Carmageddon Reincarnation splatters onto Steam Early Access

Martin Bigg On March 30, 2014

Racing games don't come more controversial than Carmageddon. In 1997, it was up there with GTA in the video game nasties hall of fame. This was a game that depicted graphic scenes of cars ploughing into pedestrians, so It's difficult to see why.

Things are a little different now in 2014, and Carmageddon's ultra violence just isn't as shocking as it used to be. With this in mind, I was curious to see if the series could stay relevant when Carmageddon Reincarnation was given the greenlight following its successufl Kickstarter campaign a couple of years ago after original developer Stainless Games reacquired the series.

We can find out for ourselves however - as of now, Carmageddon Reincarnation is available to order on Steam Early Access. To celebrate, Stainless Games have released a lovely cheery promotional video that perfectly illustrates their warped, sadistic sense of humour.



If you feel guilty smiling at the sight a deranged driver running over an old lady with a school bus, then please don't. I giggled too.   

The current Early Access build includes three stages all at various stages of completion, along with six series-favourite cars to wreak havoc in, plus "a plethora of mad PowerUps to play with." It can currently be bought on Steam for £20.00, which is cheaper than what the final release will retail for.

Keep in mind that Carmageddon Reincarnation is far from complete, and is still at an alpha stage of development. As such, the graphics look a little rough around the edges with unfinsihed textures, and the game's performance is said to be unstable at the moment.
