GOG offers Dungeon Keeper Gold for free this Valentine’s Day

dungeon keeper
TERRIBLE.

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by playing Dungeon Keeper, a game in which you construct a dungeon, populate it with monsters, and murder a variety of invading heroes? Um. Almost anything, I suspect.

Nonetheless, GOG have gone and made Dungeon Keeper Gold – which includes the Deeper Dungeons expansion – absolutely free for a short period of time. As it’s excellent, you should totally head on over there, grab a copy, and play it. It’s not very Valentine’s Day-related, but it’s good enough that you shouldn’t care.

If that’s not enough for you… well, they’ve also discounted Dungeon Keeper 2, the also-really-rather-good sequel, to $1.49. So hey, you can get that too!

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      I got DK1 and also Medal of Honor:Allied Assault War Chest for whatever $1.99 is. I played that many years ago having borrowed it off a friend and it’s worth buying just for the memories of the beach landing sequence.

        Yeah MOHAA was good, had quite a lot of fun on that. I can’t remember dungeon keeper too well.

      DK is my all favorite game, this offer is a no brainer to me….

      Dungeon Keeper is also one of my all time favourites. Such a shame therefore that the DK version on GoG is the low resolution DOS one. I really find it hard to recommend compared to the Windows version, even taking into account the inclusion of the rare Deeper Dungeons expansion.

        I didn’t actually realise that (despite owning it before this sale, and indeed, despite having an original boxed copy), but it wouldn’t be the first time GOG have had a slightly inferior version of a game up. Pretty sure the same is true of a number of the old Sierra adventures. I suspect it’s down to compatibility – DOSBox makes most DOS games very easy to run, but a lot of Win95 and Win3.1 games are still a bit of a nightmare.

        On the plus side, at least it’s not the mobile version.

        • Widukind

          My physical copy of Dungeon Keeper works just fine on Vista, so I don’t really see that argument holding any weight in this case. Have yet to try it on Windows 7 / 8 though.

      I have mixed feelings about COG, shouldn’t a lot of these games be public domain by now anyway?
