Planetary Annihilation

Post by CivBase on Wed Aug 15, 2012 11:32 pm



This. Looks. Amazing.

Seriously.

Only. Sentences. With. Single. Words. Can. Even. Describe. How. Awesome. This. Looks.

Really.

Yah.

But it's all conceptual for now, so yah. Still looks amazing.

I pledged $15 to the Kickstart for it. Anyone wanna pledge $10,000?

EDIT: Btw, this isn't a thread asking people to give money to the kickstarter. I just think the concept is sweet and I wanted to share it.

Unfortunately they caught me at a bad time, in not a millionaire yet so I can't donate $10,000.


I hope there is a variety of ways to annihilate planets though. Throwing rocks at them all the time could get dull.

I don't trust virtually any kickstarter project than being other than a massive scam, but this does look interesting.

Shame it will never come to a platform I care about.

They said they're going to allow you to split your screen on single monitors as well.

They've added some stretch goals, which include naval units, gas giants and enhanced orbital units.
From the Kickstarter page wrote:$1,100,000 - Naval units and Water Planets

We are happy to announce that our first stretch goal is a set of naval units and extended support for water planets. One of the most popular questions we receive is whether or not naval warfare is going to be supported. We like naval warfare and want to have it in the game, but it’s going to be quite a bit of additional work. We want to not only support naval units but to do a great job at it. Likewise we want great support for water in the engine and the ability to create amazing planets that are largely water. First class support for naval means you will be able to have a combination of water and land planets as well as ice asteroids. Huge water only planets to play out all kinds of naval only scenarios will also be supported. Asteroid tsunamis FTW! Some of the water units we can expect include subs, amphibious units, floating buildings and of course battleships!

$1,300,000 - Gas Giants and Enhanced Orbital units

Many of you are excited about the idea of more planet types and more gameplay to take specific advantage of those planets. This stretch goal is to add gas giant planets (similar to saturn or jupiter) to the game and an expanded set of orbital units with unique gameplay. Gas giants have no land in the real world but we may allow some buildable areas on “high mountains” on these planets. Imagine massive fusion reactors sucking helium-3 right out of the atmosphere and giant orbital defense lasers. A more expanded set of orbital recon units, space platforms and other types of orbital units based on your ideas will be added as well.

$700,000 after a little over a week and still three weeks to go. Looks like this will definitely make the minimum $900,000 mark.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/659943965/planetary-annihilation-a-next-generation-rts

It finished at $2,229,344, so all the announced stretch goals were reached. (Naval units and water planets, gas giants and improved orbital units, metal and lava planets, a galactic war gamemode, a full orchestral score performed by the Northwest Sinfonia (they performed for Halo and Total Annihilation's soundtracks), and a documentary)

It's about time. The RTS needs something fresh and solid. Now that Generals 2 is dead we have only this and Company of Heroes 2 to look forward to.

They have an estimated delivery of the game for July 2013, but I'm not sure how accurate that is, as it is the same for every tier.
