Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter

Here is a new Kickstarter Campaign for Carmageddon: Reincarnation, an upcoming return to this game of road rage planned by Stainless Games. The project is looking to raise $400,000 and has picked up over $72,000 already. Here's word on what they are scheming:

Carmageddon: Reincarnation is a re-boot of everything that made the original games such a blast to play. The new game will be inspired by the classic environments, cars, drivers and power-ups from the original, but dragged screaming and kicking into the current state of the rendered art. And of course, there will be a bunch of brand new STUFF too, including true rag-doll pedestrians and physics-based power-ups that let you mess with their limbs whilst wiping away the tears - of laughter!

Multiplayer was the hidden-treasure of Carmageddon back in the dark days of LAN parties, but will now be able to be enjoyed by almost all of our players, thanks to the entire planet going online since then. The single player game will be brilliant too, thanks to demented opponents with demented A.I. brains made from demented code written by demented programmers.

Carmageddon was fun back in the day, but this Kickstarter game looks to be way better. For one, you get both driving and shooting.

I think you're missing the whole point of Carmageddon. The series' appeal has always revolved around smashing into things at high speeds. Guns would completely change the gameplay and take the focus away from smashing into things at high speeds. Also, Ravaged is a shooter with vehicles. Carmageddon is pure vehicular combat.

Now, where is the Interstate '76 kickstarter?



F**k yes! I'd happily pledge to that! Thumbsup
Me too, that was a fun game

Please don't support these scams, you are just paying for rent on a game they are already going to make.. Would these guys give you money for your dream and future job?

? And you get a copy of the game for cheaper than retail......wow what a horrible concept.

Thankfully, we don't have to get your approval as to how our money is spent.

TDR 2000 was BY FAR the best Carmageddon game. Too bad it wasn't done by these guys. Oh well. Maybe they can redeem themselves. Maybe.

I'll take an Interstate '76 kickstarter if the devs can prove they're going to lace it with great humour and attitude.

Without that I76 was little more than a mechwarrior mod with 70s cars.

Never get out of the car.

+1 to that. Taurus sounded exactly like Samuel L Jackson. I still have the i76 box on my shelf. i82 was a massive letdown. The game wasn't even complete.

God damn mother.

Sometimes things happen at just the right time. SG sure timed it right this time being able to jump on the kickstarter wave that's currently happening.

Hope this allows them to truly let loose all their creative glory like they did with Carma1.

Now, where is the Interstate '76 kickstarter?

Oh man, I'd love to see a new I76 style game!

My dream game would be like I-76 with an open world dynamic campaign type mission system. Kind of like a flight sim, but with cars.

I still say they're track record over the past decade is enough to make me no way in hell pay for this now, even if Carmageddon is one of my most beloved demos and, at the time of release, I made several friends annoyed by not shutting up about how this was one of my all time favorite games.

I think I have less faith in "aging" game developers making a new game than I do in aging bands releasing a new album.

Yes, I'd love to see that too! I'76 was my favorite vehicle combat game. I never cared much for the sequel..

They haven't been able to make anything original or substantial over the past decade. They've been stuck doing low-budget remakes of old arcade games or cheap spin-offs of card/board games. Most of these games received solid reviews for what they were.

While true, that's 10 years worth of lack of experience with modern tools and design. On $400k.

As for solid reviews, Novadrone is probably one of the single worst games I've ever played, haha. The board game remakes were mostly solid reviews, but I don't know how you mess up Scrabble.
