Update #19

We Passed the Half a Million Mark! CatArmHumpTastic!!!1!!

Honestly, I don't think ANY OTHER KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN will EVER be able to match this celebration of a milestone. Do you?

Sorry, the (terrible quality - thank you iPhone) video is too long, and somewhat rambling because I'm a bit drunk - but hey, what can beat a KITTEH ARM HUMP as a celebration of getting to the half a million milestone? NOTHING! That's what.

See you guys tomorrow Kickstarter CarmaFans - and WOW, THANKS THANKS THANKS AGAIN, from me and my RANDY LITTLE CAT! :D

      The eagle needs to get more damage on impact....plus... hidden power-ups (paulines knockers, humping hobbes)...from a true carma fan, plus love my new t-shirt!

      Oh and I must say that's an awesome video, It reminds me of my 'now sadly deceased' cat Stretch who was also 'Fixed' but still insisted on humping anything furry, I often laughed my ass off when he'd get it on with a cushion or stuffed toy...Classic :-)

      I would prefer a power up called Humping Hobbes where any car you hit will be 'mounted' and humped to death :-) LMAO!

      Creator Robert Loo on June 4, 2012

      Hey Nobby I have a new stretch goal in mind in honor of Hobbes, at 650K have a new power up added called "HOBBES SICKNESS" that cause all of your opponent cars stop and cough up a victim ball and roll over. I buy that for a dollar.

      Creator Chris Patterson on June 3, 2012

      I realize that the Multi-player is a "Stretch" goal, and while I'd love to see you hit it before the three days are out, if by chance we don't, is there any chance you'll end up making it an addon later in the games life?

      Just in case nobody has mentioned this, can we please have an improved "Cow Poker"??
      That was one of my favorites from Carmageddon 2, though the spurs were a bit heavy!
      please please please please????

      You know what i really like? You are making one the most violent video games in gaming history and you are like a big teddy bear, living with his wife, cuddling his cat while drinking a nice glas of wine. War on the screen, peace in life :)

      Hehe! Thanks for the overwhelmingly positive comments on the Update vid, folks! Hobbes has been looking very pleased with himself today - as if he knows that the whole campaign's success is actually down to his, um, "performance"...
      @ Peter Gumbrell: Catmageddon! Genius - I bet we could use that for some sort of kitteh related PowerUp! :D Heh, I'm slightly disturbed at the idea of a giant hybrid of me and Hobbes, though... ;)

      Ha, should have said 'Hobbes' not 'Nobbes', although a hybrid man-cat might also be terrifying :)

    17. Missing_small

      Creator Peter Gumbrell on June 3, 2012

      New powerup called 'Catmageddon', where a giant Nobbes suddenly looms over the environment like Godzilla or King Kong, and paws at the tiny cars to try and flick them off the racetrack. PuP lasts 30 seconds and getting caught = end of game, so all drivers have to try and hide.
