Dungeon Keeper Wiki

The Multiplayer mode of Dungeon Keeper allows you to play a variety of maps against other human players (or AI with the right tweaking).


Once the game is set up, you will be taken to the world map and allowed to choose a level, with the colours on its standard telling you how many players it is for, with AI taking over any vacant spots.

During a game, players can ally themselves with others by selecting the corresponding coloured face on the Information Panel, though the other Keeper must do likewise to you for the alliance to be formed.[1] Defeated Keepers become Floating Spirits and can spectate the rest of the game as one.[2]

After a match, the winner is sent to the Torture Dungeon (the same one you get when you finish a campaign level with a Knight in a Prison, where (s)he gets to torture the losers (who hear each torture).[1]

Multiplayer does not work between the standard version of the game and the Direct3D version; all players must be playing the same version.[3]

Protocol support[]

Dungeon Keeper has supported the following protocols at various points: Serial, Modem, IPX, TCP/IP (KeeperFX only), ENET/UDP (KeeperFX only), and 1 Player (with a parameter, but it is always available in KeeperFX). Serial, Modem, TCP/IP, and ENET/UDP connexions only support up to 2 players, whereas the IPX protocol supports up to 4.[4]
