Lead a band of misfits and outcasts on a perilous road trip across a Divided States of America, in a story-driven action-adventure about hope, friendship, love, robots — and the power of words.

ABOUT THIS GAME

Dustborn is a third-person, single-player, story-driven, road-tripping action-adventure about hope, love, friendship, robots — and the power of words.

Set in a vibrant and perilous post-infodemic America inspired by graphic novels, a band of misfits and outcasts must cross a divided continent to transport a mysterious package from California to Nova Scotia.


WELCOME TO THE DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA
The year is 2030, three decades after the Broadcast.

You play Pax: ex-con, outcast, con-artist, and Anomal with superhuman powers fuelled by disinformation. Your job: to transport a package across a divided America. But this is not a one-woman job. The fanatical Puritans are on your ass, the authoritarian Justice is in your way, and you’re four-months pregnant. You need help. You need a crew.

Joined by a motley mob of misfits with their own weird powers, you must overcome the many obstacles that stand in your way — through manipulation, subterfuge, and force — to reach your final destination and escape your troubled past.

YOU JUST CAN’T WITHOUT YOUR CREW.
Recruit and manage a band of outcasts and misfits with weird powers, compelling personal stories, and conflicting personalities. Manage your headstrong crew through words and actions, and use their powers to fight your pursuers and overcome obstacles along the road, as you stand united in the face of overwhelming adversity.


A ROAD TRIP ACROSS A DIVIDED CONTINENT.
Take a road trip across the continent, from the Corporate Republic of Pacifica to the Free Nation of Nova Scotia. Explore new places, take on unexpected assignments, and recruit new crew members. See the beautiful sights along the highway, rendered in a colourful graphic-novel-inspired art style, as you traverse an America irrevocably changed by civil war, mass migration, and global warming.


WIELD WEAPONISED WORDS AGAINST ENEMIES AND FRIENDS.
Words have power. Like, actual power. Fight your pursuers with weaponised words, and use wordcraft in conversations to manipulate people with the power of disinformation. Discover, record and remix arcane Echoes to craft new words, and learn to wield a lingual arsenal against enemies...and friends.


ADDITIONAL FEATURES
From the crew that brought you story-driven adventure Dreamfall Chapters and fjord noir mystery Draugen, and the creative team behind The Longest Journey and The Secret World
Explore pit-stops across America, from a former government re-education camp in the Oregon wilderness, to a decommissioned school for gifted children in Nevada; from an abandoned Utah mall to the derelict robot factories of Detroit — and through the mysterious Great Plains Exclusion Zone, where strange experiments take place in the ashes of the Broadcast

Converse with your crew and other characters along the road through a dynamic and emotionally reactive branching conversation system, where your choices shape relationships
Travel undercover as a folk-punk-rock band, and maintain your disguise by learning to play a set of original songs around the campfire…before proving yourself in an epic Battle of the Bands!

A vibrant and original dystopian vision of the near future, with a colourful and mature graphic novel look by art director Christoffer Grav (Dreamfall Chapters, Draugen), written by Ragnar Tørnquist (The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, The Secret World, Draugen), and featuring an original 80s-inspired electronic score by award-winning composer Simon Poole (Dreamfall Chapters, The Secret World, Draugen, Moons of Madness)


Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana. Mr. Tornquist certainly knows how to tell a story and put together a great team. I like the graphic style. This will be a long wait.


I point, therefore I click.

Oslo, Norway, 15 June 2020 - Coming to PC, Xbox and PlayStation next year, Dustborn is a story-driven, road-tripping action-adventure about hope, friendship, love, robots — and the power of words. Red Thread Games, the award-winning studio behind Dreamfall Chapters and Draugen, announced Dustborn in a world premiere at the GamesRadar+ Future Games Show last weekend. If you missed it, don’t worry, here’s the trailer: https://youtu.be/L_r2GsqsNt8 and the gameplay presentation: https://youtu.be/CT2dq79khMo

Dustborn is a third-person, single-player, story-driven action-adventure. Set in a colourful and perilous post-infodemic world inspired by graphic novels, a band of friends must cross a divided continent, carrying a precious cargo from California to Nova Scotia.

You play Pax: ex-con, outcast, con-artist, and Anomal with superhuman powers fuelled by disinformation. Your job: to transport a mysterious cargo across a Divided States of America. But this is not a one-woman job. The fanatical Puritans are on your tail, the authoritarian Justice is in your way, and you’re four-months pregnant. Joined by a motley band of misfits with their own weird powers, you’ll overcome the challenges that stand in your way...through manipulation, subterfuge, and force.

The road trip starts in 2021 when Dustborn comes to PC, Xbox and PlayStation. In the meantime, pack your bags, wishlist on Steam and stay tuned to https://www.wearedustborn.com.

Dustborn is co-funded by Creative Europe MEDIA, the Norwegian Film Institute, and Viken Filmsenter.

Key features:

YOU JUST CAN’T WITHOUT YOUR CREW: Recruit and manage a motley mob of outcasts and misfits with weird powers, compelling personal stories, and conflicting personalities, and manage your relationships through an expressive, branching dialogue system.

WIELD WEAPONISED WORDS: Words have power. Use weaponised words (fuelled by disinformation) in combat and conversations, to fight enemies, manipulate strangers, and motivate friends.

THE ROMANCE OF THE ROAD TRIP: On the road you’ll explore new places, take on unexpected assignments, recruit crew members and fight your pursuers. Travel undercover as a folk-punk-rock band, and keep up appearances by learning original songs around the campfire…before proving yourself in an epic Battle of the Bands!
