    Despite being a great fan of “Black & White”, I barely tried this classic. Having it as a DGC game would be a great chance to discover more from the golden age of Peter Molyneux 🙂

    This is a 1997 game, so it’s more from the late DOS era.

    Otherwise the Bullfrog catalog in general has a lot of potential candidates like Theme Park or Populous II.

    Haha, I know a certain DGC host who’s not a big Peter Molyneux fan 😀

    I would gladly try Dungeon Keeper! We’d need to push it a bit to later though since we have just finished a strategy game.

    Dungeon Keeper would be a fantastic choice. The whole idea of playing the ‘bad guy’ rather than the hero is brilliant. It mixes simulation elements (managing a lair) with real-time combat more akin to RTS games. The sound is moody and mischievous. The humour is great. And it even features a first person mode in which you possess your minions. It would make a great subject for discussion and it holds up very well today.

    I’m attaching a gif of the visuals.

    I too think Dungeon Keeper is very easy to get into even today. Both this and Theme Hospital, released in 1997, had easily understood mechanics and thanks to tutorials (!) during the first couple of levels or whenever a new feature was introduced, I feel like they are very approachable.

    Also, both are supremely fun games!
