    Default A New Video Highlighting Unigine's OilRush Game

    Phoronix: A New Video Highlighting Unigine's OilRush Game

    Two weeks back we published an exclusive preview of Unigine's OilRush as we happen to have access to the internal builds of this upcoming multi-platform, real-time strategy game. Besides that preview article where plenty of screenshots can be found, we also recorded a quick video of this oil-themed game. Now though Unigine Corp has put out a much longer (12 minutes) video that goes over this visually-intense game that will premiere with a native Linux client...

    I've added subtitles to the video (see "Transcript" feature on YouTube)

    Looks like it turned out pretty good. From what I can see, the mechanics seem to be sound. I hope it's fun to play.

    Some small items show in there, like boats going through icebergs and planes flying weird, but otherwise it's looking rather good.

    The game environment looks beautiful, the HUD needs some work to compliment it better but for this early in development the demo is very impressive technically.

    The game looks very simplistic with regards to base building which I quite like, Ground Control is hands down one of the best RTS games ever and it completely cut that bit out.

    I hate to say it but the game concept as a whole seems some what boring and poorly contrived. I suspect the game will shine for multiplayer. To me it feels like Quake 3 when I wanted Half-Life. The Unigine guys are great and I am very pleased to see that they invest so heavily in gaming on Linux, they are however clearly engine guys though and not storytellers. It is still early though and they tend to be good at surprising me so time will tell if this game becomes a classic for other reasons than Linux gamers buying millions (HIB afterglow.. I'm allowed to optimism for a bit)

    Hopefully they will start taking pre-orders soon. Between OilRush and Achron, I think I might finally have some good RTS fun which I haven't in a decades time.
