    in hon you do have more than 100 000 users online very day all the time.

    its just one of the most played linux games thats a fact!
    None of those make it a AAA game. Development and marketing budgets are what determine AAA status.

    Very old game from the 90's. It was fun though in network clubs at the time.

    It's simply a crash'em car derby over a city landscape. Lots of jumps(big crazy jumps), power-up, etc.

    Funny the sentence "I haven't heard about this title previously until yesterday I began to be carpet-bombed with emails talking about this game possibly coming to Linux."

    I said it here and here and that's like 11 and 8 days ago.

    Weird.... oh and Michael *did* reply to me the second time...

    Because Q says it is?

    I know what you are getting at, but since I keep Windows around for games, I am not denied any of the over-hyped dreck I mention. It's merely a fact.

    @RealNC - In theory your complaint is valid, but similarly, what if you are the only Linux person contributing, and the remaining extra $200000 is all made up by Mac and Windows donators, then they'd effectively be paying for your Linux port.
    +1000

    and is why kickstarter is a bargain.

    you get the game for half the price and also get windows and mac users to push for the linux stretch-goal.

    and the publicity linux is getting is huge, which gets more users and developers on board.

    when you reach developers/projects early, anything is possible.

    We are actually getting Windows users (many may had ever even heard of linux till now) work for us here. The way it should be !

    this is what i call crowd-sourcing

    AWESOME

    I spent so much time playing Carmaggedon when i was a teen.

    more than squashing pedestrians it was more about the fierce competition, the physics and huge replayability, really ahead of its time.

    I hope we can make it !!

    Good observation, but also not a major loss. We all like our blockbusters, but the AAA market is largely filled with over-hyped dreck. I'd much rather have a publisher like Paradox bring some of its titles to our platform.
