"The game is a point and click western adventure game in which the player, playing a character called The Stranger, travels around a virtual old western desert town in the New Mexico desert in 1882."

"The characters encountered in Dust are rendered by way of photographs of professional actors given limited animation in sync with dialogue. A later game produced by the same company, Titanic: Adventure Out of Time, uses the same technique."

Architecture: 68k PPC

Minimum requirements: System 6.0.7, 68030 processor, 8 MB RAM, 256 colors.

Did you already investigate the old church at night? uh uh Smile

Dust has a great atmosphere and cool characters, from the poker players to the mayor's wife. And I was so close to elope to Mexico with the blackjack gal Wink

This game is soo wired, enough to make it interesting. For some reason it creeps me out a bit, maybe its the photo motion characters again Tongue

Don't bother; I just updated the mirror download. That's why this showed up on the tracker page. Click on "revisions" in the upper right hand corner and it shows you what's been done.

There's no PC part, at least not on my CD. The Windows requirements are printed on back of the case for some reason, but all the rest of the info is Mac-specific and there are no PC-specific files or partitions on the CD. PCs don't know what to do with the disc.

If the CD ROM of that game includes the PC version, please use Toast to create an image of the CD, just to keep the PC part... Smile

You can still upload it to the site. I didn't get it because I have limited time on the internet and it's not quite enough to get such a big file uploaded (395MB.)

Oh and I just made an image of it and wanted to upload it tomorrow. Thanks anyway, great game, I can only recommend it. This is the type of game I really miss today - rather non-linear gameplay (though the game drags you into the direction it wants you) and great wild west feeling. Don't know what they had more than those games of today. Anyway, take a look at it - runs perfect in 9.2.2 and even under classic in OS X.
