This game was scheduled to be released by ASCII for the PC, Genesis, and of course, the SNES. It was apparently going to be some sort of strategy game. A rom image of the Genesis version is available, but as far as I can tell, it was never officially released in any form. Jonny got a hold of one of the people who worked on the game, Tim Ryan:
I worked at ASCII, the publisher. It was being developed externally by Visual Concepts on the SNES and PC. I was their producer. I was also the project leader on the Sega port done in house. There were a number of titles I worked on that got cancelled when ASCII imploded (ran out of cash) and fired everybody. Visual Concepts bought the rights back and published the PC version, possibly a Sega version. The SNES version stopped making progress well before the implosion though. Visual Concepts also became a Sega studio. That's probably why a SNES version was never published.
Dominus was shown at the Winter 1993 CES. Nintendo Power states that it allowed you to control up to 500 different monsters.
