    Phoronix: An Exclusive Preview Of Unigine's OilRush Game

    At the beginning of September there was the announcement from Unigine Corp that they were going to be releasing their first in-house game known as OilRush. The Unigine Engine has been in development for more than five years and has powered some very impressive technology demos / benchmarks, but has not really been utilized in many games yet. There's some games coming atop this engine (including those that won their game development competition), but OilRush is really the first game to set the stage for Unigine on PC, Linux, and PlayStation 3 platforms. OilRush is being released in March of 2011, but we have secured an internal development build of this strategy game to offer you the very first and exclusive preview with a number of screenshots.

        The entire map being based on a reflective/refractive water base would alone steal many fps away

          If it gets released, I wonder what kind of DRM protection it'll have. I suppose no one wants per 90 days reactivation or activation based on hardware configuration.

          And call me pessimistic but screenshots are rather unimpressive. Everything looks plastic, and there are no little details to be spotted.

            I don't know what was the problem with Michael's test system, but I have 25-30 FPS on my old GeForce 9600 GT / Core 2 Duo 2.6 GHz in real battles with hundreds of units fighting. Linux, proprietary NVIDIA driver.

                  You could read the article before commenting and see that no DRM will be used..

                      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 ;-)
