You would not be mistaken to think that War for the Overworld sounds kind of familiar. Particularly if you had played Dungeon Keeper II. Some fans realized that a DK 3 was never coming along, and went ahead and started their own version. They have been working on this game for years, and getting some traction. Especially over on Kickstarter. It’s a UK project, so if your based in the U.S. you have to jump through some hoops to contribute.
Peter Molyneux backs their effort. I am super excited to see this project get funded. So please back it if you can. And if not tweet, or share the kickstarter with someone who can. Thanks!
