Hadn't heard of neither the game nor the engine but that looks pretty neat.

I love to play Balanced Annhilation for SpringRTS, its my favorite rts game, even more than Starcraft. Unfortunately I don't have any friends with my level of noobiness to play in coop againts bots in casual games.

Both SpringRTS and Supreme Commander are based on the game play in Total Annihilation.

Personally I wouldn't call PA as SupCom descendant. It's does share a lot of things with TA, but very few with SC and Zero-K is likely a lot closer to it. So guys who trying to find SupCom-like game better to go with Zero-K.

PS: Now main thing shared between Zero-K and PA would be that both use SDL2 and OpenGL. :D
