'Planetary Annihilation' Kickstarter Campaign Successful

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

Planetary Annihilation’s rendering engine is brought to you by the team that developed the rendering engines for Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander. Uber Entertainment's engine will allow you to explore vast, new procedural worlds with diverse terrain and build on everything from small, airless rocks to huge earth-type planets. No two maps are exactly alike.

Other than Total Annihilation, which was asynchronous, most Real-Time Strategy games use a synchronous networking model, which means that all the computers in a given game are held back by the slowest machine. The Planetary Annihilation engine uses a client-server model so that the “heavy lifting” can be done on a game server, freeing up gamers’ machines to engage in bigger battles with more players!

Create new units, gametypes, maps and planet archetypes.  Run your own servers with your own sets of units and game modes.

Uber Entertainment Planetary Annihilation kickstarter campaign has blown past it's $900,000 funding goal in just over two weeks with 15 days left.

Fan can still donate as additional funding goals have been set, allowing the developers to add more content such as water planet, naval units, gas giants and enhanced orbital units.

Key Features:

  • A solar system is your playground: Expand your empire to harness the resources of entire solar systems to create vast armies with which to annihilate enemy planets, destroy rival systems, and win the Galactic War!
  • Pick Your Battles: Play a quick skirmish with a friend on a single planet map with a low unit cap or a 12+ hour game with 40 of your closest frenemies and thousands of units. You can also hone your skills against Planetary Annihilation’s AI or team up with a friend against multiple AI’s.
  • Advanced Command and Control: Planetary Annihilation’s order queuing interface allows you to control massive armies spread across multiple worlds with ease. Get strategic views of the action anywhere, anytime by zooming in and out of the war zone, and use split interfaces and multiple windows to keep an eye on multiple battlegrounds at once.
  • Procedural Planet Creator: Create custom or randomized maps with our procedural planet creator. Like what you see? Save them and share them with the Planetary Annihilation community.
  • Streaming Resource Economy: Use resources to build mega projects. Assign swarms of construction units in realtime to manage your economy. Reclaim wreckage and terrain to quickly regroup after a battle.
