Carmageddon Countdown now offers a countdown timer that looks like it will reach zero on June 1, suggesting an announcement is coming just in advance of this year's E3. The original Carmageddon was a 1997 DOS release, and the most recent installment was Carmageddon: Total Destruction Racing 2000 more than a decade ago. Thanks Computer and Video Games.

Yea, I have run into the same issues trying to reinstall and play both of them. I really wish someone would get ahold of them and make them compatible....

I've actually emailed GOG asking if they would or could please patch up then sell the old Carmageddons, this was their reply:


I'm afraid that I can't comment on whether or not we'll be releasing certain titles. I can only assure you that we're doing everything possible to get our hands on the best good old games.

Unfortunately the process is very complex and difficult. Not all publishers wish to sell their back catalog, not all can be convinced that "no DRM" is a good idea, and sometimes it's just plain impossible to research who (if anyone) has the rights to a certain title. Getting an old game to work on modern systems often proves to be the easiest task.

Check out this Q/A video, featuring one of my superiors - Marcin Iwinski, for a first-hand view of how it works:

Finally, please stay tuned and check out our news page every week for new release info.
