UnDUNE II - An amazing demake of the classic RTS game DUNE II, re-created from scratch in PICO-8!

I'm sure many of you remember Dune II, one of the greatest RTS games of our time, an all time classic developed by one of the greatest developers Westwood, which was released for the Amiga, MS-DOS and a later release on the Sega Megadrive in 93. Well if you do remember it and want to relive some of that nostalgia on your Pico-8, then we have recently been contacted through twitter, that you can now download and play the full version of UnDUNE II by Liquidream; a 3 year development demake of the classic (and original) RTS game DUNE II, re-created from scratch in PICO-8.

According to the website not only is UnDUNE II a demake of the classic (and original) RTS game DUNE II re-created from scratch in PICO-8 of which we said above, but it features all 3 Mentats, all 9 mission levels including the animated map and intro, music and sound effects remade for the PICO-8 by Gruber, all building types, all 21 unit types, all palace weapons, sandworms and terrain types, a fog of war and radar, auto-saving after each level, and amazingly not just mouse and keyboard friendly, but it spans a massive 11 Pico-8 carts!

PICO-8 is a virtual machine and game engine created by Lexaloffle Games. It is a "fantasy video game console" that mimics the limited graphical and sound capabilities of 8-bit systems of the 1980s.
