From Dust trailers give a peek at gameplay

A pair of trailers for Eric Chahi’s From Dust have turned up, and we’re finally starting to see how this unusual title works.

Joystiq got hold of the videos below. The stripped-back interface – basically just a cursor – could almost have you believe you’re looking at a cinematic or tech demo, but keep an eye out and you’ll see gameplay.

From Dust is the latest project from Chahi, who designed the legendary Another World. A rare entry in the god-sim genre, it casts players in the role of a protective deity, trying to hold back the destruction of flood and volcanoes.

From Dust is expected some time over the next few months, via digital distribution.
