Dominions of Domination!

Dominions 3: The Awakening Scores Shrapnel Record Pre-Orders!

Hampstead, NC, 29 March 2006 - The stars must be right! Across the world the cult of Dominions grows, and now their members have showered the altar of Illwinter with boons most numerous. All this in preparation for the arrival of the most glorious awakened one, whose coming will signal the end of sleep and the dawning of a new age. An age that celebrates the ecstasy of glorious turn-based gaming, an age whose mantra will be one more turn. The path is clear; hail Dominions 3: The Awakening and hail those who have already pledged their loyalty!

For those of you playing at home that don't keep a copy of De Vermis Mysteris next to your porcelain throne allow us to translate the gist: "People love the Dominions series. They really do. In fact, they love it so much that they've shattered all other previous pre-order records at Shrapnel Games!"

That's right, shattered. As in smashed, annihilated, crushed. We knew Dominions 3: The Awakening would be a hot title, but even we were surprised at the intensity of the pre-orders rolling in. The first week of pre-orders was simply amazing. Shrapnel Games and Illwinter Game Design would like to thank each and every one of you. Your love and support for innovative games that flex your gray matter is awesome. Thank you!

Word of mouth is one of the most effective ways to spread your Dominions love, so be sure to tell your friends, family, co-workers, and strangers on the street about the upcoming Dominions 3: The Awakening. While we're celebrating how well the first week of pre-sales went there's no reason not to expect the trend to continue, if not even grow. Remember, the pre-order price of $47.50 is good all the way through May 20th, so there's plenty of time to get folks in on this pre-order price action!

Dominions 3: The Awakening is the multi-OS turn-based fantasy game of monsters, myths, and magic, and is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Dominions 2: The Ascension Wars. Currently in pre-order and final testing, Dominions 3 is slated for release this summer.

Featuring fifty different nations, hundreds upon hundreds of units, items, and spells, twenty-one player games, replayabilty out the wazoo, and so many gameplay elements you could make a dozen games out of it, Dominions 3: The Awakening is the Rolls Royce of epic strategy games. A thing of beauty, Dominions 3 will be one of the few games from 2006 that will still be on your hard drive in 2007 and beyond.

So go ahead. Give in. One more turn.
