Carmageddon Reincarnation obliterates 400k Kickstarter target

You may remember we reported on Stainless Games seeking Kickstarter funding for Carmageddon Reincarnation, the planned reboot for the controversial car combat series. 

With ten days to spare, their target of $400k has now been reached meaning that, if everything goes according to plan, we should now see the project finished for a February 2012 release, with console versions to follow later in the year. Pledgers will receive full access to builds of the game as they are released in the same vein as Project CARS, along with additional rewards.

To celebrate the achievement, Stainless posted a video of a slightly delerious developer's reaction: 



It also seems that Stainless have big plans for the Carmageddon series in the future. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, co-founder Neil Barnden revealed that Carmageddon Reincarnation will act as a reboot for the original game, but their ultimate game is to create an "all bells and whistles" triple-A release.

"We don't feel that we have the time - or, we've scheduled, in terms of features for this game - for it to be a lot more than a reboot of the original. That's because that with some concessions to modern day gaming, such as achievements and some additional challenges, we really feel that the original gameplay stands up to being reintroduced to the gaming community - to let them have the harmless fun and various ways of completing the goals in the game that the original had."

Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.

Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.

Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.

Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.

Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
