Planetary Annihilation is coming to Linux.

I was walking in Diaspora * this morning and I realize that they put this news ... «Planetary Annihilation come to Linux ”and I did some research.

I realized that it is quite an interesting RTS, with the concepts that we all generally know but with the peculiarity of having all kinds of new possibilities.

The game is powered by a startup company, Uber Entertainment, a start-up gaming company that chose to use Kickstarter as a launch pad and confirmed themselves that the game would come to Linux, that it wouldn't be easy, but they would.

Here's the proof:

You spoke, we listened; Linux support is confirmed. This is not a stretch goal. We are supporting it right out of the

And this goes on and on, apparently games are starting to fall on Linux, why? I am not going to put myself on edge to analyze why now since everyone should have an idea by now; The beauty of all this is that developments begin to emerge without the need for large capital, we begin to see that the indies really create good, high-quality things and we have to support them; I don't have access to dollars, but from here I at least make some weight to help the project.

On September 14 of this year the donations end, $ 511,644 has already been collected, there are 25 days left and they need 900,000; a lot yeah, but looking at the quality of the game and being a die-hard RTS lover, wow I can't wait for it to come out and see how to buy the game.

PS: the game will be neither free nor free, but that does not detract from its merit.


I leave you the official Kickstarter Video.

    The video looks great !!!! But I would say that apart from having an air of Starcraft it has a resemblance to the strategic part "the part of tribes and countries" of Spore.

      According to themselves, the game is inspired by the classic "Total Annihilation"

    Since we are talking about games…. and excuse the offtopic but…. any idea where to get CrossOver Games ??

    is that I was left to bring WoW Cataclysm these days and I want to "cackle it a bit"

    I do not know that game, but from the image it leaves you a flavor of StarCraft and its terrans.

    Neji if you get the cross, I don't care if you live in Mesopotamia but I'm going to find it. Until I have the DoTA and WoW on my PC I won't stop !!

      I could download the CrossOver 🙂

    The round business, they ask for donations for its development and then it is neither free nor free… .. either the rest of the entrepreneurs are very stupid or these are very smart… I will copy their business model to the donation that I create something and then I charge them want hahahaha

      In fact, what you donate is returned in gifts, the game as a download will be worth $ 20 if I remember correctly and if you give $ 20, they not only let you download it for free but also give you extra things in the game

    Praise you Gaara !! Haha, Well, here I just saw a crossover but it is for 64 bits, and the ubuntu that I have already installed and configured is 32 bit, if you can download a version for 32 and put it in the downloads of the young club myself (and I know that others thousands of co-citizens) we will be eternally grateful!

      Touch! But by the way… I play Warcraft, Startcraft and Diablo 1.10 on my home PC with Debian and WINE. I once played WoW with Gentoo and Crossover ...

      OT: Neji, how can I know your email?

      1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

        If you want I will pass your email to him by email, or by IRC or FB.

    "I don't have access to dollars", hahahaha xD very good, the game interesting although I won't buy it. In Linux, games of this type with the spring engine are interesting, although they lack a good final push.

    Nano are you from Argentina? I ask about the dollars haha

    1.    dwarf said

      From Venezuela.

    2.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      In Argentina it also has that problem O_O

    I stay with starcraft or with AOE in wine hahaha

    1.    dwarf said

      They are not the same, also, nothing like the native games xD

    Well, I would like to see that native L4D2 for Linux with superior performance than the Windows version, which has been talked about so much (actually I have not seen it for any platform), it would be good to have something else to play that was not openarena and the others known and that on top of it had graphics that really exploited the hardware and the functionality of the new accelerators, such as tesselation. I liked AOE a lot, (Starcraft not so much), but strategy games take time that is scarce, so I prefer something that has a story but can be enjoyed for about 30 min at a time. Any recommendation?

    The reason for this case has no mystery, they are an indie developer, who incidentally has received financing from individuals where surely many people asked / commented on the subject; so as is natural in these cases (when there is no client) "they are attentive" to any potential client.
