Dune: Spice Wars is getting a roadmap, ugh. Yes, I get it some people love road maps, but it sets expectations, where some are never met.

Anyhow, I really like this game, and it has so much potential. Superb work put into this and keeping it utmost original. To be honest, it is a hybrid'ish game, and saying this I would recommend it over Civilization and those attempting to clone Civilization. Still early access.
If it comes out then that is fine, I mean look at most 3d realms EAs on steam and most of them are still unfinished. Well, like Wrath.

First community update has been implemented, and it made the game a lot better, the roadmap is also published, not much too it,

but I don't want the game's development multiplayer centred. I would like a good single-player campaign in addition.

Some quality mechanics was so well-received that it already made its way into Northgard, so I guess they were playing around with concepts which they are testing out in this game. Northgard and Spice Wars shares almost nothing mechanically other than the game engine and some UI aspects.

The new Dune: Spice Wars house has been announced.

The Imperial House Corrino, rulers of the Known Universe for the last ten millennia are coming to Arrakis...

The factions on Arrakis have become unruly, and as such, the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV is left with no choice but to make a rare trip to the desert planet, alongside his feared Sardaukar in order to remind them of his dominion. While he holds a lot of power, he must also be careful to preserve certain essential relationships, most crucially with the Spacing Guild.

Playing as House Corrino, players will experience a very different kind of economy to balance. Tip the scales of spice in your favor by receiving spice taxes or bribes from other factions while paying the Spacing Guild’s fees to maintain interstellar travel at affordable rates and hold the empire together.

House Corrino will join the battle in the next major update, releasing soon. Stay tuned for news...

As expected, it was always going to be House Corrino. The game is coming along nicely now, and already /cough being discounted (20%) or so it is during the Summer Sale.
