CCC: What do you get when you combine Odin Sphere, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Usagi Yojimbo? The answer is Dust: An Elysian Tail, the newest offering from indie studio Humble Hearts. It's a free-roaming 2D platformer with an emphasis on exploration, RPG elements, and hectic combat, all tied together with an absolutely gorgeous art style. It's one of those games that will make you cry not only due to its surprisingly dark plot, but also because of the sheer beauty of its animation. Dust brings us back to an earlier period in our lives, both through its retro gameplay and an appearance that strikes a balance between modern day anime tropes and the wide-eyed anthropomorphic cartoons of yesteryear. In short, this game is pretty awesome.
