      Can you guys please share with backers of Carmageddon:Reincarnation what is the status of Mac and Linux version of the game and where is the DRM-Free build of it?

    2. Creator Jeffrey Woods on November 18

      Here we go again, asking the dead air of this forum if you ever intend to either honor your commitment to a Mac version, or intend to refund us Mac users our money back? By the way, this exactly why I won't ever support another software Kickstarter... you sucker people in with Mac & Linux support claims then only ever deliver the PC version, leaving us out to dry and don't even bother to reply to us. Because we clearly don't matter to you to begin with. Thanks for literally absolutely nothing.

    3. Creator William on November 11

      So uh...when's the DRM-free version coming out?

    4. Creator Ziddan on November 8

      Hello guys! Just had a go at the game for the first time and ive been enjoying it a lot for a couple of hours straight.
      Anyways, the reason i decided to pop in here was to check if i can update my backer survey answers, ive moved since filling it so its currently not pointing where im living.
      Can i fix that somehow?
      I would hate missing out on the boxed game and other backer rewards when they get sent out.

    5. Creator Jonathan Sweet on October 30

      Truly a shame. Contributed because of Mac support, but looking at the reviews on Steam it's probably not even worth playing. I remember the original which I loved, maybe it would have been better to leave Carmageddon in the past.

    6. Creator Jeffrey Woods on October 29

      I supported this kickstarter because of the promised Mac support... and there is still no such thing. Do you intend to make a Mac version or was my money taken for nothing?

    7. Creator Michael Kedl on October 29

      Any Linux time frame yet?

    8. Creator Tom Surace on October 29

      Hooray, optimizations and tweaks! I can not properly express how this game fills me with joy, probably due to mommy issues and a lack of communication skills.

      My sympathy to the Mac owners. I have confidence it will happen eventually but "eventually" is not "now" and that is sad.

    9. Creator Gary Minato on October 6

      Hey Noddy - what's going on with the Mac version - I assume the lack of comment or news about this means it isn't going to happen? Please let us know if it's not too much effort ... well just let us know anyway ...

    10. Creator Matthew on August 26

      So what's the news regarding wheel support? I didn't see anything in the options about wheels but I didn't want to bother setting up my wheel if the answer is no. If it doesn't is this still a planned feature?

    11. Creator Talcon on August 26

      I guess you're proud of the fact that you released the game with 350 bugs that needed fixing? What was for Early Access for, again?

    12. Creator Tyrmorr on August 26

      What about those of us who requested a DRM free copy? When are we to receive this? No word of this in official kickstarter emails has emerged for a good while, not impressed.

    13. Creator Alex Heyer on August 24

      Hi there,

      I was wondering about it. So first great thing is that the mail did not yet got lost. I hope you don't loose too much on the extra shipping.
      Anyway I am glad that you are trying to make the boxed game better because the released one was not fluid and polished enough and the multilayer not up to today standards.
      Make it butter smooth and it will be the fun game we are waiting for.

    14. Creator KRS Deamon on August 24

      I'm glad there's an update bit I didn't mean for jou guys to rush things.. I could have waited untill everything was finished so there wouldn't be any extra costs for you guys.

    15. Creator Tory Republic on August 24

      Still waiting for the Linux version as well...

    16. Creator Jeffrey Woods on August 24

      Yeah I am pretty annoyed that Mac support was originally promised and nothing has been delivered or even commented upon. Us Mac users essentially just donated our money to you for no reward at all. :(

    17. Creator Ziv Kitaro on August 24

      Will there be a mac version? Is it something you decided not to do?

    18. Creator Thomas Archuleta on August 24

      @Jason Taylor I too have been waiting on a Mac version. The promise of one was a reason why I decided to back this in the first place.

      However, I hope they finish optimization of the base game before they tackle this. Who wants a game that'd probably run in the single digits on low settings on even machines with good discrete Nvidia or AMD hardware much less Intel.

    19. Creator DarrynReeder on August 18

      Kinda getting annoyed and feel frustrated and lied too, ok the game is quite fun but the lack of clarity about the $150 physical rewards is frankly disgusting...

      The physical rewards are currently ~900days overdue.

    20. Creator Jason Taylor on August 12

      Mac Version??

    21. Creator Patrick on August 11

      Sorry if I am overlooking something obvious, but does anyone know what the recent exclusive DLC is, and how I can activate it on Steam? I don't see an entry for it when using the Humble key resender.

    22. Creator ain on August 5

      Physical rewards when?

    23. Creator Mike Dennis on August 4

      Is there any way to get a partial refund when the creator of the kickstarter doesn't even seem to make an attempt to fulfill physical rewards or even comment on it? I'm guessing there isn't, but I thought I would at least ask. This is the first kickstarter that I've had something like this happen. I really can't believe that I pushed this as much as I did during the campaign, only to get screwed over by not receiving ANY of the physical items at the level I supported. I even gave the suggestion about local multiplayer that they ended up going with, which silenced a lot of the complaints from non-DRM people on here. I'm honestly really disappointed in Stainless Games for the lack of communication about this. A large portion of the campaign was around the physical rewards, that none of us have received (from the look of these comments). I generally base my support on kickstarter based on what seems like the creator's ability to make the listed rewards, but now it looks like I need to try to factor in that the company might just not care about their supporters... :(

    24. Creator David on July 29

      I can't find the DRM free version in my humble bundle? It just displays a steam key button. Could you guys send me a link or explain how I download the KS DRM free version?

      Thanks :)

      I Can't wait to play your game. So many good memories tied to the original game.

    25. Creator Tijmen Mulder on July 28

      Found it, thanks.

    26. Creator Josh S on July 28

      Looks like we're out of luck Mike. You can see for yourself that Stainless is ignoring multiple questions relating to the physical rewards.

    27. Creator Mike Dennis on July 25

      I am wondering what is going on with the physical rewards too... I did the Kick in the Box level too, and have not received anything physical yet...

    28. Creator Stainless Games on July 24

      @Tijmen Mulder You should be able to send your additional copies of the game to your friends by using your Humble download page. At the bottom of this page you should find links that you can send to friends which will enable them to claim their own Humble download pages.

    29. Creator Tijmen Mulder on July 23

      Still waiting for 3 of my 4-pack. please... I want to play it with my friends.

    30. Creator Josh S on July 21

      KICK IN THE BOX: It’s the one everyone’s been waiting for! The GAME. On a DVD. In a BOX! We’ve done the math and it will only slightly bankrupt us. We’re adding the boxed game with the manual and game on a printed DVD in as a $150 level Reward. If anyone who pledged $350 wants to drop their pledge to $150 as a result, then please feel free! If anyone currently going for the t-shirt or bumper sticker level rewards wants to swap their pledge to the boxed game offer, now’s your chance. (+Previous Rewards below $150) (At $350 level, you’ll get all three $150 Reward offers.)

      Estimated delivery: Feb 2013
      Survey sent: 10/24/2012

      We are 2 1/2 years past the estimated delivery. We have been more than patient.

    31. Creator Josh S on July 21

      Physical rewards backers still being completely ignored I see. I don't even want to play this game, I just want my physical rewards please and thank you.

    32. Creator Martin O on July 18

      @ThomasN: I think you meant another game. Interstellaria was released yesterday on Steam, Humble and also GOG. Backers got Steam + DRM-free download via Humble.

    33. Creator ThomasN on July 18

      Another month being ignored. Regretting I was part of the hype train. It's funny watching people begging about DRM free downloads on finished KS games (newest example: Interstellaria). Why funny? Because it happens soooo often. It seems like wrapping your game up in DRM bullshit is rrrrrrreally important once you release your game. And just making a .zip of the version without it you already have and putting it on some direct download link? No sirreee, make up some excuses about how we not came on GOG and fuck them, I guess. Well, fuck them too.

    34. Creator nadeem on June 24

      when the linux version will be out i am waiting for long now????????

    35. Creator Tobias Bauer on June 22

      Any news about shipment of physical rewards for tiers $150 and up?

    36. Creator ThomasN on June 19

      How you just ignore the round about 10 people asking for what's up with the DRM free version here and in the thread of latest update speaks volumes, nobby.

    37. Creator Ropya on June 15

      So for those, like myself, getting the fog effect when trying to play the game.

      Its because the game is Direct X11 ONLY.

      It has NO backwards ability for DX10 cards like many games do.
      So effectively, upgrade your card or chalk up the fact you are out X dollars for supporting this company.
      Being a laptop with a 285m, I cant upgrade, so Im toast.
      Requesting a refund, though I doubt anything will come of it.
      Good luck to everyone with this issue, which there seems to be no small number of.

    38. Creator Sjeng on June 15

      @Everyone with questions: head on over to and sign in there. Not sure, but I think every backer has an account. My account says I've backed the KS, and shows an icon with "KS", so I think I had an account somehow, through this KS, or perhaps an email we all got. Can't remember.

      Anyway, the people there will be able to help you, and there's a support function too.

    39. Creator Blake Stephens on June 13

      Sure would love to reiterate how great even a morsel of Mac news would be to hear. Bad news? Good news? Beta? Pre-alpha-dev-shitty-crashes-nightly-broken build? God, literally anything. I think 2 years is being pretty patient. Just something so we don't feel so completely and utterly forgotten about, ya know? I'm a big fan, always have been, since the old days in the mid 90's when you had to get Carmageddon Mac Demo on a CD in the mail. I've bought every version that's been released for Mac, and I bought two copies of this, way early on in 2012. I argued dozens of times in your favor, against skeptical parents and teachers that this game wasn't evil and it was just fun to play. I'm totally on your side here. I trust that you'll (probably) deliver, but I just need something back from this comatose issue. I'm sure there's only one or two devs working on the port, and they probably don't want to fork master until all of the big perf stuff is merged, but why not just say that to your loyal fans? "Look, we're making it, but we want to start porting from the best possible version to make our job with our limited resources more effective, so you get a better product." I... we, would really appreciate it. Please feel free to contact me directly. If it's an issue of money, I can pledge again (others probably aren't so willing) if it's a matter of needing more capital; I just want the game I love, back on a Mac, where it belongs. Played it on Windows a bit and it captured the feel of the old games so well, it really made me miss it.

    40. Creator Halion J Abramovitch on June 12

      when will physical rewards be sent??

    41. Creator William on June 3, 2015

      Any estimate on when the DRM-free version will be available? My backer page on HB only shows a Steam version.

    42. Creator gonzo on June 2, 2015

      Hi, I have backed the project and I didn't receive my reward. From what I am reading I should use the resender from Humble Bundle. I did, but nothing from you guys is there.

      Is there anything else I need to know?

      It might be something silly, but I can't find it anywhere.


    43. Creator Indyxt on May 31, 2015

      Any news about shipment of physical rewards for tiers $150 and up?
      I need a glint of hope in the ocean of doom that is the released game.

    44. Creator TutEvgen on May 29, 2015

      Shame on me that I was pledge for creating this shit. My name in title, oooh no, what the shame. never fogive myself for thise. Wound on full life. Ugly fill bugged game, fail of the year 2015.

    45. Creator Bill Colburn on May 28, 2015

      Two questions:
      1: How do I collect the bonuses for my pledge level (specifically the Red car and extra digital copy of the game)? HB claimed item only listed Steam key (collected a while back in beta so memory could be foggy on that).
      2. Tech support if anyone knows answer. Using a 21:9 monitor @ 1440p. Game options allow me to choose correct res but Auto aspect and menu only go up to 16:9. WSGF shows full native support so wondering what I'm missing.

    46. Creator Sjeng on May 28, 2015

      @dirtyd: well, I think you should try to contact about that, not Stainless. Seems to be a HB account issue.
      And I doubt stainless is checking the KS comments often if at all these days ;)

      I must say I absolutely LOVE the game so far. Addicted from the first play. Feels just like oldschool carma, looks amazing!
      I think it could still benefit from some optimization (slow loading times, occasional freezes, large install >10GB), but I'm happy I can play it.

    47. Creator dirtyd on May 28, 2015

      The Humble Bundle key resender is telling me they do not have any orders on record for my email address.

      I posted a message via the contact form on a week ago and haven't heard anything.

      After waiting patiently nearly 3 years, I thought the service might be a bit better now that the game is actually released.

    48. Creator Porcupine on May 26, 2015

      Funnily enough, my Humble page still lists the DRM-free version as "available later". Care to comment on why that might be...?

    49. Creator Tumor on May 25, 2015


      I must say, now that you claim the game is done. I went to play it again (haven't played it since the first early release on steam) and its is an unplayable mess. You people really need to continue refining this game because most people are pissed about the quality of it. You made the damn game for the PC and it is barely optimized for it.

      Im sorry I pledged my money to help fund this game. It was the first Kickstarter I ever gave money too. How on earth do you get off trying to charge people $30 to play this game that should never have went on to GOLD status. Ughh

    50. Creator Sebultura on May 25, 2015

      Ok, I pledged on this game, thinking it was DirectX 9 or 10 compatible, but it seems that it's DirectX 11 only. Is that the case guys? When I launch a race, all I can see is the HUD, then a full grey screen :/ (I don't have a DirectX 11 video card). Can someone confirm ???
