Carmageddon: Another Kickstarter-Funded Remake Attempt

Kick

starter'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.

    oh cool i love the first 2 carmageddon games , I wonder if the new one will feature any music from known meta bands , like the first 2 did ( C1 had fear factory music in it , C2 had Iron maiden music in it ). I'd love to see this revival get finished and done right. i spent many hours running peds over in both originals on pc of course ... wussy nintendo 64 bit version had green blood in palce of red blood and zombies instead of human peds. (which was carmagedon 2 renamed to carmagedon 64)


    can't wait to hear more about this.

    Huh, apparently, this Kickstarter thing is working. Can we have remakes of Populous: The Beginning and Redline?

    One can only hope... but in today's megacorporate/fascist world, I fear it will be banned in several countries, receive R+ rating, officially only allow gameplay after submitting identity information, being between 24 and 40 years old and having no issues with the law ever before.

    And it will include draconic DRM, with required permanent internet connection and turned on webcam and face detection so they can spy on you while playing. If you even make one little grin while smashing civilians, they will cut you off and automatically call the police with attempted murder charges.

    /end rambling.
