Description
Dominium is a space combat/trading/explorer game for PC, Mac, Linux and iOS. Fly and fight your way across a galaxy as a lone pilot or wingman, buy and run a fleet of ships with others doing your bidding, or buy Space Stations and run an entire economy!

Bursting at the seams with ships, weapons, planets and civilisations - it's a universe that's yours for the taking!

Fight to survive. Fight for yourself. Fight for the galaxy.

Dominium plunges you into a rich, diverse and ever evolving universe of space-combat and trade. A galaxy full of beauty and wonder, intrigue and betrayal, death and ancient dark forces. As you make your own way across the galaxy, the choice is yours as to whether you dive headlong into the upcoming war and join the Navy, skirt around its edges and profit from it, or ignore it entirely.

Or why not explore? Map out the stars, send out probes to distant locations, find hidden artifacts, civilizations, and rare ore deposits...and one or two other surprises along the way! The galaxy is waiting to be discovered, and only you can help discover it!

Features
  • Single player campaign
  • Play your own way - fulfill the campaign, or just trade/shoot/explore and ignore it entirely!
  • A galactic cluster of 200,000+ stars, 1,000,000+ planets
  • Ever-evolving content with new ships, species, events, jobs and missions
  • Modding Supported
  • Player content encouraged! Submit a ship, if players buy it - you earn in-game credits!
  • Buy a fleet of ships, buy Space Stations, run your own company!

Gameplay

Dominium lets you play a space-game the way you want to play it, not how we think you should!

  • Fly solo and trade/explore/fight your way across the galaxy.
  • Build up a fleet, and hire wingmen or pilots to do the dirty work for you, command your own empire.
  • Buy space stations and rake in the profits from taxes and docking levies.

Dominium is a sandbox game - but one that aims to build the box, give you the sand and a decent set of toys - and then let you get on with it. Occasionally, we'll chuck in some new toys to liven things up a bit!

We want you to make your own story - even though we'll provide one to drive the game forward, you won't be required to play it through to enjoy Dominion to it's fullest because it's all about how you play the game!


Background Story

The Pax has existed for millenia, and the Empire has grown and flourished around it. The odd feud or war has come and gone, but by and large the citizens of Dominium have never had it so good.

Until now.

An unknown and vastly superior race is encroaching on Imperial space - and it's just a matter of time before a war the likes of which Dominium has never seen will tear the very stars apart.

Cheers guys - the intent is to make it multiplayer, but start with single to get the ball rolling. Despite the lack of Greenlight updates here, dev is 'ongoing' - but very, very slowly due to lack of time/funds for full time dev. Dom will happen - but the 'when' is a big question!

this would be a awsome multiplayer game

I think this would greatly benefit from a multiplayer/coop mode.

but anyway it is good to see the space sims coming back :)

Cheers for the thought [SOT]Plasson - yeh, it's a pain - but it's just one of those things :) branding is important, so it's important to defend it - as is their right.

We have a channel - makdominion (dominion was already taken), I'll take a look at the search side of things to see if we can improve it's visibility - which sadly seems to be our biggest issue :) I'll add our latest video to the videos on the Greenlight entry as well. Cheers for letting me know!

You might want to put a Video on Youtube, just to increase Exposure. I searched but couldn't find any at least.

Probably sheep in space - they're "stock" bought ones from various sources - just placeholders of "game quality" until we get funds to author our own.

the space stations looks like the ones from evochron.
