Uber Entertainment are a developer who successfully kickstarted an rts game, about building on a planet and then smashing enemy planets with big stuff. They have a video of their early progress on the game, showing off some base building and map navigation. It is quite talky and mostly for those that backed the project, however I still think it’s worth watching.

It has a unique world view for a strategy game, and definitely reminds me of Total Annihilation, a very old but fantastic rts game, which spawned Supreme Commander.  There are hints of a window in window view for units or locations and the ability to rewind and replay past events during game play. There is also mention of no mini-map, due to alternate functionality that will fulfill the same purpose. It will be interesting to see how this game develops, having a team made up of folks from Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander among others suggests some impressive pedigree.
