Dust: An Elysian Tail packshot image
Dust: An Elysian Tail is an upcoming action RPG video game in development by Humble Hearts - essentially the pen name of game designer Dean Dodrill. It has attracted a great deal of attention on sites such as Kotaku and Joystiq due to being a project almost completely designed by a one-man team, yet maintaining a level of graphic quality usually notable to teams with dozens of personnel.
The game was originally targeted for the Xbox 360 Indie Games channel, but upon winning the 2009 Microsoft Dream.Build.Play Challenge, it was awarded a contract for an Xbox Live Arcade release. Dust: An Elysian Tail was originally expected to be released in late 2011, but was later delayed until 2012.

I can run this game easily on my system, and its quite low-end (GD says its 189% under minimum required processing speed).
All I did was lower the resolution a little and remove background blurring and voila! Running smoothly!

A lot of people will dismiss this type of game because it's not some super open-world 3d thing, but that would be a mistake…because it is kind of open world, lol. But seriously this is easily one of the best looking games (2d OR 3d) in the last 5 years. The combat is simple, fast, and entertaining as hell. The characters and environments are quite memorable. Quite frankly this indie title puts a -lot- of AAA games to absolute shame in every way possible. For anyone who grew up in the side-scroller era, this is a must play, no question. Everybody else should play too though, cause it rocks!

I watched a whole playthrough of this game by TheMediaCows. Its graphics are cartoony, but great, and its story is good.

Try what I did; lower the resolution and remove background blurring.
That works for me, and Game Debate says I'm 189% under recommended minimum XD
