This game looks awesome and truly epic. I'd love to see an RTS like this instead of just re-hashed Starcraft and AoE clones. It sort of reminds of Sins of a Solar Empire, except with a focus on ground combat rather than space battles.

HOLY SHIT. This is the RTS I've been dreaming of forever. I'm going to back the shit out of this.

I am pleased that they have achieved a third of their goal in two days.

The moon and asteroid stuff is pretty sweet yes, but despite that there's nothing impressive about it. Looks alot like Total Annihilation/Supreme Commander.

That's because some of the guys who worked on Total Annihilation are working on this.

To quote a certain LP-


Planetary Annihilation- it ends in total elimination.

And the Understatement Of The Year award goes to BFenix for calling the ability to crash moons into planets "Pretty sweet"

Crashing moons into planets = pretty sweet
Crashing moons into the mockingbird armada = EPIC

Pretty sweet is an overstatement.

I want to be able to crash antimatter planets into solar systems.

:necro:

Soooo, after watching some of ZaphodX videos and playing a bit I've changed my opinion regarding the game. It actually picks up the existing RTS elements and kicks them up a notch.

It's no longer pretty sweet. It's pretty epic, indeed.

Picked up on last steam sale. Played it once. Realised that as awesome as it is, It needs more development, perhaps a full year, before its Alpha is 'playable'. A mixture of borked pathfinding, and a failure to convey concepts (Tu-motherfucking-torials damnit, I'm not watching LP'ers to learn your game). I'm not an RTS expert, but even I can spot those problems.
