Carmageddon Getting Kickstarted

It seems that, thanks to Kickstarter, the 1997 PC controversy-fest that was Carmageddon will be getting a shot of adrenalin to the heart.  The developer of the original games, Stainless, have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for Carmageddon: Reincarnation after finally acquiring the rights to their infamous title, and have gone for the throat with a humourous and unapologetically full-on assault for funding.

The original Carmageddon was a free-form driving game oozing dark humour, in which your aim was the opposite of most titles (where you are better off avoiding pedestrians).  In Carmageddon, however, that doddering granny means points, as does every other person or bovine within reach of your squealing tyres.

Promising a reinvigorated single player mode, with a host of new features to compliment the original, revamped gameplay, Stainless are also bringing a multiplayer mode to the party for some nasty online carnage.

Stainless’s current finding target for Carmageddon: Reincarnation is $400,000 and it currently has 28 days to run.  In our view, here at GLHQ, it has to be worth opening your wallet for, even if it is just to hear the Daily Mail’s scream of rage at this ‘sick filth’.

    God, I loved Carmageddon… had it on PC and PS1 (was fun as a little kid mowing down everyone with a steering wheel). Also had that expansion “Splat Pack”, and I think I recall a pretty bland sequel “Carpocalypse” or something?
