FREEBIES! Carmageddon: Reincarnation Early Access Giveaway

Carmageddon: Reincarnation's pre-alpha Early Access is available for you to try out right now over on Steam for £19.99 of your finest British pounds, but Stainless Games have also been kind enough to send us five download codes to giveaway, along with five hilariously rude sets of magnets.

Ever wanted to spell out "Max Damage is fisting a velociraptor with tiny grannies" on your fridge? Well now you can.

To get stuck in and land yourself with a chance to win some Carmageddon Early Access and a sweet sheet of sweary sentence construction, all you need to do is pop a comment in the box below detailing your idea for The Greatest Carmageddon Power-Up Ever! Remember, there are three ways to win at Carmageddon -- Racing, Wrecking, and Running Over -- so be creative. We already have repulsification, pelvic thrusting, pinball wizardy, dancing pedestrians, turbo boosts, and kangaroo hopping... but what power up would you add to the game to make it even more awesome?

Let us know below, make sure you use a legit email address for your account, and be ready with a UK mailing address should you prove victorious.

We'll be running this one through to the end of next week until 3PM on Friday 4th April and we'll be picking five winners based on invention, humour, downright silliness, and how well we feel they'd fit into Carmageddon. Hell, we might even see which ones Stainless like and do it that way. Get creative, people!

The 'dancing pedestrians' concept needs to be taken further, with the pedestrians forming an orderly conga line in the middle of the road. Basically recreate GTA's hare krishnas without infringing any copyright

Also - zambonis. You know it makes sense

A powerup that gives all the pedestrians Kim Jong-Un haircuts. To be called 'NKut'.

You could also turn that into a 'group hug' where they all cluster together for easy smooshing.

Seeing as most powerups tended to be ped-affecting or messing with car physics i'd suggest something different like the old ball and chain, two big metal balls with some sturdy chain between them that you can fire out the front of the car, good for smooshing, or dealing with obstacles/cars.

The power up that just popped into my head is ....

Dancing on the Ceiling!

Would only work on certain areas or certain levels that are underground or indoors. Once activated everything switches on to the ceiling (but the screen remains the right way up to the player) and the pedestrians all have big afros and white suits on. Also possibly some 80s disco lighting whilst it is active.

Oh what a feeling.....

A power-up that makes all the peds suicidal bombers. They could run at your car and explode on contact causing blood splatter on the screen (obstructing view).

Or maybe one that makes your car grow with every ped you run over. When the timer expires your car lets rip with a turbo based on your overall size. Call it Oh nom nom nom.

ProfSaurus  Mar. 28, 2014 at 22:02

i'm thinking a power up that turns the front of your car into a carnivorous maw, full of spinny blades and sharp bits of metal. Instead of being squished on contact, pedestrians are dragged into the vehicle and bonus points awarded - after a moments delay and accompanied by a sound not unlike that of flesh being rended, the grisly remains exit the back of the car at high speed in the form of a cloud, which doubles up as a handy smoke screen.

Or just turn the vehicle into a T-Rex for a bit. Because who wouldn't want to be a T Rex?

How about a group of gnomes get catapulted towards your victims car, out of the hood, they start bashing their vehicle with clubs and trying to smash their car windscreen. If you catapult them at a pedestrian they start gnawing at their ankles.

VRRRROOOOOOOMMMM, wake up....... time to drive!

Brrrrruuuummmmm  Mar. 29, 2014 at 12:29

A power up much like the Mario blue shell, turns your car into something like that but far far cooler and spikier, on the way to the pole position it gathers up pedestrians on it spikes who all go splat on contact with the lead car, bloodage.

Super handling, no loss of traction.
Credit thief, grab a percentage of rivals credits.

The most devestating and catchily-named powerup of them all:
the Saturday Morning Elderly Single Post Office Cashier Effect, or SMESPOCE if you like....
On initiation, the pedestrians start to queue and queue for the post office placed on the course somewhere ahead of you, whilst the elderly cashier fumbles around and singularly fails to serve anybody in less than 10 minutes per person.
The beauty of it is that the longer you leave it, the longer the queue of poor suckers will extend out of the door, and you're actually putting them out of their misery when you mow them down!

A wolf cannon at the front of the car which is raised out of the front of the bonnet. It shoots lots of wolves out and they eat all the people and even the cars.

My power for the car would be black oil coming out of the exhaust and then a flame flower comes out of the back lights and then sets it on fire and leaves a trail of flames!

Pokemon fire

It transforms into a monster truck that crushes cars and flattens them. Then they blow up into fire.

alistair97  Mar. 31, 2014 at 12:13

shoot a piece of bread at your target car were lots of birds attack the car and tear it apart name the black birds

FlairSonicSlayer  Mar. 31, 2014 at 12:13

• Cars can boost and smash the other cars.
the best game of racing is that when some people playing some game, having fun and having crush, boost and smash the other cars so it was really good game.

A Blood gun - You gain blood power ups through driving over people, which fuels the blood gun. You then shoot it at other people’s windscreens to make them crash or slow down.

sallycinnamon123  Apr. 2, 2014 at 15:47

Baby boom

use this power up to add an instant arrival to someone's car, it will scream and take the driver's attention away from the road, take a dump and after a while the toxic fumes will take over the driver and their vision will start to fail, causing them to crash. Add in the extra ‘chundercats’ add on and the baby will spew all over the windscreen, causing vision problems, and finally add in a dirty protest and game over…..

Everybody gets free health care (whoop!) but the driver gets to invade everyone’s privacy and see their stats, location, and internet search history…

Obamageddon! X) X) X)

Genius :D

Your car attracts all the discarded panels and parts from your opponents' cars, leaving you driving around a giant armoured Frankenstein's monster vehicle.

zaphod  Apr. 4, 2014 at 11:25

A power up that turns all pedestrians into famous politicians! Who wouldn't love to mow Cameron down and then reverse over him?

Yukes  Apr. 9, 2014 at 11:52

Any word on the competition guys? Dearly hoping to be able to annoy the missus with crude remarks on the fridge, and a bit of Carmageddon fun wouldn't go amiss either!
