Carmageddon Is Reincarnated

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 is right to bring the game to a new audience.”

No details are being revealed about the gameplay, but according to Neil Barnden, fellow co-founder and executive director, “Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success. All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt.”
