Ubisoft has released a new E3 trailer for god game Project Dust.

According to the game’s creative director, Eric Chahi, the game’s a spiritual heir to Populous and based on a “technological breakthrough which allows [players] to have a world that’s entirely dynamic.”

Chahi also said that the developers want “Project Dust, to be the most spectacular XBLA/PSN game to-date, by giving players a deep experience, in a believable world.”

Ambitious indeed.

You can read the full interview with the Chahi over on Facebook.

Project Dust is slated for release on PC, PSN, and XBL in spring 2011.

    Gosh, I loved FlashBack… I still have very, very fond memories of playing that on my old PowerMac.

    This reminded me of that game AFRIKA, whatever happened to that? It was hyped to be the best looking game on PS3 then it just disappeared XD

    It was released in Japan and then the US (as Hakuna Matata) but never here. I picked up the US version in Hong Kong. The animation is the stand out feature, graphical fidelity isn’t all that great.

    I saw a videoreview of Afrika, but it wasn’t all that impressive at all really in my opinion, nothing too special.

    As a game there isn’t a whole lot to it. It’s quite a nice chill game though with some good educational aspects from a wildlife and photographic point of view.

    Interesting, need more info though. I wonder why they’re all wearing masks – maybe because of excessive dust?

    I thought this was gonna be a retail game. Looks really impressive for just being a download.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what this game has to do with Flashback? Are you talking about that old pc side scroller about alien conspiracy? I also loved that game. Played it to my heart.

    @ 12 & 12: Eric Chahi – Project Dust‘s mastermind – was the brains and visionary behind Delphine Software’s Another World and Flashback: The Quest for Identity… which is precisely why I’m so excited for this game.

    Did anybody ever play Heart of Darkness? I bet that was properly mint too.

    Always knew Another World as Out of this World.
    Lovely games these two (Flashback and Another World). Good to know the guy behind these is also on Project Dust. Looking forward to it

    Would prefer the headline to read ‘Eric Chahi’s Project Dust looks very polished’… given his pedigree.

    @ 16. Not that it really matters but what the hey….Flashback is not an Eric Chahi game. Heart or Darkness was but was the very opposite of “mint”. It was “manure” in fact… but looked nice… at the time

    That game looks interesting, but I’d like to get a look at the gameplay mechanics.
