Dungeon Keeper is a strategy video game developed by Bullfrog Productions under Peter Molyneux (Black & White, Fable) and released by Electronic Arts on June 26, 1997 for the PC. An expansion pack, The Deeper Dungeons, was released on November 30, 1997. Around that time, a Premium version was released in Japan. A Gold Edition was released in North America and Europe the following year.[1]

Plot Edit

In the game the player attempts to build and manage a dungeon while protecting it from (computer-controlled) 'hero' characters intent on stealing the user's accumulated treasures and killing various monsters. The game was met with high critical praise and positive gamer reaction.

This was Molyneux's final project with Bullfrog before he left the company in July 1997 to form Lionhead Studios.
