  1. Well, so far I'm quite happy to hear this. Now I'll have to be patient, so very patient.
  2. Well Version 10 is out for Patreons, no idea if the game will ever be free. But from what I've seen there's a lot of work done. The game has an ending, you could probably can breeze through it within an hour if you rush. There's lots of side stuff still being made and the game is all there, but assets are still missing. It's decent for a solo project, but it's more about the sex then the story or even the gameplay. You ask one fremen to work for you, and they instantly all work for you. (probably going to be fixed in later updates.) You can try a censored segment here; http://balsamique.deviantart.com/art/Behind-The-Dune-Meet-Chani-639068938 This is when you meet Chani And here's a snippet of you meeting the reverent mother; http://balsamique.deviantart.com/art/DUNE-episode2-610864784 Censored - but still NSFW Spacing Guild character design really made me laugh. The whole thing come off more as cheeky, it's not really sexy or sensual, the proportions are out of this world. Eh- I'm either too tired to think, or I simply don't know what to think of this game. It's ok I guess.
  3. Must of been sold real quick, because the result shows nothing.
  4. So far Legendary bought the rights, and there's talk of possible Denis Villeneuve being considered for directing. If they take Denis Villeneuve, Id think they're leaning towards Movie, because that's all he's ever done. At this point there is very little to go on, seems like they're in Pre-Production if anything at all. From the few movies I've seen from Villeneuve he's definitely competent. I guess we could expect a very adult Dune. I've only seen Prisoners and Enemy, their weren't your typical Hollywood flick. Guess I'll get a better idea when I see Arrival and the Blade Runner 2047 (reluctantly, don't get me started on Blade Runner, its a whole other topic), those movies are more the big blockbuster type. ps. - who knows we might get a rebirth in video games, as long as it's not a movie tie in piece of crap.
  5. Welcome. I think many must have been introduced to Dune by it's by products. I believe for me it was the David Lynch movie first, I was VERY Impressed as a teenager, then I got a hold of the games Dune, then Dune 2, and the rest was history.
  6. Somehow I completely missed this, can we get a link to the twitch recording?
  7. Holy Crap that's EPIC. I actually get most of it, and it's pretty good considering. Of course you need to know the story, otherwise you're lost.
  8. Just a while ago I said a Dune Cartoon could be very interesting; https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/27276-dune-cartoon-concept-art/ Well a french Artist has begun work on a Adult Parody Remake of the Cryo Interactive. As in the Cartoon thread, these representations of the characters are very stylistic as well, the women are very curvy and busty. You can find his Patreon page here; https://www.patreon.com/balsamique And you can download a sample of the Alpha here; http://svscomics.org/download/351482/david-goujard-behind-the-dune-new-game-v4 I tried the game, it's shaping up to be quite a faithful remake of Dune 1. - -
  9. Pretty good video, only one error was said, you said you could Purchase units in Dune 1. Which you can only Rally. But it's a small slip. The history of the game being made was interesting. And it's sad there's been no new Dune games for so long.
  10. I always loved Dune 1 like crazy. So much so I'm currently on my 3rd full play trough on my Android phone. I got a DosBox emulator and I'm going to attempt the Ecologic ending. After playing almost all day, I came to this site to see if anyone had made a game based off of the first dune, anything, fan mod, fan game, etc. I didn't find anything. So I started playing with XNALARA and NOVELTY, and started working on a visual novel for dune, to see how close I could get to the first game. Obviously I can't really draw that good, but here's a few concepts I've created, and shoved into one picture. I has partly inspired by my Dune Avatar work and other things; I could probably re-create all the RPG elements but none of the management ones properly, not with my limited skill base. Anyhow, I don't have any plan on making a full fledged game, or even finish it, I'm mostly just toying with the program. If I do end up having something decent I'll release it here. I'm sharing this to see what people think, and perhaps inspire. My current biggest challenge is just recreating all the palace rooms to look decent. Looking for models I own, or images off the web. I did get that dining room, but not crazy about it, I'm too picky.
  11. I remember as a kid being captivated by the characters faces. I wish the game was longer and had even more characters. I was also surprised no other games I played had anything like it. Anyone know a game which had the same look? I've never seen any, though I didn't play tones of games either.
  12. Ugh, not facebook, use steam; http://store.steampowered.com/app/281610 I totally agree, I'm listening to the score now, there's lots of sounds familiar to dune. The girl on the cover reminds me of Chani from the TV series. I've heard great things of the Homeworld games, when I have time and money I hope to get the remastered versions. And this is definitely added to my wishlist. I wouldn't be surprised they just pulled a Blizzard Entertainment. When Blizzard couldn't acquire the Warhammer 40K rights, they made their own knock off (so I hear). Blizzard is probably making more money the Gameworkshop because they actually did something with the franchise they created. (Warcraft and Starcraft). If Gearbox makes this and Dune fans catch on, all the better. I prefer having this then nothing. Mods! Mods! Mods! Seriously, I can't wait to get people's feedback.
  13. Hopefully this isn't a double post; The Atreides/Caladan The villains The Fremen/Arrakis Source; http://nerdist.com/concept-art-imagines-dune-as-an-animated-film/ Source of the Source; http://mattrhodesart.blogspot.ca/2015/09/dune-now-with-some-color.html I really would not mine Dune in a strongly stylized animation. There are tones of very nice looking, enjoyable western animations out there. Ok maybe not all perfect, but it's still great. A while ago I told my wife I wish Game of Thrones (a song of ice and fire) has a strongly stylized animated version, that way they could reproduce dream sequences without a hitch, and many other things from the book the TV show is not able to show correctly due to limitations. Always figured animations was perfect for stories of epic scope and scale, it's all drawing, so you're not as limited.
  14. Lets talk about Interesting and Uninteresting Kickstarters Regardless if you're for or against kickstarter, we can all admit there is some interesting and uninteresting projects. Personally every so often I like to browse trough and see what is being proposed. I have never backed anything and will never back anything. But that's for another post. I like to see how everything, from the goals, how the present the project to the art and ideas. But I can't deny some make me laugh for a reason or another. For the first one I want to show you guy I thought it was interesting with the DUNE image. "Phoenix Dawn and the Rise of the Witch" https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/erictrowbridge/phoenix-dawn?ref=category The video starts out and shows you .... nothing.. then the author talks and shows you more of nothing. HOW did this think get backed is beyond me? All he shows looks like some desolate pixar animation stills, and camera moving around in empty desolate locations. I get it that many of these projects are in Pre-Production or even Alpha. But I'm hardly sold at the first video. One more before the end, this one falls into pathetic attempt category. "Zombie: The Rising" https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1621653060/zombie-the-rising?ref=category This one the author literally quits while posting, but still post. And his page shows - NOTHING. I could forgive Dr. House as a intro image if he had his own art ... Lets talk about Kickstarters!!!
  15. On one side, I'm happy their not whoring out the IP. I mean they could turn it into a milking cow like call of duty. And then again, it's to bad it's completely dead right now. I rather they hold back on the movie a while, just because I wouldn't want it to be generic or a money grab essentially. (God knows I'm pissed with the latest Hitman movie) I'd love to see an RPG/RTS - or anything expansive on the universe and other houses. ////////////////////// Perhaps we can be lucky and someone will make something very similar. Sort of like Warcraft and Starcraft being blatant copies of the Warhammer and W40K IP's. But the difference being Blizzard is Actually doing something with them. In a year from now we're getting the Warcraft Movie. Games Workshop has only managed to make the Straight to DVD Ultramarines which was awful. ////////////////////// Well have to do with fan stuff (when there is some)
