Earlier in the year, Stainless Games -- and indie studio comprised of the creators of Carmageddon -- revealed that they had managed to secure the rights of the brutal racing franchise back from publisher Square Enix and were working on a brand-new game, aptly titled Carmageddon: Reincarnation.
The 50 person indie studio has reportedly invested "over a third of a million dollars" into the game so far, but will need more scratch to get the game over the blood-stained finish line. So the obvious answer following all the other recent indie success of course, is a Kickstarter campaign.
Now we have our baby back we really don’t want to have any creative control of the new game wrestled from us by a corporate investor, a publisher, or space aliens trying to subvert humanity using subliminal messaging in video games. We want to make sure that the game we make is the game that we (and Carmageddon’s fans, and a new generation of Carmageddon fans who don’t even know they want it yet) want to play.
With 29 days remaining, the fund has already raised $70,000 of its $400,000 goal and at this rate looks very likely to blitz that.
