Carmageddon 1 & 2 devs want your money on kickstarter for a sequel NOW!

#1

http://www.kickstart...n-reincarnation

This is our chance to show our true Carmageddon fandom.
The guys at Stainless can't or don't want to use publishers to fund a new Carmageddon game because the publishers would censor the game big time and put silly deadlines.
So if you are an old carmageddon fan that wants the new sequel to not only exist but actually be awesome too, give these mother fuckers at Stainless $400.000 or at least $15 and they will make the game.
I hope this shit explodes everywhere and Stainless earns 1000000000000 bucks because they sure influenced my childhood A LOT with their 2 carmageddon games which like many other fans, I consider to be legendary!
If you haven't followed them on their relaunched carmageddon.com site, the guys that want to make this new sequel are the exact same dudes that made the first 2 games.
Their publisher from back then, ( SCi ) took away their rights to make a new Carmageddon game and after a few months SCi hired a new lame studio to make a shitty carmageddon sequel called TDR2000 that was almost unanimously hated among the Carmageddon 1 and 2 fans.
The leader of Stainless was so dedicated to keep this cool dev studio alive in the last 15 years and to get back the Carmageddon brand into their hands, that according to him, he actually went through with selling his house so he won't lose the studio and so he could acquire the brand again.

I love their talent and determination and they totally deserve the money so go for it if you are a carmageddon fan and a fan of great indie games made by old school devs.

I wonder how much did they do since 2011 when they first began working on it. At least they could have provided some screens before asking the money to finish the game.

They are not asking for money to finish it, they are asking for money to make it.

Joystiq is already on it and they posted some screenshots of the prealpha they have now.

After pledging for Wasteland 2 I was waiting for Stainless to do this. Carmageddon is the only other thing in the world I'm willing to throw money at because of my faith in the original developers.

I didn't really like Carmageddon, the controls were kinda' meh, and it got boring after awhile. However, I would welcome a new game with online play and mod tools. I wonder what kind of modes of play they'd do for Multiplayer. It has to be better than Rage at least, would be interesting if they top the recent Twisted Metal.

I loved those games. My concern is the game controls. The only way I could enjoy and be good at playing Carmageddon was using my Logitech Wingman Joystick controller. I could map a whole lot of keyboard functions to it. And now my last 2 computers have no Joystick ports so I don't think I would go back to messing with a dozen different keys to play the game.

I haven't even looked for years, are newer USB or some such joysticks being produced?

Only a few hundred thousand models :angry:
Not to mention that 360 and ps3 gamepads also have usb connectors.
The xbox 360 gamepads work natively on windows while the ps3 ones have a community made driver for them so they can also fully work on a pc.

Thanks. It would have to be a joystick because I'm one of the few people on earth that has never owned or played games on a console with it's gamepads.

I'm an old dog that doesn't want to learn new tricks. :angry:

Wait, so you were really referring to the actual joystics that look like this and not about gamepads?

Well then, yeah you can find shitloads of usb joysticks too no problem.
What puzzles me is why would you ever want to play a racing game with a joystick instead of a gamepad, or a keyboard or a steering wheel?
The joysticks are used for flight games which are very rare and far between these days.
The fact that you are used to play racing games with a joystick instead of a gamepad or keyboard, has nothing to do with age as far as I know.
Unless the last driving games you played were on comodore 64 or some arcades...
If you can't play newer racing games without a joystick, I have reason to believe that you just developed a rare and weird taste for playing racing games with a very improper peripheral that wasn't really designed for such game types.
To play racing games with a big ass joystick is almost as unusual as playing an fps game with the steering wheel and pedals.
It can be done but it's very pointless.
Sure the joystick works for racing games like it works for any other game, the problem is that nobody that developed racing games in the last 15 years, cared to tune their games to work properly with a joystick.

Starting today, Stainless announced that if you donate at least 15 bucks on kickstarter, you will get the game in both the DRM FREE version and the Steam Version to play which one you like when it comes out!

Can't beat that. Just pledged $25. This could be the greatest vehicle combat game ever with mod tools.

Myself and both of my brothers all played the game with identical joysticks. We never had problems or complaints. I wouldn't think moving the joystick is really much different than rocking a gamepad with your thumb. I did play a few times with a borrowed steering wheel and pedals. That was cool. Carmageddon is the only PC racing game I have played so you could be right on about a Joystick not working good for other newergames that require more precise control. I wouldn't know.

This was my joystick of choice for Carmageddon, Descent, and Freespace.

Unfortunately, I own the pre-USB version and have no way of connecting it to my PC.



Anyway, it's awesome to see their kickstarter is on track to meet the 400k goal.

Well I already did my part the day it started, pledging $150.99, I can't wait to see this game, Carmageddon was among one of the first games I played, and Stainless getting the rights back and working on a new game is fantastic news..!

I recommend others who actually plan getting them game regardless to throw in at least a $30 pledge, really, might as well pay for it (and an extra copy that comes along with it) now and get some extras, instead of inevitably paying for it later anyway when it's released, you know you need want to..!

Ha, wtf. I linked to a smaller thumbnail and it keeps resizing to a huge-mongous version. Fixed.

Speaking of controls (assuming we might just discuss the game in general here, too)
I wonder if the game will stick to the old classic num-pad controls for the PC keyboard... Personally I wouldn't mind, but of course customizable controls would be best, just to suit your own style of controls..!

You will be able to customize your controls and it will even support xbox 360 gamepad, it's confirmed!

Also if the kickstarter can reach 600.000 bucks instead of 400.000 they will also release the game on Mac and Linux!

Carmageddon and its expansion pack Carmageddon: Plat Pack are coming soon on gog.com ..!

Additionally, one of the new $25 tiers over at Carmageddon Reincarnation's Kickstarter page, you can get those games for free over at gog.com ..! Well... Technically you aren't... Since you are still paying a pledge for their project, but all for the better for the new game, plus you get the previous rewards as well..!

Either that, or you can simply buy them from gog.com when it's been released there..!
The news over at Good Old Games:

This pleases me. I've never been able to get the original Carmageddon running correctly again on a modern OS. Hopefully the digital re-release fixes that.

Was the original Carmageddon DOS based?

It certainly was.

I did read that there was a Windows port. Since I cannot run anything on Dos without Dosbox crashing I hope GOG gives us an optimized Windows version without Dosbox launchers.

Logitech Attack 3, 11 button usb joystick for $20 at most Best Buy stores.

Radio Shack sells a 15 pin to usb adaptor so you don't need to use the old midi/game controller port found on older pc's and audio sound cards.

Kickstater donators also get a free download of Camageddon 1 on iOS as a thanks for contributing. It's a slightly more upgraded version, wouldn't say it was HD, but it does look slightly improved over the original release.

I was considering getting a new phone that is able to run that..!

Already wanted a new phone for a while, but this is more so of a reason to get one isn't it..? :)
Yeah it does look improved, the cars look all shiny and stuff, I'm honestly kind of missing the old pixelated graphics, but I don't mind the update, and it doesn't seem like much else has changed at all, the physics are all the same ..!

I hope Splat Pack will eventually become part of this mobile release, it doesn't seem to be at the moment anyway...
