I Got Dust and I Got Dusted

What is Dust: An Elysian Tail? I'm not really quite sure, but it sure looks pretty.

Ok, this might be old news to some of you out there, but it's pretty fresh to me and I wanted to bring it to the surface it in case anyone else has missed it. So, with that being said, check out this video:
 
 

  
 
As little as I know about it, it looks like it's being submitted for Microsoft's Dream-Build-Play Challenge. If so, I hope this makes its way to XBL in the near future, even though furries with swords might not be my favorite thing in the world, this game certainly looks beautiful, much in the style of Odin's Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade. You can find out more about the project from http://www.noogy.com, which also makes it look like an animated feature is in the works. I would love to know more, but for now, I've got to finish TANG!
 
Thanks to Mr. Gallup for sending this my way.

I hate myself for liking this.
 
Especially with the tagline "Full of Mystery and Danger"

Oh hey, its from the animator of the introduction to the PC classic, Jazz Jackrabbit 2; Dean Dodrill. This was in the works for like...years. Didnt know it was going to be turned into a game though.
 
Its not going to be backed by Epic Games, but a fan of the green hare should give this game a look.

I think the proper term is anthropomorphic, not "furrie" (sic).

It's really hard to judge from the trailer, but it looks like it could get very repetitive.  It's certainly beautiful, though.

I was going to say "in b4 furry hatred" but damned if I'm not way too late. Just because something has anthropomorphic characters in it makes it immediately susceptible to internet fur-phobes. Didn't any of you read Redwall or watch the Secret of Nimh as kids?
 
Anyway, the game looks pretty awesome from a graphical standpoint. I'm just not sure if the seemingly hack and slash side-scroller gameplay is going to be enough for me, but I'll obviously reserve judgment until I see more of the game.

Maybe if this came out years ago, people wouldnt see it as "Furrys with swords." Sad to say, but true...
 
But again, Dean worked on the intro to Jazz Jackrabbit 2. If you look at the movie stills on Dean's site, looks kinda similar, doesnt it?

Listen, uh. I think you should probably go. I mean, it's been cool and everything, it's just that I have work in the morning and uh. Yeah. Just leave. I'll move my car if it's in the way.

I thought the art style, mostly the illustrations, looked like some Japanese anime reject.
 
Title screen had it in Korean.

Not surprised.

That's my main impression of the video, yes. The art is cool, but that run loop is all wrong.

Make new friends...  or run past them.
 
Looks pretty, but in the end it's a brawler, right?  I'm interested in learning what distinguish it from other brawlers, I guess.

Not a fan of the furry character design, or this type of gameplay as i find it gets old fast for my tastes. But i love to see a game that has such beautifully drawn animations. I like the 2D look and when its all done snazzy like with what we can do today with our tech it blows my mind how smooth it looks.

This game actually looks fun to play, unlike Odin Sphere, which was very pretty garbage.
