"If you've ever wanted to play a video game based on Kevin Costner's Waterworld, only without Kevin Costner being anywhere near it, you should check out upcoming strategy title Oil Rush." - Kotaku
Fight the naval war between furious armies across the boundless waters of the post-apocalyptic world. Pump the ever-so-precious black gold by oil rigs, capture platforms and destroy the enemy in the sea and in the air. Be ingenious to unlock super technologies and quick to send your squads straight into the heat of the battle!
In a post-apocalyptic flooded world there are two things running short: oil and time. The last survivors in a desperate desire to seize control and dominate the enemy have started the naval warfare that turned the whole world into one large battlefield. In these harsh and cruel times, oil is thicker than blood.
Oil Rush is a real-time strategy game based on group control. It offers mechanics of a classical RTS combined with a Tower Defence genre: control the upgrade of production platforms as well as their defence forces, and send battle groups of naval and air units to capture enemy platforms and oil rigs.

It's definitely a fun game, though it lacks some lasting appeal. The singleplayer story is definitely worth one run and the multiplayer feels fresh by taking a slightly different approach than most RTS titles.
It's easy to control, but could definitely need a little more depth.

This is one of those gem's in the rough. I had a lot of fun with this, the sound and visuals are amazing for an indie dev, in fact your gpu will work harder than some AAA games.
You have almost full control over your units, the only downside for me was not easily being able to turn them around once you've sent them to a destination. But overall this has a story that relates to the real world and our obsession with oil.
The devs have their own forum where more people go to talk about the game, the steam forum is dead, likely from not having any marketing for this game at all. If this went on sale and more people realized how much fun this could be, alot more people would be talking about it.
I found it a bit short for the price, if they can double the number of maps in SP it would be a sweet deal.

Oil Rush was one of the first games announced with DX11, made by a Russian team who wants to show off his graphics engine, they created a well worth RTS game. The graphics are superb and you couldn't ask more for a game which costs 6€ and is as graphically awesome as Batllefield 3, but it is actually a really fun game. But, there are some cons, there could be more diversity with the units you control and more diversity in general. It has multiplayer online and lan and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes RTS games.
