Oil Rush on Steam for Linux

If you are a Linux user and happen to be a gamer at the same time, chances are you already know that Steam is now available for Linux. If not, it’s time to come out of that solitary confinement cell of yours. Steam was initially released as an invitation-only beta for Ubuntu 12.04 and greater back in November last year.

After getting a positive response from the Linux community and a heavy round of beta-testing, it was officially released to the public at large on 22nd Feb. Popular Valve games like Half-Life, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Counter Strike and Team Fortress 2 have already been ported to Linux (TF2 being free to play), with ports of more Valve games in the process. But, as one would expect, the number of game titles on offer for Linux is still limited.

Adding to the list of quality Steam Linux games comes an Indie strategy game Oil Rush. If you are a fan of the strategy genre and have a liking for eye-candy graphics, try this one out.

“Oil Rush is a naval strategy game that takes place in a world where nuclear war has melted the ice caps, changing the face of the planet forever. Oil Rush offers unique gameplay, avoiding micromanagement of every single unit, while still providing full control over all important aspects of strategy and economy.”

Oil Rush on Steam for Linux

Also, in recent updates and change for Oil Rush 1.34:

  • The engine is switched to OpenGL core profile instead of compatibility one (better Mac OS X support, non-compatible with open source Linux drivers for now).
  • Added launch options configurator for Steam.
  • Improved German localization.
  • Fixed controls under Linux with gamepad connected.
  • Fixed a lot of minor bugs.

As of this writing, Linux support for Oil Rush is not mentioned on the Steam website, but you can grab it from Steam client itself.

Indie Royale’s – the Fall Bundle with TWO games for Linux

It’s here!! The Fall Bundle from Indie Royale. Oddly enough, this time there are TWO games that support Linux, Oil Rush (Deluxe edition) and Reprisal. Both come with their own Official Soundtrack and obviously all games are issued with a Desura key and Steam keys (except for Reprisal which runs on Adobe AIR). Having purchsed the bundle, I was keen to see if Reprisal worked in Linux without any issue. As you know, Adobe no longer supports the Linux edition of AIR, so I was taken back when I saw the game working without effort, and rather well.
The remaining games, To the MoonBlackwell Deception, and AVSEQ I have yet to play.
So if anyone gets them running in WINE, by means drop a comment and let me know about your experience.

Without further ado… The Fall Bundle….


Leaves are falling and the weather is cooling – Fall is here! It’s a great reason to offer you five great indie games in the Fall Bundle from Indie Royale! This compelling bundle is led by hit RPG To the Moon, along with the graphically gorgeous Oil Rush and critically acclaimed adventure Blackwell Deception, not to mention other great titles too! With deals like this, who cares if it’s getting dark earlier since that’s even more reason to stay in side and play these great indie games!

The first game in this seasonal bundle is RPG/sci-fi adventure game from Freebird Games To the Moon (Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free). Adventure Gamers celebrates To the Moon for offering “(a)n incredibly moving narrative with a unique premise, sympathetic characters, and a powerful climax.”

Also included is challenging RTS/Tower Defense game Oil Rush from Unigine (Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free); standout adventure game from Wadjet Eye Games Blackwell Deception (Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free); audio-visual sequencer/color-matching puzzler AVSEQ from Big Robot (Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free); and Populous-inspired RTS Reprisal from Reprisaluniverse (Windows, Mac and Linux on Desura and DRM-Free).

To the Moon | by Freebird Games

Oil Rush | by Unigine Corp

Blackwell Deception | by Wadjet Eye Games

AVSEQ | by Big Robot

Reprisal | by reprisaluniverse

And for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Fall Bundle will get a great fantasy electro 8-bit album from Makeup and Vanity Set: ‘88:88’, inspired by the short film 88:88 directed by Joey Ciccoline.

You can find more information on the Fall Bundle at their official blog or via ourFacebook and Twitter pages. And remember, you’ll want to get in early while the prices are still low (unless kind purchasers lower the price) so you can get in on this Fall Bundle before it’s gone!

5 Must Have Linux Games

Gaming on Linux? This might have been a foreign concept on this system many years ago but today it is possible. The system has evolved in such a way that there are now high quality games that you can play with. Let’s take a look at 5 of the best Linux based games that you should try.

Oil Rush

– Real Time Strategy
– $19.99

I know that there are lots of gamers who love RTS style games. Oil Rush is a naval strategy game that combines elements of RTS as well as tower defense. It has amazing graphics and offers an enjoyable gameplay.

Flight Gear

– Simulation
– Free

There aren’t a lot of good flight simulator games for the Linux platform unlike for Windows. Thank god that Flight Gear is available. The developers of this open source simulation don’t consider it a game because of its realism.

Heroes of Newerth

– Free

The success of DoTA ( a popular mod of Warcraft III) has made HoN equally popular today. This RPG game that offers a similar gameplay experience to DoTA has rich graphics and is fully Linux compatible.


– Free

This is an entertaining MMORPG that’s currently available for the Linux platform. There are 4 different character classes to choose from. The gameplay is set in the world of Wakfu that has four unique nations. The adventure begins when you evolve your character and socialize with other players.


– Free

This first person shooter closely resembles Nexuiz. This might be because the former developers of Nexuiz are the ones who created this game. It offers fast paced action and uses the latest Quake engine called DarkPlaces. This game is definitely the best FPS so far in the Linux platform.
