dust tail

March ‘17 has been an incredible month for alumni of Dust: An Elysian Tail’s voice cast! I couldn’t be prouder of all these amazingly talented folks.

Lucien Dodge actually filled in for some of Hugh Jackman’s additional grunts and screams in the blockbuster film, “Logan”.

Yeah. Dust is secretly Wolverine.

Kimlinh Tran (@hnilmik) Provides the voices of Snips and Clips in the Nintendo Switch launch title, Snipperclips!

Kira Buckland (@missrinachan​) stars as 2B in PlatinumGames’ latest action-RPG, NieR: Automata!

Sean Chiplock (@sonicmega) Voices Revali, Teba and the Great Deku Tree in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!

And something a little different: John “Sprocket” Mondelli leads an awesome Steampunk band called The Cog is Dead, and recently released their first live feature! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dacp01rF6qQ

Comet Meets Moon and Morning Star : A crescent Moon and brilliant Venus met in predawn skies on December 7, a beautiful conjunction of planet Earths two brightest celestial beacons after the Sun. Harder to see but also on the scene was Comet Catalina . The fainter comet clearly sporting two tails, lunar night side, bright sunlit lunar crescent, and brilliant morning star, are all recorded here by combining short and long exposures of the same field of view. Pointing down and right, Catalinas dust tail tends to trail behind the comets orbit. Its ion tail, angled toward the top left of the frame, is blowing away from the Sun. Discovered in 2013, the new visitor from the Oort cloud was closest to the Sun on November 15 and is now outbound, headed for its closest approach to Earth in mid-January. via NASA

Its worldwide regulations that all main protagonists in a video game MUST have a small animalistic companion who also happens to be a huge sass master :V

Dust, thats a name I havent heard in a long time owo Can’t believe its been 5 years already since that game was released. Here’s a quick Fidget sketch to comemorate! Man, I havent drawn Fidget in years

The giveaway is over, thank you everyone for participating!

°°°°°This giveaway is in no way sponsored by Tumblr. I am hosting it completely independently.°°°°°

Hey, so, I’ve never done one of these before, but here goes! I’m gonna make this post simple because I’m not too sure how to dress it up.

PRIZES:
-(Original) Nintendo DS promotional bracelet
-Chrome metal D20
-Splatoon pin set
-Two 3DS games from the picture, although more will likely be added
-Three DS games from the picture, although more will likely be added (going back and playing older games is fun, okay?)

And, the biggest prize…

-Dust: An Elysian Tail - Limited Indiebox Collector’s Edition! Your box will come completely sealed- the one pictured is my own personal box, which I opened up to show off all the things inside.

RULES:

-I’ve heard that Tumblr may delete posts tagged as “giveaway,” so please do not tag any reblogs as such!
-You do NOT need to be following me. I don’t want to force you to see my content if you don’t want to.
-Reblogs and likes count as entries. You may reblog more than once, but it will only change your entry number, not give you an additional entry.
-The winner’s URL will not be publicly announced, unless they give me permission to do so.
-No side blogs. I will be checking that the entry drawn is associated with an active main blog. This is to keep things fair.
-There will be one OR MORE winners- if the first winner does not want every prize (for example, they don’t own a 3DS, don’t care for Splatoon, etc), an additional winner will be drawn and offered the remaining prizes. This will continue until all prizes are claimed.
-Please tag your reblog as “rules read” so I know that you read the rules.
-I will be covering shipping!
-Please, don’t claim prizes and sell them. I can’t really enforce this, but if you don’t want something, I’d really rather it be offered to someone else, rather than sold.

Thanks for reading, and best of luck to everyone!

EDIT– I’M DUMB AND FORGOT AN END DATE!!! It’s going to be April 23.

Wait, a comet has tails?! Yes!! Normally, a comet will have two tails: an ion tail of charged particles emitted by the comet that are pushed out by the solar wind coming from the Sun, and a dust tail of small debris that orbits behind the comet but is also pushed out, to some degree, by the solar wind. 

Frequently a comet may sometimes appear to have only one tail because the other tail is not easily visible from the Earth. 

In the featured unusual image,Comet 2P/Encke appears to have three tails because the ion tail split into 2 close to the time when the image was taken. The complex solar wind is occasionally turbulent and sometimes creates unusual structure in an ion tail. 

Questions? Ask ask ask!!

The worst about Dust is that it’s just BEAUTIFUL game with a heartwrenching story that certain people won’r even give a chance “because it’s furry weeb garbage”.

Just look at the combat in this old video of mine. 

Almost Three Tails for Comet Encke 

How can a comet have three tails? Normally, a comet has two tails: an ion tail of charged particles emitted by the comet and pushed out by the wind from the Sun, and a dust tail of small debris that orbits behind the comet but is also pushed out, to some degree, by the solar wind. Frequently a comet will appear to have only one tail because the other tail is not easily visible from the Earth.

In the featured unusual image, Comet 2P/Encke appears to have three tails because the ion tail split just near to the time when the image was taken. The complex solar wind is occasionally turbulent and sometimes creates unusual structure in an ion tail. On rare occasions even ion-tail disconnection events have been recorded. An image of the Comet Encke taken two days later gives a perhaps less perplexing perspective.
