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],…

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…

Freeware Garden: Dungeon Heroes

I have to admit I only scratched the surface of Dungeon Heroes and cannot be absolutely sure of its size or how it wraps things up, but after several hours of surface scratching I'm certain this is a lovely and hefty CRPG genre purists will adore. It is a very traditional hack-and-slash dungeon crawler filled with hidden rooms, puzzles, monsters and everything a '90s gamer would expect.

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,…

Virtuous: Cardinal Quest

Hacking, slashing and indeed crawling through dungeons should get boring, shouldn’t it? Even when they’re randomly generated, aren’t they all the same? Dank, grimy, dim and claustrophobic. Rubbish places. If I came across one at the bottom of my street I’d complain to the council. But when Cardinal Quest invites me to go slay an evil minotaur I’m more than ready to trudge down, level…

Dungeons – The Dark Lord Conjures Footage

EDIT: Alternative trailer. Kalypso have sent word that their follow-up to dungeon management game Dungeons is closing in. Dungeons - The Dark Lord will land on 23rd September, bringing with it a new single-player campaign set in an "ice-crystal" cavern, and multiplayer. Kalypso report: "Three multiplayer modes for up to four players: Deathmatch, King of the Hill and Survival," which represents a big change for…

Devilish Download: Dungeons Demo

Alec was pleasantly surprised last week by Dungeons - a German reinvention of Dungeon Keeper themes, with enough of its own twists and turns to make it a worthwhile game in its own right. But until this very day there was no English demo to check out. Thank the ears of Horace, that's all now changed, with Kalypso releasing three single-player levels, and a survival…

Dungeon Peeker: Dungeons Trailer

Dungeon-keeping dungeon-based dungeon game Dungeons has a new trailer out. We've put in the dungeon, below. Dungeon! Dungeoning aside, it's looking pretty good. If they can get that oh-so-knife-edge balance right to produce the kind of continuous challenge we came to expect from... other games in a similar genre, then it could be good. Hell, you could help that happen, if you sign up for…

For Keeps: Dungeons Gets Beta Sign Ups

It's not Dungeon Keeper, but it dungeon keeping. Dungeons is being published by Kalypso, and it looks like it might scratch a rather specific itch. Our resident Dungeon Keeper aficionado posted some tentative thoughts about the game here, and I can now point you guys towards the beta sign up for the game over here. Definitely worth applying for this one.

That’s A Lot Of Bull: Dungeons Teaser

As Alec excitedly told us a week ago, German developers Realmforge are creating Dungeons - a game that's very obviously an updated tribute to Dungeon Keeper. To get the man even more worked up, there's a CGI teaser trailer below. It really doesn't tell us anything useful about the game, but if you listen carefully you can hear Alec squealing all the way from Cologne.
