    this is cool. call it dungeon miner and make sure you implement some unique features are your done.

    - Don't worry about infringements; if you look at any "i" app they all rip each other off and dungeon Keeper is Free for everyone on GOG; it is not a product worth selling.
    1st person switch will be really nice.

    You made a mistake posting this, i have been following the CrashBandicoot remake for a few years now:

    EA are more likely to wait until you get close to finishing it then rip you off that the other way around LOL
    Keep up the good work

    Because they enjoy it?

    But to be on the safe side, all of the above progress is bound to change sooner or later, this doesn't actually in any way represent the final game, but merely a progressive update as many folks have asked me to give updates on the project.
    EA aren't going to sue you. See War for the Overworld. If they were going to they would have already gone after that by now.

    Doesn't matter, they can sue you for gameplay copying, and EA isn't a kind Company...

    Hi there,

    As I've stated in my first post I'll be registering the game under a different name due to EA registering the Dungeon Keeper name back in 2012. Please read the first post through before responding.

    This looks absolutely fantastic

    I love new releases taking on an old school feel. It takes me back to the golden days of gaming - makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside lol

    Best of luck with this project, I am subscribing to this thread as I'm interested to see how you progress.

    Good work that man!

    Dungeon Keeper 1 Remake

    Hi Folks,

    Before I jump into all the goodness of the Dungeon Keeper 1 remake, I would like to introduce myself. Name is Ettienne, and I'm a South African based 3D Artist/Game Developer. I mainly use Blender 3D as my source 3D model package. Hi to all!

    Now on to the game I'm working on.

    For those of you who might have had the chance to play Dungeon Keeper 1 back in the day, some of this might look familiar to you. I've been working on this Dungeon Keeper 1 remake since the beginning of 2013 spare-time bases[/COLOR]. Though there is still much to do, I wanted to share some progress on the game itself. Before moving into UDK I used the Blender Game Engine as a testing ground for all the assets that I'm modeling before I send them off to UDK for final testing etc. These screenshots do not represent the final game but merely serve the purpose of showing progress.

    Project Details:

    What my aim with Dungeon Keeper 1 Remake is, is to improve upon the original game but at the same time, trying to stay true to the original "Dark" art direction of the game together with keeping the core gameplay for the most part in tact. In the project I'm working on building all the original DK1 maps as well as adding a bucket load amount of new worlds and maps to the game. The majority of the the tile blocks for all the rooms and world geometry has been completed, currently what I'm working on is the finer details like the, workshop machines, torture chamber tables, creature lairs/homes, dungeon heart etc.

    As of right now, my main focus revolves around building the world first, after which the characters like the creatures will be modeled. This process I've already started specifically due to the Dungeon heart having 4 trolls holding it up. I'm trying to stay as much as possible true to the original art of Dungeon Keeper 1. This in mind, I'm working closely with the original sprites of the game to attempt in keeping the same atmosphere that the original had. The current progress on the game focuses on completing the "snow" tile sets.

    With all of this in mind, I would like to share some screenshots with you guys related directly to the pre-alpha I built as a testing ground for all the tilesets, gameplay mechanics, and many more. The original Blender Game Version I tested had the majority of the gameplay mechanics set already, however, UDK proved to be far more adequate for a project of this scale. Of course, the game will most likely be released under a different name to avoid copyright due to the "Dungeon Keeper" name being registered by EA back in 2012.

    As with the original game, the remake will also allow for possession of creatures to go into a more first person view of the creature, as of right now, I'm trying to work on balancing the visual to be pleasing both to the top-down view as well as the first person view.

    Hope you guys like the progress.
