Unfortunately we’ve received a negative reply on our request to develop a game in the Dune universe from rightsholders.
That’s why after a long break and some hot discussions we’ve decided to begin our own project, absolutely original one. But of course there is going to be some influence by Frank Herbert’s universe, don't worry.

sad to see it die. but live long and prosper!
Wait, so all your hard work has been for nothing? :(
Other games have been a lot further along than the concept materials phase and been cancelled for this reason.
Considering this would be a free fan-made mod, I don't think the rights holders could turn it down unless they used content developed by the rights holders. I suspect they just decided to take this in their own direction with an IP loosely based on Dune rather than have a game loosely based on its existing IP.
You know this reminds me of that mod named Signal. iirc before it became its own original IP, it was a Halo total conversion mod right?

All in all, this is damn good news! Looking forward to nodu!
So when will the indiedb page be set up?
We should prepare more materials before setting up page on indiedb. To be honest, currently we don't have so much spare time - we're working hard on the game and its engine in order to show you in-game shots in the nearest future. Though, you can follow our progress on facebook page.
So what factions are in Nodu?
I'm guessing the Lietians and the Karzarians are two of them
