June and dune are homophones - words that sound the same despite different spelling. A perfect fit for this month’s theme!
Play games that have levels set in deserts, on beaches, or feature sand in some other prominent way.
In honour of Dune (the sci-fi media franchise) you can also play games tagged with “Sci-fi”.
You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games!
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.

Thanks for setting up the Theme early! :D
But…aren’t homophones just words pronounced alike but different in meaning (source), like night and knight?
June and Dune just…rhyme, no?

Some Brits pronounce it the same way as “June”.
I want to join.
