Carmageddon is a fond memory for many people around my age. I fondly remember skidding sideways through groups of
people zombies and rejoicing at the satisfying splattering that ensued. Vehicular massacre was never so much fun.
Well, now the original indie developers that made the original and its sequel, Carpocalypse Now, have reacquired the rights to the franchise. Stainless Games have announced that they are working on Carmageddon: Reincarnation for the downloadable market. They hope to release the title in 2012 and are looking for partners to help achieve that goal. No platform is mentioned but the press release mentions Stainless’ experience with multiple platforms and success on the XBL Marketplace.
The studio’s co-founder, Patrick Buckland, is sure of the title’s modern-day relevance:
Carmageddon has returned to its Indie developer roots, and the time is right to bring the game to a new audience. Originally an ambitious title that tested the hardware limits of its day, we’re excited that the game will finally get the showcase it deserves on today’s platforms.
