Stainless Games is the latest of many developers hoping to find success on Kickstarter by backing a big name.
Kickstarter's all the rage for game developers sporting big names. After the Double Fine Adventure, Wasteland 2, and Shadowrun Returns projects all met success, projects such as Grim Dawn and Pinkerton Road Studios have cropped up on Kickstarter, hoping to be bathed in the same success. So far, it looks like the strategy's working.
Stainless Games is doing the same song and dance, hoping to revive the Carmageddon series of old. Stainless is bringing the fighting words to their Kickstarter, calling out the "EVIL publishers" and showing a general resentment towards game industry corporate-types. It's because of the EVIL publishers that Stainless has taken Carmageddon: Reincarnation to Kickstarter, after buying back all the rights to the series.
Carmageddon: Reincarnation will be a reboot of the Carmageddon series and will hopefully capture the spirit of the originals. The project is also bringing a host of goodies to those who decide to drop a few bills, such as the usual flock of posters, t-shirts, and bumper stickers.
So if you hate the EVIL corporate folks, or maybe you just enjoy vehicular mayhem, show Stainless your support through their Kickstarter.
