Carmageddon: Reincarnation
Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter Wants $400,000

UK developer Stainless Games is back doing what it does best: making a Carmageddon game. Carmageddon: Reincarnation is set to bring back Max Damage, after the original Carmageddon and Carmageddon: Carpocalypse Now titles, but the studio behind the games, wants your help to give the project an extra boost.

Consequently, Stainless has launched what a lot of indie devs have been using to help champion their games: a Kickstarter fund that enables you to get behind the game as a financial backer. There's over 5000 backers for Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Kickstarter already, but extra support could potentially add more bells and whistles to the game.

Could that potentially include a release for Carmageddon: Reincarnation on the PlayStation Network? We'd suggest pestering the living crap out of Stainless Games over on their Kickstarter page to bring the game to PSN. There's really no excuse if they manage to raise extra funds, right? Right?! Carmageddon: Reincarnation is aiming for a February 2013 release.

[Thanks, Dennis]

Oh helll yeah! I loved these games on pc. The damage was incredible. Looks like ill be signing up to kickstarter. I'll throw $20 in their direction as long as I can leave a note with my donation requesting a PSN release.

I loved the original too, but I would rather invest money on fresh ideas. Production-line sequels and exhuming franchises like Duke Nukem are killing proper creativity. Good luck to them, but this won't get to PSN and won't be getting any of my money.

So being a PS3 gamer investing in a game what might turn out to be PC only, bad investment in my opinion.

What would investors get out if game anyway?

This should work Wasteland 2 was asking for $900k and they hit 2.9million dollars to fund the game. Lots of developers have gone this route. Great idea

Might be a good idea if they gave you something but i doubt it you would donate then you pay for the game and then pay for the inevitable dlc imo without some kind of gift or promis with a donation like thia its just a new way to rip off consumer's

Who'd buy a game from a company that's never heard of a bank?

In the past things like this have given donaters incentives for doing so, depending on how much is donated (Minecraft is a recent example). Stuff like early access, exclusive content/DLC, being added to the credits; even seen tee shirts/posters etc been given to people who donate over so much.

If it's a project you believe in and actually really want to see, then it's nice to know that you've been a part of it somehow.

And as for the bitching about online passes etc, how many PSN games do you know that require them?

Personally I probably won't be contributing, I was never that into Carmageddon back in the day and as such not that fussed about a new version, but it's nice to see stuff like this happening more often for the people who are interested in it.

Also it says what you get on their kickstarter.

All of $15 and above get you a copy of the game. So it's more like a preorder than anything.

I just hope all the recent Carma-clones (Armageddon Riders, Blood Drive, MS: Apocalypse etc) don't wear thin on us all before Carmageddon: Reincarnation's launch date.

I'd rather help fund another Double Fine game. Twisted Metal kills all other competition in this arena.
