OilRush looks interesting, although its website causes my browser to chug for some reason. It’s a naval strategy game from Unigine, who I believe were previously a tech company trying to sell their own middleware. They’re now developing this game based on a water-world of the future, in which ships and aircraft battle for control of a series of oilrigs. I take it from the mention of “the Tower Wars genre” that there’s an element of tower defence in there too. There’s a nifty trailer out for it, which I’ve posted below, which demonstrates Unigine’s ability to have quite a lot of aircraft blowing each other up at the same time. It’s planned for a release later this year, and is possibly worth keeping an eye on. (And yes. Oops on the timing.)
