David Jaffe-linked Motorgun launches crowd-funding

Autoduel, the PC car combat game that recently boasted David Jaffe as an adviser, has rebranded itself and started up crowd-funding. Now titled "Motorgun," it's seeking $650,000.

The Kickstarter campaign has gotten just over $13,000 so far, with 31 days yet to go. In addition to Jaffe's advisory role, developer Pixelbionic has also signed on Gears of War and Unreal Tournament designer Lee Perry to create an arena as one of the stretch goals. The team already includes various veteran game designers from classic PC games like Wolfenstein, Redneck Rampage, and Interstate '76 and Interstate '82.

"We've been working hard to ready our Kickstarter launch of MotorGun, which we are beyond ecstatic about," said Pixelbionic Co-founder and President Mike Arkin. "Maxx and I have assembled an all-star team who share our creative vision for an awesome car combat game. However, the fate of MotorGun relies on the commitment and support of fans looking for something special, so we're looking forward to the reception now that we're live."
