Unigine Corp met their latest deadline and will officially be shipping the gold version of their Unigine OilRush real-time strategy game today for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows gamers.

OilRush is the first game coming out of Unigine Corp after their string of impressive multi-platform tech demos / benchmarks (Sanctuary, Tropics, Heaven) and licensing the stunning Unigine Engine to third-parties. While the Unigine Engine has been around for years to churn out stunningly beautiful visuals or slaughter your graphics card and computer system's performance (depending upon your hardware), this is one of the first major titles shipping en mass on the engine (first shipped was a Russian MMORPG in 2010 called Syndicates of Arkon).

OilRush was publicly announced in September of 2010 and has come a long way since then and the first time I had access to the game in December of that year.

By now if you've been reading Phoronix for any length of time you're already familiar with OilRush as it's been mentioned dozens of times in the past two years when talking about the Unigine Engine on Linux. This multi-platform real-time strategy game is self-described as a "Fight the naval war between furious armies across the boundless waters of the post-apocalyptic world. Pump the ever-so-precious black gold by oil rigs, capture platforms and destroy the enemy in the sea and in the air. Be ingenious to unlock super technologies and quick to send your squads straight into the heat of the battle!" It's also described as an RTS mixed with a tower defense-type game.

OilRush has a campaign mode, quick play mode, and supports multi-player over LAN and the Internet. Keeping many gamers happy, this game ships without any Digital Rights Management (DRM). The game is also available in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.
