Initially launching on Steam last August, Dustwind, a real-time tactical RPG has been positively received on Steam by players worldwide who enjoy games like Wasteland, Fallout Tactics or Jagged Alliance.

The development team is excited to bring this in-demand single-player campaign mode to players next week. Here’s what they have to say:
“The Dustwind community put in many requests to our team over the past year asking us to add a single player campaign. We listened to our players, and we’re now pleased to announce that we’ll be adding the campaign July 25th as part of a free update to all game owners existing and new-alike. The campaign is over 8 hours of engaging playtime. We hope all the players will appreciate our effort and enjoy the emotional storyline.”– Andreas Heldt, CEO, Z-Software GmbH
What reviewers have to say:
“If you’re a fan of top-down action shooters, multiplay modes and coop online or solo play this is an absolute must for your collection. Even create maps and missions and share in the workshop 9/10 “ – Razors Edge Gaming
“The Fallout: Tactics Successor You Should Be Playing… Visually, DUSTWIND impressively mimics the look and feel of the Fallout Games to a ‘T’, even though the game runs in the Unity 3D Engine it’s the spitting image of the 2D games we all grew up with and loved.” – Indigo Gaming on Youtube
Multiplayer Core Features:
- Tactical action combat.
You will need your tactical thinking and just a bit of reflex as you lead your character(s) into battle. Sneak, aim for body parts, use varied weapons and ammo, drive vehicles, deploy turrets and barricades, use the environment to your advantage, trick and flank your enemies, set or disarm traps, and try not to blow up all of your teammates!
- Create and tweak your custom characters.
No fixed classes, no pay-to-win. Experiment with various character builds without wasting your time. But you only get 10.000 points to spend on each character you make, so spend them wisely to find the coolest combination of skills and gear that suits you personally. Don’t worry though, you can re-stat or make a new character at any time! And as you gain ranks as a player, you unlock cool new items to give to your warriors!
- Play as a DOG.
Dogs are great support units who can throw grenades, drive cars, deploy turrets, fire mounted car guns, heal people (bring your DOGtor!), repair stuff, bite enemies in the butt, and more.. The only thing they can’t do is use (the most) human weapons. But so what? Show those humans how tactical fighting is done! Wuff!
