And lots of the developers of TA and Supreme Commander are working on it, granted it is without Chris Taylor.

 

Looks really interesting though. I freaking loved Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, I hope this reaches its goal and gets funded.

I still play TA from time to time but I like more The Spring project - graphics, solutions ect are better than in original TA.

What important it is for me it is better than Supreme Commander which was below average I think.

 

Screens of Planetary Annihilation are quite cute btw :D

Reminder: Fighter pilots make movies. Bomber pilots make... HISTORY! :D | Also to be remembered: FRENCH TANKS HAVE ONE GEAR FORWARD AND FIVE BACKWARD :D

I think the video is more of a proof of concept sort of thing to sell the idea to as many people as possible than actual gameplay. Just from the scale of the worlds it seemed to have a smaller land area than what was present on some SupCom maps. Although the whole idea is kind of out there as they want to have some really long games where its a battle to control a planet and then eventually move on to planet vs planet combat... Almost seems better fitting for a 4X game with RTS components.

Honestly I almost thought SupCom was a disappointment. I got sick of zooming in and out to see the action and it just wasn't as much fun as TA was with UTASP (+400 really crazy units). More than just having crazy variety though, I think Supreme Commander just tried to be too serious.

 

Even in the new video the guy is like "yeah, nobody remembers WHY we are fighting anymore...HEY! ASTEROID BOMBS!"

 

That sort of shallowness in games, like between Doom 1+2 and Doom 3, is really what makes the fun ones fun...

The original TA was dead serious as well :)

are they presenting the playing field on a globe ? because thats just a bit of RTS genius imo, much nicer than this flat plane action were used to. with a bit of LOS involved that idea alone could be just sweet in its own pseudo scale way.
