Monday Night Combat developers Uber Entertainment have put their new real-time strategy game Planetary Annihilation on Kickstarter, and are seeking 900K to fund the title.

 
The game is described as a "planetary level" of the classic RTS Total Annihilation, with one of the gimmicks being that each planet is completely procedurally generated by their proprietary War Machine engine "Our 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," the developers explain.

The results are similar to the planets seen in Spore.

As for gameplay itself, Uber describes, "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 Annihilationís AI or team up with a friend against multiple AIís."

Gamers interested in investing in Planetary Annihilation can do so at the official Kickstarter page here.

Some of those guys seem to have worked on both Total Annihilation and SupCom.

I loved Total Annihilation and Supcom+FA. I even made maps for FA (downloadable from this site) and I can't wait for this game. Best news for me this gaming year ;) The Kickstarter looks really promising. Also know that they accept donations through paypal which don't show on Kickstarter. So if you want to donate money but you don't have a credit card, use paypal ;)
