    Default The Oddest Game To Be Powered By Unigine

    Phoronix: The Oddest Game To Be Powered By Unigine

    When it comes to Unigine Corp and their first-class multi-platform game engine, as of late we've mostly been talking about them when it comes to their OilRush game, but there's more going on beyond just that. In fact, there's a small game now shipping that is powered by the Unigine Engine...

    The good about unigine is that even if games will be released without linux 'clients', wine will be able to run them without performance loss by using unigine opengl backend (?)

    What a disturbing little game... what the hell is that irritating popping sound whenever the main character is walking? It must be a "stepping" sound but it doesn't even correspond to the animation. And why are all the characters doing back-flips all the time? What's wrong with them?? And finally, what's the deal with that monkey-type creature following the main character all the time? It doesn't do anything! It just goes wherever the main character goes and stares at it... scary...

    I didn't like it, although I learned a lot about the art of cooking so it wasn't a total waste of time

    As of this morning, Unigine Corp has just sold 1429 pre-orders of their game, which has brought the company just a little over $24k USD.
    Yeah, everyone is gonna pre-order a game that is called "OilRush". Sounds so catchy. It's right up there with "SodaSweep" and "CoalMine."

    Oil Rush: Continuously promising/lying about release dates is highly annoying for game companies to do, especially for those who dared to pre-order this game from this unknown/untested/untrusted company.

    This game: There are tons of crapware games pumped out all the time that you will never hear about, and this looks like yet another one based on the seeming lack of anything interesting happening, but maybe I just don't have the whole picture. That, plus the constant loud walking sound, and the annoying follower constantly getting in the way with their body and massive question mark. Seriously, this game seems it could use some major, major overhauls in almost every department before it became a fun game, because walking around a city collecting coins and cards doesn't strike me as riveting. It's like Super Mario Galaxy, except with no platform gameplay to challenge you. In other words, if that's basically the extent to this game's gameplay, this is indeed going to be crapware.
