It kinda looks like an alternate Paul. Do you know in what version of the game does this appear? I played the pc and amiga versions.

Hmm.. interesting - yeah it definitely looks like a Paul.

I played the PCCD version and I had the usual one too.




(That vid reminded me how much I still like the music from that game :) )

I now believe it's a demo version, before they decided to be more faithful to the actor in the movie. In a way it's a pity, since he looks more like the ingame duke leto, but in another way, it's understandable since the cd version has extensive clips from the movie, including chani and paul and irulan.

Yeah I seem to recall the origional game's Paul being based off Kyle MacLachlan. I think they traced over a lot of stills of the movie for the first game?

Right, the demo (BTW, you can get it here) has a different version of Paul :shock: The final version looks a lot better, though. It's interesting that the other characters in that demo are the same as in the final version.
