Creator Dean Dodrill's original vision for Dust had "a massive third act," according to Kain, taking players to new locations, with a new main antagonist and refocused storyline. This would have required months more time the team didn't have, so it was cut.
Kain says, "It was hard to part with the mysterious final villain, but the game ended up a lot tighter, and the story felt much more satisfying ending where it did." Gamasutra has much more on Dust in its extensive postmortem.
