'Dust & Neon' Gets Nintendo Switch and PC Release Date, Demo Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 2, 2023 @ 2:40 p.m. PST

Set in an alternative, futuristic version of the Wild West, Dust & Neon is a roguelite twin stick shooter.

Inspired by top-down twin-stick shooters and powered by a deep, upgradeable looter-shooter weapon system, Dust & Neon incorporates roguelite progression with pulse-pounding gameplay that emphasizes reflexes and strategy.

Welcome to a futuristic Wild West, where robots have rejected their life of servitude and taken over the planet, turning it into a hellish wasteland for survivors. Step into the boots of Gunslinger, a legendary sharpshooter from the past, brought back to life by a mad scientist to fight the robot oppression.

Level up using an RPG-style skill tree and outfit the Gunslinger with the best gear in the West using the in-game randomly generated weapon systems. Collect loot and use all the guns, equipment, and powerups necessary to take back the world from the ruthless robot regime.

It’s cowboys vs robots.

Rogue Games, the meanest publisher in all the West, and dastardly developer David Marquardt Studios have announced that award-winning twin-stick cover-based shooter Dust & Neon will arrive in town February 16 on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Switch gamers can pre-order the game today via the Nintendo Store at 20% off.

Got an itchy trigger finger? A free Steam Next Fest demo of Dust & Neon will be available for a limited time starting February 6. Players can try it out and discover for themselves why it's earning early rave reviews. Of course, the Steam demo is just a small taste of the sweeping 15-plus-hour experience that awaits in the full game later this month.

Watch a developer livestream for Dust & Neon via the game’s Steam page on February 8 at 18:00 UTC/10:00 am PST/1:00 pm EST.

Key Features:

  • Shoot ‘em Up but with Strategy: Tight twin-stick shooting controls, combined with an automatic cover, and a dynamic power-up boost system, means players will be mowing down mechanical menaces with non-stop strategic action.
  • Roguelite-RPG Progression: Players will customize and level up their skills, earn ever and upgrade their home base to become a robot destroying super cowboy.
  • Loot… lots of loot: Outfit the Gunslinger with deadly randomly generated weapons, including a three weapon system without inventory management.

Dust & Neon is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam / Epic Games Store) on February 16, 2023, followed by PS5, Xbox Series X|S later this year.
