Carmageddon Countdown

Carmageddon.com 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.

Did I read this is a Square Enix game? When's the last time they've done anything worthwhile?




Carmageddon 1 was one of those games I put probably 20+ hours into, but never actually owned. All that time was put into the demo. If I recall the demo had a 2 minute limit, so it became about seeing how much carnage you could cause in 2 mere minutes. I don't recall if there was a time crack on the demo (I think there was) but I know there was a car crack, so you could spend those 2 minutes driving the tank-like Police car. Man, the replays from head-ons in those. And I have vivid memories of the granny-with-a-walker sprite spinning like crazy when you nailed it at 90 mph.

Carmageddon 2 I actually owned, but never played properly. I really just looked to play it like I played the original demo, so I cheated to unlock everything then played random levels with random vehicles and tried to see what carnage I could create while totally ignoring any objectives. And it was glorious.
