Planetary Annihilation alpha footage shows base building

As a spiritual successor of sorts to the popular classic Total Annihilation RTS, Planetary Annihilation grabbed more than $2.2 million in a Kickstarter campaign last year. Developer Uber Entertainment has kept backers and fans up-to-date regularly with various livestreams, but now they are showing the first alpha footage of the game in action.

The footage shows off base-building on an Earth-type planet with the new commander. Many of the animations are new, but there is still some placeholder art. They make it clear the game is no where near finished, but the team was eager to show off the game in action, although no combat is on display.

If you want to see how the game is progressing, minus the annihilation at this point, check out the video.
