The long awaited re-boot of the cult hit Carmageddon is set to make a return with Carmageddon: Reincarnation, and in a strange turn of events, the Isle of Wight based developers have taken to Kickstarter to gather together the last funding required to bring the game to life.
The campaign is now live, and the team of eccentrics are looking to raise a minimum of $400,000 to fund the newest title in the much loved franchise.
“Raising the funds through Kickstarter will mean that we keep complete control of the project and can make the game we know everyone wants to play — with no EVIL corporate investor or publisher telling us that we can’t run over old ladies or set fire to cows,” said Patrick Buckland, founder and CEO of Stainless Games.
Whilst you wont be seeing any physical copies of Reincarnation, there are a massive selection of rewards including the chance to appear in the game, physical objects such as 'splatted grannies' and first aid kits or if you just want a copy of the game on release, just pledge a mere $15.
Carmageddon: Reincarnation is an attempt to bring everything that made the original fun, to the current generation of gaming by reprising the classic environments, cars, drivers, and powerups from the original games, plus a lot of new stuff, and nothing like TDR!
You can pledge towards the Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter project now for the next 27 days that is being developed exclusively for digital download and is set for delivery Feb 2013.
