Ultraviolence fans, rejoice! Stainless Games has passed the $400,000 Kickstarter goal for Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Sunday, so its splatfest of a racer shall indeed be made.

With nine days left to go, the Kickstarter campaign has raised over $420,000 in pledges. Stainless has said that money beyond the target would be used to expand the game, and perhaps hit extra platforms.

Pledging at least $15 will get you a downloadable copy of Reincarnation on PC once it's done, while $25 also gets you the upcoming GOG re-release of the original Carmageddon.

Here's Stainless co-founder Neil Barnden having a little celebration yesterday:

      I made an exception because I loved Carmageddon and put down 15 dollars for this, my first Kickstarter. To be honest, until I start seeing some finished games, I'm extremely skeptical towards the whole concept. I'm guessing half the games funded will never be released, and those that are, will mostly suck. I'm just not convinced that the AAA-game makers which it takes to produce a quality product are the ones who needed crowd sourcing to get things started.

        Cards Against Humanity was created by Kickstarter.

        END. OF. THREAD.

          If Carmageddon ends up being a cards game, I'm going to be very very disappointed.

            Are you sidestepping admitting you haven't played Cards Against Humanity??

          That sounds hilarious. It also goes for £110 on Amazon. :( Time to find a local printer!

              I've got a board game/booze weekend ahead. Kids will be present though so we'll have to give this a shot once they're asleep!

      Im not very familiar with exactly how the funds are acquired. When a "goal" is met, such as in this case, the money is actually pledged and the developer has to wait and hope that said funds are sent out by those who pledged a certain amount. Is this correct? If so, whats the general percentage of those that keep their promise vs those who don't?

      So happy! It's the only Kickstarter project I've pledged towards :)

      I felt obligated since I got so damn much enjoyment out of that original demos (Carmaggedon 1 & 2) and never bought the games.

        Well you'll be getting the original and the kinda neat splat pack from GoG too. Yay!

      Only Kickstarter i've backed. Hell i referenced Carmageddon in my wedding speech, and my family comes from the same island as the developers. It was the least i could do.
