Planetary Annihilation promises Total Annihilation-inspired strategy, seeks Kickstarter funding

Uber Entertainment's Planetary Annihilation seeking funding on Kickstarter.

Doing its part to prevent the real-time strategy genre from extinction, the developer of Monday Night Combat and Super Monday Night Combat are attempting to kickstart interest in a Total Annihilation-inspired RTS.

Uber Entertainment launched its Kickstarter drive for Planetary Annihilation today, seeking $900,000 to fund development of, in their words, a "truly innovative spin on what RTS games can and should be." Planetary Annihilation wears its Total Annihilation inspiration on its sleeve — and, of course, its title — with its intergalactic warfare between thousands of mechanized units.

Planetary Annihilation's creators promise multiplayer ranging from simple, two-player skirmishes to "12+ hour game[s] with 40 of your closest frenemies and thousands of units." A procedural planet generator, advanced modding features, and client-server online multiplayer are listed as some of the game's key features.

Huge, 3D battles across multiple planets awaits!

The developer has the pedigree to back up its bold RTS plans. Uber Entertainment staffers have worked on real-time strategy games like Total Annihilation, Command & Conquer, Supreme Commander and Demigod.

Uber says the current scope is multiplayer only, given its funding goals. However, the developer teases the possibility of a single-player campaign as one of the unrevealed stretch goals.

Planetary Annihilation is planned for release on PC and Mac via "a wide variety of distribution platforms."
