Dungeon Keeper MMO To Emerge From China

damn Dungeon Keeper is such a great game. But making a MMO out of it?How is it supposed to be like? Like everyone has his own dungeon to manage, can make alliances with others and fight other dungeon lords?PS: Took me 7 tries to pass the CAPTA, grats to anyone who manages to program a software that can bypass this
