was originally released on DOS in 1997, with ports to Windows, Mac, PlayStation, Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color, with over 2 million copies sold. Carmageddon 2 and Carmageddon TDR2000 were both sequels released in the series. The series has not had a new title since 2000. Carmageddon 4 was to be released in 2005, but was placed on an indefinite hold by maker SCi, and later Eidos.
The goal of Carmageddon was to win by one of three methods: win the race, waste all opponents or kill all pedestrians. The original game was subject to censorship due to its graphic nature. Brazil banned it outright. Germany had the human pedestrians replaced with zombies and robots (with green blood and black oil respectively). The British Film Classification Board even banned it for awhile. Previouslyish
"Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humor and comic violence that made the original game such a success," said Stainless Executive Director and Co-Founder Neil Barnden. "All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt."
