The lights are on
The teaser campaign for a new Carmageddon game has ended, and the developer of the original PC titles, Stainless Games, has announced that it is releasing Carmageddon: Reincarnation as a downloadable game in 2012.
The U.K. company has acquired the rights to the property and started early production on the game, but is looking for a publishing partner to move into full production.
"Carmageddon has returned to its indie developer roots," says Stainless CEO and co-founder Patrick Buckland, "and the time

I can't wait :)

I can't wait for Twisted Metal, is it bad that I've never heard of Carmageddon until now?
Fingers crossed they package the original title with it.
awesome it should be good ;)
Never heard of this game but will have a look out for it :)
Downloadable? It must really suck.
Played the crap outta this with my brother back in the day on the DOS PC, just hope the reboot lives up to my memories. Also I think downloadable is a good marketing move since vehicular combat games are bit kitschy these days not many people are going to pay $60 but they might pay $15-20 if it's done well.
How about some Rock and Roll Racing?
I'm looking forward to it. Game was a great pick up and play back in the day, and I can just imagine what they can do with today's tech.
