It is the most treasured substance in the galaxy. It grants extended life, mystical powers and is used in folding space. It is known as Melange, or Spice. This spice is only found on one planet: Arrakis, also known as Dune.

You assume the role of young Paul Atredies. Your family House has been sent to Arrakis to harvest the Spice by Emperor Shaddam IV. You must send the Emperor shipments of Spice, otherwise you will be thrown out of power or worse yet...terminated.

You start the game searching for Gurney Halleck, a friend who will introduce you to the Fremen (indigenous inhabitants of Dune). The Fremen are your only hope for harvesting the Spice in time for the Emperor. They will show you how to survive the searing desert with special garments called Still Suits. They will also work for you and gather the treasured substance. In time, they will help you in the fight against the Harkonens.

Dune CD is a great RPG. There's a voice for everything and the graphics are spectacular. There are even awesome effects for flying in an Orni! Totally cool.

Travel to Arrakis, also known as Dune, to engage in the trade of spice. You are Paul of the house Attreides. Deal with the mysterious Fremen and the Harkonen army. See if you can somehow gain control of the Spice, and defeat the vile Harkonens.

Being a CD game, you will see effects unlike any other. For example, the ornithopter scenes are realistic as you really seem to fly over the blistering desert sands. Visually, Dune CD is stunning; its detailed drawings of the many characters make you feel as if you are really there.

Dune CD should entice anyone who has ever played the computer version. This game not only has a great plot, but it's easy to play, as the interface is even better than the PC version!

Enter the world of Dune. A desolate place where three warring groups fight for power and a substance called spice. Control one of the groups, mine for spice, battle your opponents, and learn the ways of Freemen. Choose from the Harkonnen, Atreides, or Ordos. Each has strengths and weaknesses. It is up to you to exploit them and survive.
