Next Car Game Kickstarter

Bugbear Entertainment has launched a Kickstarter for their next car game, which is currently codenamed Next Car Game. This project was announced over a year ago, but they say "many of our fans have asked us for a Kickstarter," though we'll assume they can use the money, and are not just collecting it to humor us. Stretch goals include next generation console editions of the PC game, and they promise a playable sneak peek demo to all backers immediately upon conclusion of the fundraiser. Here's a bit of their pitch:

Next Car Game will be our tenth game, and this time we wanted to work directly with the players instead of working with a publisher. We want to make this game for us and the players, not for the publisher. We strongly believe that it is possible to create the world’s best demolition racing game using crowd-funding, and to do that, we need engage the community and develop the game together with the players. This is something that Kickstarter makes possible: doing the game with the fans gives us a lot more creative freedom, and together we have a chance to create a better game.

Oculus Rift 2014 Release Plans

There will be just one model of the Oculus Rift when the VR headset is released to consumers next year, Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe explains to Engadget, clarifying that there will not be separate versions of the Rift for PCs and Android. They also clarify that Android support will be "slim" to begin with, and John Carmack describes it as a "PC-based product with Android compatibility," and the implication seems to be that Android support will also require a computer: "That's why we're optimizing for Android, but the Oculus Rift will have a cable that goes down to another device which provides the CPU/GPU computing -- whether that's a laptop, a desktop, or potentially a mobile device, that's always been our focus for V1, that continues to be our focus for V1." They also touch on a future vision of a standalone unit, but stress that their main focus is to get their V1 units into consumers' hands at some point next year. Thanks nin via Shacknews.

Supreme Ruler 1936 Trailers

The Kickstarter for Supreme Ruler 1936 has a two-part video walkthrough of BattleGoat Studios' upcoming real-time strategy prequel (part one and part two). The clip features developer narration, and fills us in on much of what they have in store for the game. They hope to inspire further interest in their Kickstarter, which is only about 20% to its goal with two weeks remaining, and they add they will still push ahead with the project if the campaign doesn't succeed, though this may prevent them from self-publishing it as they had planned.
