Eric Chahi’s From Dust settles on Google Chrome

Browser-based version retains all the features of home console original.

Ubisoft has announced that Eric Chahi’s (Another World) God game From Dust is available today for the Google Chrome Browser for £7.99 for the first week, then for £11.59.

From Dust has already released on the more traditional download-only stores on PS3 and Xbox 360, but now follows in the steps of a growing number of games in making the journey to Google Chrome.

The game allows players to control the destiny of a primitive tribe against the backdrop of a world in constant evolution. Want to divert a path of a river? Simply build a dam, or else dig a channel. Too much pyroclastic material exploding your way? No problem, pile the land high to create a barrier.

Impressively this Google Chrome version allows users to experience the full From Dust experience from directly within their browser, something possible thanks to Native Client tech, an open-source technology that allows web applications to seamlessly execute native compiled code inside the browser.

‘Adapting a game like From Dust for Chrome is part of Ubisoft’s strategy to attract new players, by offering creative and innovative gaming experiences across a multitude of platforms’, said Thomas Paincon, EMEA FTP Publishing Director. ‘Google’s Chrome Browser has a substantial segment of the worldwide internet browser market share, which is a large potential audience for us to engage’.
