‘Dust: An Elysian Tail’ Sequel & New Project Confirmed By Creator

Dean Dodrill has confirmed that a sequel to the extremely gorgeous action-platformer Dust: An Elysian Tail, will be in the works at some point.

Dust: An Elysian Tail was one of the best games to come out of 2012, with the game scoring a 9 on Analog Addiction. We have reached out to the solo creator Dean Dodrill on Twitter, he replied with some very interesting news regarding his future; and the future of the series.

This not only confirms that a new game in the Dust series will appear, but we will also be seeing another project from Dodrill. We have further inquired, asking when these projects could be seeing the light of day.

What could this brand new project be? Will the sequel feature Dust and Fidget? Or will it be a brand new take on this gorgeous universe? We will update you if we hear anymore, but until then keep it here on Analog Addiction for all things Dust.

  1. I played this game originally when it came out on the XBox Arcade and I loved it so much so I paid full price for it on Steam. I don’t even care, it was $17 well spent. No matter how many times I play through it though, I always tear up at the end. I am really looking forward to the sequel. I don’t think I would have even heard of it if not for my boyfriend knowing the voice actor for Haley.


  2. I saw my brother play this when we were on a vecation, it looked like fun so i wanted to try, a YEAR later when i nearly had forgotten the game a friend gave it to me on steam. it was the only thing i played for some days.


  3. Man, I really loved this game. One of the most fun games I’ve played in a few years. I was already surprised since it was an indie title, but when I found out pretty much the whole game was done by one person I was definitely impressed… I got the game for free with PS+, and it’s a good thing I did because otherwise I would have probably never even looked at the game. My only complaint was that the game felt too short and didn’t have a New Game + option.


  4. Omg this game was amazing! I had a mini spaz attack when dust died though I mentaly cried… BEST GAME EVER!! pleeeeeeeaaaase make a sequel!! 😶


  5. Spent the time to get 117% on my first playthrough. The whole ending sequence floored me. The VA for Dust did a great job with expressing the anger during the final confrontation. I almost cried at the end, too.


      • Bought the game on sale a week agol best purchase I made all year.
        Fidget cracked me up everytime over and over XDD
        Just finished the game and Im actually crying.

        Anyways, is there any news about this sequal game? (Im asking since this was published a year ago)


        • Not that I’ve heard, Dean Dodrill does all his work solo (if he continues doing so in the sequel) so it may take longer.

          With the success of Dust being included on Games With Gold, I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a sequel before a new project. Plus he is bringing Dust to PS4 soon, I think we should expect more announcements next year.


  6. […] Back when Dust: An Elysian Tail was originally released on the Xbox 360, our Editor-in-Chief absolutely loved it, calling it “a masterpiece.” Fast-forward to 2013, and a second Analog Addition opinion also called Dust “an amazing experience that shouldn’t be missed by anyone.” Also in 2013, its creator Dean Dodrill had confirmed that a sequel will eventually be in-the-works. […]


  7. I really really really loved this game it did indeed make me cry. such a great game best 15$ i have ever spent, maby that i ever will spend. cant wait for numbah 2.


  8. OMFG! I want a sequel! NOW! it’s such a good game which made me CRY! the literall tears out of my face! I grew a bond with Dust himself too. Please a Date and NAME!


  9. I have high hopes for the sequel to come. The graphics were simply gorgeous and I enjoyed the gameplay style! It was very much a challenge I appreciated in a videogame. Whichever direction he decides to take the next one, I will GLADLY buy it!


  10. Considering there are. 5 blades of elysium, I’m guessing there’s a good chance of a new protaganist , new sword, and possibly a new helper, seeing as each of the blades has a guardian.


  11. I loved the game but if they could make it super long like 30 hrs or make addons to the game also I loved how big the map is but I want them to make it bigger than the first one and there should be seperate completion for main quest and side over please let it happen for current gen and next


  12. I loved that game and i think it would be cool to play as dust with a new outfit and new abilitys and stuff maybe a skill tree :)


  13. I really really hope that the next one has dust and fidget in it! They left so many questions unanswered! And you just know that there is a sequel with how he ended it! Loved the art and everything.
