Last summer, Stainless Games announced it was reviving car combat franchise Carmageddon after a decade-long hiatus with a new title called Carmageddon: Reincarnation.
Well, the project is still alive, and Stainless has just thrown it up on Kickstarter.
It seems that after a years-long fight to reacquire the rights to Carmageddon, the company is going the crowd-funding route to ensure that corporate investors and publishers can't interfere with the game they want to make.
We're not just doing this because we saw what happened with Double Fine Adventure, Wasteland 2, and the other oldies around here that are making great comebacks; we were already working on Carmageddon: Reincarnation as a skunkworks project. What happened is that these other projects opened our eyes to the fantastic opportunity that crowd-sourced funding represents.
Backer rewards include a chance to appear as a pedestrian or on a billboard in the game, a Carmageddon first aid kit (real physical thing!), posters, stickers and more.
