    Just in time for the weekend, the Russian developers at Unigine Corp have released a new (and impressive) trailer of their OilRush game with native clients for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows...

    Made me lauf. Had to watch the trailer in Minitube to get the sound working. Ahhh that's good ol' ALSA for ya.

    I'll be buying this game and Overgrowth for that matter. Hint... How do AAA/ bigger developers know that a Linux gamer market even exists?

    Well, I'm going to buy it as soon as it comes out for Linux. It looks like fun, and 20 dollars is peanuts.

    sure a small company can build a AAA title like OFP or ARMA2 ;-)
    ARMA2 is flashpoint clone? looks worse than some open source games, actually. Setting is terrible. Why not WW3, why they ressurect USSR's corpse? Flashpoint was good, but that local conflicts are just booooring. I had never finished this kind of games

    Yeah, to be clear

    I'm not buying the game. It seems to me like Unigine is really only interested in using the game to market their game engine, rather than in becoming a real game company. So it's no surprise that the game isn't exactly blowing anyone's socks off.

    But complaining that the game isn't as good as Starcraft and that's the minimum required to get your money? 99.999% of Windows games don't measure up to that standard. And certainly no indie game for a $15 price ever has.

    This is meant to be a tower defense game anyway. So you should be comparing it to something like Plants vs Zombies, not Starcraft.

    I would not pay 20$ for such a small only online available game - 5$ would be more than enough. The biggest drawback is that you can not even test it without paying the full price. Unigine calls it "pre-order", but selling alpha/beta versions is no good style in my opinion. When the user has to hack the game first to get it running on a recent system after paying for it then something is going completely wrong. One other thing is that i usally like to get boxes, i collect (single player) id games for example - also unreal games. If there is a Linux client out there i get it sooner otherwise later, but always i get something i can put into my shelf. As long as the game does not require online activation it definitely feels better to be able to sell it if needed.

    The game IS indie

    They are a small company, not someone who can afford to create a AAA title.
