The Summer of Arcade continues this week with:

From Dust - 1200 MSP
Discover a unique Modern God game where nature is the star: From Dust, the latest original concept by Eric Chahi, visionary creator of Another World. Behold the beauty of a primitive world pulsing with life and face the might of nature. Beware the danger of a world that is constantly changing under your command. Control the destiny of a tribe struggling to survive and help it recover its ancestors’ lost powers. Immerse yourself in a world as exotically beautiful as it is dangerous. A universe where Nature reclaims what is Hers; and you are your people’s only chance of survival.

As detailed by osubluejacket in a previous post, in a special bonus, if gamers purchase all five Summer of Arcade titles, they will receive a free copy of Crimson Alliance, which is set for a September 7th release and a price point of 1200 MSP. The Marketplace describes Crimson Alliance with the following:

Explore the mystical world of the Crimson Empire in this action-RPG adventure. Chose to play as the powerful wizard, Direwolf; the battle-hardened mercenary, Gnox; or the mysterious assassin, Moonshade. Play Crimson Alliance co-operatively with up to 4 players on the same console or over Xbox LIVE. Work together combining your unique abilities against the nefarious Cult of the Soul Siren and the fearsome beasts they control. Can you stop them before their dark plans are complete?
