Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter Update

The Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter Page now offers this video stressing that this fundraiser will end on Tuesday, having raised over 600 percent of its $400,000 goal. They are not taking their foot off the gas pedal, though, as they now offer t-shirts as an additional incentive to contribute to this project, saying "the more money we have, the more awesome we can make the game [and] the more people we can put on it." Tim also reveals the collector's edition will come in a box made of actual American cardboard.

First Carmageddon: Reincarnation Screenshots

The Carmageddon Website offers an "eyes on" look at redesign of the Eagle, of one of the vehicles for Carmageddon: Reincarnation, the upcoming motoring mayhem remake.
