Uber Entertainment closer to ‘Planetary Annihilation’ with $900,000 Kickstarter effort

Do you sit around all day, wishing you could engage in some post-apocalyptic planet-destroying action, pitting your strategy against other wannabe planet-destroyers in real time? Well, ‘Planetary Annihilation’ is one step closer to becoming the reality to pin all your intergalactic planetary destruction hopes and energies on. Because that stuff really needs to get channeled somewhere.

The game’s makers, Kirkland-based Uber Entertainment, have met their initial $900,000 goal on Kickstarter to make ‘Planetary Annihilation’ a reality.

“Your support and feedback has also helped shape and prioritize what our stretch goals will be if we can hit our primary goal,” the Uber guys wrote on their Kickstarter page. “Let’s destroy some planets!”

With more than 22,000 backers already pledging monetary support, the campaign still has 15 days to go. Until Friday, Sept. 14, you, too, can donate to ‘Planetary Annihilation,’ with Kickstarter pledge packages offering such extras as getting early access to the beta version, to having something named for you in the game and more.

‘Planetary Annihilation’ is currently the top project on Kicktraq’s Today’s Hot Seven, and the Uber team predicts that they will double their investment goal by the end of the campaign.

Started in 2008, Uber Entertainment has delivered such games as ‘Total Annilhilation,’ ‘Supreme Commander,’ ‘Demigod’ and more. CTO Jon Mavor and art director Steve Thompson are the project’s leads.
