Planetary Annihilation is an in-development strategy game from Uber Studios that, unlike most other entries in the field we see these days, is trying something genuinely different.

While its promise of truly global warfare looks a little like Spore, and in terms of scale it reminds me a little of Total Annihilation, the way its trying to handle combat over multiple, entire planets is like nothing I've ever seen before.

Just take a look at the trailer above. The way you've got access to the entire planet. Then stick around for the 0:45 second mark, with planetary movement. Then watch as you can throw an asteroid at a planet. So awesome.

Also appealing is the art style, and the fact Uber are the same guys who made Monday Night Combat. You can read more about the game below.
