Just a graphic concept made of materials found through the web (I'm not an owner of some graphics used on the previews).
Credits: Some Demoscene graphics, Some fanart digital paintings, Some Westwood Dune2 Graphics, Some of mine, and so on.

Dune is a well known franchise, its like making a Command & Conquer.. you better be careful with the IP infringement.

Otherwise, good game layout.

Maybe if you call it something else then you will be all sweet with the IP Infringements. The general idea tho is great and I feel a lot of modern RTS games are straying away from good basic gameplay mechanics in favour of special effects.

At the end of the day a good RTS needs good gameplay mechanics and it's funny how the originals had that pretty close to spot on and it's just progressed worse not better for the most part. Unit Queues being an exception to this of cause :)

Thank You :)

You are all right about the copyrights. Probably I couldn't use a "Dune" name and any of copyrighted graphics, even the old ones, so let it be like it is as the eyecandy for RTS players and makers :)

BUT

There is some resources to makea new pixelart rts.
There are graphic artists who still make pixelart rts mockups.
There are game makers. There are even 8bit audio makers.

It's just hard to build everything from scratch for one person.

-----

Yeah I miss the good old one simple RTS mechanics in new games too.
I find playing Open Red Alert better than Red Alert 3.
Or Total Annihilation than Supreme Commander, and so on.

Thank You for all kind words.

It is fun to do some research on Dune reproduction, but I'm more into graphic design instead of programming, so it would take quite a lot of effort to recreate whole game, but if there would be a few people interested in joining in maybe things could go forward :)

Hi all,

Sorry for reanimating a year-old topic but I've literally just came across this forum.

I noticed that you are from Poland, me too (Warsaw-based). I am a fully fledged programmer/software-architect and, although I work full-time, I could participate in some after-hour project revolving around Dune or a different classic game. Let me know if you seek for some collaboration :)
