Those of you who grew up playing PC games in the late 90′s and early 2000′s will no doubt recall the “points for pedestrians” series of games called Carmageddon.  The cartoonishly violent games which had players purposefully driving around and crashing into random folks was a pretty big deal when it was first released. Now, the developers (Stainless Games) have announced that they will revive the original classic title and release it on Android and iOS later this summer.

A YouTube trailer (below) is already online, teasing 2:00 minutes worth of headbanging speed metal crashes and features.

  • The game is a conversion of the original Carmageddon PC game, with improved game engine and graphics.
  • A wide selection of touch control methods.
  • Intuitive gesture system allowing repair and recovery of the player vehicle in game.
  • Action Replay allowing players to save a movie and upload it to YouTube.

“To get Carmageddon working on these new devices, and looking the best it’s ever looked, is just fantastic.  And what’s more, I’m now finally able to play Carmageddon on the toilet!”  said Stainless co-founder and Executive Director Neil Barnden.

“Carmageddon on a mobile is the most fun you can have with your thumbs,” said Patrick Buckland, co-founder of Stainless Games.  “And as a way of saying THANKS to our fantastic Kickstarter Backers for their amazing support, we’re going to launch Carmageddon on the App Store FREE for the first 24 hours!”

“Always remember – look both ways before crossing…” he added, “Particularly if you’re playing Carmageddon on your mobile at the same time…”

Carmageddon will be made available to download on app stores across the globe this summer.

Pledges for the new game, Carmageddon: Reincarnation, on PC are still rising, with it looking likely the studio will make its first “stretch goal” of $600,000 (to fund Mac and Linux versions of the game), and head on towards the further stretch goals for special PratCam and Co-Op Multiplayer features to be added. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stainlessgames/carmageddon-reincarnation
