The crowdfunding campaign for Scraps, an ambitious multiplayer vehicular combat game being developed as a solo project by New Zealander Bill Borman is nearing its modest NZD$23,000 goal with a week left to go.

Unlike a lot of Kickstarter projects, Scraps has already been greenlit for steam, and boasts a suprisingly playable prototype demo, with Borman seeking the additional capital to help bring the game up to a more retail-worthy state.

The game is described as being inspired by elements of Interstate '76 and LEGO racers, and a desire to combine and push the vehicular combat and construction concepts much further.
I want to be able to build a car that sucks. A car that falls over whenever it corners or only has enough power to fire its guns once a minute. I want each component you place to actually have a function, and have a physical effect. Not to the point of adding needless complexity to the game, like having to wire everything together; just obvious things, like your vehicle being lop-sided if you put all your guns on one side.

All of the above games came out last century. I've been waiting so long for someone to make a game like this that I gave up and I'm making it myself. I'm excited about this project because I finally get to play it.
If that sounds like your thing, watch the trailer below and head over to the Kickstarter page for the full squeeze.
