Gnip Gnop!

Yes, this game comes up as a "Very Weak Recommendation" for Dune, and since I expect the system to find games that are similar in some way, shape, or form, I'm left wondering what the connection is between the two games. I figure it's going to take more than one degree of separation to find it, though, so I figured this was a good excuse for a game.

Have at it!

H.R. Giger did some of the sets for the movie version of Dune. He also did the initial, aliens "hive" set designs for the movies Alien and Aliens. The holes in Gnip-Gnop resemble the tunnels found in the alien hives, and the balls traversing the holes represent the Colonial Marines.

I thought the recommendations were based on users who own both games, so there must be a non-zero number of owners of Dune who also have Gnip-Gnop in their collection. Given that Gnip-Gnop came out in the 70's (8 years before Dune, in fact), it's not unreasonable to assume that people who owned Gnip-Gnop as a child grew up to buy Dune.
