Game Profile - Dustforce on PC

Dustforce is an action-platformer developed by Australian developer Hitbox Team depicting the adventures of a team of ninja janitors known as Dustforce. Rather than collect coins or destroy enemies, characters dust and sweep the environments, which are full of dirt, leaves, and other debris. Characters are able to double jump, wall run, and perform combos in their quest for clean.

Dustforce is a platform game that has been compared to games such as Super Meat Boy and N+, where fast-response timed actions are considered necessary to complete the game. It is set in a world where filth has corrupted the creatures that live in the area; the four-member Dustforce team of janitors aims to clean up the mess and restore the world. An overworld provides access to more than fifty levels, though about half are initially locked to the player

Designer Woodley Nye came up with the idea one day while sweeping a pile of leaves. The team was working on another game at the time but switched to Dustforce when they heard about the Indiepub contest. In designing the game Nye wanted to create an acrobatic 2D platformer. He credits the games N and Nikujin as inspirations for the project. Hitbox has also stated that the game Super Smash Brothers Melee was an influence to the team citing it's easy pick up and play approach while still maintaining a level of depth for experienced players. In selecting the art style Nye opted for a simplistic style that would showcase the various frames of animation. He has cited Dragon Ball Z as an influence in terms of design aesthetic stating that "they have great poses and also good shapes"
