Trivia

April Fool's Day Joke

The game was part of an April Fool's Day joke by Cavedog Entertainment, that on April 1, 1999 published a press release stating that due to legal problems with the U.S. Patent Office, the company and all its trademarks had to be renamed. Cavedog Entertainment became Frozen Yak Entertainment, Total Annihilation was renamed Really Cool Wargame, and Total Annihilation: Kingdoms was supposedly called Really Cool Wargame with Trolls.

Awards

In the German gaming magazine GameStar (issue 03/2000) Total Annihilation: Kingdoms received a special award as "Biggest Disappointment in 1999".
