Hey hey people, it’s a HEAD’S UP! Carmageddon: Max Damage is out TODAY, and you Kickstarter Carmafans who already own a copy of Carmageddon: Reincarnation will receive the new game FOR FREE – because it’s automatically added to your Steam Games Library.

Yes, the latest instalment in the legendary Carmageddon series is HERE, and it’s the biggest, most BASTARDLY yet! It’s got MORE cars, MORE levels, MORE pedestrians and MORE framerates! And it’s got trailers, wheelchairs, bikes and mobility scooters! It’s got everything for the discerning PSYCHOPATH!

And as a SPECIAL BONUS, we’ve added some extra content to the PC version of the game! We’re proud to present:


Across America and the rest of the World, the public have been gripped by election fever - as two of the least-liked meat sacks on the planet slug it out to become the Most Powerful Person On Earth. Now, for the first time, you can show those Presidential candidates what you really think of them… By MOWING THEM DOWN IN A VIDEOGAME! Not just once, but over and over again... Impale a horrified Hillary on the end of your mighty rod! Repulsificate demented Donalds straight to frigging CHINA! It’s FUN for the whole FAMILY!

Carmageddon: Max Damage for PC features 3 EXCLUSIVE NEW game modes:

Trumped-Up where every pedestrian is respectfully replaced by the Republican candidate for the U.S. Presidency.
Hillaryious in which you’ll meet nothing but duplicates of the Democratic candidate.
Mass Debate which features a politically correct balance of both candidates. 

Animals remain in the mix too – suitably accessorised… You haven’t lived till you’ve knocked the wig off of a penguin!

So, go to your Steam Library NOW, and get Carmageddon: Max Damage FOR FREE!

And just as an additional note, we would like to let all you Kickstarter fans know that we are still working to fulfil the Rewards that you’ve been waiting so long and patiently for.

Thanks, Kickstarter Carmafans!

    6. Jeffrey Woods on

      Scam artists, Fraudsters, Lying ass con-men... that's all Stainless is. Refund the people for the rewards you have no intention what so ever of delivering you sad f%$#ng thieves.

      I'm still not seeing this game in my steam library (Windows)...

    9. Ultros on

      Don't believe anything that Stainless Games says or promises! It's just a one big lie.

    10. Valeriy on

      Hope you guys and gals are ready for another "Linux can f@ck off for all we care" year from the developers! :-( Or, and "here goes nothing" for physical rewards as well.
      Seriously, maybe we should do something with this. A collective legal action, perhaps?

      Mac? Linux? 4 years later!! Come on deliver or refund... You said
      "It will just take us a little longer to deliver them to you! (Although it won't, as we're GOING TO MAKE IT!!) :D" so what is your definition of "a little longer to deliver" 25 years? what a joke stainless way to give a finger to your supporters!

      Never got my key to download the game on Steam or anywhere. Did backers even get a shoutout in the credits like these jerks promised?

      Over 1 year ago Stainless Games said they would have an update for the mac users we are all still waiting... you got our vote / pledge years ago but never delevered seems worse then or equal to the politicians your portraying in this update... would love a refund so I can put this crap behind me, you have ruined my fond memories of the original game and placed many cow pies on top of the series for me now..

    14. Chris Barrett on

      +1 for the DRM free version

    15. Justin

      Any update on the DRM free version of the game being delivered to the backers as promised?

    16. Ultros on

      Hello Stainless Games,
      I still haven't received my Carmageddon: Reincarnation game for my Steam account. Is it still on the way or do i have to forget the whole thing? I've been waiting it for a loooong time now.

      Leon Moor on

      "New game" heh bullshit. It's a patch + DLC. Did you know that some devs don't have to lie to their customers to stay in business?

    18. Mikko Rasa on

      Stainless Games, I despise you. It's one thing for a release to be delayed due to unforeseen technical difficulties. If you keep your customers informed and own up to any mistakes on your own part, most people would understand. However to promise something and then never mention it again despite numerous inquiries is utterly deplorable.

      Where is my Linux version of the game? Where are my physical rewards? Is this "Max Damage" release some sort of ploy so in a few months you can say "Oh, Reincarnation has been discontinued so all associated rewards are now null and void"?

    19. pirx on

      Valeriy 3 days ago

      Where is the Linux version of the game?

      Oh, I believe it was answered already:

      As for me, it is pretty clear answer. "Thank you for your money. Now, f**k off."

      Havin seen this I've even logged in here at KS for the 1st time in gowd knows how much time. Cos for me this gentleman just crossed the line a bit. Would like to do his teeth in if met personally. They have the audacity to troll they backers - hope they all get cancer ASAP.

    20. Paul Drager on

      Game showed up for me. Awesome!

    21. Navagon on

      So no physical rewards and this updated version of the game doesn't work either. All I get is the splash screen followed by a crash and I'm still getting deafened by the silience from Stainless.

    22. LepraSK on

      Now that was 50$ well spend, thank you very much!

      Any word on the DRM-free version?

    24. Njordy J. Saltley on

      And still no Mac version... Wonderful

    25. Leon Buijs on

      So once again, Stainless has time for side projects, but not for the Mac and Linux versions that funded the project. Of course. Just refunds us you cowards!

      Stainless Games,

      You are thieves. I want a refund of my Linux's version!

      Linaxe on

      I asked for a refund a while back with no reply (of course) because I PAID for a Linux version which never materialised.

      Has anyone any suggestion as to how we can combat this fraud?

    28. George Sedov on

      So, hm, dear devs, you do know that there are more than one country in the world, right? And that some backers may not give a single shit about US elections? Why exactly we should be excited about this again?

      Didn't see any Windows License in my Steam account. Please add one so i can play it on my Mac. of course you can send the license to me by mail too.

    30. Niko Hujanen on

      Had to drop by to say thank you! I used $15 to MAYBE receive a game someday. What I actually got: The new game (Reincarnation) - plus Carmageddon 1, 2 & TDR 2000. And now - a much later - totally new Carmageddon Max Damage. Thank you - I feel satisfied!

    31. Laurie Richards on

      Not showing in my Steam library :(

    32. Narann on

      That looks cool, thanks for make it free! Just that US Elections will be over when Linux version will be out... :P (I try to be nice but I'm kind of upset as you guess, I wait for this game so long... :D)

      Just how long are you going to postpone the release of the DRM-free version or just admit that you are never going to do it? I hate admit that even Braben didn't let us hang on to false hope this long.

      Gijs on

      Thank you Stainless. It has been a long run. But it has been worth it. Playing through the singleplayer again, reminds me how much content you put in the game. The new added content is great, the iron hawk is awesome. Desert map is huge! Caravans & trailers are fun to mess around with. Car splitting looks great. I'm really liking the new look of the game. Thanks guys.

    35. Mentoliptus on

      Is their blood blue and orange on purpose? I'd like it red :)

    36. Christian Dannie Storgaard

      So, by PC you actuallymean PC, as in the game we backed is finally releasing on the promised platforms, right?
      I'm other words, where's the Linux version?

      Stainless Games, lying more than any politician during elections. Stainless games forgetting its promises even more than a politician after elections.

      This is going to be glorious! I think debate mode seeing as I'm not from the US!

      Luke Ashdown on

      The creators are big on smack talk and acting tough, but don't have the guts to come out and tell Linux/Mac pledgers and buyers that they're not building on those platforms. Or are they too chicken to handle the few refunds that it would bring?

    41. Paul Weir on


      Why isn't Mac and Linux done? Why didn't you start them when you started Windows programming? If you did, why on Earth haven't you finished them? What is the stumbling block? Did you not employ enough Mac coders?

      If you didn't start the other versions until recently, why didn't you? And what is the actual exact real progress of these versions? If you haven't yet started them, then why?

      Please post as to exactly WHY we cannot play on Mac and Linux.



    42. Jeffrey Woods on

      Sure, great, swell... it goes wonderfully with the version of the software that that you promised 3 years ago but never delivered that will actually run on my computer. Thanks again for working on this crap rather then delivering on your physical rewards or Linux/Mac versions. Even better, thanks for completely ignoring us all, and refusing to comment for months on the undelivered rewards. I bet our stolen money spent just as well as the rest though, so congrats on that.

      Lee Dempsey on

      I am so excited for this news. I cannot wait to play this game. Making the effort to add two character models at the last minute really makes up for the continuous disregard for the high-tier backers over three years. No, really. It does. Everything is all better now. People don't need refunds or any of the promised rewards, they only need to be ignored constantly. Stainless should run for office too. They have nailed the ability to over promise and under deliver.

      Thanks team. The post-launch support for this game has been very nice.

    46. S.D. on

      Please take a moment to update your DRM-free backers, Linux backers, and OS X backers, on the status of their builds. It would be greatly appreciated! I hope it is positive news.

    47. Bruno V. on

      @Killian According to the newsletter that I just received: "All Carmafans and Kickstarters who already own a copy of Carmageddon: Reincarnation will receive the new game FOR FREE", so looks like everyone.

    48. Bruno V. on

      I was going to keep asking about Linux but with that political crap shoved in the game and Jason's comments I think I'm about ready to ask for a refund instead. @Creator, what is the prefered contact for that?

    49. ThomasN on

      Congratulations on becoming politicians yourself.
      Your skill in ignoring the questions about DRM free and Mac release rivals the best of them.
      I hope you will develop very small apps for phones in the future. Very small, tiny ones.

    50. JasonR on

      How are the Mac Versions or refunds looking?
