Dominions 3 greenlit
Description
Release date: Already released
Dominions 3 is a turn based strategy game taking place in a fantasy world with world altering magic rituals and horrors capable of destroying nations.

The Old God has left the world and the pretenders are awakening and coming out from hiding. You start the game by designing one of the pretender gods that will compete for true ascension to godhood. The type of god can range from a magically powerful arch mage to an ancient kraken or a mystic monolith that people pray to.

A large variety of spells, monsters and special abilities is something this game definitely has. There are more than 60 different nations, 1500 different units, 600 spells and 300 magic items in the game. Dominions 3 is a highly detailed game and a 300 page pdf manual is included with the game.

The game is already completed and you can find a demo on our website. You can also buy the game from there. If you buy the game on Desura you'll be able to activate the game on steam too if it gets through the greenlight process.

"If you're the kind of gamer who does a happy dance when you see a thick, well-written manual chock-full of useful information and tips, you're going to love Dominions 3."
Jeff Lackey, Gamespot (8.2, Great)

"Insane amount of depth that allows for a cornucopia of different strategies, random maps, multiplayer for 21 nations, hefty reference manual, playable on multiple operating systems, easily modified, there's always something to do, tons of nations, spells, units, and magic items."
James Allen, Out of Eight (8/8)

"Superb, Deep Strategy in a Well Realized Fantasy World"
"The use of world mythology rather than the clichés of High Fantasy, and the complex but completely non-intrusive histories of the nations of Dominions 3 over the game's three eras give the game a kind of moral maturity: there are knights in shining armor in this game, but doesn't mean that they're the “good guys,” and there are nations that practice human sacrifice (in the forms of “Blood Sacrifice” and “Blood Magic”), but that doesn't make them “Chaotic Evil.”"

"OK, let’s get one thing clear. A lot of people will not appreciate Dominions 3"

"There are very few games that show you as much as you'll see here- a nearly infinite variety of rising gods and dying empires and a fat man with a magic belt- and no games that do it with the focus, depth, and extraordinary economy of Dominions 3."
Computer Games Magazine (4.5/5 + Editor's Choice award)

Thanks for awesome game!

I enjoyed the second dominions demo, and from what I've seen this game does have quite a few new features which makes it high on my buy list. However, one thing that really bothered me in the second game was a lack of streamlining in the interface, like having tax control sliders to auto tax all or most cities, stuff like that which lets players negate having to go from each place managing the nuances if they don't need to. Otherwise, the game looks quite solid and I am glad it is greenlit.

When is this game going to be available for purchase on steam? I have a horrible track record of buying games only to see them go on sale the next day. I'm afraid that if i buy this game right now on desura, that tomorrow it will be released on steam, on sale, bundled with a free game or something like that. Thats the luck I have with buying games, so when is this game going to be released for purchase thru steam????????
