to Playstation Network soon enough. Exclusivity nowadays is becoming more and more rare (unless they're mobile games, which are also becoming less exclusive).

I predict we'll see 'Bastion' head for the Playstation Network as well soon enough this year. Guarantee.

Yeah despite the "no plans" claim by Greg K. I'd fully expect to see Bastion on PSN. and I fully recommend it.

I got this for PC a while ago. It was a cool concept but i got bored with it rather quickly.

I've played it. It's a good, fresh game. Some design flaws hinder it. The second to the last level made me wish I could have direct control of each tribal member. Anyway, it was worth it's time while it lasted.

I love it when these smaller titles get released on the PSN. That way I can still enjoy my uber HD stimpacked AAA games on steroids/cocaine/crack of the present, but also enjoy creative games like this. I'll definitely be picking this up (how do you pick up a gigabyte anyways? I guess I'll be downloading it then...).
