    Gas Powered Games, the studio responsible for games like Dungeon Siege, Demigod, and Supreme Commander, has announced its next project. The game is described as an "epic real-time strategy game" and is in development for the PC and "next-generation consoles." I suspect that really means "current-generation consoles," and not the PlayStation 4.

    There really isn't too much more out there about the game beyond this video of Chris Taylor, kicking it with chickens and horses.
      
      
    The company plans to post weekly video blogs, some of which may actually talk about the game's development. But to be honest, I could totally watch weekly videos of Chris Taylor just being Chris Taylor, too. Head over to the game's official site for more.

    So this is how they develop the Farm for their new game. Sweet!

    I'm hoping the game will turn out great to be fair.

    I hate this. I feel like as soon as the majority of developers shifted from Xbox to Xbox 360 development (or any other comparable consoles), next-gen should be known as current-gen. At this rate, when the PS4 comes out it'll be known as SUPER NEXT-GEN.

    Yeah Chris Taylor. He created Total Annihilation. Now that was an amazing RTS.
     
    Edit: Oh, and if the game has "Chris Taylor's" in the title, then its success guaranteed .

    I used to love RTS/ turn based strategy games. The last one that I enjoyed a ton was Rome:Total War. The genre just hasn't done anything new or exciting. I am very skeptical of this game as well as the new Starcraft. They just look like the same thing I have played over and over again, each with a few small gimmicks. I hope something comes around to revitalize the genre.

    I'd be cool if they mixed int he epic scale of Supreme Commander and fantasy. Imagine it now thousands of tiny dudes being ripped limb from limb, their prepubescent cries echoing in the wind. Ahh smells like beauty.

    It was actually pretty decent. Not as good as TA, but not as bad as everyone said it was. The different factions were pretty interesting, with some different spawn mechanics and ... just weird stuff. But there were only about 10 units per faction, which a lot of people hated.

    My problem is that I like Chris Taylor, I love Gas Powered Games, but I hate RTS games.  Mostly because I suck at them.

    Huh, so that's what Chris Taylor's like... 
     
    No wonder they put his names on all the games, who wouldn't buy them? 
    I am so going to work with this dude some day... 
     
    Wonder if this'll be the Kingdoms to Supreme Commander.

    Chris Taylor i hear doesnt run a slave shop like the rest of the industry (i hear.....i could be wrong i guess) so anyway i hope this project does well.  I really enjoyed Supreme Commander and Dungeon Siege.
     
    I also hope their video blogs are actually informative about the game design process.  This was cute but not that funny.

    The original Dungeon Siege and I had such a great time together. The sequel didn't quite hit the mark, however. I wish he'd stop with the RTS and make another GOOD Dungeon Siege.
