Planetary Annihilation is an RTS redefined for a new generation of players, promising Total Annihilation style gameplay on a planetary scale.

“It’s very exciting to put Planetary Annihilation in front of RTS gamers everywhere at such an early stage, ” said Jonathan Mavor, CTO of Uber Entertainment.  “We are burning with a passion to continue making these kinds of games and we can’t wait to see Planetary Annihilation reach its funding goal so we can bring it to life.”

Planetary Annihilation will be distributed and hosted on the UberNet digital publishing platform, developed by Uber. “UberNet enables Planetary Annihilation to host games of the most epic proportions. Our server technology makes it possible to have dozens of players with thousands of units in a single game,” says Uber’s CEO, Bob Berry.

Uber Entertainment is looking for crowdfunding ($900k) and has launched a kickstarter campaign to make it happen.
