Game release: “Dungeons 2: A Game of Winter” (PC)

Bullfrog’s humorous dungeon simulator/strategy game Dungeon Keeper finds a spiritual successor with Realmforge Studios‘ third expansion Dungeons 2: A Game of Winter.

The original Dungeons 2 release passed me by unnoticed, although I remember having played it at Gamescom. It was a nice throwback to Peter Molineux’ original, actually feeling exactly the same, with graphics and gameplay that reiterated on Dungeon Keeper 2.

For those who don’t know about these games at all, they basically reverse fantasy roles: playing the bad guy by managing one’s lair and minions, while defending it against heroes. Being the third expansion means that A Game of Winter might have story threads which are lost on those not having played A Chance of Dragons and/or A Song of Sand and Fire, but as the base game is required, there’s already a certain knowledge about the world and characters.

The original Dungeon Keeper wasn’t about storytelling and character development, but more about the levels and twisted sense of humor. These should be intact in the German developer’s installment as well, but with an interesting snowy take on the genre with the addition of controlling the undead in the form of zombies and vampires. What better way to prepare for the winter season and Halloween?
