Taking aesthetic hints from franchises like the Mad Max films, Death Race, and the Gaslands miniatures game, Dustbiters is a card game where players must outrun rival car gangs and a major dust storm encroaching upon the horizon of the badlands. It's geared for two players and is light on rules, but heavy on strategy. The design team includes a few big names from other indie hits in various mediums. These names include Jan Willem NijmanTerri Vellmann, and Robbie Fraser.

According to a press release on the game:

There's no math, dice or tokens to keep track of; every maneuver and act of sabotage unfolds through Dustbiters' hand-drawn deck of 21 different cars, bikes, and horses.
Drivers leverage abilities and effects unique to each ride, both to foil their rival and keep clear from a deadly storm wiping out the convoy's trailing member at the end of every turn. Balancing cautious, defensive maneuvers with reckless, risk-taking destruction is the fuel feeding Dustbiters' engine.
Competitors eager to rule the tabletop badlands can box in a copy of the game by supporting the Kickstarter campaign for as little as €22 before shipping (or ~$26, with final pricing depending on the currency exchange rate at the end of the campaign). Additional bonuses are available through community-focused stretch goals and a range of individually priced tiers. Heck, five lucky backers can even get themselves a custom card based on their very own car.
