The Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter is funded.
Stainless' $400,000 goal was met yesterday with 10 days to go. At the time of writing, $421,532 had been raised off the back of 10,833 backers.
"We MADE IT!" read an update on the Carmageddon Kickstarter page. "Thanks to ALL OF YOU for the support and backing so far! As you'll see, I don't have the power of speech or typing completely down at the moment (some would say, most of the time...) as I'm STUNNED at the speed it's happened this weekend!
"FANTASTIC job everyone... AMAZING! We got there with 10 days still to go! Have a BEER and a GREAT DAY! I'll be adding a message from the whole Stainless gang later, as we're getting together to CELEBRATE what YOU'VE DONE! "
Reincarnation is a remake of the original Carmageddon game. It'll launch first on PC in February 2013, then on Mac and eventually on PSN/XBLA.
Stainless has signed up to speak at Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show this summer in Brighton. Production director Ben Gunstone will recount, on stage, the challenges his team faced when turning to Kickstarter to fund Carmageddon: Reincarnation.
