Smash! Bash! Cash! THQ Nordic buy Carmageddon

In their ongoing mission to own PC gaming 1992-2006, publishers THQ Nordic are now buying the intellectual property rights to Carmageddon. Like when they bought Alone In The Dark earlier this year, THQ Nordic (who even bought the "THQ" half of their name) say part of their ownership will, naturally, involve thinking about maybe making "sequels and new content". Which they've gone on to do…

Gibbing All The Way With Carmageddon: Reincarnation

Pedestrian-gibbing racer Carmageddon: Reincarnation [official site] may have launched out of Early Access in May, but developers Stainless kept on patching and updating away. Following two big patches considerably boosting performance, they've now dropped another adding two new cars, a new way to wreck cars, and other odds and ends for Chrimbo. Heinz Faust has returned once more with a new terrifying vehicle on tank…

Ready Steady Splat: Carmageddon Leaves Early Access

I have a soft spot for Carmageddon and I fear that the Kickstarted Reincarnation [official site] is going to steamroll over that soft spot and turn it into a gloopy red mess at the side of the road. After a prolonged stint as an Early Access title, Stainless Games' rebooted Deathracer launched yesterday. I've only played briefly - although I spent a few hours with…

Revving Up: Carmageddon Gets Last Early Access Update

Carmageddon: Reincarnation [official website] is very nearly out of Early Access Beta, which means you can start feverishly throwing together Finish Line puns while I grit my teeth. The game's last ever Early Access update is now out, which stabilises a few known issues, game crashes included, and sets a new maximum count of six cars in multiplayer.

MOT Failure – Carmageddon: Reincarnation Delayed

When midnight sirens lead to blue flash road mash, stretchers, covered heads, and slippy red maca- wait, wait, I'll have to rip off Jam another time. Carmageddon: Reincarnation [official site] was due to wrap up its stretch on Steam Early Access next week and join the glorious ranks of finished games, but it isn't. Finished or coming out next week, that is. Both. Developers Stainless…

Splat-o! Carmageddon: Reincarnation Adds Multiplayer

As Carmageddon: Reincarnation [official site] continues to smash, bash, dash, crash, and splash its way through Early Access, it's now reached a point where I'm starting to think about picking it up. Developers Stainless Games today launched the death racer's first beta version, meaning it's now the whole game with all its modes, cars, and levels, just a little unpolished. Yes, this does include multiplayer.…

Carmageddon: Reincarnation Alpha Update Crosses The Line

One curious effect of vintage series rebooting and reviving as 'Early Access' releases is that they don't make much of an impact. They meekly shuffle into the room wearing a taupe cardigan rather than down kicking the door in a leather jacket, carrying a six-pack in one hand and a boombox in the other, screaming "Let's do this you mothers!" Unfinished as they are, they…

Carmageddon: Reincarnation Ploughs Into Early Access

While many retro revival Kickstarters dreamed of bring back old genres or broader old design philosophies, Stainless Games had a far more modest goal: mowing down pedestrians in several tons of murdercar. Two years later, it's sort-of come true. Carmageddon: Reincarnation has now hit Steam Early Access at £19.99, giving an early taste of the vintage deathracer series' thrills, chills, and bovine kills. And hey,…
