Michael Futter writes: I recall sitting in a middle school English class, learning about conflict. We were tasked with thinking about the different stories we had read and how each was influenced by the interaction of protagonist and antagonist.
Of the seven types of conflict, in videogames we regularly see Man vs. Man, Man vs. Supernatural, Man vs. Machine and even Man vs. God. It is rare, though, that we see a game that focuses purely on Man vs. Nature, and as a result, writing about From Dust is different than about nearly every other game. Regardless of how much detail I give you about the different aspects of the game, nothing I say will do justice to the multisensory symphony that plays out from the moment you pick up the controller.
