Yup cant wait also to see what becomes out all of this

But this one seems then to work out, as with homeworld franchise
the guys that wanted to make homeworld 3 , also by means of kickstarter, they didnt made it thru the auction, pity enough.

Looking forward to playing this. It was about damn time we saw something new in the RTS genre, it's a shame not a single big "AAA" studio thought of making a fun looking game like this.

Total Annihilation was a powerful and simplistic game, relying on your strategic skill to overcome the odds rather than unit upgrades and massive force. I loved pushing the boundaries of how small my force could be to beat the overwhelming odds.

The setting was perfect - a civil war that had consumed everything in the galaxy but the hatred between the two factions, their efforts to dominate each other are unparalleled - all notions of honour and mercy pushed aside and forgotten for the ultimate victory - Annihilation of the enemy!

I really hope they capture this for Planetary Annihilation, otherwise it will simply be another Supreme Commander - Fun, but lacking depth - no skill required, just the ability to gather resources and pump out as many units as you can.



Oh and not to forget the soundtrack - They either need to copy the original, or improve on it, nothing else will suffice.

And one more thing lol - customization - it looks like this will be a feature of the new game, much like in Total Annihilation - this feature kept the game expanding beyond anything the creators originally anticipated, and made it so much more valuable to those who loved it.

There is even a TA derived "engine" called spring, which seems to let you import TA models to be used in game take a look at it

springfiles.com/





Also some old info i took from relicnews

TA:Spring is an RTS engine that can natively use data from the original TA CD's and third party units, and let you tinker around with a full-3D enviroment. It functions basically like the original, only this time, you are able to do a few new things (besides the obvious, such as the 3D camera), like take direct (first-person) control of a unit, increase the game speed beyond +10, and a few other nifty things. The engine also features deformable terrain. Look forward to creating craters with your Nuke silos.
