Doug Lombardi on PS3 Portal 2, Steam on 360

A short but sweet article by Ars Technica.

The Oil Blue

I may have been released at an inappropriate time, but this game is a fantastic indie title.

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.

$14.95, with a free demo available.
