I’ve been geeking out in PC gaming for the past few weeks, but one thing has me really excited. Uber’s new game Planetary Annihilation mixes strategy and world building under a cool premise. Built for OS/X and Windows, there is a general push to letting the player customize the game however they see fit. Be it small skirmishes to control a piece of land or several planets pitted against each other, the scale of battle is as large as you want. You could kick back, play offline, and destroy some planets. Or log online to join someone else’s attempt to conquer the galaxy.
The game was funded via Kickstarter where they were attempting to raise $900,000. Amazingly they ended up raising $2,229,344, far exceeding they’re already lofty goal. Clearly there’s a true passion for this game and the work that Uber Entertainment is doing.
Planetary Annihilation has another month left in alpha, but you can join the action whenever you want. They also have a rather extensive section of concept art you can browse through to get a sense of the vast world they’re creating.
