Post Oil Rush game
This looks like a nice strategy game: http://oilrush-game.com/media/videos/
Has anybody tried it? It's available in Ubuntu store, presumably it work on Debian-based distros...

Been running all through the beta cycle via pre-order license on M11 64bit and ATI GPU (see sig). It is a great game and very stable. The graphics are superb.

Thanks, I might get it, I really like strategy games, the only thing that's afraid is the video card is not going to be sufficient, it says minimum Nvidia 8600 and I have 8400... is there a way to get a free trial to see if it works before buying?

Doesn't look like there is a trial version...just the $19.95 download.

Got it, fun game, great graphics (taxing on my slow video card, tried it on a different computer that has better card and it works fine).

More than anything is nice to see computer games released on all the platforms...

EDIT: by the way, I tried it both on Ubuntu and Debian and 32 and 64 bit and it works fine (it's nice that they give you all the downloads when you buy the game, even for Windows and Mac)
