Next Car Game Kickstarter

Bugbear Entertainment has launched a Kickstarter for their next car game, which is currently codenamed Next Car Game. This project was announced over a year ago, but they say "many of our fans have asked us for a Kickstarter," though we'll assume they can use the money, and are not just collecting it to humor us. Stretch goals include next generation console editions of the PC game, and they promise a playable sneak peek demo to all backers immediately upon conclusion of the fundraiser. Here's a bit of their pitch:

Next Car Game will be our tenth game, and this time we wanted to work directly with the players instead of working with a publisher. We want to make this game for us and the players, not for the publisher. We strongly believe that it is possible to create the world’s best demolition racing game using crowd-funding, and to do that, we need engage the community and develop the game together with the players. This is something that Kickstarter makes possible: doing the game with the fans gives us a lot more creative freedom, and together we have a chance to create a better game.

Blur is the last original, AAA racing game I can think of and it sold poorly.

The reason Blur sold poorly was because it was rehash of mario kart with realistic cars. There was nothing really new or different to make it stand out.

It really deserved to fail because it brought nothing new. Most games rarely live up to their potential. I can see why this game has trouble getting a publisher, the old school derby car/beat-em up makes the game look ugly. I don't really dig old cars and this game is all about old cars.

There was plenty of space for a Mario Kart-esque title on PC, but it failed because they didn't put any effort into porting or supporting it. They wasted too much time and money on advertising to attack Nintendo.
