Carmageddon: Reincarnation
Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter Wants $400,000
Written By
View author's profile

UK developer Stainless Games is back doing what it does best: making a Carmageddon game. Carmageddon: Reincarnation is set to bring back Max Damage, after the original Carmageddon and Carmageddon: Carpocalypse Now titles, but the studio behind the games, wants your help to give the project an extra boost.

Consequently, Stainless has launched what a lot of indie devs have been using to help champion their games: a Kickstarter fund that enables you to get behind the game as a financial backer. There's over 5000 backers for Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Kickstarter already, but extra support could potentially add more bells and whistles to the game.

Could that potentially include a release for Carmageddon: Reincarnation on the Xbox Live Arcade? We'd suggest pestering the living crap out of Stainless Games over on their Kickstarter page to bring the game to XBLA. There's really no excuse if they manage to raise extra funds, right? Right?! Carmageddon: Reincarnation is aiming for a February 2013 release.

[Thanks, Dennis]

So Kickstarter holds on to the money and if enough is made they give it to the Devs to make a game. If not enough is made them they return it to the original people who stuck the money in?

That sounds fairly decent actually. I'd heard of it before but never read about what it actually is or how it works.

That much isn't nothing for a kickstarter.

If the game has enough fans it could be raised in no time.

The Yogscast raised over half a million in a month for Yogventures. It's all about fan base.

@2 Agreed. It was a massively one dimensional game back in the 90s, why bother bringing it back now?

@5 Exactly. Even if they give the money back at the end they have still massively profited from the interest in the meantime. Very cynical.

@6 Gooch.

@10 That makes it even worse. Clever on their part though - they profit no matter what.

I read an article about this yesterday that said anyone who pledged a $1000 would be featured in the game. So even game development has now gone all corporate bollocks and pandering to the rich. If the concept was good enough they wouldn't need to beg. In it's day Carmageddon was controversial but now seems very lame compared to games that followed. It was changed numerous times to please the censors, removing human pedestrians and replacing them with Zombies. The same censors would probably have had a heart attack if Saint's Row or Left 4 Dead had fallen on their desks, but each of these games should give a nod Carmageddon's way. Can't help but feel it will only be a huge disappointment, pretty much akin to the recent Syndicate rehash. Some games should just stay a fond memory.

Wow, alot of poor knee-jerk reaction to this (and uneducated children)...here how it is.....

You pledge money in return for something (those that have bothered to read the link would know this) eg on the lowest reward tier, you donate $15 (£9.30) and when the game is released you get a copy of the game, not too shabby eh?

And there are many tiers of incentives to how much you pay and the reward in return. Including featuring in the game itself as a pedestrian to be ran over, plotting parts of the environments, etc...(note that minecraft creator has himself donated to this game as he is a fan)

The game is already in early developement but needs the extra funds to publish keep the high quality going. on otherwords NO EVIL PUBLISHER SUCH AS ACTIVISION ETC TELLING THE GAME COMPANY WHAT TO DO.

Also, those who have never heard of Carmageddon, have a lot to thank for it. In 1996 it was a groundbreaking game that set the standard for many games to come. Especially racing games (full 3d environments, active replays). Not games to this day can match the free roam fun and carnage it has to offer. Both Carmageddon 1 (1996) and Carmageedon 2 (1998) still have one the the best damage physics to date.

Even though the last game created by stainless in 1998 (console ports and TDR2000 were created by other studios but they were awful) it still has a HUGE cult following who have been praying for this.

Its going to be good.

Normally I'd be against anything Kickstarter related but however, a new Carmageddon game is something I would very much LOVE to see or play, rather. I had endless amounts of fun playing it way back when, so I'd definitely donate a certain sum of money for this to happen.

Carmageddon was one of those games i realy loved to play, even it hadn,t much storywise or a huge difference gameplaywise, but it had something that made me wanted it to play it again and again, and it was one of the first games that had a cut version in germany, instead of driving over peasants they where removed and replaced by...robots.
The insane roads and tracks you where driving on and all filled with boosters and other odd and funny stuff, back then it was something totaly new and it stired up some discussions if the game wasn,t to brutal. Nowadays we probly would laugh and there so much other games out there.
But i woudn,t mind another Carmageddon just because i can relive some old gamermemories, but i def woudn,t pay for a remake i think they just have to follow the stream and do what other devs doing just making the game and advertising enough and making big money after.

@18 - yes, it was groundbreaking, if you can be bothered to read into it, with old game reviews etc, you will see for yourself. ps, twisted metal is a car-gun game, nothing like carmageedon. Also, the first builds of Carmagedden preceed any twisted metal game. - Get your facts right please.

@20 - it is fact, i love car games, i love crashing cars and although games are much prettier these days, actual crashing physics and mechanics are hard to match with a 14 year old game. Not sure why you would choose to respond in a childish way?

@23 - Depending on how much you pledge, you get at least 1 free copy via steam

@29 I replied in such a manner as I could only imagine you were taking the absolute piss with that comment.

The damage physics on both Carmageddon games were absurd at the time, never mind when compared with games made 10-15 years later.

I understand you hold a candle for them both, but Forza? Burnout? GT5 (after the patch)?

@unicorn carmageddon lover.

Both twisted metal and carmageddon have both been quoted as taking inspiration from the film death race. Carmageddon was also 3 years after twisted metal so you would expect it to build on it.

Just because you clearly get an erection for something don’t start running your mouth and forcing yourself on people like john Travolta at a massage parlour.

Those factualy accurate enough for you Donkey??

@38 - 2 years. Also, im not telling anyone to loke anything. Just merely setting my misinformed friends and keyboard warriors straight :) I do have to correct some dates carma 1 - 1997, carma 2 - 1999. Twisted metal 1995. But as stated carmageddon was first put in motion in 93/94 and was originally meant to be named after the old death race 2000 film.

Some of you need to actually READ the link. $15 donation gets you a free copy. There's not double charging -_- Someone has already taken 1 of the 3 highest donation rewards, and will be an actual character in-game.

On top of getting a copy for $15, everytime the game is updated/re-released you get another free copy.

If you're a fan, you should chip in $15.

fuck don't you love it when people who played the shitty port of carmageddon 3 and have played the twisted metal series come along to a thread like this....in fact it's always the case... then you get some company mentions a new feature, someone else says but our game had that first


then i come along and say, bollocks, some PC game had it about 10 years before your game, now GTFO n1b!



carmageddon was a great game, racing & missions, sure it was limited, but rightly so, it was mostly a racing game.


and i love the fact that so many people think this is a major scam by another company just to make profit on the interest, fuck off and hide where you weer in the first place, it is a way for companies who don't want a cunt like EA / ACTI barking orders at what they can & cant do in their game to gather initial funding for production costs

but as most of you clowns only buy the same game, even if they did you wouldn't buy it


i'll definately consider this, have to wait til i get paid, but i loved the original, and #2....3 was a bit shit though i admit that

Wow so much hate. If you don't want to fund it, then don't but please try to make an informed decision about stuff before yelling.

#58, you hit the nail on the head.

I don't see how Kickstarter is anything but a positive thing. Publishers don't want to take a chance on a game, so the makers of the game ask people if they want this game. People pay, get the game (yes, $15 will get you the game). If not enough people give a shit, the game doesn't get made. How is this a bad thing?

@11 the name kinds of gives away what the game is about. And only people who are big fans or kickstarter browsers will have heard of "this" game. I heard of the original and sequel but had not heard of "this" game until I read the headline.

Good job the whole internet isn't full of people telling everyone what they haven't heard of.

There is no interest being made on your pledges. Your card isn't charged until the project meets its goal. If a project fails to meet its goal in the stayed time no money switches hands at any level.

Kickstarter is absolutely terrific for larger-scale "indie" game developers. I mean, didn't SEGA say they'd make Shenmue 3 if other people funded it? THAT's something to put on Kickstarter. And check out Double Fine. They didn't even have a name or idea, just "give us cash, we'll make a game" and we raised a million US dollars for them! The idea that we, the consumer, can play such a vital role in making sure we get the content we want and the developers can finish making a product they can be proud of is truly remarkable and a sign that e-commerce is great and indeed part of video gaming's future.

That said, sadly, it's also a place for lazy companies to ask for way too much money to make games of a low caliber and possibly get away with it if we choose to be charitable. $400k for an XBLA Carmageddon? Hahaha, no way. I'm sure know a few people in Cali that'd make an XBLIG version of that and sell it for $2 a pop.

All these post saying it was in production before twisted metal, They still had 2-3 years to add stuff that twisted metal thought about and they didn't. So really both are really stealing from each other as everything in world is. Everything is an idea and everyone uses ideas from others to make stuff better. Who really cares?

Sigh, another one......

......if you can actually read, like some others are struggling with....the original games with high ratings and high sales (multi millions sales) were made by stainless, who are making the new one.

The ones that were rubbish, were made by other developers after the publisher took it away from stainless.

Arron114 must be a very bitter person.

On topic- I still haven't formed an opinion on the whole Kickstarter craze. I see the advantages of it allowing smaller games that get made that otherwise wouldn't. The problem I see is what happens when a game get a lot of money from this and then is canceled? Do the people at that point get their money back or are they sol?

You know you want to pledge Arron, £9.30 and it is yours in Feb ;)

Also i missed this off on th FAQ....XBLA is a target for Carmageddon....

What are your plans for other platforms if you exceed your goal?

We plan to produce a Mac OSX version shortly after the PC release, with Xbox 360 and PS3 following as soon as possible afterwards. (And on to even more platforms, as funds and time allow...)

"It was groundbreaking? dont make me laugh it was a complete rip off of Twisted metal.

Huge cult following? Is that not an oxymoron?

Are you working for these cats?

Both twisted metal and carmageddon have both been quoted as taking inspiration from the film death race. Carmageddon was also 3 years after twisted metal so you would expect it to build on it. "


Ok let's ridicule this ignorant and arrogant being.
First of, Carmageddon was released 2 years after the first Twisted Metal.

Twisted Metal was released in 1995, Carmageddon was released in 1997.

Yes it "builded on it". As far as the destructive enviroment goes especially. You could even play Twisted Metal 3 and 4 and you still wouldn't see the cars getting realistic damage. Cars were just moving rocks that if given a certain amount of damage they would get destroyed, and the only indication was a few black spots on the car. Those games were released in 1998 and 1999 respectively.

Where as Carmageddon 2, had awesome physics, and you could practically dismember the whole enemy car, given that it's consitency provided that priviledge (you could cut a car in two, you could smash it, you could smash glasses or tires, you could SHAPE IT THE WAY YOU WANTED IT. Hell, you can even cut a bus on 3 dimensions.)

Yes, both games took inspiration from Movies, and real life derbies and other games. By the way you forgot to mention Destruction Derby.

And it WAS groundbreaking because you could run over people and dismember human parts. This was FUN! No other game had that, and that's what it made it groundbreaking. Paved the way for every future game that had humans in it (including GTA).

And i only speak for myself by saying that : I don't work for these "cats".
I just saw your posts (full of half-truths and dirt) and i chose to set things straight.


Now, i'm certain those that haven't played the game will be skeptic and say that it's too immature. Maybe it is, but i haven't had more fun playing a racing game ever. Hell, it's in my top 3 list of best games.
Back in the day, when media were raging towards the game (being too violent etc), a cousin came to visit me and i asked if she ever played the game. She said that she knew about the game from the news and didn't like the idea.
I asked her to try it for one turn, and she was BLOWN AWAY by the gameplay. "You can't judge a game by some news report.You have to play it" were her exact words. Which is true, eh?

Few more things.

"So now instead of just playing them we are investing to have them made?Do I need to hire a broker? "

With 15$, you fund the game, help it come alive, get a digital copy when it is released and get EVERY update/patch/dlc.

Kickstarter backers of $15 and above will receive Release #1 plus all subsequent releases.
It writes it on the site.

"lol, now developers are basically asking us to pre-pay for arcade games? Yeah, that'll get you far..."

Arcade games?
