Description

Dust is set in a New Mexico town in the 1880s. You play a mysterious (unnamed) stranger. After crossing a dangerous outlaw called The Kid you explore the desert town of Diamondback. You must deal with a displaced Indian tribe, bounty hunters, lost treasure, murder, and a confidence scheme. And that's just the beginning.
