August Burns Green With These Shrapnel Savings!
Gamers Front Monthly Special Features Top Hits!

Cary, NC, 02 August 2011

Forget the dog days of summer, welcome to the Dominions days of summer! This month for our Gamers Front monthly special we at Shrapnel Games are offering discounts on two of our greatest evergreen titles. Dominions 3: The Awakening and winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition are both on sale all month long, two fantastic turn based strategy games that will remain on your hard drives for years to come.

Dominions 3: The Awakening is simply put the very best turn-based fantasy strategy game ever released on any computing platform in the history of computer gaming. Sounds like a little bit of hyperbole, right? Well, consider the following:
  • Since its release Illwinter Game Design, the developer of Dominions 3: The Awakening, has continually supported their beloved game, offering up enough free additional content to make up several expansion packs. This is true dedication to the game and to the fans.
  • Right out of the gate, before any new content is applied or mods, players can experience fantasy warfare in three distinct ages, fifty different unique nations, hundreds of magic items and spells, and well over a thousand units. Dominions 3: The Awakening is playable against the computer or against twenty other players, and is a perfect game for PBEM. And again, all that it before anything is added to the mix. Everything gets kicked up several notches once you start playing with the new content and mods.
  • Dominions 3: The Awakening is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is not available for consoles, nor was the intention ever to dumb it down to port it to a console. This is a pure strategy game for the pure personal computer. Three operating systems means chances are you can play Dominions 3: The Awakening, and since it doesn’t need to be the latest and greatest in the visual department, it can be played on a variety of machines. If you buy the physical version you get all three operating system versions on one CD. The downloadable versions are OS specific.
  • Dominions 3: The Awakening brings people together. Andrew Gross, Technical Lead for Security in the Windows Serviceability Group at Microsoft wrote, “I don’t think there’s any question that the Dominions series are the greatest turn based computer strategy games of all time…” Meanwhile, Peter Berger, a Mac user said, “Dominions 3 is a traditional strategy gamer’s game…” Look at that, Windows and Mac users showcasing their love for Dominions. It’s a beautiful thing. Next stop, Dominionstock 2012!

For the entire month of August Dominions 3: The Awakening is on sale for only $47.95, a seven dollar savings off its regular price. Read more about the game and download the original demo by visiting its official product page:


At first glance Dominions 3: The Awakening and winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition may seem like two totally different beasts. After all, one involves undead monkeys and the other involves Nazi tanks. But take a closer look.

Like Dominions 3: The Awakening, winSPWW2 is a turn based strategy game. Both offer a massive amount of content in their core game, extended through the ongoing patches. Likewise, this is a sign that the creators have made a living game, one that they love as much as the fans that work is continuous on it. Not because it really needs it, but because there is always room for some new cool game mechanic tweak, or awesome new scenario.

winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition, based on the original SSI Steel Panthers series, is a comprehensive study in combined arms warfare from the ‘30s through the Second World War. Featuring hundreds of scenarios, plenty of campaigns, and the ability to generate your own adventures (either through a few quick picks or handcrafting scenarios in the editor), winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition offers up literally years of gameplay.

winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition is truly a wargamer’s wargame. Gameplay is turn based, using a hex map, and is tactical in nature. It’s like your favorite cardboard tabletop action has been transferred into the digital realm, without the need to spend hours sorting counters or looking up rules. Play against the tough AI or against other opponents, PBEM games are easy to come by and folks are always on the prowl for a worthy foe.

Astute observers will note that winSPWW2 is also available as a free download. Indeed, the core of winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition is the same as the free download, but the “Enhanced” part of the Enhanced Edition really makes the upgrade worth paying for. There are several enhancements for the serious player, but the only that probably stands out the most is the ability to play at resolutions up to 1600x1200.

For more information on the game go to its product page. Note that the upgrade patches have added many more scenarios, units, and other content and the game is playable thanks to the upgrades with the latest incarnation of Windows. Normally $39.95 (physical or download), the game is on sale in August for $34.95.
