A new company named Planetary Annihilation Inc is being formed to continue pushing the RTS game Planetary Annihilation [Official Site] which supports Linux.
As they mentioned to back in June, they were working on a new team, although they didn't really give out many specifics. Today, that seems to be changing with a major announcement that a new studio is being formed comprised of original PA developers and long-time community contributors. This is really fantastic news, since there's quite literally nothing else similar to PA on Linux.
We are proud to announce the creation of Planetary Annihilation Inc, a new company with a team comprised of original PA developers and long-time community contributors. Our sole focus will be Planetary Annihilation and making PA into the best game that it can be, one ready to take full advantage of the many changes in technology since development started back in 2012.
They're promising no more silence, so hopefully they will put out some kind of roadmap. They will also be working on performance improvements, setting up a Discord server and so on.
One of the first major things I hope they do, is merge Planetary Annihilation and TITANS together into one proper game. Right now the community is fractured, because of their decision to make a new game that's basically an expansion of PA. I honestly don't see a point in them keeping it separated any more, it just causes confusion.
For now though, if you own PA but you don't own TITANS they've permanently increased the discount to upgrade to it, which is a start.
It's going to be very interesting to see what they do with it. I'm a huge fan of the game, so I hope they keep the Linux version nicely polished.
