SWEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!  ;D


My pledge is in, and I've got my fingers crossed. With 3 days to go and the Final Rush still ahead, I'm optimistic they'll break the Galactic Annihilation mark.

I cried a little when I got the email that GoG had TA on its roster. I missed that game something fierce. It was the only RTS that I really enjoyed playing. So yesterday, before work I went down and did the same as DarkLloyd so I could do my part to make the galactic annihilation goal a reality.

Yet another hit to the wallet... ;)

As much as I'm loving some of the projects on KS, really starting to get "overloaded".

well the company folded so I imagine they should be fine but I bet whoever took over their games owns the rights to the image/name.

What began as a conflict over the transfer of consciousness from flesh to machines escalated into a war which has decimated a million worlds. The Core and the Arm have all but exhausted the resources of a galaxy in their struggle for domination. Both sides now crippled beyond repair, the remnants of their armies continue to battle on ravaged planets, their hatred fueled by over four thousand years of total war. This is a fight to the death. For each side, the only acceptable outcome is the complete elimination of the other.

Several team members for this game were Cavedog employees, so I'm sure they have quite a few mementos of their time there.

Wasn't Supreme Commander (1 & 2) a successor to TA?

Title: Re: From the makers of Total Annihilation

No, the commander units just looked a bit similar. Simple way to tell is that the Supreme Commander games had people in them, and the Total Annihilation setting was one where people were LONG since gone and their AIs just kept fighting the same wars endlessly.
