Aaaaaaaaand STRETCH 1 2 3 4..! All the Way to $750k!!

Hi there Kickstarter CarmaFans!

Well here we are with yet another Update for you, featuring a new video from Sim 'n' nobby Productions... Which we've put together to illustrate the theme of today's Update: MORE STRETCH GOALS!

We're AMAZED at how well we continue to do on the ol' Pledgeometer, and so we thought it wouldn't hurt to add some extra Stretch Goals in there, as we head into the final week of the Campaign. 

We're all confident that you'll BLAST us through the $600k Stretch Goal for Mac and Linux support.

So, we're going to STRETCH our GOALS even further... Let's see what we can do to exceed everyone's expectations... maybe even DOUBLE the original target!

First of all (and we cover it in the new video)... We're going to ask you to get us up to: 

$650,000! 

At this level, we'll be able to guarantee that Sim will be appearing in the game as the new Die Anna PratCam (this will be an option, even if we manage to get the original Die Anna to reprise her role. In this event, we'll create a new character for Sim!). As a BONUS, both nobby and Patrick will also appear - as PratCam movies for opponents Pitbull and Vlad! This will mark the planned start of a programme to create PratCam movies for ALL the opponents!

Our FINAL Stretch Goal will layer on the AWESOMENESS even MORE! It will need us to get to:

$750,000! 

Because at this level, we're committing to add not one but TWO (inter-related) extra features to Carma:R! Those features being:

Split Screen Support for PC & Co-Op Multiplayer!

These features will transform both local and online play! You'll be able to play split screen, with a close friend, in the comfort of your own home - playing regular competitive games, or Co-Op against AI... And you'll also be able to go online as a team or individuals, and take on all-comers, in regular MP battles or playing a whole new set of Co-Op based MP games! It'll take Carmageddon to a whole new dimension! Imagine actually working together, rather than smashing each other to smithereens constantly... WOW. NOVEL!!

We think this is such a good plan, we're SURE you can get us that extra STRETCH and make it HAPPEN!

So, please continue to PLEDGE on the Project, and keep SPREADING the word around the Wide Wild Internets! THANKS EVERYONE once again for your fantastic support, and let's make it a WILD LAST WEEK! :D

      Sim has got to be the new Die Anna

    2. Creator Angel Baker on June 7, 2012

      Are you playing Top Trumps?

    3. Creator Wim Piens on June 5, 2012

      Just filling in a couple blanks here:
      Well then nobbster, looks like we have a stalemate and you know what that means.
      Yeah well John's on nights and I'm borderline psychotic. Stops the voices ... for a while *snigger*

    4. Creator Roberto Elena on June 3, 2012

      @TutEvgen Definitely "voices " makes more sense...

    5. Creator Roberto Elena on June 3, 2012

      @Nisei Thank you VERY much! :-)

    6. Creator Yakster on June 2, 2012

      @ Nisei - amazing job - It's 110% "stops the Voices......" 'though...

      @ TutEvgen - they're not American, they're Brits :-)

    7. Creator Some guy on June 2, 2012

      According to the dictionary: vice, an immoral or evil habit or practice.
      I find it strange to decapitate grandmothers to stop an other immoral or evil habit/practice (with decapitating grandmothers being an immoral or evil habit/practice itself)
      The fact that killing grannies makes the voices in her head shut up makes more sense to me.
      Just my two cents.

    8. Creator Nisei on June 1, 2012

      No idea, funny there's no-one from the UK who can help out :)
      But "vices" makes perfect sense, why do you think "voices" makes more sense?

    9. Creator Some guy on June 1, 2012

      This is what I made of it,
      Yeah well [John's on] nights and I'm borderline psychotic. Stops the [voices??? ,makes more sense] - for a while

      With john being the boyfriend/husband, but I'm probably wrong, because Audio transcript agrees with me (never a good indicator) on "John"

      P.S. English isn't my native language either

    10. Creator TutEvgen on June 1, 2012

      Update #15 but subtitles still are not present. I am upset. I more than a half don't understand that speak. Thanks to Nisei, he helped to understand though about what speech. Sat down there at their America and do everything only for the fellow countryman.

    11. Creator Nisei on June 1, 2012

      Right then. I keep on learning things every day. Thanks.
      Only 1 ????? remaining then :) Any idea?

      OK

      No bloody way nobby!
      How can Well Sprung beat Topless?
      !
I win.
      No it's not!
      Well then nobbster, looks like we have a stalemate and you know what that means. 
According to the Cardmageddon rules, any disagreement over which card wins must be settled by whatever means the challenger chooses. 
Recommending rules to settle a challenge include cage fighting or hitting each other with hammers. 
So nobby, do you want me to take you downstairs to the cage and kick your ass - again?
      Wanna play again? 
You never know, I might let you win.
      Yeah and all our backers of a hundred dollars or more will be able to play it while they wait for Carma.
      Use the plasters for plastering shit, bandage shit with the bandages.
      
Yeah you got a lot of use out of this while we've been playing ain't ye.
      Yeah well ????? nights and I'm borderline psychotic. Stops the vices - for a while.
      What about another stretch goal!
      Hang on a minute, I never agreed to that!

    12. Creator Some guy on June 1, 2012

      Well then nobbster, looks like we have a [Stalemate] and you know what that means.

    13. Creator Nisei on June 1, 2012

      I've tried to make a transcript of what Sim is saying but since English isn't my native language there's a couple of words I'm missing. Can someone fill in those 2 ????? spots please? :)

      OK

      Will splat be be coming as In App Purchase or something? >.<

    15. Creator Wesley on May 31, 2012

      It's a bit much, but... the more the better

    16. Creator Chris Kay on May 31, 2012

      @daniel brenha
      When talking pure semantics, sure. In practice though, the Mac OS/Linux markets are so small in comparison to the market share of Windows that it might actually be a gamble. Sacrifice too much quality for availability and you'll risk alienating both groups.

      They are remaking the original Carmageddon, and the pratcam was one of several defining elements of that game. It's only natural that the original fans of the franchise would want that prioritized. Hopefully we can get both, but it seems unlikely.

    17. Creator GeekBoi on May 31, 2012

      I want online co-op, but 750k?? Too much!! What about lowering it a bit more... The perfect example of stretching goals: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crateentertainment/grim-dawn

      It is realistic and fair. I hope you will reconsider it. If you change it, I will increase my pledge!

    18. Creator matthias sweertvaegher on May 31, 2012

      yeah, lovely accent :) i always listen and look twice to get all the details ;)
      sim and nobby make a hilarious team :)

    19. Creator shorty42 on May 31, 2012

      oooo Nobby You naughty boy lol

    20. Creator Yakster on May 31, 2012

      It's lovely and Northern UK type accent. Londoners can't understand it either :-)

    21. Creator Roberto Elena on May 31, 2012

      I can't understand Sim's accent, I need SUBTITLES!!!!!

    22. Creator daniel brenha on May 31, 2012

      @chris kay, well.. more platforms means more users, witch means more clients witch means more preorders witch means more money for developing... a long term investment. Of course I'm bias since my main pc is linux.

    23. Creator Chris Kay on May 31, 2012

      Posted this to the wrong update, so here's a repost. :X

      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 truly 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.

      The cash flow shouldn't (depending on how well it's marketed) end with Kickstarter, so there is room for expansion once the pre-orders start pouring in as well.

    24. Creator Leshy on May 31, 2012

      132K to go. Come on people!

    25. Creator mike on May 31, 2012

      Split screen? what is this.. the early 2000's? What about people with multiple monitors? would we still be forced to use one monitor to do split screen? Also, makeing it possible to render from two different locations seems like it would involve dumbing down the render engine, as you would normally only be rendering what was visable from one POV... ?

    26. Creator Fabian on May 31, 2012

      God damnit Nate, now I want a Hunter Hunted Kickstarter. I remember playing that so, so much!

      Oh, and good on with the stretch goal! We need one for a million as well!

    27. Creator LowMoan on May 31, 2012

      I hope MAC support will be realised, also if you don't reach 600.000

    28. Creator Cody Jassman on May 31, 2012

      Split screen is the feature I requested twice in the reddit AMA's, and co-op split screen on my PC sounds too amazing for words. These features are so lacking in video games these days! I'm upping my pledge before the end for sure. I can't remember ever being so excited about an upcoming video game. Thank you for this.

    29. Creator Nathan Groves on May 30, 2012

      Split Screen!
      Around the time Carmageddon came out, a friend and I religiously played another split-screen PC game: Hunter Hunted. Split screen on the PC is good. Very good. Especially if you can do it with multi-monitor support. One powerful machine, three screens, three players? I'll be getting another wired Xbox controller.
      Sound is going to be kinda weird, though.

    30. Creator hotmumbo on May 30, 2012

      I hope we get a large surge is the final days (its quite common as the fence sitters which have clicked the "remind me" come on board) to push this past 600K. I've already double my pledge so am at my limit. I just wish these great KS projects were better spaced out - we just had Larry(pledged), Shadowrun(pledged) and Jane's Moebious(could not afford to pledge). Now we have Carmageddon(pledged), Two guys from Andromeda(considering) and just recently Sam Suede(considering) start up. This does not even take into the awesome graphic novels/animation KS projects that I have supported or want to support. Aaaaarrrgggghhhhh! - freakin out here over the goodness I can't afford!

    31. Creator MemoryKill on May 30, 2012

      The total keeps going up and down...weird

    32. Creator Wintch on May 30, 2012

      Sim will do just great as Val Hella driving the Cleaver. If you cant locate Faye ill vote for her as Die Anna also. One week to go :)

    33. Creator Ryan Hamm on May 30, 2012

      Actually it's not just 7 days. They'll allow paypal donations after the kickstarter campaign is over. To make it in 7 days they'd need to average 19 - 20k a day. They've actually been close to that the past several days.

    34. Creator MemoryKill on May 30, 2012

      600k in 7 days...hmmm...not being a downer but i don't think we'll make it, if all the $15 backers doubled there bid however, this may pick things up a bit but id be realistic guys, i dont think we'll get to 750k in 7 days BUT WOWOHHWWWWWWWWWW would be amazing if we could! I'd so pledge more if i could be, here is hopeing to get as much $$$ as possible, goodluck guys! sounds amazing.

    35. Creator Christian Wallis on May 30, 2012

      Fantastic. I was wondering - let's say everything goes dandy and the game gets funded and sells well and there's a happy ending. Would there be room in the franchise for a hd remake of either carmageddon 1 or 2?

    36. Creator Peter D Ryan on May 30, 2012

      I agree with BootLace... she should be a secondary character. I want the original Die Anna back!

    37. Creator Gabriel on May 30, 2012

      Oh my god, Split Screen!? That would be awesome! Kinda hard to achieve US$750,000 in so few days, but well, we just need to keep hope alive ^^

    38. Creator blehz on May 30, 2012

      co-op is awesome!
      Not into split-screen anymore, that's so 90's :)
      It's great to see these stretch goals though!

    39. Creator BootLace on May 30, 2012

      Sim should be Max and Die Anna's illegitimate love child.

    40. Creator gav on May 30, 2012

      jesus! how many outtakes did these take?!! LoL!!!

    41. Creator Hernan on May 30, 2012

      So, are we going to have lesbians in the game?? Sorry, too much pr0n.... XD

    42. Creator Yitzchak Schwarz on May 30, 2012

      What about support for multiple monitors and multiple keyboards, so each player can have his own when in "split screen"?

    43. Creator Eugene on May 30, 2012

      And about $50K on PratCam. It's not $50K, but $50K minus 10% to Amazon and KS, minus expenses on physical rewards and minus taxes. And we don't know how much actors will demand.

    44. Creator Kaos2K - Diego.A Fernández Martínez on May 30, 2012

      @Eugene: Yes we should wait but if they are going to announce that it is better to do it soon to have time for the new backers to come in and pledge :)

    45. Creator Joel Segerbäck on May 30, 2012

      @Kaos2K - Diego.A Fernández Martínez Oh, didn't see that. Kinda odd, but Carmageddon might be a big enough franchise that they can be reasonably certain to get published there.

    46. Creator Eugene on May 30, 2012

      @Kaos2K: Well, they didn't say in this update that they are not going to make X360 and PS3 versions. I guess, we should wait for clarification here.

    47. Creator Björn Fallqvist on May 30, 2012

      Meh, none of the stretch goals interest me at all. And don't focus on getting enough money to release it on consoles, focus on the PC version instead.

    48. Creator Eugene on May 30, 2012

      Sim is good. But Sim and Faye are better :)

    49. Creator Eugene on May 30, 2012

      Sim is good. But Sim and Faye are better :)

    50. Creator Schiumo69 on May 30, 2012

      SPLIT SCREEN !!! OH MY GOOOOOOOD !!! I LOVE IT. If I may make a suggestion add to the reward a carmageddon 2 gog copy to the 45$ pledge if you want redouble the offers for the game
