    Phoronix: Screenshots Of The New Unigine-Based Linux Game

    This morning we reported that another Linux game was announced and it's using the Unigine Engine. While not too many details are known yet about this fantasy role playing game (RPG), Dilogus: The Winds of War, we do have some screenshots to now share...

    These aren't screenshots. They're concept art.

    Completely and utterly different things.

    These aren't even guaranteed to be used for the final game. Concept art is usually generated in massive quantities, the "best" items in terms of both quality and feasibility are selected, and then initial content is built from those. That content is then further refined and cut based on quality (fun factor) and feasibility.

      A fantasy RPG on Linux with decent graphics?

      A tear came to my eye.

      OMG, this week is to hard for my linux gamer heart.

        That's concept art, it doesn't actually show the game's graphics.

          Good screenshots but it's not Unigine engine - they are rendered offline in some visualization application like 3DS Max/Maya/something else.

                  The stuff on the Digital Arrow page is actually screenshots from way back, when this was a Crytek mod. The stuff on the Dilogus page itself is just concept art.

                  And those screenshots on the Digital Arrow page are straight from the engine, no Maya.

                    Have they taken those images down? http://www.indiedb.com/company/digital-arrow/images just gives me:

                    We're sorry, but no images were found in the gallery requested.

                      Hello there.

                      The new images released recently, are concept art. However, the images that were up in the Digital Arrow profile gallery were images from the old Crysis mod days - but we had to remove them due the fact that we are now a standalone game on Unigine. We had to do this to ensure there is no clash between us and Crytek.

                      Hope this clears up things.

                      We are soon going to showcase content straight from Unigine. I cannot give an exact ETA, but I can tell it's going to be soon.

                      Also, thank You all for the kind words, you are awesome!

                        My first impression: you guys seem to have artistic talent and just got some awesome tools to flesh it out... Grats on the licence (and thanks Unigine!).
                        I'm gonna follow that project

                          Don't worry, it's not screenshots we're waiting to spend money on
                          Best of luck to you guys, we're really short on good RPGs these days.

                            I'm impressed by the art. If the whole game measures up to this, it will be really fantastic!

                            I would love to have a cooperative multiplayer RPG. The last good one for Linux is Neverwinter Nights, which is a great game, but definitely showing its age.

                              That first screenshot has an incredible depth and eeriness and atmosphere to it. Playing this on my widescreen in the dark would be absolutely enthralling. If you guys work very hard to capture that kind of atmosphere in the actual game, you might even produce something that can challenge the likes of Bioware's Mass Effect 1 and 2, which to date are my favorite games of all time.

                              I wish you guys the best of luck, and I'll be eager to play your game using the Catalyst Linux drivers on OpenSUSE, so please test many combinations of hardware, distros, and drivers
