There's been a movement lately toward posting older, what we call "orphan" games online. (Take, for example, a prime Webgame Wednesday pick from last year, the 20th anniversary release of Wolfenstein 3D. We here at Webgame Wednesday couldn't be happier with this nostalgic gaming trend. So we're super stoked that somebody has ported Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty to the Internet. This pioneering real time strategy game was released in 1992. It more that set the stage for current RTS hits like Starcraft II. Choose your House (Atredies, Ordos or Harkonnen), mine the spice, make money, spend it on troops, power plants, weapons of war, etc. Then get out there and take over the planet, RISK-style. After all, the spice must flow!
