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. Your pretender controls one of over sixty different nations and with the help of that nation he will spread his word and battle the other pretenders. Dominions 3 is a turn based strategy game. You can play single- or multiplayer (1 - 23 players) with simultaneous turns. There are more than 1500 different units, 600 spells and 300 magic items in the game. The game also features a medieval musical score by Erik Ask Uppmark and Anna Rynefors, both awarded the title of Musicians of the Realm by the Swedish Zornmärkeskommiten. Dominions 3 is a highly detailed game and a 300 page pdf manual is included in the download.
I bought this game after I was already hooked on the Second. I never regretted a single dollar towards it.
After a while I noticed that it was one of the games that I went back the most to and played since its released up until me re-purchasing it digitally on Desura.
The depth of the game is hard to define, its advanced chess except you have 3000 pieces. And its up to you to decide how you want to move them. Forget the modern graphics, those sprite graphics definitely have their own charm. You will definitely be lost in time and space because of this gem.

Equip your summoned Angels, Deamons or other monsters with different items you have forged.
Sacrifice slaves to perform the most vile of magics: Blood magic.
And all these options do not even include the hundreds of mods that have been made by the community.
If you like GRAND strategy games you should definitely check this out.
