From all the games I used to play as a kid, 2 really stood out: Carmageddon and Total Annihilation. I could waste hours, even days playing them.
Last month a remake of Carmageddon got funded on Kickstarter. Today, the makers of Total Annihilation announced they’re Kickstarting (is that even a word?) a new game inspired by the original game from 1997. For
$20 (didn’t see the early bird slot) you get the game when it’s done (they’re targeting July 2013).
I am beyond excited about this and really hope they make their (rather big) goal of $900,000.
