Annihilating Planets
« on: September 01, 2012, 10:50:58 PM »
I just came across this, and it seems to me that it bears the potential to be an entire new kind of awesome.

So, Planetary Annihilation, a spiritual successor to Total Annihilation, the greatest RTS game ever made, is being kickstarted, and it looks amazing.  Let me put this in perspective for you.  You can land on a planet and wage war with sci-fi machines, then abandon the planet for its moon, capture asteroids, put big, honkin' engines on them, and BOMBARD THE PLANET WITH ASTEROIDS until it dies a fiery death, along with all of your enemies on its surface.  That is an entirely new level of awesome. 

I've backed the game, so I'll get it when it comes out.  I'm more than a little excited.
God Bless

Heard about this from the PC Gamer podcast, it sounds good.

Hey guys, this is a bit of a necropost, but Planetary Annihilation came through, and the game is pretty great.  It is still a bit bare bones in some ways, but I just militarized an asteroid and destroyed a planet with it, so much can be forgiven!  I was just wondering if anyone has this and is interested in playing some.
