Stainless Games have just announced some stunning news that will no doubt please the faithful Carmageddon fan base, as well as a whole new generation of fans to the racing as a blood sport genre. On the 27th of March 2014, the wait is over, fans will be able to dive into the game that has been requested for going on 17 years now thanks to the blessing that is Steam Early Access.
This Early Access release is a milestone, as it marks the beginning of a new era in the Carmageddon story. Added bonus for Kickstarter backers is that if you put money down to support the development, you will be able to get behind the wheel two weeks before the Steam Early Access release.
Of course the game is still heavily in development, but if you want to be part of the games history and be along for the ride while it’s being made, or maybe your just impatient, then you can get in on the action very shortly.
“It’s brilliant to see our demonic baby rise screaming from the grave,” said Patrick Buckland, co-founder and CEO of Stainless Games and creative genius behind Carmageddon, “This time we could finally do the stuff that we wanted to do 17 years ago. More blood was the main thing. Rivers of livers – that’s what we wanted. Being publisher as well as developer means we get to be stupid. Properly, professionally stupid. And this game is stupider than Jupiter. I mean really silly – but in a good way. Nobody else makes games that make you cry with laughter – but we do. And did I mention the livers?”
Neil ‘Nobby’ Barnden, co-founder, Brand Director and “the other one” behind the original Carmageddon, added: “Blood and laughs. Amazing pile-ups. Awesome PowerUps. Insane… Insanity. The team is fantastic, the love we have for the title shines through, and even though the game is still pre-alpha it’s a bloody hoot to play!”
We can’t wait to see this game in its final form later in 2014, but for now you can enjoy their pre-alple damage tech trailer, which has a pretty unique musical score given the games overall themes of violence, destruction and burning rubber, enjoy!
Thank you Carmageddon for providing us with this information.
