Ground based RTS where Humans are literally the harvested resource.

This one is looking for 1.4 mil and features a giant robot race fighting Cthulu, pretty much.  There is also a lot of destruction going on, with buildings used as weapons, and land carved up and fed to your god.

The humans invoke the tentacled Ancient Ones in a last-ditch effort to stem the Machine onslaught. This proves unwise.

Yes, this looks incredible for a fan of giant monsters and city destruction.   headbang  I don't even care about RTS games anymore, but I want this to happen so badly.   icon_biggrin

One thing that strikes me a little wrong, though, they weren't really clear in the video that it was pre-visualization.  It says way down in their "Risks and Challenges" that it is, but there was no mention of it like there was in the Planetary Annihilation video.

Another issue is whether this game is going to have the same problem where there might be pretty graphics, but you never see them because there's no reason to play in anything but a super zoomed out view.

Does look very cool but I too fall into the "don't care about RTS games anymore" camp.

Specifically, Planetary Annihilation, not Human Resources.

Yeah, the title of this thread could maybe be reworded to put the important info first.

Looks like they're over $150k already ($157, 279 currently) so not a bad start.

Hope they make their goal. That intro video kicks all kinds of ass. Robots vs. Ctuhulu? Count me in!

Not convinced yet?
Here's a new pitch from the devs.  It's pretty hot.

Heh, Hot Pepper Gaming is usually worth a good chuckle.

Looks like their funding has slowed down pretty drastically, now at ~$235k out of $1.4 million.

New design commentary video that walks through parts of the pre-viz trailer and shows what the units are, talks about how they will work, and so on.

This isn't fairing too well.  They've hit 256K so far out of the 1.4 million with 3 weeks to go.

Yeah, not doing so great.  They've been trying to put out videos and things but I think a lot of people may have felt burned by Planetary Annihilation and be a little more skeptical this time around.

Planetary Annihilation was not received overly well by the community that backed it so Iím not surprised that they havenít been overwhelmed with support.  The fact that they ae asking for more money when they already have the engine built this time around probably doesnít help either.

Uber pulled the plug today. with only ~384k out of 1.4mil

The consensus is that Uber burned some bridges after MNC, SMNC and PA development fell off after the next game came out.  I expect a different take on HR at some point, but for now, this one is dead.

Yeah, I think they just didn't have the pull any longer to get the backing.  Which is too bad, the concept is cool and the pre-viz video looked amazing. 

Hopefully they can bring back the concept in some other way in the future.
