Our First clue so far has been this screenshot:
Except "O" all the letters are obsecured but we can assume the games title will include 2 words a 5 letter one and an eight letter one.
From the looks of the space theme of the screenshot, it may very well be another shooter however extensive voice work is being recorded for the game and veteran voice actor David Micheal Williamson is one of the actors revealed to be lending his voice to the game.
Furthermore RSG is giving the community a chance to participate in the game:
"The voice recordings for our upcoming videogame have started. As a special service for our fans we are inviting them to a recording session on July 25th 2010 to the â€œBARBEQ-Soundâ€ studio in the south of Munich (Germany) where they can speak non-player characters and get credited in the game! If you are nearby or want to join the spreakers anyway (native US American English speaker, male or female, we can arrange something even if you can not come to Munich), write us an email to following address:

Given that Germany is several hours ahead of America, those intrested to send in their voices better rush.
Lastly and most importantly RSG have not annouced the platform this game is going to be on nonetheless all previous games from the publisher have been on the Dreamcast, let's hope nothing changes.

While the teaser does show beautiful CGI, it isn't enough to determine if it is pushing the quality of the system as Dreamcast has several gorgeous shooters, that play as good as they look (but their is a chance it may not be on DC).

DCEmu tryed probing RSG to confirm a Dreamcast release but were denied due to non disclosure agreements, nonetheless we're confident it has to be on Dreamcast otherwise RSG will have to face off with several angry DC fan boys.

We wish RSG the very best with future endeavors and hope they accomplish their goals with Solar Struggle.
We will not be reporting any further updates on Solar Struggle, unless it is related to Dreamcast.
