Default [syncrocat] Dungeon Lords

I've been trying to remember this game for a week now and I've finally caved and made an account here just to ask:

It's a PC game - I played it off disk so it's before the online purchase era - somewhere between 2000 and 2010. Either First or Third Person Shooter style, basically a B-rated Skyrim. Stat point distribution, (races and classes maybe? I don't remember much about character creation).

Basically you walk around an open world and fight stuff. Only two levels (dungeons?) I remember are a sewer near the start of the game and a town with vampires in it a bit later. There were cheats available - I remember having hundreds of spell scrolls that nuked everything around me, and possibly leveling up a ton. Definitely also had a shop system - I remember buying things in the Vampire town.

I can't shake the feeling that "Dungeon" was part of or entirely the name, but I can't come across anything using that so it could be my imagination.

[EDIT] There was also a level in an old manor where on the top floor there were monsters that pretended to be treasure chests until you got closer. I remember defeating them with a lot of spells.

[EDIT #2] Found it! Thanks to this site I discovered Moby http://www.mobygames.com/ and found it in like 5 minutes. Dungeon Lords!

Pleasepleaseplease help me find it

Naturally, Moby made some of such search excessively easy!

Congratulations to solve your own riddle.

That often happens to me. I organize my post so well that I manage to find it myself.

On the topic of the game, I think I remember seeing that cover in shops. The game itself looks interesting, if dated. I checked and it's on Steam if you want to revive those memories, but reviewers don't recommend this game to those that never played it.

Surprisingly enough, it's brainchild of the man behind brilliant Wizardry 5-7 trilogy. David W. Bradley made Wizards and Warriors on the same assets when Sir-Tech closed, and gained significant success with it. Unfortunately, his second attempt - named Dungeon Lords - wasn't very successfull. Still, he re-made it twice so far. Dungeon Lords was in 2005, remade to Dungeon Lords MMXII in 2012, then remade to Dungeon Lords Steam Edition.
