Carmageddon coder seeks gamers' cash for revamp

Driving licence to kill

Security for virtualized datacentres

Fans of 1990s gore-racer Carmageddon had their engines heated up this week when developer Stainless Games called for public funding to help it reincarnate the franchise.

The team's KickStarter campaign went live today, asking for a minimum of $400,000 (£248,154) which will be used to develop Carmageddon: Reincarnation without the strict oversight of "evil" publishers.

This means there will be no restrictions on running over old ladies or setting fire to cows, apparently.

Carmageddon: Reincarnation

Carmageddon Reincarnation encapsulates all that is wrong – and therefore right - with video games. We will stay true to Carmageddon’s roots while adding a ton more over-the-top, outrageous content,” pledged Stainless co-founder Neil ‘Nobby’ Barnden.

As usual, backers receive different rewards depending on how much they cough up. This ranges from credits and free copies, to an appearance as a pedestrian in the game itself.

At the time of writing, Stainless Games had already raised roughly a quarter of its goal. Just 28 days to go, lads.

For further information, check out the Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter page. If all goes to plan, we should be causing mayhem on the roads again by February 2013. ®
