Okay, well this isn't a game... yet.

From the people that made Monday Night Combat comes an RTS, the spiritual successor to Total Annihilation.

I actually picked up Total Annihilation the other day and have been playing the heck out of it, when all of a sudden I watch this video. This may be what finally gets me into kickstarter.

Oh, and if you think this video is cool BUY TOTAL ANNIHILATION (GoG.com, $5.99) AN LET"S BLOW EACHOTHER UP!!!

Sorry, I'm just sick of the AI... but not the explosions.

Looks like they just blew past the goal so good on them! Beyond that, which is awesome... The game looks epic. The art style reminds me a smidge of Team Fortress 2 in its solid colors and cartoony vibe. I dug the voice acting and music, if they can pull off 80% of what they want this game will be really fun.

I hadn't really considered before that the whole RTS genere is fairly underserved right now. Quite true. I still mostly just play Rise of Nations & Age of Mythology with my friends on LAN occasionally. Newest RTS I obtained was SC2.

Moar!
