Update #15

Kick Me in the Private Area!

Hi there Kickstarter CarmaFans!

Today’s Update is in the form of a Trailer, featuring previously unseen footage from the original 1996 PratCam filming sessions! These sessions, filmed in Hi8 video, formed the material used to create the Max and Die Anna PratCam movies. The footage has never been broadcast anywhere else before now (apart from a very short clip of Faye on an ancient videogame TV programme).

So, we thought it would be great to offer exclusive access to this footage to our Kickstarter Backers. The full-length filming sessions will be available to view in HD, from links in the Kick Me! Private Area – the forum on Carmageddon.com that will be reserved for Kickstarter Backers who pledged $25 and above (those of you at “Very Important Penguins”, “I’m AGOG” and above tiers).

A note about the Trailer: It features our madman stunt lunatic Tony Taylor (of course) as Max, and Faye Morey, schoolgirl superstar turned Die Anna for a Day. Oh, and there’s a brief guest appearance by someone else… Someone who I think you’ll all be very grateful, DIDN’T get selected to play the role of Max Damage… See if you can recognise the young vole faced behelmeted twerp…

Remember, the full length HD movies of ALL the original PratCam raw footage will only be available for our Very Imflammable Penguins,  AGOG tier and above Backers, in the Carmageddon.com Kick Me! Private Area. And rest assured you really will be AGOG, when you see the use a pool cue gets put to, in order to get the perfect shot..! :)

As if that wasn't AWESOME ENOUGH, as well as access to this super-rare footage we'll have another exclusive treat for you... A Q&A session between you the Backers, and our demon drivers Tony & Faye. YOU get to ask the questions you've always wanted to ask, and they get to answer the questions that they never thought anyone would ask! Both cast members have agreed to come out of retirement for one more interaction with their fans! 

(Note: the Private Area of the carmageddon.com will be live from the end of the Kickstarter Campaign, on 8th June. Due to the logistics involved in getting all your email details gathered and entered into the database to allow you access, there could be a slight delay before you have access. We'll do all we can to make it as swift and smooth an operation as possible!)

      @Chris: Being able to play a game at all is surely not behind a better in-car HUD for those who don't use Windows.

      @Frank: You can still donate money after the deadline.

      I wish they'd focus on the pratcam, as that was one of the major distinctions of the first game. That and the in-car HUD, which was exceptional at the time. I understand the demand for more platforms, but that should come behind quality of gameplay, at least in my honest opinion.

      Great Nobby ! BUT one thing there is only 7 Days left and i would love if we would reach the $750,000 Limit for Split Screen Support for PC & Co-Op Multiplayer!

      I think if we would had 14 days more we would make the $750,000 goal but only 7 days... i don't know if we can make that

      If we could stretch the end date of the goal too atleast 14 days more then i'm certain we can make the $750,000 atleast i'm gonna up my Backing up to alot more because i would love to see the $750,000 goal i'm even MOREEE Excited then before specialy because of SPLIT SCREEN and COOP sorry for CAPS i can't help it :D

      @Stainless WIll the actors also take damage during a race? With all the crashing and stunts it would be so nice to see some blood or bruises on them.. Or maybe have the characters die or enter a coma after getting hurt enough?

      While playing I would really enjoy the thought of being thrown through the windshield or frontally hitting and getting injured or killed by it :)

      @ Those of you having Age Gate probs... Our webmaster is looking into it! (Is anyone still called a webmaster nowadays..?)

      @ Nisei: We'll contact everyone after the campaign ends, to get their email details.

      @ Ed Boucher: Sorry if you consider it spam - we prefer to think of it as continuing to engage with you all, by trying to introduce other new cool little things we can do for you.

      I was really excited to find this old Hi8 videotape in the back of a drawer... I had to source an camcorder and ripping hardware so I could transfer it to PC, because I knew the Carma community would be excited to see it too!
