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!

Oil Rush development is full steam ahead to Steam! A lot of fixes, new improvements. Check new music tracks that will drag you even deeper into post-apocalyptic atmosphere of this flooded world.

Posted by binstream on Oct 13th, 2011

Our development studio is like a boiling kettle right now: everybody is so excited as the things are going towards the release at fast pace.

Changes from 0.80:

  • Added Steam support (lobby, matchmaking, game sessions, achievements). The game will be available on Steam very soon, after the official publishing.
  • Added 3 new atmospheric music tracks.
  • Fixed "Follow the fleet" feature (activated by pressing "F" after issuing an order).
  • Increased targeting module speed.
  • Fixed a bug with mirage objects inside the fog of war.
  • Improved fragments and shatters left when units/towers are destroyed.
  • Fixed unit flickering on the minimap.

What's next?

Flooded canyons of wild west

  • Our game designers are back from vacations so there will be a lot of new maps soon!
  • New environment: flooded canyons of the wild west.
  • Single player campaign is full speed ahead (but it will be kept locked in beta builds until the release).
  • We plan to release OST in high quality for free for all pre-order users.
  • There will be a play-test in our studio this Saturday, we are eager to see new gamers playing Oil Rush!

Stay tuned, more to come!

No, we need gamers who aren't acquainted with the game.

Throw a cookie out when you release on Steam and I'll bite. The game looks interesting from the couple of videos you have up. It's reminiscent of the flash game Phage Wars and the indie game Eufloria.

I really hope that there will be a good modding scene turning the game into a long-living game like Empire at War. The graphics are awesome, I can't wait for modifications turning the game into some World in Conflict or Command and Conquer-style universe. Great great work!

Nice update guys. Played the beta at a LAN with a small number of people. Good fun. Would be really great to have some more maps and a few 6 & 8 player maps.
