A Sad Day For PC Gaming

#1reaper0123Posted 8/21/2013 6:34:56 AM
So, some of you older gamers might remember this game. Dungeon Keeper, by Bullfrog Studios. A top down, god simulator game where you controlled you creatures, killed heroes and built dungeons. A very fun game, with a sequel no less.

Well, as it turns out, the license was sold to EA after Bullfrog made the second game, and after over 10 years, they are finally making a new dungeon keeper game. But guess what... It's a MOBILE game. Talk about a slap in the face to any fan of the game.

I was so disappointed when I saw that, because for years, I have thought about the possibilities of a next gen high def Dungeon Keeper game. You would think that with all of the games that have come out, or are coming out, that have used Dungeon Keeper as an inspiration, EA would see the market for making a new installment for the PC. I mean, you have games such as War For the Overworld, Impire, and even The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, that are all clearly inspired by Dungeon Keeper, and are trying to make it big off of it's popularity.

What do all of you think of this?

Oh, and here's the link to the story.

That is very sad, been waiting for years for a sequel or a game in that genre done right.

As much as I liked the DK games, I gave up hope after the DK 3 trailer was as close as we came to an actual game. It doesn't help that the Dungeons game was so underwhelming.

I agree, Dungeons was awful

If you really want a true spiritual successor to dungeon keeper, I would keep my eye on War of the Overworld. It is currently in beta on steam and you can buy into it for early access. I think it will turn out to be a pretty good game. I believe, although can't remember 100% if this is true (it may be another game that I was thinking of), that some of the people working on it worked on dungeon keeper. Total Biscuit did a video of his impressions on it if you want to check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5CRtNAQ6Sc

But to your point of the actual dungeon keeper going on mobile. Overall I wish it wasn't, but if it turns out to be any good I'm always on a lookout for decent mobile games for my tablet.

It kinda looks like it'd do better on iOS anyways. Just play it on Mobile TC.

I know, I had high hopes for Dungeons. Looked like DK, had the fell of DK, but something about it was just so lackluster...

Sorry, but I don't play mobile games.
A. They don't interest me at all.
B. Even if they did, I don't have a platform to play them on.
