Assume the role of a mighty (and mighty evil) Dungeon Lord and create your own diabolical demesnes underground. Dim-witted goblin workers tremble as they await your orders and dig corridors and rooms into the rock at your command.
Heroes will visit your dungeon in search of battle and treasure. Naturally, you could always just annihilate them with a snap of your fingers. But isn’t it more entertaining and deliciously evil to watch them attain their heart’s desire – and then take take it ALL away?
WHAT WE THINK:
OK, I am not the first, nor will I be the last, to compare this to the venerable Dungeon Keeper. The developers at Realmforge Studios don’t try and hide their affection for the classic. Aesthetically they are nearly identical twins. Even in the opening videos they bear a striking resemblance to one another: you are a dungeon overlord, building manic underground lairs and filling them with the foulest creatures you can find, all in the hope that a foolish “hero” or two will find their way in seeking treasure and glory, so that you can crush them beneath your boot.
