Calling All Backers!

Stainless is Listening!
ALL KICKSTARTER/PAYPAL BACKERS WHO PAID TO RECEIVE THE GAME WILL GET THE FULL GAME PLUS ALL DLC!
Thursday, 26th September 2013. Isle of Wight, UK. Earlier today, Stainless Games Ltd. announced its Early Access plans for the release of Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Steam in Q1, 2014. Stainless also talked about how the final game would be followed by DLC packages to signal the company’s continued commitment to the game beyond the “final release”.
However, the announcement had the unforeseen consequence of causing confusion and some disquiet among the community who have backed the game’s development. Some commentators in the Kickstarter community made the point that it seemed unfair that the Backers weren’t now going to get the “whole” game – including all future DLC.
Jason Garber, Publishing Director at Stainless, said, “As the day went on, we kept discussing the feedback from the community, and it became clear that they had a valid point. And so we’ve decided to act on that point. We’ve concluded that the fair thing to do would be to make this announcement – that EVERY Kickstarter and Paypal Backer who pledged the $15 and above for a copy of the game will be eligible to get The Full Package. They’ll get the full, final version of Carmageddon: Reincarnation and ALL DLC, for the REST OF TIME.”
Neil Barnden, Brand Director for Carmageddon, said, “We have always listened to the community, and felt that in this instance we’d clearly got it wrong the first time round. So it was imperative to make it clear how important the Backers remain to us, and deal with this as swiftly and positively as possible.”
