Dungeon Keeper

The Dungeon Keeper series was developed by Bullfrog Productions, originally under Peter Molyneux, who left to found Lionhead Studios after the first game was released in July 1997.


The player uses a mouse, represented in-game as a hand, to interact with a Control Panel, allowing him to select which rooms to build and which spells to cast. The player can also use the hand to pick up creatures and objects in the dungeon and carry them around, allowing for tactics such as gathering an assault force and dropping off the creatures en masse once a foothold has been established.

The hand also allows the player to "slap" objects and thereby interact with them: creatures will hurry up when slapped, some traps will be triggered and prisoners can be tortured in the Torture Chamber.
