If anyone is interested I did a long video on the Atari ST version of this game.
I did an unboxing and then proceeded to show the game and how things work.
The game was known here as Supremacy.

The original title is Supremacy: Your Will Be Done.
It took me a while to find it under this alternate title.

I played this on my tandy computer circa 1992. I loved this game and over the years of me and my brother playing it became lost. I just launched this game in DOSbox v0.74 on my windows 10 laptop. I have spent about 30 minutes learning the basics of dosbox and now will continue to check out this game and possible some others. Thanks.

YES! I found it!
Overlord is probably my most favorite game of all time, and I have been playing on computers since the mid '70s, and I have played a lot of games. Yes, I know I am old.
Fortunately for me, I still have the original manual as the game did need you to find a page, paragraph, line, a word, and then enter the word at that position. I saw nothing in the download for a digital version of this manual. This leads me to feel that those interested in playing the game are being cheated. Fortunately, the program has been hacked to not need this entry code but the "experience" of learning from the manual will be missed. Hopefully, at some time in the future, I will scan this manual and make it available to all.
I played This game originally on a 386 SX processor at a 33 mhz processing speed. The program soon became unplayable as processing speeds increased. This is due to the fact (poor choice of word) that it did not see to be clocked on time rather than processing speed. What this means is that as the computers got faster, so did the game. As time went on, I tried to play the game on an Intel PIII machine (200 mhz) and the game was over as fast as i started it. Fortunately this download has modified this effect and it is now playable. I can confirm this for a Windows XP machine with an AMD64 3400+ (2 gig) processor. I do not know if it will run on Vista, but it WILL NOT run of W7.
Review: Game Play
There is little animation and I don't feel that animation would "improve" the game. It would just be eye candy. I found it to be quite challenging. I never did beat the 4 opponent. Every game is different. I found it to be a very complete game for it's time.
Final Review: If you like RTS and have an XP (or older) machine...You really need to try Overlord. You wont be disappointed. I wish that someone would pick up the mantel and create an Overlord II.
