Planetary Annihilation Kickstarter launched by SMNC dev Uber Entertainment

The developers behind Monday Night Combat and Super Monday Night Combat have announced that they'll be heading to Kickstarter to seek funding for their next project. Called Planetary Annihilation, the title will be an RTS featuring huge battles based on the cult classic Total Annihilation.

It's not just inspired by Total Annihilation though. The studio was founded by members of the Supreme Commander team which was led by the former director of TA. The video below also features former members of the TA team.

There's no gameplay shown in the debut trailer, but the video is downright awe-inspiring. It's not just about huge battles, but also literally crashing asteroids into your enemy (seen in the image above.)

So far the Kickstarter is progressing at a decent clip, raking in $25,000 (out of a $900,000 funding goal) since it was revealed earlier today. You can check out the highly entertaining KS video below. Stick around to the end to watch the narrator bust his hairy chest of his shirt while roaring out some vocals.

They've also launched a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread here.

    Total Annihilation was fantastic

    This looks like a fun game, and I'm not much of an RTS player.

    I'm all for Kickstarter especially when its to help small devs that are trying to break into the industry ..... when larger, established, devs throw their hat into it.... I dunno it just causes me to raises an eyebrow.

    I'm not really into strategy, but this looks like an RTS I'd play.
