Dominant Species is a real-time strategy video game developed and released by Red Storm Entertainment. It was published 15th October 1998 for Windows. It was one of the first RTS games to make the transition to 3D graphics. Players in Dominant Species control a Mindlord on the planet Mur, in constant battle over the precious resource Anima. In the single player campaign, this battle is first against free roaming creatures, presenting a tutorial for the game. The campaign usually follows the player's hive rescuing and destroying the invading army of humans. Dominant Species is a traditional real-time strategy game, with resource gathering (anima), production of battlefield units (with a bio-engineered theme), a single-player campaign and multiplayer mode. There is an emphasis on efficient unit tactics rather than base construction. Strategy Gaming Online awarded the game 8.2 out of 10, finding it innovative and fun but with disappointing sound effects.
