Announcing Dominions 4: Succubi In Heat!
Next Chapter In Award Winning Fantasy Strategy Title Coming Soon!

Hampstead, NC, 01 April 2008

Shrapnel Games and Illwinter Game Design are pleased -- nay, giddy like schoolgirls at a
High School Musical concert -- to announce that work has begun on the next installment
of the award-winning, fan favorite, Emmy nominated Dominions series. Dominions 4:
Succubi In Heat is now entering beta and is expected to go gold fourth quarter 2008.
That's later this year kids so start saving up those nickels and dimes!

As expected Dominions 4: Succubi In Heat will be available for all major operating
systems so whether you're a Windows user, Mac user, or Linux user you'll be able to get
your Dominions experience on. In addition for the first time a Dominions game will also
be made available on mobile devices (including the telegraph) and a specially designed
version for fax play. No more will you have an excuse to not be playing Dominions, now
you can play at home, work, on the bus, or even when taking the Pony Express!

This next chapter boasts all the features and gameplay elements you love, but turned up
to eleven! There are now over six hundred playable nations, such as:

* MA Ulm Suffering From A Mid-Life Crisis: It's just like regular MA Ulm but now
everyone has a Corvette.

* Inviso-Nation: No, we didn't forget to do the graphics, all your units are invisible.

* LA CTD: Can you finish your turn or will you get the blue screen of death? Ooo,
feel the excitement!

And yes, there are now thousands of new units, magic items, and spells (including well
over two hundred cantrips) to choose from. Some previews include:

* Idiot Game Reviewer (Unit): When unleashed the greasy lonely monstrosity attacks
that which he doesn't understand, while screaming about how great Halo is.

* Lactose Intolerant (Spell): Give your enemies the gift of an upset stomach when they
drink milk or eat cheese. Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

* Velvet Running Suit (Magic Item): Damn society, drape your pretender in velvet!

Dominions 4: Succubi In Heat also boasts a brand new ASCII based graphics engine and
a totally new combat system that puts YOU into the game! Called the Live Action
Magical Engine Combat System, LAME works by the use of RFID chips. Each game
comes with a thousand of these, easily attached to clothing through a velcro backing.
When you enter combat you simply attach the RFID chips to a thousand of your closest
friends, find a large open area, and then attack each other. The chips then transmit the
coordinates and actions to the game's server, which then in turn translates it to the battle
screen. Now YOU'RE in command of the battle!

As amazing as the LAME system is, Shrapnel Games and Illwinter Game Design will be
pushing into new frontiers with the delivery system of Dominions 4: Succubi In Heat.
Physical media? Pssh, that's so 20th century. Digital delivery? Bah, old news. How

code Dominions 4: Succubi In Heat onto your machine! No more having to keep track of

Good one. I like the idea of in house coding, but would I need to provide food and shelter during the process http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif
