And Stainless Games is the next developer to jump on the Kickstarter bandwagon. Stainless Games started a Kickstarter campaign for Carmageddon: Reincarnation. Carmageddon: Reincarnation will be a re-boot of everything that made the original games such a blast to play. The new game will be inspired by the classic environments, cars, drivers and power-ups from the original, but dragged screaming and kicking into the current state of the rendered art. And of course, there will be a bunch of brand new stuff too, including true rag-doll pedestrians and physics-based power-ups.
The single player game will be brilliant too, thanks to demented opponents with demented A.I. brains made from demented code written by demented programmers and as you may have guessed, there will be a multiplayer mode.
Players will be able to post their clips on YouTube and other such sites. And of course Stainless Games will be embracing the Social Media revolution and linking up to players’ Facebooks and Twitters with in-game integration so ‘they can disturb they parents without even leaving the game‘.
Carmageddon: Reincarnation will support mods, as well as Action Replay (a beloved feature from the previous Carmageddon games), and is based on an in-house game engine.
Those interested can back this project up by visiting its Kickstarter page. The game needs $400K USD in order to be funded and if they succeed, they’ll be able to release this racer in February 2013.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
