Submission + - Uber to create Planetary Annihilation RTS on epic scale (

NortySpock writes: Uber Entertainment plans to create Planetary Annihilation, an RTS on a solar-system scale. Featuring world-spanning land battles, fights to take control of moons and asteroids, and planet-razing asteroid strikes, this game seems to have it all. Who doesn't want to shut down their enemy with rocks from space?

The tech and art leads have worked on Command and Conquer, Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, and they say they want massive battles with thousands of units and tens of players. The last round of their kickstarter campaign is starting, and with it they plan to add a galactic single-player/co-op/multiplayer metagame!
