From Dust is the latest console and PC game to migrate to the Google Chrome browser, indicating just how important web-based games are becoming to both the Mountain View internet giant and traditional game developers.
The Ubisoft title was designed by Eric Chahi, who made his name in 1991 with Another World (aka Out of This World).
From Dust arrived in 2011 as a download on Xbox 360, Windows PCs and PlayStation 3 and was considered a return to the once-popular genre of God games, as players shepherded a group of nomadic islanders through various natural disasters.
It’s not the first game to make the transition from console or PC to Chrome — the award-winning Bastion moved over in December, joining other well-known fare such as Angry Birds, Fieldrunners, Plants vs Zombies and Bejeweled — but its April arrival indicates how significant gaming has become to Google, and Google to game developers.
