Dungeon Keeper 3! The… MMO. Eh?

It's interesting that everyone who mailed us about this (many thanks, by the way) immediately went for the Oh God No What Are They Thinking angle. Bullfrog fans are purists, perhaps understandably.

There were several games whose sole voice of nomination in the room was my own nasal insistence, all of which I'll…
