KeeperFX, an open source remake of the classic Dungeon Keeper, has finally reached version 1.0.
This new version completely remakes the Bullfrog game code designed by Peter Molyneux and adds the ability to play in high resolution, on ultra-widescreen monitors, online multiplayer, modern controls, AI improvements, new sprites and user-created levels.
The project began in 2008, with the intention of making the original Dungeon Keeper (published in 1997) work well on modern Windows systems. The project was quite stalled until 2016, when a new team took the reins of development. In this latest update alone, in fact, they say they have included “more than five hundred bug fixes and features.”
The original DOS version of Dungeon Keeper can also be played thanks to the Gold version available on GOG, but this remake is much more ambitious, customizable and offers attractive features such as the option to play at 4K and with higher frame-rates.
You have more details and download links on the official website, where there are also tutorials for installation and for the use of content created by the community. It is necessary, however, to have the original files, which you can extract from the original CD or from the Gold version available at EA or GOG.
