This meant all future DLC would have to be purchased, and that didn't sit well with backers who ultimately gave Stainless the opportunity to make Reincarnation.
The studio has now 'amended' the offer and is giving all backers who pledged $15 and over "the 'whole' game - including all future DLC." Every scrap of DLC will be free.
"The announcement had the unforeseen consequence of causing confusion and some disquiet among the community who have backed the game's development," said Stainless. "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."
"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," explained publishing director Jason Garber.
"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."
This means Kickstarter backers get early access to Carmageddon: Reincarnation, including all subsequent updates and developed content making up the 'whole' game experience. The over $600k raised through pledges is being spent on the core game, and not for DLC development says Stainless.
Carmageddon: Reincarnation will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
