Greetings and salutations loyal listeners, on this post-holiday installment of Moonhawk Studios Presents we shall be doing an interview that has been at least two years in the making as we welcome the creator of the hit XBLA game Dust: An Elysian Tail Dear “Noogy” Dodrill and his co-writer Alex Kain on the program. The reason this interview has taken so long to come to fruition is due to the fact that Dust was solely designed, programmed and animated over a period of 4 years by Dean. The only additional help that was garnered was in the writing collaboration with Alex, and music and voice over work handled by external parties. Dust: An Elysian Tail is an action hack-and-slash RPG in the vein of the likes of Odin Sphere and Code of Princess mashed with a Metridovania game.  You play as the titular character who is joined by his foxy sidekick Fidget and the sapient Blade of Ahrah as they journey across Falana in order to recover the memories of Dust and they get caught in a larger web of hatred and deceit.  On our Fragments of Silicon segment we shall be discussing the vaunted Chrono Trigger, alleged by many to be the greatest JRPG of all time, and its highly contested sequel Chrono Cross and whether or not it lives up to a very large legacy.   Naka has informed us that due to holiday work clashes he may not make an appearance until after Christmas is over and done with, more on this as it develops. As always be sure to join us back on Talkshoe and Livestream this Friday at 10:00 PM EST/7:00 PM PST for all of the fun and adventure.
