– According to Price Charting, Dune II is one of the pricier games we’ve played. While the PC version is commonly free on many Abandonware sites, the Genesis version is $36.99 for the cart, and $59.99 if the you want the box and manual too. The Sega CD version of Dune is a port of the PC Dune I, confusingly, and costs about $24.99.
– The movie Dune is famous for being really nutty, like the book series it is based on, and for having a weird, tangled development process. Of all places, The Atlantic has a good, long read about that.
