The game will unlock in aprox 1day 21 hours.
Ahh..i cant wait! Smile

Bought the preorder on Steam and am waiting for it to become available..

I love Dungenons, so gona be great to experience the new stand-alone expansion Smile

I dunno, almost every forum i visited, i see people giving Dungenons a bad review, but personally im loving it.

Is it because there is sooo many DK fanbois out there who cant enjoy this game for what it is?

For me, this game was a breath of fresh air, as an WoW player for 3 years, countless hours/days/months logged in Diablo and so forth, i really found Dungenons gameplay a new innnovative idea Smile

I just love to watch the heroes stroll around and get all nice and happy before their dream of fame and adventure getting ripped away from them Big Grin

Keep up the good work guys and gals!

(Ahh, now its only 1day 20 hours left) yesss...

Same here ! Dungeons is great and I think it was largely criticized because of a marketing mistake comparing it to DK

Well, it was not really our fault. On every press event, press preview tour etc we told the editors "And this is not Dungeon Keeper, it is not a clone or something. It is a game on it's own"... but every editor compared it to Dungeon Keeper which is not really fair but we have to live with it...

Argh... But I saw on the official website something saying : spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper !

So, you adapted what the press told you ?

It's true that from far far far away it can be confused with DK... But indeed all DK fans tried and they all flamed tons of forums telling to who wants to hear them that this game is really bad (to word it nicely) !

Those people tried the game 5 or 10min and saw that it was not DK-like (as promised by the press) and they didn't understand or try to understand how to Play and flamed about it :/ it's really abused !

I hope the dark lord will live as expected since the flames should be over ! But still, all those DK fanboys ruined it for the game because of their lack of maturity ! Well I pity them, I pity that they didn't succeed to see the amazingly rich gameplay of Dungeons compared to DK ! And that Dungeons offer way more possibility than DK ! But noooo they had to play 5min, tell everybody they don't understand and that it's a bad game ! They didn't even pass the tutorial for most of them ! I went on so many forums to see the same behavior and trying to explain to them what is Dungeons and why it's a great game ! The answers I got were sometimes good, with people trying again and getting interested but mostly the answer was : "yes, but it's not DK!" *so I was getting angry*
Shame on all of them and shame on testers who did horrible reviews because they think the same and because they only scratched the surface of the game without explaining to the public what makes this game so great !

I pray for the dark lord to be finally understood by the community !

RE: The game will unlock in aprox 1day 21 hours.
Yea, i agree with what above posters said about marketing and whatnot...

But one thing that i never quite understood; how most(well not most, but alot) of gamers today seems more interrested in flaming a title after spending 5-10mins playing it, rather than sitting down and give it a good long try before voicing their opinion.

Has the attention-span of todays gamers really shrinked THAT much over the last 10years? Smile

I can see where some of these gamers come from though; in the Command and Conquer universe for example, they rewrote the entire game formula with the latest release( C&C 4), spawning a frenzied mob that claimed they destroyed the series.

But i fail to see how something like that can be the case here, as both the game, game-title and developer is something completely new compared to DK-series.
(well, offcourse some intended or unintended similarities occur) Big Grin

So in my humble opinion, all the flak that Dungenons has taken is unjustified.

I just hope more gamers discover and try out this amazing game, and dont give a crap about reviews(sure reviews can give you a guideline to how an game is), and actually try out and play the game for more than 10mins.

That being said....oh! looks like steam has finished downloading and innstalling Dungenons: The Dark Lord! woohoo!

*Runs off to play*

I think that's actually a citation from a preview.
Please blame the marketing department for that! Smile

RE: The game will unlock in aprox 1day 21 hours.
Yes, I blame them for not even understanding the product they are advertising !

I blame them because of them, the game had less success that it should have had !!!
I blame them because it made all the DK fans angry and because of them, they killed the community and the success of Dungeons !!!

I am myself a marketer and I can't believe how bad the advertisement has been made ! I seriously think they should know the market, the product and the conccurents (here DK but mostly tower defense) before starting their campaign !
Also, I blame the person who accepted this campaign to be shown because I know it has to be approved before it can go live.

So yes, a bad study of the market can definitely kill an amazing product ! And I hope realmforge is not the one who are blamed because you guys all did a fantastic job to bring the most amazing game seen in a long time to the players. And honnestly, I can't thank you enough for that Big Grin

RE: The game will unlock in aprox 1day 21 hours.
Yeah I thought the whole spiritual successor to DK was on a video or something from 'marketing' ba ba ba bummmmm. I bet they won't make that mistake again, not that they would have the opportunity to.

It's really a shame, I think the community would have been a lot larger had they not made that booboo.

Actually, down deep I'm rather surprised that the steam community got so up in arms about that silly statement. So it's not a spiritual successor to DK, big deal, it's still an enjoyable game for the most part. It has some things that are downright hair pulling out annoying, but overall, it's enjoyable.

RE: The game will unlock in aprox 1day 21 hours.
IMHO, dungeons is superior to DK in many points ! And more enjoyable where DK you grab creatures and drop them all in one place for a confusing battle !
The avatar is a real pleasure too ! And i never liked to sustain my creatures with gold and lair and food or they leave your dungeon :/
In DK 2 you even had the casino ! How evil ! And most creature were human like ! I mean : dark knight, dark elves, dark Mage, dark rogue... Ok we get it ! Stop now !
+you are fighting other guardians 90% of the time... Evil against evil ! In dungeons the heroes makes you feel more evil to torture them while trying to fight for supremacy of the underworld.


DK had more rooms, research, etc... Which would still fit dungeons but oh well !

RE: The game will unlock in aprox 1day 21 hours.
The thing that still bugs me about the Dungeons game is the constant babysitting of the heroes. Seems every 45 sec to 1.5 minutes enters another hero, he walks down a few hallways, collects up what he needs and I'm racing off to kill him.

It doesn't really give me much time to do anything else really, which is a bummer to me as I find making my dungeon more enjoyable than constantly running after heroes which don't seem to pose any challenge anyway.

Oh yeah, and I was a little surprised that they didn't add any new rooms (like a feeding room for your goblins etc) to The Dark Lord. I understand the whole multiplayer thing, but in my opinion, I think we are going to see that bomb from lack of players that want multiplayer in a dungeon game.

I think active pause still works, it was a
Problem of the first dungeons and it got fixed with an active pause patch... I never use it finally so I didn't even try it :/

Ya, I was thinking about temples for offering to dark gods for soul energy / gold / skill / attributes / scrolls... But I guess you already are that "god".
