Remember, remember the 6th of Julember. For that is the date that the two-day Rezzed game show, orchestrated by Eurogamer with lots of help from the nerds at Rock, Paper, Shotgun, kicks off in my current home town of Brighton, UK. It’s also my girlfriend’s birthday, which means I won’t be at the show until Saturday July 7th. And that I will very sadly miss the most recently-announced session, Stainless Games talking about how they’re bringing back Carmageddon with the forthcoming Reincarnation, and how/why they’re using Kickstarter to do it. A public chat about crowdsourced game funding only makes sense in these rapid-fire Kickstarted times.
Production director Ben Gunstone will take the mic, in just one of many fascinating and very much PC-centric events planned. Already confirmed: the Creative Assembly (Total War) and the Indie Stone (Project Zomboid). More will be revealed very soon! And I don’t use that exclamation mark lightly, I can assure you.
Carmageddon Reincarnation currently sits at just shy $300,000 of its desired $400,000, with 16 days left to go before funding closes. Might well come down to a photo finish, that one.
