Dungeon Empires – 3D Browser-Based Dungeon Game

DungeonEmpires_Exploringgamigo AG (one of the leading publishers of free-to-play MMOGs in Europe) has announced that closed beta testing of their latest free-to-play game – Dungeon Empires – has just started. You can register to be part of the beta on the Dungeon Empires website.

The aim of the game is to build the most challenging dungeon possible. You can also train the monsters that will inhabit this dungeon (dragons, ghouls etc) to be as nasty as possible. I did like the bit in the press release that states that “Only happy creatures fight with all their might, though.” So you need to be a nice monster trainer.

You can also raid other people’s dungeons too, not only to steal all their treasure but also to collect new monsters, rooms and items for your own dungeon. Combat between you and rival dungeon keepers is turn-based.

After a very long wait since the last decent dungeon games (Dungeon Keeper 1 and 2 came out in the late 1990’s), we now have 2 newcomers – Dungeons and Dungeon Empires. Yay! If only someone would remake Dungeon Master. Hint hint.

One word of warning, there is a picture of an buxom elf-like woman in a fairly revealing outfit on the website. It just looks all a bit unnecessary rather than being NSFW. It’s a cartoon as well, not a real woman/elf.

Dungeon Empires is currently in closed beta. No word of a full release date yet.

    Maybe the computer game version of this will be easier to manage. I could never really wrap my head around the original. Granted I never really sat down to play it more than once. But still.
