You are a God! You are master and ruler of a loyal nation. You have unimaginable powers at your disposal. You have claimed this world as yours. But there are others who stand in your way. You must defeat and destroy these pretenders. Only then can you ascend to godhood and become the new Pantokrator.

When you start the game you decide what kind of god you are and how your DOMINION affects your lands and followers. It is an expression of your divine might and the faith of your followers. If your dominion dies, so do you. Your dominion also inspires your sacred warriors and gives them powers derived from your dominion.

In order to win and become the one true god you have to defeat your enemies one of three different ways: conquer their lands, extinguish their dominion or claim the Thrones of Ascension.

Release version and manual is available now. Manual can be downloaded from Illwinter's web page.

If it doesn't run on your pc that would be a mystery to me. I've run Illwinter games on all kinds of PC's and not one issue ever. You may just check and make sure the video card has the newest driver.

Tried this on 2 PC's and it doesn't work, contacted Desura - nothing....

Honestly I find it rather annoying that there is no mention of this game being picky about the PC it runs on!

That is probably because it isn't picky.
I have played dominions since dominions 2 was first released and have installed all of them on plenty of computers both desktops and notebooks and have not had any trouble at all.
So if the game don't like your pc your are a rare exception.

Have you tried downloading the game again to make sure you don't have a corrupted file?
If that doesn't work do as Anaximander suggested and make a post in the forum and im sure you will be up and playing in no time.

It's certifiably not corrupt, because the same download works fine on an ancient XP tower I've got sitting round, it just won't work on the two Windows 7 machines I have to hand.

I'm more p'o'd that the response from Desura support was stony silence.

I'll give the forum a go when I've got a bit of time though.

Does Desura even respond on these issues? I can't imagine they would or could -- this is an indy game, the whole programming and technical support of which is handled by two guys. The community fills in the rest. So, I mean, I can't see getting too mad at Desura -- you were just barking up the wrong tree. Bark with us, we'll help you.

Just in case UAC is jacking with you, if you are running from a shortcut go into the properties and check run as administrator. If you don't run from a shortcut, you could set one up and check the run as administrator.

Try starting a thread in the general forum, there are usually plenty of knowledgeable here people willing to help out if they can.

Started a thread as advised and people are helpful, I found some info on some other sites which has allowed me to at least get the game started, though in an unplayable state - early days yet though.
