I preordered this game within an hour of the store page coming online. :D The price was a little disappointing though...I was fully prepared to pay $40-60.

Looks great, I'm not preordering it but I'll get it on release date ( I'm just that stingy ;) )

Unigine is a GREAT linux compatible engine! Oilrush will be a very good RTS.
