Oil Rush is a real-time naval strategy game based on group control. It combines the strategic challenge of a classical RTS with the sheer fun of Tower Defence. 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!

So what are your post-release plans? There's the obvious look for feedback and fix bugs/balancing, but beyond that what are your plans? DLC maps? Expansion pack? A sequel? A new, different game?

Also, I think you should to put up your best video of the game on Steam.

Thank you for this amazing game. The graphics and the gameplay is fantastic. And the linux-support is fabulous. I hope the german translation comes very soon (via update). English is ok for me, but german is better. ;-)

got 64bit demo installed on desura and after making OilRush_64 an executable the game does launch, but fails to load.

I'm runing desura with optirun, since I've got laptop wooth Nvidia Optimus card (Dell L702x with Nvidia Geforce GT 555M).

So, when OilRush is loading, it fails with

"Loading "oilrush/config/sounds_weapon.prop" 61 properties 2ms
Game version: 1.12
Unigine~# world_load oilrush/menu menu
Socket s = new Socket();
oilrush/scripts/feedback/sender_impl_replays.h:255: ExternClass::get_constructor(): can't find constructor with 0 arguments"
