I really do love open source game engines. Keeping older titles alive on new platforms and bringing bug fixes with them. This time Dungeon Keeper II gets the treatment.

What are the aims of OpenKeeper?
QuoteGoal is to fully implement the game (version 1.7 with 3 bonus packs) as open source cross platform version, with minimal or no changes at all, using the original game assets. So it will require the original game to play / develop. Futher development could have fan made graphics (to at least enable standalone version) and features.

You can see progress on it with this video (which is a little old now)

it's great, but I have to admit that I'm not sure that I'll dig my old cd (no idea where I put that thing).

1st, I don't have a cd drive anymore, and I'm cheap so I won't buy it again on steam or gog.
2nd, I truly enjoy war for the overworld, and it is linux native.

There's War for the Overworld and Dungeons 2, but would love to reminisce the Dungeon Keeper 2 without the lagging. It's now on discount at gog for 2.39.

EDIT: there's also OpenDungeons if there is anyone who didn't know about it.
