We rather like the poetic description of From Dust on Ubisoft’s press site:

“A shaman leading a tribe,
On a sister planet, in an extreme version of earth,
Where time erodes everything under the eyes of the player,
And the power to master nature is the only way to survive,
Measure the full range of your acts.”

Powerful stuff huh? See how the art of the game is shaping up in this developer diary:
