Stainless Games today announced a partnership with digital distributor GOG.com. Together they are pleased to announce the return to Windows PC of the original “Points for Pedestrians” driving game ‘Carmageddon’ (plus its add-on pack, ‘The Splat Pack’) in the near future.
Neil Barnden, Stainless co-founder and Executive Director on Carmageddon: Reincarnation said:
“Since we got the rights to Carmageddon back, we’ve been hearing from the community how much they’d love to be able to play the original games again, on a modern Windows PC. We’ve been hearing this message even louder since launching our Kickstarter campaign to help fund our next title in the series, Carmageddon: Reincarnation. The message from the gaming community is loud and clear: Give us something to play, while we wait for the new Carmageddon! So, that’s exactly what we’ve done.”
Trevor Longino, Head of Marketing and PR at GOG.com, added:
“Many of us at GOG.com are big fans of the Carmageddon franchise, and the Carmageddon games are perfect examples of the kind of classic games that we love to bring to our gamers: great gameplay, tons of fun, and a unique experience. Being able to help support the developers by providing backers with copies of this classic game was just icing on the cake for us”.
Patrick Buckland, Stainless CEO concluded:
“Thanks to our friends at GOG.com, the streets of Bleak City will once again echo to the screams of little old ladies shrieking, “I was in the war!” as they (and their walking frames) go sailing through the air.”
Awesome, right? Carmageddon is still highly enjoyable and we are sure that most of you will want to replay it. Carmageddon is currently undergoing preparation at the hands of GOG.com’s expert contentologists, and will be added to the catalog as soon as possible. Let’s just hope that the GOG version will be based on the GLIDE patched version of the original Carmageddon game.
