Here's the launch trailer for Carmageddon Reincarnation, the Kickstarted game that needed your funds to help get up off the ground like a drunk old man becoming a polished member of society by evolving into a stock broker who doesn't commit suicide every time the market crashes. Congratulations on turning Carmageddon Reincarnation into a non-suicidal stock broker.
Anyway, Stainless Games has recently launched Carmageddon Reincarnation on Steam for Early Access for only $29.99. The game has launched along with a trailer that will offend some, create giggles in others and cause a robust flow of laughter out of the rest of you.
As noted on Team VVV, the trailer is straight-up offensive in the most Seth MacFarlane-way imaginable. In fact, I wouldn't put it past the Family Guy creator to have something of such similar ilk on the show at some point (if it hasn't already been done, similar to the whole chicken fight thing).
But getting back to Carmageddon – because this wouldn't be a proper advertorial piece if I started deviating and talking about stuff that didn't directly reflect some sort of promotional scheme, lest I fail the holy teachings of the Dorito Pope – the game features only three playable levels at the moment with a total of four race routes.
There are six playable vehicles in the game and tons of ways to wreck carnage and cause damage. And with a name like Carmageddon Reincarnation, the whole point would seem to cause massive damage and wreck as much carnage as possible.
I don't know if $29.99 truly justifies the price of entry for a game so small on content at the moment. However, Bugbear's Next Car Game launched at the same price on Early Access and had even less content when it first went live. So I guess, it all depends on what gamers feel is worth the price of admission and whether or not there's value in the Early Access program.
You can check out Carmageddon Reincarnation right now by paying a kind visit to the official Steam store page. If you're completely enthralled with that trailer and the old granny getting rolled over and gibbed like a arena showdown between a sitting duck and a rail cannon from Quake II, feel free to offend your family and friends by sharing the trailer. I'm sure conservative moms against violence will love it.
