    Phoronix: New Screenshots Of Unigine's OilRush Game

    At the start of September we reported on Unigine's OilRush game, which will have a native Linux client and really be the first title to make its debut that's powered by this advanced OpenGL (and DirectX) engine (after Primal Carnage abandoned Unigine) that up until now has just really been seen by gamers and consumers with some amazing tech demos. The OilRush game is still expected to be released this quarter, but some new screenshots for now are available...

      I'm really wondering how this game will play out though. I hope there will be a demo.........

      I'm hoping this won't play out like a C&C game in tactics and logistics (base building, tiers, etc). If anything, I hope it will follow the style of Supreme Commander, at least in scale of battles.

      Still excited about a real native Linux game! We haven't had one of these in a while.

          I hope that too, but I also have a wish for a state of the art C&C like game for Linux.

              If Unigine wants to compete though they'll have to change the name. "Oil Rush" isn't something that would make gamers click on a link to find out what this is. The name is closer to "Minesweeper" than "Warcraft."

                Yep, the name sucks. And the theme doesn't feel much apealing either. Building and capuring oil rigs is the main purpose? That doesn't sound too exciting. And WATER fills the entire surface of the WORLD and there are battles involving boats to take control of the platforms? Where in the 1990's have I seen that before? The graphics look awesome though.

                  If you don't like the name or the Theme why don't you make your own Linux game?
                  I think it looks awesome! I can't wait to buy it when it comes out.

                    Did you ever hear the words "suggestion" and "feedback"? Care to explain how would making his own game would help Unigine's one cater to more people?

                      Its pointless criticism.
                      Come on who really gives a shit about a game's name?
                      when did that stop any one from buying a good game?
                      "Well I didn't buy it because I didn't like the name."
                      No one cares who they cater too. Make a good game and people will buy it regardless of the platform in fact they may actually change platforms to play the new game!

                        There's already a high quality C&C like game in Linux, spring-rts. (Built to mimic the best RTS ever release - Total Annihilation).

                        Back to the sibject, anyone knows what the planned release date? This game is definitely on my shopping list.

                          One thing that i noticed with the Unigine engine: it does NOT use multihreading - which i think is even more problematic with consoles when only 1 core is used. It likes pure raw speed but only 1 core... When will that change?

                            Unigine engine is multi-threaded, all of the CPU cores are used on PS3 as well.

                              Was not visable when i compared results from i5-680 vs. i7-880. How many cores are used?
