History & Gameplay:
Initially launching on Steam last August, Dustwind, a real-time tactical RPG has been positively received on Steam by players worldwide who enjoy games like Wasteland, Fallout Tactics or Jagged Alliance. Players get to choose ongoing customizations of characters skills, gear, and ammo allowing them to dominate the battlefield! A diverse array of playable characters include a Human, Valkyrie, Robot, NEW Titan Race coming soon, and even a Dog, YES a dog!
What reviewers have to say:“Dog-filled tactics skirmisher Dustwind has been steadily chugging along for the last few years. Until now, it’s been content with being a modern multiplayer take on Fallout Tactics, offering up short scenarios to gun through solo or with pals. After two years, Dustwind Studios has brought the game even closer to its post-apocalyptics roots with an RPG-like story mode launched earlier today.” – Rock Paper Shotgun“If you’re a fan of top-down action shooters, multiplay modes and coop online orsolo play this is an absolute must for your collection. Even create maps and missions and share in the workshop 9/10 “ – Razors Edge Gaming“The Fallout: Tactics Successor You Should Be Playing… Visually, DUSTWIND impressively mimics the look and feel of the Fallout Games to a ‘T’, even though the game runs in the Unity 3D Engine it’s the spitting image of the 2D games we all grew up with and loved.” – Indigo Gaming on Youtube
Multiplayer Core Features:
Tactical action combat.
You will need your tactical thinking and just a bit of reflex as you lead your character(s) into battle. Sneak, aim for body parts, use varied weapons and ammo, drive vehicles, deploy turrets and barricades, use the environment to your advantage, trick and flank your enemies, set or disarm traps, and try not to blow up all of your teammates!
Create and tweak your custom characters.
No fixed classes, no pay-to-win. Experiment with various character builds without wasting your time. But you only get 10.000 points to spend on each character you make, so spend them wisely to find the coolest combination of skills and gear that suits you personally. Don’t worry though, you can re-stat or make a new character at any time! And as you gain ranks as a player, you unlock cool new items to give to your warriors!
Play as a DOG.
Dogs are great support units who can throw grenades, drive cars, deploy turrets, fire mounted car guns, heal people (bring your DOGtor!), repair stuff, bite enemies in the butt, and more.. The only thing they can’t do is use (the most) human weapons. But so what? Show those humans how tactical fighting is done! Wuff!
