Uber Entertainment is an American video game developer based in Kirkland, Washington. Employees of this company worked on games such as Total Annihilation, Supreme Commander, Command and Conquer, and Demigod.[1] In 2010, Uber Entertainment released its first title, Monday Night Combat, which was well received by critics.

In September 2012, the company successfully ran a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for its real-time strategy title, Planetary Annihilation. The fundraiser produced over US$2.2 million in funds. The original retail release was slated for December 2013,[2] but was postponed, with the game expected "to be feature-complete in early 2014." [3]

On October 2, 2014, Uber Entertainment announced a new Kickstarter campaign for a real-time strategy game, Human Resources. The goal was set for $1.4 million, though the project was cancelled October 21, 2014 after projections showed the fundraiser would fail to raise the needed capital.[4]
