Final update on the Oil Blue (Greenlight)
The Oil Blue Greenlight Update
Description
Release date: Available now for PC!
"It just all looks fantastic - and the sound-scape backs the looks, dealing out a phenomenal mix of calming, watery melodies, with piano scales crashing along as the going gets a little tougher. Put this together with the engaging gameplay and it's sheer gaming bliss.

What I'm trying to tell you is this - I've had a huge amount of fun with The Oil Blue, and with good reason - it's challenging, it's gorgeous and it's by far the most unique experience I've played in a good while. This is something to officially 'be excited about' - I know I am." -Mike Rose, IndieGames.com

"The Oil Blue looks great, plays great, and will suck you in for hours at a time." -JayisGames.com

"...a rich and rewarding experience that’s really unlike any game out there." -About.com

“Games like The Oil Blue are always a pleasant surprise. We often expect nothing from them and they deliver an experience that is nothing sort of a joy. Vertigo games should be proud of what they’ve created here, and anyone interested in playing something great should check this out.” -Gamezebo

Game Summary

The Oil Blue is an indie action-sim that has you drilling for oil in the world's oceans, selling barrels of oil on the market, and exploring new islands once you completed objectives set by your employer, the United Oil of Oceania company. Set in the ocean in the near future, the world's dependency on oil has grown to an even larger amount. It’s up to you and a crew of men to travel the ocean, find abandoned oil drilling islands, and reclaim them for the United Oil of Oceana company.

Once you land on an island, you have a set amount of days and oil barrels to make during your stay. Fire up those old drilling machines and start making oil underwater, watch the oil barrel market and sell at the highest price, repair machines and do it all within the time you’re given…or the UOO will boot you off the island for a better crew. Sell more barrels to achieve higher ranks and perks, upgrade your machines, and conquer the ocean!

Good. Really surprisingly good. Really easy to learn, really simple to control, but at the same time, very difficult. The gameplay is a couple of minutes of absolute stress, followed by a long satisfied rest to the sounds of ocean crashing. Super fun. Also, for those who object to it on environmentalist grounds, it does not glorify oil, and the game does, in its own subtle way, show environmentalism as part of the game's world. Oil is portrayed as a decaying option, as people are increasingly desperate to find more of it out in the ocean. Try it; you won't regret it.
