Daily “Dune”: Yeah, We’re Gonna Need to Play “Dune Imerium” ASAP

You may have noticed that we here at Nerdbot are just a weeeee bit obsessed with Frank Herbert‘s seminal work of science fiction, “Dune.” It’s like our “Star Wars,” although we DO really, really, love the ‘Wars (and “Star Trek” too).

So many incredible things are coming out in conjunction with the new film from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, including toys, comics, new editions of the original book saga, a NEW book saga, and games….

Like Dire Wolf Digital’s upcoming Dune: Imperium!


Dire Wolf Digital, Gale Force 9, and Genuine Entertainment have combined forces to produce DUNE: IMPERIUM, the first original board game set within the Dune universe in nearly 40 years.

Designed by Paul Dennen, the creator of the hit Clank! game series, Dune: Imperium is a 1-4 player game that marries two fan-favorite mechanics — deck-building and worker-placement — into a deeply thematic experience with climactic conflicts and choices that unfold across the Imperium.

The stakes were high on our first new Dune game, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve done with Scott Martins, Paul, and the rest of the amazing team at Dire Wolf Digital. It’s been a privilege working with one of my favorite game makers and true Dune fans, and Legendary has been a dream collaborator who truly empowered us to do things no Dune game has ever done before.

Yeah so….we need it. We need it, and we can’t wait to order it when it’s available.

Dune” is STILL scheduled to hit theaters on December 18th 2020, although we are pretty sure it’ll get rescheduled again.
