This is just a reminder that until next week Monday we are running a giveaway of a few copies of Unigine's forthcoming OilRush game, which features a native Linux client as well as support for Windows and Mac OS X. This contest is in celebration of Phoronix turning seven years old on Sunday.

Full details for the contest can be found in this news posting, but to enter the contest it's quite simple:

1. Follow @Phoronix on Twitter; the official Phoronix account where new articles and news items appear.
2. Follow @MichaelLarabel on Twitter; the feed where information about upcoming Phoronix stories, Linux notes, beer thoughts, Q&A with readers, and more is offered.
3. After following both accounts, then re-tweet: "@phoronix @michaellarabel are giving away the #Unigine #OilRush game http://goo.gl/BRJUs" (or anything to that effect; you're welcome to get more creative).

It's that easy; good luck. The winners (and those with pre-orders) get immediate access to the current beta client of the OilRush game while the official release will occur this summer. OilRush is a real-time strategy game built atop the very impressive Unigine Engine, which features a stunning OpenGL renderer and first-rate Linux support. The Unigine Engine is currently our favorite (but proprietary) game engine on Linux at the moment.
