Capture an asteroid, then attach rockets to it and smash your enemy from orbit. Yes. Yes I will.

Some of you may remember Total Annihilation, 1997′s seminal RTS and still a game looked back upon fondly by millions. Well, many of that games’ creators now work at Uber Entertainment, makers of such games as Monday Night Combat, and they want to make another RTS. Only this time, they don’t want any publishers involved, because they’re asking you to fund it directly.
Planetary Annihilation is ‘Total Annihilation-inspired gameplay on a planetary scale’, and if their trailer is anything to go by, it’ll involve managing bases on multiple planets, orbital drops, asteroid captures, and even the building of gigantic rockets on the back of asteroids to push them directly onto your enemy’s base, killing them instantly. Sounds amazing.
