Despite having avoided all exposure to yesterday's presidential debate, its specter has haunted my twitter for duration of yesterday evening. Yet buried somewhere in the sea of analyses - the prevailing opinion seems to be that Jim Lehrer has a skill for moderating debates typically reserved for coma patients - bite-size political opinions, and general exposure to things slightly more pleasurable than the late stages of syphilis, one things caught my eye: Carmageddon.
Indeed, this roll through the hay of ultraviolence is finding a happy little home on the mobile market: specifically, iOS. As developer Stainless Games revealed to Joystiq, the game has been submitted to the App Store, and is currently awaiting approval - something that Stainless hopes will happen by next week.
Carmageddon will be free for the first 24 hours, after which it will cost a whopping two dollars. The game will be getting a bit of a visual upgrade, and according to Joystiq, the opening levels will be "more accessible" for new players, due to some tweaks. While there is no multiplayer (something that will be included in the upcoming, Kickstarter-funded Carmageddon: Reincarnation), players can share videos of their exploits via Facebook and YouTube.
So if you're a fan of Carmageddon - your humble and obedient servants has fond, fond memories of such vehicular mayhem - check the App Store next week! For you in Team Google, Stainless Games is currently developing an Android version of the game, though details about when it will be released are unknown.
