Duster (Early Access) – Explore the West in this Endless Roguelike

Game Review

Duster is a steampunk Wild West adventure game that has that old-school top-down perspective like in the Atari days.

You play as a random dude and you’re running across the desert with various areas that are procedurally-generated. There are towns that let you heal up, but pretty much everything else will kill you. You’ll run into bandits, robots, animals, and even lawmen all scouring around for someone to kill (you). You can encounter weather conditions like frostbite or even get killed by sunburn or food poisoning. The game resets when you get slaughtered. The game makes it very tense when you need to watch out for nearly everything under the sun.

The primary objective of the game is to find and take over the richest goldmine in the land, but you need to work your way out there by buying tools and earning cash. You can do this by shifting minerals, mining for gold, doing quests, and even killing outlaw bandits and getting rewarded so you can upgrade yourself!

The game has six different classes to choose from with unique attributes. You should get some cash fast to buy ammo and a gun when you start so you can stretch out your time before you get killed and need to restart again.

Duster features some neat artwork and is definitely worth a play. It’s a roguelike that’s truly unique.

  • Nice artwork
  • Old-school gameplay
  • Roguelike
  • Wild West theme
  • Simple concept but seriously addiciting
  • Pretty difficult and learning curve is steep
