Build Robots, Smash Planets: Planetary Annihilation Kickstarter

August 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

The guys at Uber Entertainment just launched their Kickstarter for Planetary Annihilation, an RTS game inspired by the late 90s game Total Annihilation. They’re using the “buncha guys who worked on a buncha famous stuff before” pitch tactic along with some pre-rendered “gameplay visualisation” footage.

If the final product is anything near what is shown in the pitch video, this might turn out to be rather good. To quote “We’re not aiming for realistic, we’re aiming for awesome”. The only reservation I have about this one though is the massive $900,000 they are trying to raise. They also gave no indication of what stage of development this is currently in, or any of the stretch goals. And my own personal gripe, which I suppose is not a huge deal for most – no Linux port, but don’t mind me, I’m just a  passive-aggressive neckbeard. Pitch vid embedded for your convenience after the break.
