This game was advertised as "Supremacy - Your will be done" in European/Australasian markets, and "Overlord" in America. Some versions came with a free color poster of featuring original box cover artwork.
Although it was not revolutionary in terms of gameplay, Supremacy/Overlord was revolutionary in terms of its presentation. It was the first space empire-building game to have striking visuals, and it boasted a graphical (rather than text-based) interface
A year or two after being released for the PC (and also a few other computer platforms), Supremacy/Overlord resurfaced in a slightly modified form as Overlord for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). The detailed troop organization and management aspect was replaced with arcade-like, real-time combat sequences.
