Carmageddon: Reincarnation Reaps $3.5 Million, Goes Next-Gen

Stainless Games has completed its Kickstarter campaign for Carmageddon: Reincarnation, managing to generate a most respectable $625,000, having set a target of $400,000. This will help fund the development and launch of the Carmageddon return, which will now be heading to 'next-generation platforms.'

Yet, thanks to backer, Bullfrog Productions founder and Stainless Games shareholder, Les Edgar, Carmageddon: Reincarnation has received a further $3.5 million in funding. “I have always had a great belief in Stainless, and I really admire their continued success as one of the leading indie dev studios. The Carmageddon name is one we all want to see rise again, and I know that in the hands of its original creators, we’re bound to get the best out of the brand.” said Edgar. “I’m delighted to be on board and helping make the project happen.”

“We are delighted to have fully funded Carmageddon: Reincarnation without having to go outside of the collective of our own company, shareholders and fans. It allows us to maintain a true independence and creative control whilst not having to compromise quality or content by budgetary constraints. ” said Patrick Buckland, CEO and Co-Founder of Stainless Games. “For an independent, privately owned company to achieve this, is a testament to our strength and to the loyalty of our fans.”

Carmageddon: Reincarnation is currently in development at Stainless Games, and could presumably be heading to the next-generation Xbox, most likely as a downloadable title. A release date has not yet been confirmed.

One of worst games ever made that I played too much on Nintendo 64 and enjoyed hell out of it when Carmageddon 64 released and I look forward new one if they project developing it. I will get it because game is fun and crazy so I get new Carmageddon. :)

Bring it on and more crazy game like that!!!

Their kickstarted page says 625,000 raised, where's the 3.5million figure coming from? Am I missing something :s?

@9

I had to do some digging as x360a didn't use a source, and in fact, this article is very misleading.

The original I believe can be found here: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2013-03-20-stainless-secures-USD3-5m-for-next-gen-carmageddon-reincarnation

So they made $625,143 via kickstarter. But according to that article, an ADDITIONAL $3.5 Million has secured courtesy of Les Edgar, founder of Bullfrog games, former VP of Electronic Arts' European studios and shareholder in Stainless Games.

You are better off reading that article.

Hopefully it doesn't have ridiculously shitty draw distances like the PS1 game had. Even as a non-cynical kid I could see that was some shitty game making right there.

@1: Ainsley Harriott needs to see a doctor, he's looking pretty pale...

@18

That was a bad port by a 3rd party dev, same for the N64 version

Original games were PC based and top of the range (at the time) graphics and engines.
