How to play

The map is currently published on EU and US servers. Alternatively you can download an older version from the following link, however, the map is protected so the simplest way to play it is to drag & drop the map file on your starcraft2 esecutable.

Quick Description

This map is freely inspired to Dungeon Keeper 2 but all the game will be transported to the starcraft universe.
That means that all DK units, rooms and spells will be converted in SC2 units, giving them similar roles and abilities as they had in the original game.



Wanted features

- Dungeon Keeper 2 remake with some changes (Research system, Creature abilities, etc.)
- Different gameplays (Survival, Versus, Coop, Sandbox)
- Selectable premade maps
- Map editor with ability to share maps inside or outside the game
- Campaign

    I like the new art

    If you need me to do something and I don't do it in the next 3 hours, PM me. I'm really forgetful.
    Also, because of school, I only work on weekends.

    I check this page and the forum for Hive Keeper updates on your progress. I've never awaited a custom game so anxiously.

    @SnyderGuy: Go

    The single player doesn't have great bugs, I just need to add some features that are required to make the game playable and not just to be a preview demo.
    The blizzcon timelimit wasn't a concrete objective, now I realy want to release the map before the end of the year and I know I can do it :P

    Your a little off if you hoped to release b4 blizzcon, that's okeyz... But lets get some new info, you updated quite a while ago, Can you release the single player soon or no? I understand about the bugs, but in the past months, it has HAVE to gotten better, right?
