Westwood Studios’ classic real-time strategy game Dune II: The Building Of A Dynasty is now available for you to play on your browser, in the form of an HTML5 port.
Originally released in 1992, Dune II was a pioneering game that is credited with paving the way for later real-time strategy games such as Warcraft. While it was not the first real-time strategy game, it introduced conventions and game mechanics that are still in common use in the genre today.
Based on David Lynch’s 1984 movie Dune, in turn an adaptation of the famous science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert, Dune II puts the player in the role of one of three noble houses competing for control of the desert planet Arrakis.
