Anyone remember this game? I remember my face was glued to the monitor back in the days :puppydogeyes:

Talking about the original DK not DK2 (that's when they killed it)

Always wanted to play it, but never got a chance.

I remember them hyping it.

The Overlords games remind me of it, though I can't compare the two.

Same here - I remember thinking the game looked cool when it came out, but I wasn't playing much on PC at the time and it just sort of slipped by.

Of course. This was no hidden gem of its time - if you were any kind of PC gamer around 1997, chances are you'd played it or at least had heard a good deal about it.

I've always been terrible at strategy games, but I remember having a lot of fun with this one, simply because of the concept, the humor, and other features. Actually one of the things I liked doing most was possessing one of my minions and exploring things in a first person view.

The game just had a great deal of charm to it. I'd definitely consider it a classic for PC gaming.

Ironically: There's a game coming out in the next month called "Dungeons" which is essentially a Dungeon Keeper clone. Early reviews are positive, but we shall see...

Dungeon Keeper 2 was a personal favourite, and I played the hell out of it. I probably re-install it every 2-3 years and replay through. Amazing game.
