Over dit spel

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.

Damn good, original RTS with a bizarre and very unique plot/setting, with good writing and hammy voice acting. Old school, top down 2d sprites, just like I like it. Plenty of fan campaigns, and is still being supported (hence this fan release). Just buy it.

Amazing underestimated game with great sense of humor. Dont get mistaken by screenshots, its not like Starcraft. It's Basically RTS with RPG elements. Great campaign that gives you both points of view for the entire story. Sadly because of the crappy publisher there is no expansion that was originaly planned for this game.

This is a brilliant game, the title says it all. Very original. New strategy games could learn from abosulte gems like this. I have had this game on disk for many years and have replayed it many times.

The Campaign stories are very captivating, and again highly original, and really drives the missions. The excellent and immersive character relations are superb, ranging from the very sad to the very ridiculous with excellent humour all along the way. I got very attached to some of the characters in-game and that connection really affected my gameplay.

The strategy is very involved, and the gameplay can be insanely difficult at times but it just dosn't seem to matter becasue its such fun, even to replay over and over.

I most definitley recommend this awesome game, there needs to be more like it. For some reason it never seemed to get the acclaim it so rightly deserved, and its great to see a comminity on steam that support it.

For a measly £3-99 you can't go wrong, immerse yourself in the querky superbness that is Original War. :)

One of the best games I've ever played! I know that game since years, bought it a few weeks ago, and I play it know the I-don't-know-how-often time :D. Well, it's the first time with that Steam-Account, but like I said, I know that game since years and played it really often. The only one RTS I've played is Command & Conquer.

So for all, who thinks about it: Buy it!!!! It's worth it, really!

Very addictive and original RTS mixed with RPG elements. This game is like a return to my childhood. I've spent many hours playing this game because of the unique gameplay and great story.

You cannot just spawn more soldiers, you have to do whatever is necessary with what you have and keep your units alive for your own good. Every single one has unique personality and once they're dead, they cannot return. There are resources randomly spawning across the map and sometimes you have to fight for every supply you need.

There are two official campaigns where you play as Americans or Russians. You'll also face mercenaries led by Arabs who were also meant to have a campaign but unfortunately it was cancelled (there is a fan made campaign "The Arabian Campaign" which perfectly fills the hole though).

Your units can change their job during a mission. They can become a soldier, engineer, mechanic or a scientist. They keep getting better and better at their job and it's up to you to make them even better. You also assemble vehicles and turrets which can be controlled by your soldiers or just make them fully automatic.

Also I live in Czech Republic, the country where this game was developed and the Czech voice acting is just perfect. Many people say the English one is not very good but that still doesn't ruin the great experience.

+ Story
+ Truly "original"
+ Multiple in-game choices
+ Three playable factions
+ Exploding apes riding a vehicle

- Not very known game (only a few multiplayer matches)

First, let me say that I've played many an hour of this game before it was released on Steam and so I can tell that if there ever was a great mixture of base-bulding tactical RTS with RPG elements, OWar is it. The limiting factor of your primary resources (building material and people themselves) which contrasts with the ability to recycle and train "natives" (apemen)/build AI war machines and all this combined with usually limited space of your base which you have to upgrade in certain way presents a very interesting decision-making tactical situation. Add a very interesting and thought-out storyline with different timelines as a result of the time travel and you have a great unorthodox game.
You will want to know what happens next, you will want to know how your decision affects the outcome and you will want to branch out in the campaign to know what would have happened if you made a different decision. The game also offers tactical options, such as units with greater range then they can see, visibility obstructing terrain, including trees, higher ground granting firing range bonus. The soundtrack is also good and nicely themed - the sort of "lumberjack style" for US and the typical tunes "Siberia style" (as we nicknamed them with friends) for Soviets. Speaking of soviets, you will look forward for any communication with your superiors or cutscenes - all great jabs at the party propaganda and way of thinking.
A great older game, RTS where a second here or there is not important, you actually want to carefully plan and execute.

Message for Czech players about dubbing: Hra je i v češtině, ale jen titulky. Dabing je celý v Angličtině, takže pokud jste OWar dříve hráli a těšili se na parádní české nadabování, bohužel.

A stellar, beautiful classic. Featuring some of the more unique gameplay, it's an absolute beast to play. The fact it outlived its developer says a lot about it as a whole. I recommend it to everyone who wants to enjoy some oldschool, non-linear gameplay as well as meet an outstanding, everlasting and welcoming community that continues keeping the game alive through a multitude of mods and custom campaigns further enhancing the game.

5/5 This game is worth any price.

I'm a few missions and 5 hours in and I must say, this game lives up to all the talk about it being a hidden gem and an unsung masterpiece.

It's a great rts/rpg that has a very different feel than other rts. You cannot create different soldiers, you can only use the ones you've got (and some you can find scattered throughout certain maps) This means you have to treat each life as vital.

You change jobs at different buildings, choosing from soldier, engineer, mechanic, scientist. Each jobs allows the unit to perform different tasks. Scientists heal and research upgrades and can spot and mark oil. Engineers pick up the shipments of crates that are sent back from the future and build buildings. Mechanics can work in the workshop (or whatever the vehicle and turret gun creating building is called) to create vehicles, guns for turrets and they also repair and drive vehicles (each class can drive vehicles and perform based on their mechanic skill.)

All this adds up to quite an enjoyable game. It also includes a pause feature that allows one to stop the action and give complex sets of orders which is certainly noteworthy and unique in thie genre.

I caught it on sale for a buck and it's not too expenisve otherwise. If you catch it on sale, it's a must have and if you're open to the universe worth of gaming that opens up to you when you look past graphics and release dates it's a must get all the time.

Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

An excellent and original RTS game, yet very underappreciated. The limited number of personnel per mission makes for a challenging match (whether campaign or multiplayer) and the 2,000,000 BC setting is cool with prehistoric forests, local fauna and limited resources. Definitley worth grabbing a copy but unfortunately multiplayer matches are non-existent and there is no skirmish mode so unless you have a group of friends to play with you'll be sticking to the campaign. Workshop mods add some extra playability with some neat singleplayer missions.

For a long time I was searching for the game I remembered like "the war strategy game with czech language".
I was kid when I played demo and had even dreams about I can get into new missions.
Now I can play it whenever I would like to, I was so happy about buying this!
