Dust: An Elysian Tail is coming to Steam, developer hoping for April release

Dust: An Elysian Tail will be available on Steam soon, creators Dean Dodrill and Alex Kain announced during a panel at PAX East today.

Dodrill said he is hoping to have the game ready for Steam by April.

"I'm really excited," Dodril said. "I'm very happy with the [PC] port, I'm not going to do a whole lot different."

Dodrill, whose background is primarily in animation, began working on the title in 2008 with no prior game development experience. After winning the 2009 XNA Developer Dream-Build-Play competition, he brought on writer Alex Kain to help flesh out the game's story and polish dialogue.

"I do have a lot of ideas for Dust 2," Dodril added during the panel.

"There is no shortage of Dust 2 stuff," added Kain.

Dust: An Elysian Tail was released in August last year on Xbox Live Arcade, as the final title in Xbox's Summer of Arcade series of indie game releases.
