There are over six billion humans inhabiting this planet we call Earth, and unfortunately there are still a handful who have not already ordered Dominions 3: The Awakening. Yes, shocking. Maybe you just haven't gotten around to it. Perhaps you're in prison. Or a coma. Of course, if you're in a coma the game is called "The Awakening", so perhaps it will bring you out of your coma. So you should order it. Oh. Yeah, you're in a coma. Guess you can't order it.

And then there are of course the folks who want to wait for a demo. They've heard about the amazing pedigree Dominions 3 possesses. They've seen the excited chatter on the forums. They're almost convinced, but still, they need that demo. Wait no more.

Shrapnel Games and Illwinter Game Design are pleased to release to the general public the official demo for Dominions 3: The Awakening! Yes, now you too can experience what the rest of the world already knows, but be warned! While the demo is but a mere glimpse into the heavenly pleasures offered in the full game, its nectar is sweet enough to ensnare your free time until that time exists no more!

The Dominions 3 demo, available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, is available for immediate download at:

Dominions 3: The Awakening, the sequel to the award-winning Dominions II: The Ascension Wars, is the newly released fantasy-strategy game of domination, in this world and the next. Up to twenty-one players, either human or AI, wage war to establish the one true god in an epic turn-based 4X struggle. Featuring over fifty nations to play, three different ages (with each age having a different effect on gameplay), and literally hundreds upon hundreds of creatures, spells, and items to command, Dominions 3 is a massive entertainment buffet of never-ending portions.

The included tutorial, and the nearly 300 page manual, will help both new and old players alike ease into the latest and greatest version of Dominions. A streamlined interface, along with transparent rule mechanics, also makes this Dominions the best of the bunch. Of course Dominions 3 is just as easy to mod as the previous versions, and when combined with the new random map generator, means that on a long enough timeline, Dominions 3 will still never get stale.

Visit for a thorough overview and feature list of this astonishing title, and once ready to surrender yourself to the endless rapture that is Dominions 3: The Awakening, visit the Shrapnel Games e-store, the Gamers Front at At only $54.95 it's practically a steal (Consider that if you even just put 40 hours into it you're only paying $1.37 an hour, but when you realize that you'll easily end up putting in 400+ hours into it you're paying about .13 an hour!).
