An anonymous reader writes: Stainless Games, the developers of the classic & controversial "Carmageddon" demolition-racing games of the 1990s, have been fundraising on Kickstarter.com to make Carmageddon 4: Reincarnation, a modern 2012-tech remake of the old 90s racing games, a reality for several weeks now. They overshot their original goal of raising 400,000 Dollars several days ago, and are currently at 550,000 Dollars pledged, with 32 hours remaining in the funddrive. Here's the kicker: If Stainless manage to reach the "Stretch Goal" of 600,000 Dollars pledged before time runs out, they will commit themselves to making a Linux version of Carmageddon 4: Reincarnation. For those of you itching to play good old Carmageddon again, with 2012-level gfx & physics, multiplayer over internet & LAN, and natively on Linux to boot, you have 32 hours to put your money where your gaming desires are. Lets hope Stainless Games can raise enough in the next day-and-a-half — the missing 50K — to make a Linux port of the next Carmageddon game in the series financially viable!
