I saw this today and I haven't played Total Annihilation that much, but this Kickstarter project from Uber Entertainment Inc is epic! What it is: a Total Annihilation-inspired RTS game on a PLANETARY SCALE. For more information visit the Kickstarter page here. I really want to back this but I just backed Castle Story and their release date is still July 2013. You can back this for $15 (for a $20 pledge) but you have to back it now because it currently comes in limited quantities (3000+ as of now). I assume that the retail price will be $20 but we don't know; maybe it will be higher in the future.
The thing is, they have a $900k goal for this game which some people were surprised about, because they said that Total Annihilation's player base was not that big. But look at that concept! It's so great! You can even have your own server where more people can join without making your PC cry! Right now it's at $100k and there are still 29 days to go! If you love this kind of game -- which personally I really do -- back this game now!
