Next Car Game Kickstarter Axed; Preorder Sneak Peek Released

Bugbear Entertainment announces they have killed off the Kickstarter for Next Car Game, saying though it "attracted tremendous enthusiasm," it was not going to hit its $350K goal, as it was cancelled a bit short of the $82K mark. Noting that "Finns are not used to giving up so easily," they announce they are proceeding with a preorder campaign to support the demolition derby game's continued development, and they are offering a playable "technology sneak peek" from the game to all those who preorder. Here's word:
The sneak peek features a playground that we use internally to test various features various like car damage and environment destruction. The best thing about it is that you will get a chance to have fun and wreak havoc with an amazing 24 cars!

In the full game the action will take place on many locations, including a number of race tracks and derby arenas. We're also going to improve the gameplay and technology on many fronts such as car damage and handling, and our Early Access customers will get a chance to experience these improvements first-hand during the Early Access phase!
