A price was not mentioned for the browser version of From Dust, but the game sells for $15 on other platforms. A trailer for the new version of the game is embedded below.

In 2010, Google opened up an online game store, and in the time that has followed, Supergiant Games' Bastion and Square Enix's Mini Ninjas have arrived on the marketplace.

From Dust shipped in July 2011 on Xbox Live and later spread to the PC and PlayStation 3. The game casts players as a supernatural force looking out for indigenous tribes in a seeming paradise beset by natural disasters. By transporting land, water, vegetation, and lava around tropical environs, players can open up new pathways for villagers and protect them from earthquakes and other calamities.
