World War III hits the net

Demo for real-time strategy game released

European developer Zuxxez has released a demo of its latest real-time strategy game, World War III : Black Gold. Created by the brains behind Earth 2150 and the Moon Project and powered by what looks suspiciously like an updated version of the same impressive 3D graphics engine used by those games, World War III is set in a near future where oil reserves are running perilously low. The result is a global conflict between America, Russia and the Middle East as everyone fights over the remaining oil to keep their economy afloat.

The demo weighs in at an extravagant 130Mb, so if you're on an old analogue modem you might just be able to download it before the game is released this winter...
