Unigine has just rolled out a new beta build for their real-time naval strategy game, Oil Rush, which combines the strategic challenge of a classical RTS with the sheer fun of Tower Defence. One of the major changes in the latest beta version of Oil Rush is the addition of Steam support. This basically means that the game will be available on Steam very soon, after the official publishing.
Those interested in getting access to the beta can pre-order the game for $19.95 USD.

-Added Steam support (lobby, matchmaking, game sessions, achievements). The game will be available on Steam very soon, after the official publishing.

-Increased targeting module speed.
-Fixed a bug with mirage objects inside the fog of war.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
