New Add-ons, Stretch Goals, Commander Concepts

Posted by Planetary Annihilation Inc (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!

UPDATED 6:03 PM PST: Clarified minimum requirements for add-ons

In honor of reaching the $1M milestone we are adding a few things to the $95+ tier and revealing our next stretch goal.


Alpha Commander - A unique, in-game commander model designed especially for our Alpha users. See concept art below.

PA Commanders Miniature Set - We’re partnering with a certain miniature company you Kickstarter fans know and love to bring you THREE high quality 3-4 inch miniatures of PA Commanders. These include the Progenitor and Alpha commanders as well as a secret commander that we’ll talk more about later!

If you are pledged at the $95 tier or above you automatically get these additional rewards.


$1,500,000 - Lava and Metal Planets

We’re excited to introduce two new types of planets- lava and metal. Lava is extremely volatile but provides vast amounts of energy and raw materials. Geothermal plants and liquid metal processing mines provide the next level of resource extraction technology. Build in strategic locations to take advantage of the natural defense provided by rivers of flowing lava.

That’s no moon. It’s a space station! Metal planets are wandering relics of wars long past, giant artificial battle stations that can be recycled or reactivated to bring a new level of destruction. Harness the lost knowledge and brute power of the ancients by repairing their installations. Then take over the control structures and rain destruction on your opponents.


We hit the ground running when we reached our primary goal and started to design and develop some of the Commander concepts further. Here's an early look at the limited edition Progenitor and Alpha Commander:

      For beta/alpha testers, will it be allowed to publically stream your testing experience? What about private streams?

      Man, I really really hope you achieve every stretch goal because so far all your stretch goals sound absolutely awesome.

      Whoa, you really need 200k bucks for every 2 planet types? They better be REALLY good o.O

      Lava and Metal planets should be higher than Gas Giants.
      Because HOLY shit lava sounds amazing - and a metal pla.. errr I mean Death Star, sounds so much more amazing!

      "Sir our metal/Death Star is tearing apart"
      "Alright soldiers, mount the the engines and prepare it for the collide.."

      I'd pretty much guarantee you get them at $95 early bird.

      Just upgraded to $100 from $20, was tempted before and this just made it too good to pass up!

      O M F GOD, Lava And Metal Planets I KNEW IT.

      I pledged 150 (extra 50 for 3 beta keys i think).

    8. J.R. Raith on

      Same question as Jason -- if they're not available at the $95 tier, I'll switch to $100.

      I also hope that, if the stretch goals aren't met during the Kickstarter, the team considers all of these things for a future Expansion Pack. :)

    9. Greg on

      If you pledged over 100 then both are available to you.. Otherwise 50 gets you the progenitor, if you dont back at either levels you will never have those commanders its the incentive

      Oh man oh man, Metal planets!


    11. Andreas Ringlstetter on

      The new stretch goal sounds awesome, lets hope we make it.

      As for the miniatures, high quality metal, handpainted figures (made to last for decades) or just plain plastic figures which loose their painting or change color when exposed to sunlight?

      So are the progenitor and alpha just special limited skins/models of units that are available to everyone?

    13. Darren Myers on

      I assume any pledge above 100 will still include all previous tiers even the recently added ones. Such as pledging 250 will still get you the miniatures?

    14. Anders Mellon Skov Hermansen on

      I love the miniature news - thank you for being awesome!

    15. Jason Hsu on

      Are Early Bird $100 backers (aka $95 backers) getting the newly added rewards too?

    16. Robin Morrison on

      Congratulations on hitting $1 Million. This game is going to rock.

    17. Neeraj Vyas on


      Btw first :D

    18. Greg on

      Awesome!! Please give some consideration to an add on for a printed version of the digital book, it doesnt have to be free or signed. Im in at $20 for a hardcover if its added as an option to buy for $100 backers
