    We need to see videos, not screenshots to be able to judge the graphics quality. The problem is, major studios usually photoshop their screenshots to add some blur before releasing them. I'm glad michael didn't do that!

    When I look at Unigine videos, it is stunning of realism. When I see a screenshot, I feel more like "it's ok". This is the same with other games: http://images.totalgamingnetwork.com...screenshot.jpg (ID Software, rage).

      He is using Ubuntu, which has low kernel frequency, among other things.

      Also, it seems as if he's using compiz...

        We NEVER edit screenshots, it's strictly forbidden in our studio. However videos give more without a doubt. I hope we'll record some gameplay videos next week and upload them on youtube.

          binstream: I know, that's what I meant but in an offensive way (implying you are not a major studio).

          I'm looking forward to seeing a nice HD video (if possible).

          Anyway, keep the good work up You're doing wonders on our Linux computers!

            Would it be possible to upload an unedited HD video on a free sharing site (Youtube HD = worse than DVD quality...), even a very short one?

            Also, could you tell us if it's possible to switch back and forth to the desktop when OilRush is in fullscreen mode (either with ALT-TAB or better by sending keys like F1-F4 to the DE, which I set to each of my virtual desktops)? When in windowed mode, do you capture the mouse like Aquaria with no possibility to access other windows, or is it like World of Goo when you can still check your emails & IRC without having to exit the game?

            @d2kx : same here, the game looks like it's in such great shape already, and with beta access... Plus it's the kind of game I'm sure I'm going to play too much ;-)

              Personally I don't care about graphics, I care about games.
              And with games I mean gameplay, heck I love to play Railroad Tycoon 2, Stronghold 1, Doom II etc. occasionally.

              So what is important to me: Does it make fun?

                This is looking increasingly interesting, hoping for a multiplayer demo!

                  Can you suggest one?

                  Windowed mode doesn't grab your mouse, you can still use other applications. Alt+Tab works in Windows, but we still haven't implemented it in Linux because there is way too much different DEs with different key bindings.

                    I must say that your game looks awesome. I will definitely buy this title.

                      Please just make sure the game scales well with 4 or more cores. That would be a great bonus for those of us with lesser gpus, but still interested in this game.
