    Yeah the N64 version sucked. PC version all the way.

    'Carmageddon: Reincarnation' seeks Kickstarter funding

    Carmageddon: Reincarnation, an independently developed revival of the violent automotive action franchise which was announced last year, is now seeking Kickstarter backing to complete development.

    Developer Stainless Games has been silent about the game's progress since announcing it last June. Today, the studio launched a one-month Kickstarter campaign to raise $400,000 to help payroll its 50 or so employees as they finish work on the title.

    Stainless, the developer of the original Carmageddon in 1997, acquired the rights for the title from Square Enix last year — a process which apparently cost the developer a large chunk of its starting capital.

    "We're a modest-sized indie developer," the Kickstarter description reads, "and we've already invested well over a third of a million dollars getting the rights back and beginning design and prototyping. This represents all of our profits from our other work — but we think it's worth it."

    The Kickstarter page promises the return of "everything that made the original games such a blast to play," with a few more modern additions, like better online multiplayer offerings, and ragdoll physics for the helpless, point-filled pedestrians players will be massacring. Also, if you feel like donating $1,000, you can be scanned into the game to become one of those pedestrians.

    The first playable build of the title will be available February 2013, and will be distributed to anyone who donates $15 or more. Check out the video for Stainless Games' plea for your financial support.

    The BBC are now running the story:
    BBC News - Carmageddon seeks Kickstarter cash comeback

    Expect something self-righteous and outraged from the Daily Wail soon.

    I must top up my card this weekend and donate so I can get it when it hits beta!

    Wish I had $1k to splash on it, then everyone could spend their time running me over!
