Carmageddon for Linux needs another 70 grand

By - | Views: 9,008
The Kickstarter for Carmageddon: Reincarnation quickly reached the funding goal of $400 000. Unfortunately the bar for Linux and Mac ports of the game was set considerably higher, at $600 000. Now, with about two days left it looks to be a close shave if that goal is to be reached.



If the stretch goal isn't reached all might not be lost. In a recent AMA on Reddit the developers, Stainless, explained that they plan to continue to take pre-orders via Paypal and add this towards the total sum. They also mentioned that they see this as an opportunity to go cross-platform for other titles based on the same technology. Perhaps funding Carmageddon should be seen as less of chance to get a native vehicular manslaughter sim and more of an opportunity to set a company on the right cross-platform path?

One thing I never understood but was okay with in Twisted Metal. If there's a freakin' car deathmatch going on in a carnival or such, evacuate!

It would actually be kind of cool if the pedestrians started to fight against the racers, planting traps etc. like in [URL='http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072856/']Death Race 2000[/URL].
