Dungeon Keeper


Dungeons are always a good Halloween theme, but if you really can’t be bothered with all the effort of turning your home into the perfect dungeon cave, you can always do it digitally. As a remake of the classic mid-90s game, Dungeon Keeper, this game once again puts you in the role of a dungeon overseer. Build the perfect dungeon, raid others and slap a couple of imps to make them work harder. We can’t think of a better way to spend Halloween at home.
