New Carmageddon is Indie Game?

Following the appearance of a countdown timer on Carmageddon.com is a report on VG247 saying the new project will be an independently developed project. This corrects reports that appeared over the weekend saying that Square Enix would be publishing the game as a result of their Eidos acquisition. It is not specified who is developing the game according to their unverified report, which is attributed to a "source familiar with the matter." We should learn more soon enough, as the countdown looks like it will end on June 1.

Almost all of that was contract work with other peoples' IPs. Contract work is often quick, dirty, and of just enough quality to avoid the damn thing getting cancelled. That's about it.

Undeniably. They were paying the bills.



For a decade and a half. This isn't paying the bills for five years, this is fifteen. Fifteen! No matter how great a developer you are your skills and instincts will change over fifteen years of doing quick, dirty, low budget and low quality shovelware.




I'm not saying there's zero chance of this being good, I'm just saying that holding your breath and getting all excited for it is probably a mistake. I was vaguely excited for that Red Baron game, which until today I didn't even realize was Stainless, and it was far, far worse than the Snoopy vs. The Red Baron downloadable flight sim that came out around the same time.
Hell, at this point I expect Carmageddon to be a quick and dirty downloadable game that's short, shallow and cheap, just like that Red Baron was.
