IMPORTANT! Now's your LAST CHANCE to take advantage of the Early Access SPECIAL BUNDLE OFFER.

That’s the Carmageddon Max Pack (the original game plus The Splat Pack add-on/sequel), Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now, and Carmageddon TDR2K. All arriving with our compliments in your STEAM inventory!

Here are a few handy date-related facts, that should help you remember the launch date:
23rd April is St. George's Day (killed a dragon. Nutter. Hoorah!)
23rd April, 1982 saw the launch of the ZX Spectrum (we get several requests a day for Carma: R to be ported to it. We're evaluating.)
23rd April, 1616 saw the death of William Shakespeare (who if he was alive today, would be our greatest living playwright but would probably be rubbish at Carma, on account of being very, very old.)

Yes, as Shakespeare's Falstaff memorably said, "It's raining gibs, hallelujah!"

Any update on the OS X version? Is it planned? In development?

Any further optimization?!! Multi-core CPU efficient usage, nVidia SLI?
Don't bother stuffing your game with tonnes of content.
Better polish performance issues ;)

I knew this was comin' soon after seein' that last sale & the announcement that it was feature complete. All I can say is what child01 said. Get those performance problems nailed down & drop the requirements down to suitable levels. No dual should have trouble, never mind a quad or higher. Thanks for this Stainless. I'm excited!

Absolutely GUTTED!! have been looking forward to this announcement since backing a carmageddon remake with over £100, to find a game without the best multiplayer game mode from the original game SUDDEN DEATH and a Mario kart style power up activation scheme that also wasn't in the original. Sort it out SCI!!

To be honest, i am a bit confused... seems a " risky " move release the game with so many bugs and lack of adequate optimization... will the game be ready for this date?
I hope so!

I'd love to see the game ready for that date. It's just a month away.

Have you guys fixed the APPALLING frame rate issues and the shocking lack of optimization?

Also, the silly bug that requires you to install a specific Windows update or crash on splash?
