Update, Aug 15th: Right now the game is launched on steam for 14.39 USD/EUR, 20% off on the Early Access listing, so get it while it’s hot!
Fans of Real-time Tactical games: rejoice!
Post-appocalytical RTT Dustwind is launching today, August 15th, on Steam after 9 months in Early Access, at 24.99 USD and they are even throwing in a 20% discount for the first week dropping it to 19.99 USD/17.99 EUR.
Play with, or against your friends, as humans, robots, or even a dog!
One of the core elements of Dustwind is just how much you can tweak your character, spending points to unlock just the setup you prefer and that matches your play style, but of course also with a mind that you have to be able to respond to other players doing the same. This means bringing the right skills, or just the right looks.
“Dustwind is all about real-time tactical combat in a grim post-apocalyptic setting, creating uniquely balanced characters, and making your opponent´s heads explode in so many hilarious ways. Have you ever seen someone being shot with a plunger to the face or kicked off a sniper tower by an armored dog? You will in Dustwind! Happens every day…
You can play various MP game modes with or against your friends, or play Solo missions against the environment. Which will eat you alive if you aren´t careful and coordinate. This is where it gets REALLY tactical. But don´t worry, you can always come back with another character build & strategy (or more plungers) and eventually, you will prevail against the 100 or so computer-controlled Raiders.
Oh, and if you´re a mapper, the built-in map editor will be just your thing. So gear up and let the clusterfun begin!”
