Om spillet

An American geological expedition, under a UN mandate, assesses the natural resources in a distant part of Siberia, deep in the trackless steppes of Eastern Russia. But instead of oil, they discover a deposit of a hitherto unknown mineral.

American scientists working for Department of Defense find out that this mineral is in fact identical to the substance used to power an extraterrestrial artifact in their possession. This object is called the EON (Extraterrestrial Object Nexus).

It was found in 1919 by Colonel Emerson near the site of the Tunguska explosion. Emerson was the commander of a US military unit in charge of transporting US war supplies from the city of Vladivostok to the Eastern front during World War I.

DoD Experiments have shown that items placed in the capsule are transported hundreds of thousands of years back in time. The American scientists were not able to understand its construction, nor could they manage to synthesize its fuel. Eventually, the machine - classified Top Secret - was stored, pending further advances in human science.

An old game has finally being re-enter the gaming stage!

I remember this game as my first PC game ever, I still enyoj it! even though I by mistake destoyed my dics version by breaking it in half, I fell happy that the game can once again be played, and also that it has been keep alive by a fan based group of people!

This game has one of the best Real Time Strategi, that not many games today poses! You have to keep your men alive since they will be crucial for further decisions, your decisions will have effect on the future in that world.. killing a prisoner og releasing him, can decide the fate of your campaign or mission.

I recommend this for people who like a history RTS style, where YOUR decisions mean something.. the gameplay is very much better for that time of release but stil a good game today.. its like a roleplay in some very aspect since you will be following a person, and decide his fate..

I am sorry for missing decription, but iam sure others will give you a better review! :D

I still have the boxset from this game in my closet since 2002ish. This game is pure awesome. Don't let its retro looks fool you.


Its something along the vibes of jagged alliance. you get character progression and permadeath. Most of the main characters have their own lines and personalities written for throughout the entire campaign; i always tried to keep em alive just for that ;D

other than that, the storyline, while slightly convoluted, simply serves as a backdrop for a great rts/rpg game where you manage not only your resources, but your human resources as well. 4 Character classes where your characters can switch between and gain experience in during missions carry out specific tasks, where soldiers fight, scientists do research and heal people up, engineers start buildings and collect resources, and mechanics drive and build vehicles.

Decisions you make within each mission affect subsequent missions. Somewhere down the line you will be forced to make one which will split your campagin progress into two trees. *spoiler :D*

I really loved the vehicle design in this game, where you slowly overtime research and unlock modules to provide more options for modular vehicle construction. Gun+Chassis+Power source+ wheels/tracks is awesome. I like the really distinctive look of the double gun cars. <3


all in all, this game is worth my 20 bucks then, and the 5 bucks now. buy it. you wont be disappointed.

Two words: BUY IT!

Its old, and forgotten by their developers, but ist great anyway. It has all what good RTS game should have:
- Unique story, never seen anything similar in other RTS games
- Unique resorces gathering system (not seen in any other games, and still fits 100% to the story)
- Unique crew management (loosing man in first mission, can make others harder up to the last one, cause crew advance with you, crew members are limited, no respawn, no training units, permadeath)
- Crew has skills (and they train them on mission, and as reward for good mission score)
- Three factions quite balanced even while having different units, and different technologies
- Modular vehicle construction (you choose vehicle type, engine type, weapon type, and steering type)

I played this game when it came out 13 years ago - still having box version, and playing from time to time. Today I saw it on steam and bought it without even small doubt.

P.S. To STEAM crew. Why its marked as "indie"? Its made by Altair Interactive ( now called Altar Games )-> the same that made UFO;Afterlight, UFO:Aftermatch etc. Its also beeing published by Bohemia Interactive (Arma game series, Operation Flashpoint, Take on Helicopters). Its not indie...

Original War is certainly a product if its time. It was very quietly developed in the waning days of RTS popularity and developers were first trying to do something a little different. It is the quinessential "Gem" for any fans of the genre. The art style is unique and clever, fantastic music and the concept was innovative. You don't train new men in the traditional sense; you have a finite amount of men, and you can build vehicles part by part (chassis, turret, fuel source) and train local fauna (aka cavemen) to join your cause. Each of your men (and women) have a name, and stats, and a specialty. You can change their roles as a match goes on (sniper, infantry, medic etc...) to suit your needs. In campaign mode, survivors of each battle with gain XP and "lvl up". Having an RTS with RPG elements back in 2001 was something special, but I'm not sure this game is for everyone TODAY. I think if you're a die-hard fan of the RTS genre, this is a great pick! Even if you're a fan of retro PC gaming in general, go for it. If you're looking for a Starcraft killer, move right along.

Don't get fooled by the playtime I have in steam.


This is easily one of the best and most innovative RTS games out there.
If you like RTS and Oldschool this is definately something for you.

Thanks to 2D instead of 3D graphics the game look quite okay compared to 3D games at that time.


The music is alright and always nice to listen to.

There is an editor with the ability to script (Pascal-like language) coming with the game and an alive community over at owsupport.com.

The campaign offers for 10-30 hours of time, depending on skill and difficulty setting and offers quite an interesting storyline with not too monotone objectives.

Apart from that, there is the multiplayer which may not have too many players in it, but it is still functioning and offers around 15 maps with different gamemodes ranging for regular 1v1 build base battle each other to 2v2 with a twist of disappearing and respawning units up to 3v3 rampage and 4v4/2v2v2v2 battles. I personally enjoy the way the game handles base building and unit management a lot.

The catch with this RTS is that you can't train units. You need 5 soldiers to attack the enemy? You can't train them like that. You start with a certain amount of people and those you have to stick with. You can't just say "5 soldiers plz" and your barracks will poop out 5 people. That doesn't work here.

Some maps/campaign missions have some sort of unit spawn, but in MP it can be selected and in SP it's doesn't make you OP.
You can train apes or make Computer or remote controlled vehicles to prevent loss of actual soldiers, which adds a really nice touch to the game and is a nice alternative to regular RTS games.



I think everyone should give this game a try, it's one of my most favorite RTS games ever and I can only urge you to consider buying it, especially at such a low price.
