An idea for a new dune game(similar to dune generations)


THE AQIB

Recommended Posts

when i was looking for dune games online i hit on this dune generations game. the idea was marvelous but it got cancelled. then few days ago i was thinking for a kind of dune generations game, there i hit upon the idea to use spore's space stage level concept. well spore's been dead for years. but ideas flow from it. can anyone out there try something on it?? To find a way to manipulate this idea??

Google is your friend - there's also info on the site:

About if it was RPG or MMORPG - I guess it would have been a (the mmo part I'm not sure about - MMO)RTS:
"This real-time strategy game will be set in a persistent game world inspired by Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel series."

Looking at those pictures, it seems to be an MMO RTS. There are many of those now on the market. It seems that this Dune version would have been the first.

 

It seems that Arrakis is a moon of Jupiter in one of those pictures :D

That can't be right :D

Well i can give out a lst of things to be changed in spore to make it more like dune generations... luckily in spore trading is done using spice... inspired by dune ofcourse...

No 1:removinq first 3 stages(ie cell, creature & tribal).

No 2:removting all maxis creations.

No 3:allowing creature creator to only the creators.

No 4:modifying civilisation stage to the beginning of players journey(build,harvest,trade,fight against rivals on your own homeworld).

No 5:editing names of planets(random naming) & at the center of universe is arrakis.

No 6:allow portal gun to known sectors of galaxy.

There is much more to it. Anyone like MVI can do this (if MVI can i would be eternally greatfull).

PS:I still didn't find any mod tools for it till now.

It might be me - but I never saw such an elaborate mod for Spore. So I am not even sure it's possible.

And I don't know anybody on this forum who'll sit down and mod spore (and mod it like a pro at that - I mean basically changing all the basic game mechanics - it's almost like remaking the game).

And here - Google is your friend (it took me ike 5 seconds to find these):

I am sure a lot of people on the forum would like to have dune generations come out - but that doesn't mean anybody will try and mod spore - it's as simple as that.

Since Cryo disappeared I don't think there's any company to take dune generations for development (I mean the company that tried to create it failed on the market - which says enough about the viability of such a product). People will continue making FPS and RPG - u may have noticed that there aren't quite as many RTS as there are FPS and RPG.

Cryo died because they put all their money on Frank Herbert's Dune where they even spelled his name wrong (Franck). The game was a financial disaster. And that's why the money ran out for Dune Generations... and Cryo itself. 

 

Continuing the developement would be great but you'd have to get hold of what has been done by now (from whom?) buy it (with what money?) and finish it (with what team?). And of course there's the author rights problems and stuff. 

 

And why Spore and not Sins of a Solar Empire? That one is really good when it comes to space RTS :) 

 

Anyway... at some point some company would take up that concept because stuff gets ressurected periodically.
