Isaac MaharDevelopment Level: Late Beta Test
Full concept payable game. Looking for publishers (IP help) and more play-testers to refine. 1-6 player game. 3 hours. Played over 7 Rounds. Highly interactive, asymmetrical, sandbox style game set in Dune universe. Lead a Great House and forge an empire through conflict, negotiations and schemes. Game is played through the following actions: Cards, Income, Spend, Occupy and Conquer. Complete missions and score Achievements at the LANDSRAAD. Unlike other Dune themed games which only focus on Dune itself, Dune Empires has an expanded Imperium perspective: Dune and control of Spice is at the center but there are dozens of other planets and competing objectives which must be balanced. Each Great House has different House Advantages, strengths and weaknesses. The House with the most Fame from completing Missions, scoring Achievements and conquering and controlling planets, esp. Dune, wins the game.
