    No DRM, 64-bit support, cross-platform, mod support... Sounds good. Although personally I don't enjoy that graphics style. But then, mods are probably going to improve that; I'll have to monitor that space.

    This looks like it will be an awesome game. At the same time it's not my thing. I will readily admit that I totally suck at traditional RTS games and would get completely annihilated (pun intended) in this game. The only RTS games I am at all good at and like are smaller squad baded games without base building like Warhammer 40k: DoW 2. Still, I recognize that Total Annihilation was a terrific game, even if I did completely suck at it, am glad that this is coming to Linux, and wish this Kickstarter project nothing but success.

    Yeah, but it's very expensive - 82.99 euro on steam!

    its $90 *IF* you want alpha access, retail it is only $40.
    Think of it like humble-bundle... pay want you want to support them and indie dev's BUT if you pay over a certain amount you get some extras
    I backed it with $90 to provide support for a linux client NOT for alpha - it really is an alpha btw, the linux client has a selection bug which means it can't really operate

    Never played TA-Spring, but if this game is similar, why not just play Zero-K?
