The Dungeon Developers Development Kit (DDDK) allows anyone to develop modifications or new maps for Dungeon Defenders. You can even create a total conversion, changing Dungeon Defeall aspects of the Dungeon Defenders source and create their own content and games. Packaged with the game’s complete source code and art assets, the Dungeon Defenders Development Kit is one of the definitive Unreal reference codebases for anyone looking to create their own Unreal games.


To download the DDDK, open up the main steam window (Library). Under the 'All Games' drop down menu, select 'Tools()'. Find 'Dungeon Defenders Development Kit' and right click and select Install, or just double click. Follow any prompts to download and install. If you want a detailed walkthrough for doing this, then just follow this link, Install Guide with Pics.


Once installed the DDDK will show up in your steam game list but will throw an error. We can hope Trendy will fix this in the future but for the time being you have to run DunDefTool.exe manually. By default it is located at 'C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Dungeon Defenders\Binaries'. If you want even more information, then the DDDK Usage Guide should provide plenty of that.

The DDDK was first released on November 11th, 2011 as a DLC. With the 7.40 patch it is now a separate download. Before that, you could not uninstall it without uninstalling Steam too.
