I'm going to be honest, for an asking price of $19.99 it really doesn't look like much. The vehicle graphics in particular look a bit bland. I'm trying to get a review copy to see what it's like, so I will post a more thorough piece if I can in future.

About the game
Enshrouded World is a vehicular combat game that features non-linear progression and survival elements not seen in the genre until now.

With the world suffering greatly from centuries of human destruction, an overpopulation crisis and the depletion of resources a mass migration to cryogenic storage facilities occurred where a supplementary virtual reality took the place of the appalling conditions on Earth.

Players assume the role of Jill, a botanist and member of an elite team tasked with managing the oxygen production for the millions of people in stasis. With artificially established urban centers complete the team prepares for the procedures in place to begin and those in stasis to disembark into a new world.

Sidenote: I've heard literally nothing about the Leadwerks game engine since they did the crowdfunding effort to support Linux with it. It did release for Linux, but news and hype surrounding it faded pretty quickly. Nice to see a game actually come out using it. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

TBH, this video doesn't make me want to take 20$ in my hand to get the game :o

"released" is certainly one way of putting it... well at least I got my $200 refunded

As for the game - well the trailer speak for it self.

If trailers are meant to sell a game, this video must not be a trailer.

They should have released the engine for free, and put some sort of royality on it if you game actually sells anything.

Not sure if leadworks is open-source, but to survive it would need to be!

This trailer looks like a 1998 game.

trailer indeed looks like 1998 game. Nothing that grabs me and its a gameplay trailer. those CGI Trailers never pump me up so i always what to see gameplay footage but this really looks bad. i thought leadwerks can do better than this but this seriously looks like some dosbox game

I'm just trying to figure out where the "About the game" story--a botanist managing oxygen production for people in stasis--turns into a vehicle combat game.
The actual trailer seems less like a game and more like one of those vaguely hypnotic pieces of video that are supposed to somehow make sense if you're high.

The lure of that game engine were precisely it's licensing model (that and the promise of having a professional tool native on linux, hah! ) - unlike most other commercial game engines at the time were there was a monthly, yearly or % fee. Here instead it's a onetime sum and your done, make for a more tidy budget which is important when you are an aspiring indie dev that has mouths to feed.

The game might look like a relic from the 90's.. but honestly so does the editor, it had that glorious windows 95 feel to it "will it crash in the next 15 seconds? who knows? will is destroy files at random with no warning while doing so? who knows?"

I don't want to be shallow and judge a game just by its trailer , but COME ON
I don't mind old looking graphics , I love older games, but this just looks ugly.
Also no real clue how that vehicular combat is supposed to work based on that.

Makes me think of that old game "Chrome".

This also looks exactly like someone just chucked a bunch of plug-in assets together using plug-in code.

The target audience appears to be for people with lobotomies.
