Subterranean ne’er-do-well sim Dungeons 2 free on GOG

It's about time we boarded up the windows here in the RPS treehouse for the weekend, but we leave you with a little gift, although admittedly a second-hand one. Presumably in an effort to drum up interest in the (quite good) Dungeons 3, Realmforge Studios have been giving away the second game in their Dungeon Keeper-ish series a lot lately. If you missed the chance…

Dungeons 3 out next week, features more keeping and more overworlding

We'll never get Dungeon Keeper 3, but in a few days we will get Dungeons 3, sequel to a not-Bullfrog spiritual remake that took the long way round to evoking its revered forebear. Dungeons 1 was a hot mess, but in our Dungeons 2 review I felt it made a pretty decent fist of the ol' monster-management + RTS combat formula. Dungeons 3 [Steam page],…

Spring has sprung and Humble have got deals, hun. Their big spring sale has launched with discounts on thousands of games and, for the next day-and-a-bit, free copies of Dungeons 2 for all.

The Darkest Dungeon Of No Pineapple Left Behind

I'm extremely intrigued bySubaltern's magic school management game No Pineapple Left Behind [official site]. The more I look, the more it seems like its superficially wwwwwacky and zzzzzany concept of 'what if you could turn kids into pineapples to make them easier students?' is there to guide people into what might be both a biting and deep management game about the education system. There is…

Feature: At last: this one's a keeper

Dungeons 2 review

Dungeons 2 [official site] is a strategy-management game which borrows heavily from Dungeon Keeper - to whit, you're an evil overlord building a vast underground lair then training up a bestial army within it. After a series of disappointments, might this be the much-needed heir to Bullfrog's classic? It's out tomorrow, and here's what I think. There's a room type in Dungeons 2 called The…

Dungeons 2 Keeps On Keepin’ On

Dungeons! I thought the 2011 strategy game was going to be like my beloved Dungeon Keeper because it tried very hard to look like it was, but actually it wasn't! Years later some people used that as a stick to beat us with! Cheery videogame funtimes! Anyway, Dungeons tried a whole bunch of different stuff within a similar thematic construct to Dungeon Keeper (i.e. evil…

Dungeons 2 Emerging Into Daylight Next Year

Dungeons wasn't trying to be a new Dungeon Keeper, but everything from the kooky 'comedy evil' tone to the very dungeon made it seem that way. It really wasn't much like the Bullfrog classic, though. As our Jim explained, Dungeons was closer to a tower defence game with management bits. Now that we all definitely really understand that and won't raise our hopes too high,…
